Hotels and resorts: Bathtubs with views in the UAE
Imagine Al Pacino’s golden tub in Scarface - but better
Forget rooms with views, the next top trend is bathtubs with views. While bathtubs might seem insignificant to some, they’re becoming more and more important to high end hotels and resorts in Dubai, with some going out of their way to provide ones with remarkable views of attractions like Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab. Naturally, we thought the subject was worth looking into. After all, who wouldn’t want a king-sized bathtub with the world’s tallest tower as a backdrop? Here are some of the best we could find: St. Regis Abu Dhabi: We love a good sea view, and we can’t imagine a better one than this bathtub’s in the St. Regis Abu Dhabi. Not a fan of sea views? Here’s one from the Taj Hotel Dubai overlooking Burj Khalifa. Want a city view? What better way to enjoy a bath than Sheikh Zayed Road’s skyscrapers as a backdrop? This one is in Jumeirah Emirates Towers. Let’s just say that you’re not a fan of city views. In that case, you should opt for the Underwater Suite at the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah for a view of an aquarium. Zaya Nurai Island is on our wish list when it comes to vacationing in Abu Dhabi, and this bathtub makes it all the more harder to wait. If you like a combination of sea and city views, try a suite at the Anantara Resort and Spa at the Palm Jumeirah. Isn’t its bathtub view remarkable? We always say that you can feel like you’re anywhere in the world in Dubai. This bathtub in Kempinski Mall of the Emirates proves it. It overlooks the mall’s skiing slope and already has us forgetting we live in a desert. Why have a regular bath when you can have it with a view of the sky and yachts at the InterContinental Hotel in Dubai Festival City. You can’t expect a bad view from anywhere in The Address Dubai Mall really, let alone the rooms’ bathtubs. The world’s largest fountain as entertainment during a bath? Only in Dubai.
