The Most Incredible Bathtubs From Around the World • The Blonde Abroad


The Most Incredible Bathtubs Around the World

One of the best things about traveling—aside from learning about other cultures and experiencing new places—is staying at incredible locations that you wouldn’t normally come across. Especially if that location includes a luxurious bathtub!

I’m talking a magnificent clawfoot one, or one with gorgeous views, maybe even something rustic up in the mountains. Because why not? There’s nothing more relaxing than enjoying a soak while on vacation. Oh, and that incredible bathtub up there? It’s located at Sable Alley in Botswana.

Here’s a roundup of some of the most incredible bathtubs from around the world!

Cottar’s 1920s Camp, Kenya

Cottar’s 1920s Camp Safari, Kenya

During my stay at Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp, I was immediately drawn to their canvas safari bath. The unique canvas baths are set up facing the savannah, allowing you to soak and relax after a long game drive. And who knows, maybe you’ll see some wildlife while you take a dip.

If you feel like splurging a bit, the Ritz Suite is complete with an oversized jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom which will leave you feeling like a true VIP.

Does stepping into a clawfoot bathtub and relaxing while taking in the gorgeous views of Kenya sound like your cup of tea? Mahali Mzuri literally means “beautiful place” in Swahili, which hardly begins to do this place justice.

Budapest, Hungary

Bonus: Budapest’s Baths, Hungary

While it’s not exactly a “bathtub,” what list would be complete without the baths in Budapest? My favorite is Szechenyi Bath—Budapest’s largest, grandest, and busiest thermal bath. It also happens to be the city’s first bath, dating back to 1913.
