Against my better judgement I indulged in a 5-star all-inclusive mega hotel in the Dominican Republic awhile back as I played bridesmaid to one of my favourite b-school friends turned client. And while I must admit that 5-star has its perks, the true winner for the trip was the mega showers in the spa that felt like Dunns River Waterfalls on my head and shoulders. I knew instantly that if I were to ever renovate my bathroom then I would have to find the perfect residential shower body to mirror this experience.

Of course the conservative in me is a bit conflicted. There is an ever pressing global need for water conservation and efficiency. Currently my home in Kingston, Jamaica is suffering from urban mis-management and the lack of public administration’s attention to properly adapt infra-structure to a rapidly increasing population. So this begs the question: can I indulge in the frivolous desire to wash my hair with something akin to a fireman’s hose???
And those rainfall showers, while very conservative, are admittedly for wimps. Who needs rainfall??? Give me waterfall dammit!!! After all, these tresses of mine need some serious power washing on a regular basis and these shower body beauties might just do the trick:
The Aqua Adagio by Jaclo
Jane Hamley Wells Waterfall Outdoor shower
Anyhow, it’s probably a good thing then that my own budget might limit my ability to recreate the force of Dunns River in my bathroom right now. So while I continue to accumulate wealth, I strongly encourage those fixtures companies I so admire, Kohler, Watermark Designs, Hansgrohe, Jaclo, Jane Hamley Wells, etc. to please come up with a way to replicate that waterfall force in a residential setting AND allow me to happily conserve the water. Why can’t we get the best of both worlds???
