The Bathroom at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Will Leave You with an Extra Clean Feeling

Don't ask us how but last night we ended up inside a suite at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, the tallest hotel building in the world, and when we went to check out the loo, we squealed with excitement as we instantly knew we found an excellent Bathroom Tuesdays story.
The commode inside this specialty suite on the 116th floor has its own hand-held shower right next to the toilet, complete with a drain and everything. So, in a sense, it's a hand-held bidet.
But that's not the only luxury item in the bathroom. There's also a giant soaking tub with its own 26" flatscreen TV, Aqua di Parma toiletries and a massive walk-in closet. Oh and we can't forget about the views. We snapped a pic of the tub when the gilded doors behind it were closed but if you want to soak and stare, just push the doors back and voila! The whole of Victoria Harbour is in front of you.
We've only got snaps of the bedroom of the suite to show you but the room also has a ginormous living/working area, again with astounding views of the harbour as well as a minibar, Nespresso machine, a dining room table and another giant flatscreen TV.
It will cost you nearly $2,000 a night to sleep in this high-altitude luxury suite and sadly, the regular rooms are not that much cheaper. We found rates for mid-January at around $642 a night for a Deluxe Harbor Room. A junior suite with club floor access was going for about $960 a night.
But fortunately, you don't have to spend the night to enjoy the incredible views here. Just pop into one of the hotel's six restaurants and bars which start on the 102nd floor. We recommend Ozone, the glam bar and nightclub on the very top floor, where because of the dizzying height you're at, you won't need to drink as much to feel a little loose.
