Hotel launches Champagne bath

The Cadogan Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge has launched a Champagne bath menu, offering a Dom Pérignon 2002 bath for £25,000.

Available to hotel guests from Valentine’s Day and running for a year, the 122-bottle Champagne bath starts at £4,000 for a soak in Louis de Custine Brut 1998.

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.

Along with Dom Pérignon and Louis de Custine Brut, customers can choose from the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut 2002 bath for £6,000, the Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé 2004 bath for £8,000, or the Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label 2006 bath for £8,000.

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

“We’ve had surprising amounts of interest in the baths already,” the Cadogan’s sales and marketing director Lee Jones told db.

“Surprisingly, most of the interest has been at the top end. We’ve already had one guest pay the deposit for the Dom Pérignon bath,” Jones added.

The service, which can also be booked by external customers, was devised by recently-appointed general manager Will Oakley as the “ultimate indulgence” to mark the five star hotel’s 125th anniversary.

Shortly after opening in 1887, the hotel served as the setting for actress Lillie Langtry’s courting of the future King Edward VII. Oscar Wilde was also famously arrested in room 118 in 1895.

  1. I thought we were in times of austerity? Bathing in 2002 Dom Perignon at The Cadogan Hotel for £25,000 is absolutely ridiculous!
    What a waste of a great quality vintage Champagne!

    You’d be all sticky afterwards!! Also, six bottles of Champagne?? for two? that’s a lot of Champagne.

  3. Dom says:

    I think I must be missing the point of all this. Bathe in Champagne and then have a shower to clean yourself off as your bath is full of Champagne. I suppose the next step is a Champagne Cocktail bath with a bottle Louis XIII chucked in for good measure!

    Quite literally…money down the drain.
    (But I am still jealous!!)

    Good for yeast infections. I can hear them say

    “I am pissing the stars”

  6. We are all in it together. A good way to spend your enormous bonus.
    They will think they come clean after that.
    Obscene waste of money and good wines.

    On a positive note – more jobs created for any unemployed ‘Bath Butlers’ out there…

  8. TK says:

    Usually the Louis de Custine ends up in the sink, this destination is much less ignominious.

    Am I mistaken in reading this article? It seems you are in a bath but poured champagne to DRINK..not bathe in…
