It seems that Dubai and luxury have become synonymous as a city villa boasts of having USD1 million bathtubs that are worth USD1 million. Each of the bathtubs has been carved out of a Brazilian rock in which one can bathe in luxury.
These bathtubs, each weighing more than 10,000kg, had to be transported from South America to the Middle East. The rocks were split in half before being sanded for hundreds of hours to create the luxurious tubs.
The creators of this sybaritic indulgence are XXII Carat Club Villas. There are 22 villas on the property, each with seven bedrooms and 24 hour-concierge service. These dream villas range from a whopping price of USD14.4 million to USD32 million.
Despite the staggering price, 30 percent of the villas have already been sold ahead of their anticipated late-2017 completion. They are located on the Palm Jumeriah, a private beachfront gated community.
Other selling points include private beach access and beautiful landscaped gardens. There are three types of villa – Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire – each come with their own features, but all have panoramic views of Dubai and the water, and come with a 25m pool.
