Embarking on a getaway to somewhere new ignites a sense of adventure as soon as you walk out of your front door. Whether you are an adventure junkie or an all-inclusive kind of traveler, everyone deserves a little rest and relaxation now and then. From east to west, here are six soaking tubs to consider adding to your bucket list.
Guanacaste, Costa Rica – Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort
Nestled on the unforgettable shores of Costa Rica, this luxury hotel allows you to escape into what some consider the most beautiful country in South America. Private balconies with spectacular ocean-front views draw international visitors year after year, yet there are no long check-in lines. The Papagayo Resort does things differently. Private rooms are full of perks – complimentary nonalcoholic drinks, a straw hat and the unforgettable spa-like bathroom including a rain-shower and a large tub looking out into the tropical forest.
Washington D.C., USA – Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C.
If Central America’s jungles aren’t for you, try exploring the urban jungle! The capital city of the United States has plenty to offer locals and visitors from all over. With impeccable service and an uncanny attention to detail, the Mandarin Oriental knows how to make each guest feel like a foreign dignitary. The bathrooms may be spacious but they are also inviting. With a walk-in shower and soaking tub with a city view, guests are invited to sit back and relax with a terry cloth robe waiting for you when you get out. For a true chance to disconnect check out the hotel’s swimming pools and spa for a holistic retreat in a Zen-like atmosphere.
Vermont, USA – Twin Farms
This might be one destination you choose to visit just to take a dip in the tub. The Twin Farms all-inclusive resort offers many options for accommodations but we suggest the Aviary Cottage. 950 square feet of wood and stone including floor to ceiling windows. The highlight of this cottage is the natural stone hot tub resting next to a large fieldstone fireplace. If you’d rather enjoy the great outdoors while soaking, our second choice would be the Chalet with a hot tub on the porch. Escape from all your worries and cares and say hello to the great outdoors.
Quebec, Canada – Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello
The Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello is known as the world’s largest log cabin. The timeless resort is expansive, yet each visitor has a tailored experience. Be sure to ask about the availability of the Jacuzzi Rooms, the perfect romantic hideaway for a couple. In these suites, it isn’t just the bathroom that begs you to take it easy, the two-person Jacuzzi sits ready in the corner of the room for those times when your urge to take a dip is just too strong to resist!
Paris, France – Renaissance Paris Republique Hotel
Located within a stone’s throw of some of the most well-known attractions in Paris, the Renaissance Paris Republique Hotel still manages to make it easy for their guests to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. With rooms available for every budget, with great views, the real crème de la crème here is the hotel spa. The Spa O by Sothys relaxation and fitness center boasts a sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi and workout space. Be sure to spend at least half a day just lounging around here.
Hokkaido, Japan – Kiroro Ski Resort
Kiroro is proud to be the place for people who crave something different. Whether you are there for a lush summer visit or during prime ski time there is an unforgettable experience to be had every time of year. Imagine sitting in a two-level hot tub with open air views to the breathtaking mountainside just beyond your reach. With plenty of heart-pumping activities available for guests, you’ll be aching for a few calming moments in the tub.
