10 Best Hotel Bathrooms
Where in Italy to find bathrooms so luxurious you feel like you have your own private spa!
Whether you're staying in a family-run B&B or a 5 star luxury hotel, there's nothing more disheartening than a badly appointed bathroom. Luckily, powder-room disappointment is becoming more rare, as hotels have begun to put more effort into this often-overlooked yet fundamental space, so much so that these days the best bathrooms might easily be mistaken for state-of-the-art ensuite spas.
Huge jetted tubs with chromotherapy, over-sized power or rain-showers, luxurious bathrobes, truly exclusive personal care products...plus televisions, telephones, and wifi for those who feel the need to stay connected even when they're abluting: from humble "toilet", the hotel bathroom has evolved into a indulgent space where travellers can enjoy blissful moments of relaxation.
The best hotel bathrooms in Italy? Here are ten favorites:
Hotel Punta Tragara - Capri
You'll have a hard time finding a bath with a more beautiful view than the one in Hotel Punta Tragara's 65 square meter Gallery Art Suite. From the suite's tub, you can soak while enjoying a truly breathtaking vista over the Faraglioni - Capri's legendary sea stacks.
Argentario Golf Resort - Porto Ercole
If you like your luxury to be chic and sexy, you're going to love the Argentario Golf Resort, a stylish contemporary 5 star property in Porto Ercole, Tuscany. Roomy free-standing or leather skirted baths, Bisazza mosaic and glass shower rooms, massive mirrors, stained timber floors: the resort's black-walled bathrooms have "adults only" written all over them.
Borgo Santo Pietro Relais - Chiusdino
If it's a romantic bathroom you're after, then Borgo Santo Pietro is the place for you. And after a day spent exploring the resort's 13 acre estate and surrounding Tuscan countryside, enjoy a leisurely soak in an old fashioned clawfoot tub in a bathroom lit by antique crystal chandeliers and the light pouring in through beautifully restored oriel windows...
Hotel Splendide Royal - Rome
"Cleanliness is next to godliness". Is there anything more heavenly than a soak in the jetted bath in Hotel Splendide Roya's Presidential suite, which boasts one of the most stunning views of Saint Peter's Basilica in the whole of Rome!
Belmond Hotel Caruso - Ravello
Breathtaking views across the Amalfi Coast can be seen from every room in Ravello's Belmond Hotel Caruso, including the bathrooms. For the most panoramic bathing experience, book one of this award-winning hotel's Exclusive Suites, with its marble bathrooms surrounding a circular jetted tub, double sinks, mosaic framed mirrors, and spectacular views of the sea.
Belmond Hotel Cipriani - Venice
Another Belmond property, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is one of the most luxurious properties in Venice - with some of the most luxurious bathrooms, too. Reserve the Palladio Suite and enjoy unforgettable views of the lagoon from every room, including the marvelous marble master bathroom.
JK Place - Capri
An enormous marble tub facing the sea, a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples, an exclusive selection of bath and beauty products and celebrity architect and designer Michele Bonan's eclectic design: these are all reasons why guests staying at JK Place Capri never want to leave their bathroom!
The Bulgari Hotel - Milan
Elegant marble, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden, a fabulous free standing tub, double sinks, gorgeous Bulgari Green Tea bathroom amenities (including aromatherapy sachets, candles, incense, and men's grooming set)... exactly what you'd expect from a company which produces some of the most luxurious jewelry, watches, and perfumes in the world!
Il Bottaccio - Montignoso
The wash basins by Mandy Voltz are an indication of the importance this 5 star country hotel located in a 17th century olive mill gives to their bathrooms. The best tub in the house? Reserve (well in advance!) Bottaccio di Montignoso's Royal Suite, with its truly unique 2 meter deep sunken bath made from an antique olive vat and framed by the original wood gears.
Mezzatorre Resort & Spa - Ischia
There's nothing like soaking in a bath while contemplating the sea, especially when that sea is the shimmering Mediterranean surrounding the island of Ischia! Flooded with light from huge picture windows, strategically located both near the tub and in the separate shower room, the bathroom in Mezzatorre Resort & Spa's Deluxe Suite is the perfect place in which to indulge in a little panoramic pampering.
