The best hotels recharge the body and the spirit. Encouraging relaxation in the bathroom can transform the experience for a guest, bringing wellbeing to the fore.

The centrepiece of a luxury bathroom is its freestanding bath. Traditional or contemporary, it should emphasise comfort and indulgence.

Yet so often the bath is left unused by the guest, even though it would enhance their wellbeing and make the stay more pleasurable. The objective of every hotelier should be to tempt the tired traveller with a long relaxing soak.

The right choice of bath will help. Victoria + Albert baths are cast from a unique material made from Volcanic Limestone, making it warm to the touch and gentle on the skin, especially in a matt finish. The addition of soft bath robes and aromatic bath oils can create the right atmosphere.

But what could be more appealing than the prospect of a glass of wine while sinking into a deep bath? Victoria + Albert baths’ bestselling accessory is the Tombolo, an elegantly sculpted bath rack with twin wine holders.

Set this up with two Tritan unbreakable wine glasses and the stage is set for a blissful evening’s dip. And include the room-service wine list on the Tombolo’s broad, flat base. Who could resist?
