Very nice. Love the teak in the shower.

What's missing from the bathroom is the second toilet. I'm confused by this. Two showers, two sinks, but only one toilet and no bidet? Also it would be really great to have those (I forget the name) jetted foot soaker tubs, hidden beneath the floor in front of the toilets. It would be great to expand the toilet stall so both could be side by side, yet private from the rest of the room. Perhaps a small table/vanity between them for storage of toilet paper and towels for the foot baths.

Ikihik Hiffmpequt: I've never seen a bathroom with 2 toilets. Generally a second half bath is what most people would want if that is needed. This would be a toilet with a small sink. A bidet can be added to a toilet as long as you can have an outlet in the right proximity, & there are also toilets with the bidet function built in. And I'm thinking a foot soaker in front of a toilet wouldn't work unless it could pop up to floor height.

While I was reviewing this article, I noticed that the example of a dressing table (called a make-up vanity in this article) showed lighting over the top of the mirror. Side lighting such as sconces works much better, avoiding shadows.

I also noticed that the example in the section about tubs was top mounted, & the discussion didn't mention the option to undermount a tub. Having a top mounted tub makes it difficult to sit on the edge & swing your legs in, which is a safer way to enter.

While it's desirable to have at least 36" for the interior dimensions of a shower, different cities apply different codes, & in some locations the minimum standard dimension is a 30" circle.

@lkhilk huffmpequat...I'm guessing that you live in Europe, South America or somewhere else outside the U.S. I'm also guessing that the designers here are, as bidets aren't incorporated into bathrooms unless a client specifically requests them. And having two toilets is just...weird. Couples do get ready for work, brush their teeth, etc. at the sink at the same time, but it's expected that they simply wait their turn to use the toilet (or use another bathroom) rather than do their business together.
