Bath as Sanctuary: Dream Baths


In our fast-paced world, the bath space is often one of the last refuges of true relaxation. It is a haven where worries melt away and daily stress dissolves.

In the most exclusive luxury homes, baths are envisioned as true sanctuary spaces for indulgence and self-care. What defines a bath sanctuary is up to the homeowner. Is it natural light beaming inside, or special mood lighting? A luxury shower outfitted with hydrotherapy? A double vanity that allows for a clutter-free space? Or, a soaking tub artfully placed near a window for optimum view-gazing? According to the Best of the Best guide and the insights collected from Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialists, it's all of the above.

These exceptional properties for sale through the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury program celebrate the bath-as-sanctuary principle in near-perfect form.

Marathon, FL 33050

The Caribbean conjures images of serenity itself: turquoise waters lapping at shores, swaying palm trees, vibrant coral reefs. It's a place where the very essence of relaxation permeates the air, inviting you to slow down, disconnect, and reconnect with yourself and the natural world. You can see this very concept celebrated in the primary bathroom of this Florida Keys custom dream residence, a recent Home of the Week. Taking design cues from British West Indies architecture, a traditional clawfoot tub set against an imported Italian tile and coral wall practically calls you to soak in the tranquility of paradise.

Luxurious side-by-side showers and an extra deep soaking tub might seem like the only elements needed to create a relaxing bath retreat in most destinations. But when you're in a dream vacation locale like Hawaii, the term 'sanctuary' takes on new meaning. This Polynesian-inspired oceanfront paradise, nestled on 8.5 sprawling acres in Maui's Launiupoko neighborhood, brings these two luxury bath must-haves and seemingly connects them to nature. Wall-to-wall natural stone, a calming neutral color palette, and—perhaps, the ultimate indulgence—a view of lush tropical greenery (with Kaho'olawe, Lana'i, and Moloka'i islands in the backdrop), give the entire primary bath space a calming quality. What more could one want in the ultimate Hawaiian escape?
