The Scarlet Hotel have maximised the space and superbly put the bathroom behind the beds, so that you look out over the wall, over the bed, out the window and over the beach and sea 🙂
Even if you only pop in for a drink, do go by the Scarlet Hotel / Bar / Restuarant / Spa …. http://www.scarlethotel.co.uk/
I should this week be going to a talk by Surfers Against Sewage founder Chris Hines, who worked with the Scarlet creation team:
Along with Alistair Sawday, Chris Hines was a key part of a small team who brain stormed the sustainability and function of the Scarlet Hotel. The end result is wonderful!

Saw this picture (below) and thought there could be a wall behind the bed (that faces the view) that has a window with glass, or a cut out hole through from the bathroom behind the bed.
Also, another pic in the direction of the bathroom behind the bed. Taken from a house in Camps Bay, Cape Town:
I assume this bed has a bathroom behind the wall and that it has a view:

8th March 2012 – Update / Extra bit
Robert and I visited The Scarlet to have a look at the general architecture, features and to rough measure up the rooms. To see if some of the concepts will fit for the 2nd bedroom at Silver Spray.
Bedrooms 2 & 3 at Silver Spray are quite a bit narrower than the Scarlet – approx 3.2m v 3.8m (in the Scarlet), but I think will just about work.
Note position of the towel rail and mirror by the sink.
