Luxury Baths from around the world

I read this quote from Susan Glasse and thought I really must share it with you.  When life gets a little too hectic or even too dull a long wallow in a luxurious hot bath makes all cares, worries, aches and pains just float away. Yep I agree with all that!  Rub a dub dub how much is your tub?

I read also that Jonathan Ross once spent £40,000 on an egg shaped, ivory stone bath. It set me wondering… just how much money are we prepared to pay for our daily bath?
If you drive the world most expensive car and use the worlds most expensive gadgets, why not treat yourself to the world’s most expensive bath too.  A mere snip at £530,000 is the crystal bath tub. Carved from a single slab of rock unearthed from the Amazonian rain forest, this bath designed by Luca Bojola took 6 months to carve and fits up to 3 people. Pop up to Harrods and you might catch it still on show.

If you fancy a bath shaped like a boat and only have £111,000 to spend!  Then the hand carved bath made from malachite with its own solid 24 carot gold clawed feet is for you.

£50,000 will buy a beautiful hand crafted solid copper bath. 5 foot long and 3 foot wide it is unquestioningly the centre piece of any bathroom.
