SINGAPORE -- Singapore's environment minister awarded the country's first five-star rating to a public restroom on Tuesday, at the start of a nationwide drive to flush out dirty lavatories.

Environment Minister Lim Swee Say launched the "Happy Toilet" campaign, which will rate public restrooms using a five-star system similar to that used for hotels....

now the only question is how much will you have to pay for these 5 star toilets :)

So is this kind of like the bathroom Homer goes to when he gets hair for an episode? You know, the one with the waterfall and the chamber orchestra playing and the exotic birds flying around? Man I would love to crap in that place.

I was disappointed that they didn't have a picture of this 5 star toilet. Was imagining that it would be quite amazing!

I would expect that a toilet that got a 5 star rating would be a more than just a cut above the rest. It should include some services such as a steam clean after each use and someone to hand you a towel at the very least!
