Baths aren't the greenest use of water, and that's with standard sized bath tubs. So what about a 4-foot deep, 72-foot long tub that snags the Guinness World Record (UK) as the biggest bathtub? Yeah... it's definitely not the greenest use of water. The $118,000 tub comes complete with steam rooms, perfumed sauna boxes, LCD screens, Jacuzzi pool, high-tech shower panels along with a large water pool and a four feet deep tub...and in case you get too prune-y to get out, a telephone service.
The monstrous tub is currently on display in Mumbai, India. We're a little surprised it isn't in Dubai - perhaps it could be part of the tower currently under construction that has a planned 57 swimming pools...
