There’s nothing quite like slipping into a deep, luxurious bath to revive the senses and soothe the soul. But a plain old hotel bath won’t do. What you really want is to soak up some spectacular views with your sudsy surrounds!
Want to take things to the next level? Wash away your troubles with these 10 dazzling Australian hotels that boast baths with a view:
Set on the deck outside the main pavilion, could this be the world’s most scenic bathtub? After a day of exploring Tasmania’s East Coast, indulge in a hot bath as you gaze out to the islands and rocks of Great Oyster Bay and listen to the soothing sounds of waves crashing below. A wood-fired sauna and outdoor shower are nearby too.
Enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your “glamping” tent at Paperbark Camp. We recommend the deluxe safari tent, perfect for romantic getaways with private open-air ensuite featuring a freestanding bath and separate shower.
In the Jungle Bungalows, a glass wall (albeit a thick one) is all that separates you from lions, cheetahs, tigers or a Malayan sun bear! Whether you’re relaxing in the lounge room, resting in bed or taking a leisurely bath, you’re only a heartbeat away from these incredible creatures.
For the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, head to Rocky Hills Retreat on Tasmania’s stunning East Coast. This unique retreat is surrounded by glass windows and divided into living, dining and sleeping sections. While the bathroom has everything you could ever need, including pampering foot spa products, the outdoor Huon Pine bath is the pièce de résistance.
It’s not all about the country; there are spectacular bathing experiences to be had in the city too. Try your luck at The Darling, The Star’s boutique hotel, with marble bathrooms, dual sinks, rain showers and a soaking tub, some with views to Sydney Harbor beyond to make you feel like a rock star.
There’s another hidden gem in Sydney – one where you can almost reach out and touch the Harbour Bridge from your bed. Pier One’s Harbour View Balcony Suite is one of our favourite rooms in Sydney. With 62 square metres of luxury living, floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the spectacular harbour views and a decadent open-plan bathroom, it’s simply sublime!
You might recognise this one as the set of McLeod’s Daughters. Kingsford Homestead offers five-star luxuries with rural charm, including beautiful rooms and dining experiences. But it’s the outdoor bush bath in a secluded corner of the property that really takes your breath away.
This one’s a little closer to home – just a few hours from Brisbane, you’ll find the Azjure Studio Retreat in the Granite Belt region. These luxury villas in a tranquil bush setting are close to restaurants and wineries; retreat for the evening and relax in the spa bath with a picture window to watch the wildlife beyond.
We’re in love with the beautiful township of Berry on the New South Wales South Coast, so we were doubly excited to find new luxury accommodation with one of the best baths with a view in Australia. Mt Hay is a secluded and tranquil hilltop haven with unrivalled position, outlook and quality. The magnificent outdoor baths boast views of the rolling hills of the South Coast.
This exclusive luxury lodge is located on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island, floating atop a secluded cliff on a rugged stretch of coast with views of the wild Southern Ocean. Those views are all the more special when you’re soaking without a care in the world. Total bliss!
