Whether you're usually a bath person or strictly showers, there's something about staying in a home with a beautiful tub that calls for a good long soak. We're not all lucky enough to have a spectacular tub in our own homes - but you can choose a homestay that comes equipped with one.
We've searched the globe and we think these 11 tubs are more than worthy of some foam-filled indulgence. Bubbles are optional:

Epic. That’s the word you’re looking for. This bathtub (and this entire home) is sleek, slick, and stylish. The tub is situated in the master suite with a television and floor-to-ceiling windows. Gaze out at the incredible views or watch a little Netflix mid-soak.
