We don't know about you, but we feel like it's been a long week. And one of our favorite ways to unwind at week's end? A soak in the tub. One of the first things we do when entering a hotel room is to duck into the bathroom to check the shower/bath situation. Tubs—or rain showers and extra jets in shower-only setups—usually elicit whoops of glee. So when we saw this photo of the tub from a guest room at the Centara Grand Bangkok we swooned. We may have seen bigger tubs in our hotel travels, but this one is just so damn cute in its roundness. (All that space around it is pretty appealing, too.)

The reviewers over at TripAdvisor give the tub—and the spacious bathrooms in general—a big thumbs up, and indicate that this baby is big enough for two. We give Centara bonus points for giving guests the rain shower experience and the soaking tub in one. (And how cute it must look with that shower curtain pulled all the way 'round.)

The good news? The Centara has rooms for up to 66% off the standard rate right now. We could snag a Superior Room for tomorrow night at just 2,550 THB—$75 USD! The bad news? It takes 17 hours to fly from New York to Bangkok, and it doesn't look like we can get there tomorrow for under a grand.
