Best Hotel Bathtubs for Traveling Couples

Cove Haven

Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts

Where can you find the best bathtubs? That's an important question to ask yourselves when deciding on a romantic getaway. Because when it comes to bathtubs, bigger is better.

The best bathtubs —those with room for two, and perhaps even a private view—allow for long, lingering soaks together. They're a perfect prelude to romance. While big showers can be great watery fun, their insistent spray encourages quickies. Big bathtubs, on the other hand, inspire a slow, languid buildup to passion.

For that reason, it's always a disappointment when visiting a reputedly romantic hotel, peeking into the bathroom, and finding a tub sized for an overgrown toddler. To ensure you won't meet that fate, discover photo evidence of some of the best bathtubs around.

For the best experience in a hotel bathtub, don't forget to pack the bubble bath. And if it's a jetted tub, use bubble bath sparingly.

The grand-daddy of tubs-for-two, Cove Haven Poconos Resorts is renowned for its heart-shaped bathtubs.

Duos with an even higher tolerance for kitsch can opt for a suite with a seven-foot-tall champagne glass whirlpool bath-for-two. Other units feature a private indoor pool with an adjacent hot tub.

Know how you can tell if a bathtub is designed to be best for two? Its faucet will be centrally positioned or outside the fixture, rather than at one end that threatens to poke one of the bathers.
