What is the first thing you look at when you enter your hotel room? The view? The amenities? Or the bathroom?

Although it may seem odd, we are a people obsessed with bathing in style. There are now hotels around the world which accommodate this peculiar fixation, providing exotic and downright unusual bathrooms for guests to luxuriate in.

Where are these bathrooms and what makes them so weird, you ask? Well, keep reading to find out:

Olhuveli Beach Spa & Resort, Maldives

The pinnacle of luxury, the Olhuveli Beach Spa & Resort in the Maldives boasts undisturbed views of the Indian Ocean – which you’ll be able to enjoy from your Beach Villa. But it’s the villa’s bathroom which makes this accommodation really stand out. The bathroom’s claw-foot bathtub is situated in your own private courtyard, surrounded by tropical foliage, so you’ll be able to enjoy the resort’s serene atmosphere in complete privacy.

Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve – Earth Lodge, South Africa

Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is bursting with character, from the trees which grow through the guest rooms to the gorgeous views of the bush which it enjoys. You too will be able to enjoy the unrivalled views from your bathtub, which is located next to a large window boasting the best of South African scenery. Of course, you can always take a dip in the outdoor plunge pool which will take you right into the heart of the African bush.

Constance Halaveli, Maldives

The Maldives is famed for its remarkable views of the turquoise Indian Ocean and endless sandy beaches – and why should you be deprived of this view just because you’re having a shower? In your villa’s bathroom you’ll be able to comfort yourself with these stunning sceneries, as the floor-to-ceiling windows grant unlimited ocean views. Energise yourself every morning in your shower, or end each day in the bathtub, all the while savouring unparalleled vistas of the Indian Ocean.

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

Las Vegas is notorious for doing everything bigger and better than anywhere else in the world – and that ethos certainly extends to its restrooms! The Mix bar and restaurant in THEHotel has self-contained toilet cubicles which also happen to boast floor-to-ceiling views of the Strip. The cubicles’ black décor and fixtures ensure that your attention is not distracted from the expansive views over Las Vegas – visiting the restroom has never been so fun!

Naladhu, Maldives

Flush with beautiful views of the Indian Ocean and surrounding foliage, the Naladhu resort is one of the Maldives’ most decadent accommodations. Aside from the various amenities Naladhu offers, such as its fitness centre, spa and own luxury yacht, the resort also boasts a choice between Ocean Houses and Beach Houses – which are both as luxurious as each other.

As you settle into your spacious accommodation, you will surely be taken aback by the bathtub, which appears to melt into your own private infinity pool.
