Luxury Hotels in Bath
Bath is a fascinating city of rare beauty that has been attracting visitors since the dawn of time.
Stone Age hunters roamed here before the legendary Prince Bladud discovered the hot springs for which Bath has become famous. When the Romans arrived they constructed a grand collection of buildings around the springs, but with the collapse of their empire the magnificent buildings were abandoned and buried for almost a thousand years.
These springs, however, are only a part of the city’s extraordinary attraction. Bath is situated in a picturesque bowl of hills, and most of the buildings you see today date from the 18th century when a triumvirate of prominent citizens effectively created the stunning Georgian city that astonishes visitors today.
Beau Nash, professional gambler and bon viveur, turned the city into a fashionable playground for the beau monde. Ralph Allen provided plentiful supplies of the beautiful stone that lends the city its graceful air of uniformity. Finally, John Wood the Elder, and his son, created a new city on a grand scale. Bath now boasts more Grade I listed buildings than Central London and is the only English city to be designated a “World Heritage Site’.’
Not surprisingly this remarkable city never fails to astonish and entertain visitors from all over the world.
In keeping with the cities opulent past there are many Exclusive hotels to chose from. Browse the subsections to see what it has to offer.

Most exclusive hotel
The dictionary definition of exclusive is sole; limited to a selected few; incompatible; fashionable; unique. Most of the aforementioned attributes limit the traveller by one thing; money! If this was our barometer of exclusivity then the Burj Al Arab in Dubai at $6,800 (around £5000) a night would be a contender. The Royal Suite which is the most exclusive and expensive of all the hotel rooms is located on the 25th floor and exudes luxury from every facet with its gold staircase, marble and leopard print tufted carpets. The master bedroom also boasts a private cinema and a rotating four-poster canopy bed. Of course what makes many hotels exclusive is their inaccessibility or boutique characteristics that demands one to be ‘in the know’ to even be aware of them. The debate will rage as to what is the worlds most exclusive hotel but I have taken some of these defining characteristics and applied them to several hotels throughout the world.
