One of my favourite things to do when I go on holiday is to enjoy a relaxing soak in a beautiful bath, ideally scented with fancy bath salts and surrounded by a ridiculous amount of bubbles. There is nothing more luxurious than having time to sit back, relax and soak away your stress.
I never used to be bathtub obsessed on holiday. However, renovating our only bathroom at home changed all that. Ripping out our tub to create more space for a larger shower seemed like a good idea at the time but I’ve been pining for those long, luxurious baths I used to enjoy at home ever since.
These days I’ve made it my mission to seek out accommodation with a lovely tub whenever possible. If you share my love of long, leisurely baths and are heading to South Australia, you will probably love the look of these tubs as much as I do. Turn both taps on full, add some sweet smelling bath goodies, light some candles, switch off your phone and enjoy!
