The most posh hotel bathtubs in Hong Kong
Located on the 117th floor of the world’s highest hotel, the Ritz-Carlton Suite has a breathtaking view with few rivals in the world. The stand alone square tub and whirlpool is so amazing that you’ll want to keep your fanciest jewellery on just so you feel worthy. Don’t want to get your wobbly bits out of the bubbles for some more bubbles? Just ring your personal butler and have champagne and strawberries delivered straight to the tub. From $139,000 a night.
If you want to know what it feels like to die and go to bathtub heaven, the answer lies within the Four Seasons’ Presidential Suite. The gorgeous mosaic tile bathtub is surrounded with sparkling marble, crystal glassware and a 32-inch TV adjacent to harbour views. Bath amenities are from Bulgari White Tea. Naturally, there’s a butler service. From $98,000 a night.
The Presidential Suite at the InterCon is the largest suite money can buy in Hong Kong, and the master bathroom is pretty spectacular (it comes with its own private steam room and sauna). The Jacuzzi tub and whirlpool overlooks the harbour and skyline, and luxury candles can be set to burn from either side of the window for extra ambience. Bath products come from Chanel, oh la la. From $98,000 a night.
The W is one of West Kowloon’s sexiest locations and if you fancy splashing out on its most luxurious room, the Extreme Wow Suite, your eyes are in for a treat. The bath tub boasts gorgeous views of Victoria Harbour and the glistening islands beyond. There is also a built-in Bang & Olufsen television if the sights from the windows aren’t satisfying enough. From $20,000 a night.
A Disney hotel may not sound relaxing, but the bathroom in The Kingdom Club Suite is certainly fit for any Disney prince or princess. Here you can close your eyes and float away on an enchanted fairytale after a long day of queuing to meet Goofy (or Mickey if you really have patience). Fanatics can opt-in to have their suites decorated with balloons, soft toys, mirror stickers and more. From $7,000 a night.
The Peninsula has more than a few extraordinary corners, but the best is found in the en-suite bathroom corner of the Grand Deluxe Harbourview Suite. The chic black and white marble quarter comes with a view-tastic bathtub, three settings for mood lighting and bath products and fragrances from Oscar de la Renta. There’s also a hands free phone for those that need to call home and rave about it. From $17, 880 a night.
One of the most artistically beautiful tubs we’ve seen in a hotel, the Landmark Mandarin Oriental’s Entertainment Suite is home to a stunning freestanding Palissadro bathtub, crafted from one piece of marble, along with a custom-made champagne caddy. The bathroom is designed by award-winning Hong Kong architect and designer Joyce Wang, who just made steamy time well, steamy. Did we mention the bathroom amenities are from Hermes? From $128,000 a night.
Designed by architect Andre Fu, this bathroom in Studio 70 has a feeling of residential calmness with its walk-in rain shower and deep limestone-clad bathtub. Is there really any better retreat than a designer bubble bath overlooking Hong Kong’s thrilling skyline? We think not. From $5,200 a night.
The charming boutique hotel has a sexy mirrored bath in its Royale Suite, themed to old Hollywood glamour. Prepare to spend the majority of your stay in this sinfully fun bathroom with lavish decor – the only thing missing is a waterproof selfie stick. From $4,000 a night.
The Spa Suite at the Mira Hong Kong is a pamper party (don’t worry if you’re travelling alone – a toy ducky is available for company). The open-floor suite has a generous vanity area, en suite Jacuzzi bath big enough for two, with in-mirror TV and steam bath. Basically, it’s a spa in your own bedroom. And the suite’s Bose sound system means you can swap whale sounds for equally therapeutic noises from your favourite singer. From $6,000 a night.
