Ever Stumbled Upon A Walk-In Closet In Your Bathroom?
No? Well, that's because you've never spent a night at Ritz-Carlton's
over the top opulent Reserve Phulay Bay in Krabi, Thailand. Comprised of 54 villas set along the Andaman Sea, every inch of the resort is pure luxury—from the feng shui-inspired welcome pavilion to the cathedral-like bathrooms.
The above shot shows a bathroom entrance in one of the Ocean Pavilion villas (these bad boys go for around $550/night during the summer season). The painted double doors alone are pretty impressive, and peeking inside, we love how the scalloped porcelain sinks are set in the middle of the room like a shrine. But the fancy faucets are only the beginning of what Phulay Bay's bathrooms have to offer...
For starters: a walk-in closet. Yep, we weren't joking about that part. The sizable closets are fitted out with two separate racks, a dozen drawers and two cabinets. And if you're like us and always look for goodies in the closet, Phulay Bay doesn't disappoint there either: Croc shoes, a beach bag and hat are all included in the stay.
Beyond the double sink washing area are a bathtub, toilet, and large shower, each housed in separate rooms. The square footage of the bathroom here actually trumps the rest of the bedroom, which isn't something we normally see in hotels but certainly wish we did. In terms of design, we're generally fans of less-is-more. But when it comes to bathrooms, we say the bigger the better!
