There is a strong expectation that a boutique lodge will pamper guests and provide them with a touch of luxury. Not surprisingly, fittings are invariably specified with this in mind.

The Pukeko Landing resort on the shores of Lake Tarawera is a prime example. With a view that captures some of New Zealand's most beautiful natural scenery, the resort was designed to ensure this outlook was maximised even in the bathrooms of the individual suites.

Marketing manager Angela Tomaszeski says the company selected Kohler's Sok bath to enhance the intimacy that guests could enjoy with nature.

"Bathing in this scene enhances the tranquillity and sense of wellbeing that the environment evokes," she says.

The selection of the Sok bath mirrors Kohler's original design concept, which aimed to reincarnate the ritual of bathing.

Bathers are cocooned in the deep bath. A sleek plane of water at eye level overflows into a channel the sound of the falling water helps to relax the body and calm the mind. Air jets create effervescent bubbles that provide therapeutic benefits, further enhancing the sense of relaxation.
