For me, the most important part of any hotel room is the bathtub. Not just the tub itself, but the view from it. Show me a freestanding tub with an incredible view and I’ll show you just how long I can soak. Our team of luxury travel consultants has scouted the globe for the best hotel bathtubs with a view – and they are incredible. Pour in the bubble bath – it’s time for a soak!

 Borgo Santo Pietro, Italy

The villa suites at Borgo Santo Pietro are a picture of Tuscan opulence and romance. The golden clawfoot bathtubs sit alongside ancient tapestries in the 13th-century villa and are bathed in sunshine pouring in through its windows overlooking the green valley.

Post Ranch Inn, California

Post Ranch Inn is built on a cliff 1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean, so you can imagine how beautiful the sweeping views of the dramatic California coast are from the large soaking bathtub in the Cliff House.
