( Daily Mail ) For the filthy rich looking to soak up a bit of luxury on holiday, a $1million bathtub might be just the thing.
The much-anticipated XXII Carat villa complex on the celebrity-peppered Palm Jumeriah in Dubai boasts some of the most expensive bathrooms in the world.
Set to open later in the year, each of the 22 properties comes complete with deep tubs carved out of precious rock crystals sourced from the Brazilian Amazon jungle.
The glimmering centrepieces were crafted by Florence-based company Baldi Home Jewels.
Asked what it’s like to bathe in one of the luxury tubs, Luca Baldi, CEO of Baldi, told MailOnline Travel that it ‘transcends reality’.
He continued: ‘They offer the ultimate escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
‘An experience of blissful connection with nature, it is a primitive sensation, which reaches the highest level of pleasure.
