50 Stunning Outdoor Shower Spaces That Take You To Urban Paradise
Remember the Seychelles, where cobbled paths led to a tree-lined shower? Or that hotel in the Philippines, where the presenter showed a bath, lotus pool and sink area covered in lush forest? Create a cleansing haven of your own, with these fifty outdoor shower spaces for inspiration. Take a rainforest shower over polished wood decking, watering flower beds simultaneously. Sip a glass of wine in an armchair before washing, watching the fire roar and warm the area beside you. Look out through a window to the place where you soak, with an outdoor ensuite. Get inspired while you wash with these fifty opulent, outdoor shower spaces.
Wedge your wooden waterfall between two slabs of rock. This shower in Kayumanis Private Villa and Spa in Ubud, Indonesia, surrounds your shower time with a stony-pebbled floor, wooden platform and array of luscious ferns and plants.
Get that spiritual feeling during your morning cleanse. Villa Belong Dua in Bali boasts ivy-covered walls, a stone plinth and platform and a mystical tree sprouting out of its bathroom. A stone statue of Buddha adds a final accent.
Experience a sanctuary all your own in Bali’s Villa Des Indes. Intricate, traditional patterns engrave the soap and shampoo holder; a bevy of draping ferns and Buddhist court dancer add a touch of the mystical.

For a shower that could be replicated at home, this Australian creation proves a winner. Make a clearing along your pebbled pathway to house a large urn, rhododendrons and a full, sand-blasting shower.
Twisted trees greet the eye, through this bathroom’s beautifully-detailed doors. A stone urn in the centre grounds this room of ivy-covered posts and walls, while a single stream of water bathes customers to the left.
Surrounded by open-slat windows, stone walls and a bath filled with petals, this outdoor shower is the definition of retreat. Wash two sets of hands in its standing bowls, alongside a marble statue, frangipani-filled vase and rolled hand towels. Take a bath looking up at the forest, or a shower amongst plants embedded in stone.
Bali’s Five Elements has built a truly tropical paradise. Lined with bamboo walls and an unusual oval mirror, varnished wooden floors lead to a shower headed by a thatched roof. Patches of stony path, cane furniture, trees and fernery polish off the look.
For an outdoor shower that screams luxury, Fiji’s Tadrai Island Resort has the answer. An open slatted roof lets in palm trees outside, while an unusual tree grows in the centre. Take a shower underneath its branches, while a stone spa awaits.
Sit beside the fire after your relaxing outdoor cleanse. Go to Areias Do Seixo Charm Hotel in Portugal to enjoy a bath that meets the shower, stone walls that meet indoor trees, and a traditional wooden chair before a glass of red wine.
Janni Delér designed another Chandra Villa shower. Based off circular geometric discs, this one-piece wooden fixture cleanses your body beside hanging ferns and a tree. A leaning towel rail adds functional interest.
