The world's most spectacular hotel jacuzzis, hot tubs, whirlpools and onsen

We love hotel rooms with jacuzzis! Who would have thought, right? Having travelled the world and spent many, many nights in hotels we have come to appreciate a nice soak at the end of a hard working day in our room with a private whirlpool. Soon that affinity for hot bubbles extended to our holidays as well.

Immersing yourself up to your neck in a hot tub induces feelings of comfort and easiness, and that kind of security allows your mind, and subsequently your body, to relax.

There are many hundreds of hotels worldwide with either indoor or outdoor hot tubs, private or public jacuzzis – we are just scratching the surface with our selection of the most spectacular ones.

Quite often the more spectacular whirlpool baths can be found in hotel suites with a jacuzzi. Size is usually not an issue for the private jacuzzis in your hotel room – most of the time they are intended for two people. Public ones in spa or pool areas can be much bigger of course.

The main difference however, and for us one of the most crucial criteria, is the view you get when sitting in your tub. If you can look down on a bustling city, have an endless ocean view towards the horizon, are surrounded by majestic mountains or lush jungle, or witness a spectacular sunset over an enchanting landscape – this is what makes your jacuzzi spectacular.

In mountain regions like the Alps or Rockies you often find traditional hot tubs instead of electrical jacuzzis. Luxurious chalets and lodges are your best bet here. Some spectacular options are the Awasi Patagonia, Flocons de Sel in the French Alps, or the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur.

If you are planning to vacation in areas with hot springs, of course Japanese ryokans with their onsen often with amazing tranquility and seclusion are in the best Japanese bathing traditions are hard to beat. Don't forget that there are also great options in the U.S. (e.g. Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado) or China (Gaoligong Mountains in Yunnan Province).

There is a plethora of options when it comes to endless ocean views. Many of the luxury hotel chains offer outdoor private jacuzzis in their villas. This gets you sea view right on the water like in the Maldives, or higher up on the hillside like on the Greek islands, the California coast, or in the Seychelles. Some of these locations make our selection of the 10 most romantic hotel jacuzzis.

And don't forget the thrill you get when soaking in your tub and looking down on places like New York, Rome, Florence or London – check out our 10 best Big City hotels with jacuzzi.

In large cities you can also find some truly stunning rooftop tubs and we've compiled a list of the 10 best hotels with rooftop jacuzzi with our favorites.
