And Now for Something that will NEVER make it onto my Bucket List… A Champagne Bath!

I had to post this… I like a lovely self-indulgent bubble bath as much as the next person, but a hotel in Knightsbridge (same area of London as Harrods for those not in the know) The Cadogan Hotel has launched a Champagne bath menu, offering a Dom Pérignon 2002 bath for £25,000!  Other more measly options include:

Louis de Custine Brut – £4,000
Perrier Jouet Grand Brut – £6,000
Perrier Jouet ‘Blason’ Rose – £8,000

…Oh and not to worry about it being too cold-oh no, the ‘clever’ chaps at Cadogan have come up with the ‘brilliant’ idea of warming it up

‘The bath can be heated to whatever temperature the customer requests.’

Mmmmmm… Warm Champagne-YUM!

Okay, I’m sure to some bright spark, this must have seemed like a good idea (actually his name is Will Oakley and he is the recently-appointed general manager)… And some fools somewhere must have paid for them,  (apparently they already have a deposit on the afore mentioned £25K bath) but REEEEALLY? Are you really serious?

The idea comes in time for Valentines day and is tipped by Cadogan Hotel as the “ultimate indulgence” to mark the five star hotel’s 125th anniversary.

While the bath is drawn, an optional “bath butler” will be on hand to pour the submerged guest a one of six complimentary bottles offered with the service, and serve chocolate-covered strawberries.  “We’ve had surprising amounts of interest in the baths already,” the Cadogan’s sales and marketing director Lee Jones told The Drinks Business

Well, any orders would come as a surprise to me, but I guess it shouldn’t The ‘Tim-nice-but-dim’ sketch wouldn’t have existed if there were no super-rich fools to parody. I imagine their entire client list must consist of people like this:

I’m sorry, but not only is the concept of a champagne bath completely ridiculous to me, because let’s face it, there are better things to do with 122 bottles of Champagne than tip them into a bath, warm up the champagne and climb in, but hello people-we’re in a credit crunch! I find it vulgar, and truly believe that only a fool would waste perfectly drinkable champers this way.

But that’s just my opinion… I’m interested to see how many of you do love the idea… 

So… What Item’s would NEVER make it onto YOUR bucket list…?

    I can’t help thinking that a Champagne Bath, on the budget I would be willing to throw at it, would be a shallow extravagance!

      Haha! I’m guessing you won’t be drowning in a Champagne bath any time soon then Doug?

    I just think, with all the poverty we have in the world, this is an utter waste! To add to that, can you imagine how sticky and gross you would feel after?

      Exactly! It’s insane and obscenely vulgar! …and yes, you’re right, you’d probably need another bath to wash away the champagne stickiness-what a waste!

    Not completely the same. But they have some resorts in Northeastern Pennsylvania, that have whirlpool baths shaped like champagne glasses. Why? I really have no good answer for that…

      A little random for sure, but as long as they’re not asking you to tip 133 bottles of the expensive bubbly stuff in, only to warm it up, and then empty it down the plug hole after bathing in it, then I could bring myself to try it…

    I’m the only one (first!) to vote Yes so far!!

    People, “waste” is a relative term. You haven’t seen “poverty” or met people who think eating chocolate cake, or buying a car for that matter, is “extravagance.”

    What’s more, there are people who don’t “drink” (for various extraterrestrial reasons beyond comprehension) and would agree that it’s perfectly acceptable to pour 100 bottles of champagne down the drain!

    Cadogan, I will haz Dom Perignon!

    I may do this but with Lambrini…..surely its the same??!! haha

      Haha! Cheaper certainly! Lambrini Girls know how to have fun, as they say! Personally, I imagine bottled fizzy water would be just as similar in terms of fizziness and less sticky. Let me know how you get along though! 😉
