Best Artistic Design
In a town known for its gorgeous architecture and thriving artistic community, los baños at the 37-room Casa de Sierra Nevada, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, fit right in. Each is uniquely designed, with antique Talavera tiles (many hand-painted), plus appreciated extras like separate tubs and walk-in showers, heated floors (it gets chilly in this mountain town, especially in the winter months) and Molton Brown amenities. The most stunning water closets are housed in Casa Limon, the 18th-century-style mansion on the grounds. Our favorite, in the colonial suite, contains a hammered-copper tub tucked into a nook with shutters that open for breezy evening baths.
