Splish, Splash... Take a Bath! Orfuro, Spoon XL & Soaker Tubs Are Sudsy Options at Fairmont Pacific Rim

Loos With High-in-the-Sky Views Have Guests Eye-to-Eye With Birds While Having a Bath at This Luxury Vancouver Hotel, While the Butler Asks "Do You Take Milk or Honey in Your Bath?"

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - The Fairmont Pacific Rim, a new luxury Vancouver hotel, has bathroom bragging rights with floor to ceiling Italian marble, LCD televisions imbedded into the mirrors, BOSE surround sound, adjustable lighting and plush Mascioni bath towels and bathrobes. Bathtubs at the hotel include square Japanese orfuros, spacious soakers, jetted tubs, and one that resembles an exotic ergonomic egg. Some are cocooned in spa bathrooms, while others have nothing between them except glass windows and never-ending views. And for shower aficionados, there are roomy double-headed spa showers (for two or more) that make for the ultimate romantic escape -- or a fun family affair.

Up to your neck in hot water takes a whole new meaning in an orfuro that is featured in some of the hotel's signature rooms. A Japanese way of life, the custom is to shower and relax in the orfuro. Marble steps lead up to a deep, jetted tub, built-in bench, and a ledge that comfortably holds a bottle of bubbly. Soothing and sensual, the tub has floor-to-ceiling windows of harbour views.

In the Presidential Suite on the top floor of this Vancouver hotel, sweeping vistas of the harbour and mountains can be enjoyed from the decadently deep tub. Too high for anything other than birds to get a glimpse, bathers can enjoy the privacy of a dream escape. The swanky suite is almost 3,000 square feet with a living room and private balcony, dining room, butler's pantry, guest bathroom, master bedroom, and master bathroom with a party-sized marble shower and sells from $5,000 per nite. 

For a rock star experience, guests can opt for the Chairman's Suite, a two-storey glass masterpiece with a private elevator that features an impressive 500-square-foot marble spa bathroom. The show stopper, a $16,000 "Spoon XL" designed by G. Benedini for Agape, is one of the hottest trends in haute bathrooms. Crafted of white Cristalplant®, full-length windows overlook a meditation pond and stepping stones that lead to a private terrace with a gazebo and fire pit.

Other guestrooms provide indulgent tubs for the bath connoisseur. Deep marble tubs, a contemporary interpretation of the classic claw foot, are popular among bath-aholics looking for a stress-busting soak. And for shower aficionados, there are roomy double-headed spa showers (for two or more) that make for the ultimate romantic escape -- or a fun family affair.

"Do you like your bath with milk or honey?" is just one of the questions the butler-trained concierges on Fairmont Gold ask, although most guests opt for eucalyptus oil. The scene is also set with candles and soft lighting and bubble-lovers receive a glass of sparking water and a bowl of strawberries to nibble on.
