Have you drawn out your floor plan yet? If you could post a sketch, it would be very helpful. Please include window, if any, doorway, vanity location along with toilet space. We have to work around the pieces that aren't moving therefore, their locations are very important.

With a tub that small you would need to go deep. Something like a Chinese soaking tub. This however would be awful for a shower. So it is a guest bath just do a large shower it is what will be used more anyway. Very seldom do guests take baths.

There are standard tubs available in this needed dimension. We use this one a lot.
This one is 60" x 30". Check it out.
There are soakers available too, but those are a bit more difficult to locate, but they ARE available.
I just used a Mansfield jetted tub that fit these dimensions, we were closer to 34" verses the 30".

Here's the floorplan, there aren't any windows, but there is a skylight. Thanks for any input.

The 59" is to your current drywall? I believe that 60" tubs meant to go between walls, the 60" required is measured from stud to stud, not drywall to drywall. A drywall sheet is 0.5" thick, I think, so you would gain the needed inch to install a standard 32" x 60" tub. At least that is what I understand to be true!
