The bathrooms at Cypress Inn in Carmel are all outfitted in an elegant Moorish-Moroccan style, but they do vary depending on what type of room you’re staying in and whether you’re in the new or old wing of the hotel. The bathrooms in a courtyard room in the new wing are long and narrow with walls and floors in creamy travertine. Glass sliding doors conceal a jetted tub and shower. Wall dispensers hold an unnamed but deliciously floral shower gel, shampoo and conditioner by Gilchrist & Soames. Two bath mats — a rubber one to prevent slipping in the shower and a channeled terry cloth version to soak up water once you step out — hang over the railing on the shower door. A large mirror framed with a burgundy decorative tile is flanked by a pair of Moroccan lights with tapered tops. On one side of the counter, you’ll find Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities including a shaving kit and lemon facial soap, on the other side is a square tissue dispenser with a woven cover, a pair of drinking glasses and a large bottle of Vivreau spring water. One of the drawers under the sink holds a hair dryer, and under cabinet lighting makes it easy to move around in the dark. A pocket door at the far end of the bath conceals the water closet and racks holding fluffy white bath towels.
