One of the most important elements of a hotel room is its bathroom—a space for self-reflection, pampering, and ideally, a bath after a long day out. Space and comfort are key in the design, with some guests prioritising bathroom views and others preferring an opulent design as the winning feat. Here’s a mix of both—bathrooms that offer showstopping views or decked in grand interiors that make you feel like royalty. Without further ado…
