Puerto Rico's unobtainable bathtubs

By


Last month I took a press trip to Puerto Rico to tour destination wedding and honeymoon venues (full Offbeat Bride post RIGHT HERE!). It was a lovely trip, but I was keenly aware that many of the venues we were touring were TOTALLY out of range for 99% of my readership. We're talking $3000/night hotel rooms, $15,000 ballrooms, etc.

Rather than get frustrated, I decided I would start taking photos of some of these lovely venues' beautiful bathtubs so that we could all admire and be inspired. Most of these tubs are not in places most of us can afford, but that doesn't mean they aren't amazing!

Silver rooftop bath tubs at San Juan's Villa Herencia. These actually ARE attainable, since their room rates are under $200/night.

Yes, fine. This is actually a shower. A glass-encased shower in a bedroom at San Juan's brand new Hotel O:Live. Who wants to put on a show for me while I lounge in bed? HMM?

ERMAGERD. The moral of the story with this tub is that plants on either end of even a modest bathtub could make it look more awesome. Location: Su Casa at Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach

Modern! Sleek! Amazing. Oh and that window? A private outdoor shower. OMG WUT?! Location: Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach

Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach again, different tub. See the outdoor shower!? HOLY SHIT.

Oh deep, freestanding bathtub with a faucet in the middle… How I wish you were mine. Location: Su Casa @ Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach

Who wants to share some links to their own unobtainable bathtubs?
