Remember when we learned about Andaz Liverpool Street's plans to launch a World Food Marathon menu next month to coincide with the Olympics? Well, it turns out The Goring (aka Kate Middleton's hotel of choice) is preparing a 'global menu' of its own—except you'll find this menu in the bathroom, not the dining room.
The NY Daily News reports that a bath menu wil be available this summer, in order to let guests take "a trip around the world" through different bathroom scents.
But wait, it gets better. The toiletry company that The Goring has tapped for the bath menu program is none other than Molton Brown, one of our personal favorites. We'll take two of everything, please!
And the prize for the silliest hotel package this week goes to ... the Como Hotel in Melbourne for naming an otherwise perfectly normal hotel deal "Duckaway". Because you get a rubber duck.
At first glance it might not be at all clear why the Como would offer a "Duckaway", but there is in fact a reasonable kind of excuse behind it. The Como is especially proud of their "Bath Time Menu"--guests can choose all kinds of treats to enjoy at bath time with different kinds of bubble bath, some served with herbal tea or a glass of whisky!
So if you're craving a very good bath and a cute rubber duck, then the "Duckaway" deal goes for A$299 (US$210) and includes a night in a studio suite, gourmet breakfast for two, valet parking and, of course, a smiling Como rubber duck. Dare we say, duck in soon for this deal? Nah, it's too corny.
Taking an $11,000 bath in Evian water may sound like the bee's knees to some germ-o-phobes, but for most of us level-headed decadents, if we're gonna shell out serious cash, we want to at least get out of the bath with a nice bubbles buzz.
Luckily the St. Regis San Francisco offers a bath menu for a variety of rich addictions. For couples in love, the Rose petal package is right up your alley for throwing on a snorkel and diving mask momentarily and coming up with a diamond for proposing.
For those of us looking to just straight kick-it all luxe, there is a Chocolate Extravagance package and two separate Champagne packages.
But our favorite is the Krug Ultimate Bath which includes Caspian Osetra Caviar paired with a Magnum of Krug. A Magnum of Krug, our idea of perfect alone time.
