Love outdoor showers! The first time we stayed at the Four Seasons in Maui, our suite had an outdoor shower.. Every time thereafter, we requested the same suite, and hoped that if we ever built a vacation home, all showers would be outdoors. We did build a home in Zihuatanejo, Mexico and all showers are outdoors with the view of the ocean below, surrounded by areca palms and bougainvillea! Thank you for the inspiration, Four Seasons!
