How blissful would life would be if you could start every day here? It looks like it’s floating on a cloud, but this at-home getaway is in The XI condo tower on 11th Avenue. That means it’s nestled between Chelsea Piers and the High Line, in the hottest of neighborhoods. Live your best downtown life, then decompress in what is surely one of the best spa bathrooms in Manhattan.
Head a few floors up in the same building for this beauty of a bathroom overlooking the Hudson. The super-deep Kaldewei tub is almost like a sculpture! And when you step out, the chevron Arabescato Vagli Oro marble floors are radiant-heated for ultimate comfort. Imagine soaking here in the evenings before bed, gazing at the stars reflecting on the rippling water — heaven.
Speaking of a tub with a view, this one overlooks the city rather than the river. But it’s certainly no less impressive! The marble flooring here is Bianco Dolomiti — also heated, obviously — and the custom vanities are walnut. This NoMad building is just a few blocks from 212 Fifth Avenue, where Jeff Bezos recently dropped nearly $100M on four adjacent apartments. Hello, neighbor!

At $15M, this is our most expensive spa bathroom of the bunch. But hey, a Central Park South address doesn’t come cheap. And this Art Deco retreat doesn’t skimp on the glitz, either. It’s decked out in Calacatta and Nero Marquina marble, with a separate steam and rain shower. Did we mention that this building has its own private restaurant, run by a celebrity chef?
Perhaps you’d prefer something a little…quieter? This soothing, sunny East End Avenue bathroom is a bit less flashy, a bit more homey, but no less luxurious. The floors, walls, and tub surround are Arabescato Cervaiole marble, and the custom vanity is Italian. Behind the fluted-glass panels are a private water closet to one side, and a walk-in shower to the other.
If minimalist is more your speed, this spa bathroom replaces marble with more subtle travertine. (Don’t worry, it’s still Italian!) It’s all clean lines and glass walls, with a wide-open view overlooking the Flatiron district. This home is in the One Madison building, where Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen once resided, so you know it has luxury bonafides.

Do you feel like you’ve stepped onto a luxury yacht? Or perhaps into a discreet, old-money gentlemen’s club? You’re not far off. This handsome bath is in the Dakota, an architectural legend on Central Park West that’s as genteel (and famous) as it gets. The Calacatta marble and bleached mahogany–clad retreat is one of 4.5 baths in this truly palatial home.
Real bath aficionados will appreciate the design in this Gramercy Park new-construction condo. The wide, flat shelf around the entire perimeter of the tub accommodates soaps, candles, wine glasses, and anything else you might need to get your soak on. And the building is LEED Gold certified, so it’s not just luxe — it’s also eco-friendly.
Let’s talk about claw-foot tubs for a moment. They often exude a shabby-chic kind of vintage charm, sometimes even veering a bit cutesy. But sheathed in sophisticated black, with glinting silvery paws? Now that is just chic, no shabby. And this penthouse’s enormous private roof terrace overlooking Union Square is not too shabby, either!

We end our tour with an impressive bathroom in an even more impressive home: a single-family West Village townhouse. The chevron flooring, the custom cabinetry, the prewar moldings, that gleaming showstopper of a tub: just wow. This serene Bank Street stunner is certainly worthy of its title as one of the best spa bathrooms on the market right now.
