Talk about swimming in cash…
Dubai’s got the world’s tallest building, the world’s biggest mall, and soon it’ll welcome the world’s most expensive bathtubs.
Well, 22 of them in fact.
The XXII Carat complex, which is currently in construction on Palm Jumeirah, will feature multi-million-dirham, crystal-carved tubs in its 22 elaborate villas when they open later this year.
The luxury villa company has brought in precious-rock fixtures from high-end Italian interiors label Baldi Home Jewels, which will take pride of place in the properties’ bathrooms.
Each of the villas will include a tub carved out of quartz from the Amazon jungle, according to the Daily Mail, with the baths going for around Dhs3.67 million a piece.

The raw crystals, weighing in at more than 10,000kg each, were shipped from Brazil to the Middle East, where they were then hand-carved into a deep egg shape.
Owners of XXII Carat villas will be in fine company with their master bathrooms too – Formula 1 heiress Tamara Ecclestone snapped up one of Baldi’s tubs recently for US$1 million.
“The residents of XXII Carat villas in Dubai will be among the first in the world to bathe in these remarkable tubs and enjoy the truly unique, magical and luxurious experience,” CEO Luca Baldi told the Daily Mail.

“They offer the ultimate escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life.”
The villas are on sale for between Dhs39.9 million and Dhs89 million, The Telegraph reports, and the high price tag hasn’t put off buyers, with 40 per cent of the properties already sold.
So what else will residents get?
Well, for a home that includes a gold-trimmed quartz bath, naturally the rest of the seven-bedroom villas are equally as opulent.
Every home has private access to the beach as well as a private pool, plus there’s a 24-hour concierge service, housekeeping, and valet parking.
The development, which is being built by The Forum Group next to the One & Only the Palm Hotel, will be made up of plots ranging from 16,000 to 25,000 square feet.
