Grand Luxxe in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Grand Luxxe is the most posh of a group of Mayan timeshare resorts in the Puerto Vallarta area. The huge rooms and suites (complete with gigantic private terraces) are designed with some serious flair - including the bathrooms, natch. Check out the tub in a one-bedroom suite: The free-standing unit comes equipped with a little wooden stand for all your bath-time essentials. And should it get a little stuffy, open the French doors to peek into what's going on in the rest of your suite. Details: www.grandluxxe.com.
Hotel Le Bristol in Paris: The luxurious Hotel Le Bristol opened its doors in 1925 during the Roaring '20s. Today, it's still going strong and has a reputation for outstanding service. Rooms range in size and price, and have been reduced in number since the early days to increase the number of signature suites; the Honeymoon Suite features a stand-alone Turkish steam shower and this incredible soaking tub, complete with its very own nozzle (to cool you down or wash yourself off.)
