We are all about a little bit of luxury here at The Good Spa Guide, but when we heard that there was a bathing experience out there with an incredible $50,000 price tag (that's just over £30,000 to us Brits), we simply HAD to give it a try. But, as we didn't quite have that much money in our desk drawer, we decided to read all about this incredible bath instead.
This extravagant bath by Me Bath, who create "ice cream" bath bombs, use 100% certified Hawaiian deep sea water, enriched with rare Sidr honey, hand-harvested Peruvian pink salt, rich illipe, murumuru and kokum butters, Israeli jojoba oil, and 24-carat gold. All this delivered to your home or spa in a handcrafted sterling silver masterpiece made by Israeli craftsmen.
Previously claiming the title of world's most expensive bath was the Evian bathing experience at Spa V at the Hotel Victor in Miami. Exclusively available to those staying in the $6,000 -a-night penthouse suite, this $5,000 treatment involved, very simply, an infinity tub full of Evian water. Around 1000 litres of the stuff. The experience is supposed to revitalize your skin and leave you soft, smooth and purified ... if not a little lighter in the wallet department.
To set the mood, why not grab an Ultimate Luxury Candle. A Champagne Noir Soy Candle with a 2.23 carat diamond and white-gold pendant necklace, this indulgent treat is yours for just under £3,100. And while you're at it, why not dry yourself off afterwards with D Porthault hand-printed Egyptian cotton towels -- prices start from £250 a pop.
