Out-of-the-world baths

Bathrooms can make or mar a traveler’s hotel room experience and are often the subject of intense scrutiny in travel blogs and review sites! Now Concierge.com has compiled a collection of the world’s most jaw-dropping and over-the-top restrooms. From embarrassingly opulent fixtures to quirky art pieces, here’s proof that the bathroom has come a long way as a lifestyle amenity! (perhaps important enough to take pride of place in virtual tours on hotel sites?) In the US, the obsession with art in the bathroom is less pronounced than in other countries and with good reason – most people don’t have the patience to deal with annoyingly inventive features (no tubs, no towels, glass walls!)
