Our Top 10 outdoor bathrooms in South Africa, Kenya, Sumba Island, Bali, Maldives, and Seychelles

Outdoor bathrooms, where you can enjoy the fresh air, freedom, and ideally also have magnificent views, are on top of our list, apart from the private pools, when we travel. Here are the Top 10 most impressive outdoor bathrooms that we have come across on our travels so far:

1. Bambu Indah, Ubud, Bali

WOW factor: Open bathroom high up with a spectacular view  
The view from the bathtub in the Copper House at Bambu Indah is sheer madness. The bamboo tree houses are truly unique in their design. The open bathroom, almost directly on the slope, has a hand-hammered copper bathtub, an outdoor shower, and a stylish vanity.  (Our review >>)

What is special about the bathtub, you might ask? True to the sustainability concept, it has holes at the bottom that fills and empties it.

2. MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa, Mahé, Seychelles

WOW factor: Huge outdoor bathtub with great ocean views 
The bathroom at the MAIA with its huge outdoor bathtub, almost as big as a plunge pool,  the ancient faucets, the exquisite Hermès toiletries, and the outdoor glass shower is extraordinary! To have a bath with such a spectacular view is a once in a lifetime experience!  It is incredibly romantic in the evening, once the butler has run the bath and lighted all the candles.

3. Nihi Sumba, Sumba Island, Indonesia

WOW factor: Dreamlike ocean view in the open bathroom 
The bath and shower experience at the Villa Mendaka at Nihi Sumba is completely outdoors. From the outdoor shower, reminiscent of Africa, and the bathtub you have a fantastic ocean view, and at night you can watch the star-filled sky. A dream come true! (Our review >>)

4. HillsNek Safari Camp, South Africa

WOW factor: Wildly romantic outdoor shower in the wilderness 
The bathroom in the family-run safari lodge with only four tents in the Amakhala Game Reserve offers a safari experience like no other! It is unbelievably romantic to unwind in the tub with a view of the beautiful natural scenery, or to take a shower in the middle of the nowhere! (Our review >>)



5. Fivelements Puri Ahimsa, Ubud, Bali

WOW factor: flower bath in the lava stone bathtub with a river view 
The open bathroom in the award-winning healing and wellness retreat, Fivelements is a fabulous Balinese experience! In the huge lava stone bathtub, that even shines in different colors at night, you can relax while overlooking the Ayung River. If you would like to have a bath experience extraordinaire, you can even order a flower petal bath at the spa. The bath products are all made from ingredients grown by the local farmers. (Our review >>)

6. Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa & Spa, Bali

WOW factor: Tropical bath with outdoor shower made of stone 
The open bathroom at the Kayumanis Ubud with its rustic outdoor shower, the freestanding tub among the greenery and the great care products are delightful! Enjoying a rose petal bath in the evening is extremely romantic. (Our review >>)

7. Le Domaine de L´Orangeraie, Seychelles

WOW factor: Romantic outdoor bath in the tree house 
The ingenious open bathrooms of the Villa de Charme tree houses at Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie are impressively stunning with outdoor showers and stone basins. You have the most beautiful ocean ​​views from Villas 224 and 234. The lighting in the evening creates a soft, romantic atmosphere. (Our review >>)





8. Denis Private Island, Seychelles

WOW factor: Open outdoor bathroom with a small garden 
An absolute highlight on Denis Island is the open outdoor bathroom with open outdoor shower. In the bathtub, you can listen to the birds and gecko’s chirping and get away from it all. (Our review >>)




9. Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, Maldives

WOW factor: Elegant outdoor bathroom with tropical -flair 
The absolute highlight of Villa 28, next to the pool, is the open-air bathroom! The design is striking and extraordinary! Although it does not have a bathtub, it has an amazing plunge pool. (Our review >>)

10. Mandhari, Kenya

WOW factor: Open outdoor bathroom with a tree as focal point
The key feature of the Mandhari Lodge is the open-air bathroom with outdoor shower and vanity! Incorporating nature into the design, with the tree in the middle as a focal point, is so cool! It does not have a bathtub, but a stunning pool with breathtaking views into the vastness of the Kenyan landscape. (Our review >>)
