Tile Backer Board
Tile Backer Board
Hardibacker Backerboard is a unique, cement based, water resistant substrate for tiling that can be used on walls, floors and countertops. Particularly suitable for use around baths, showers and in kitchens, it will keep your tiles just where you want them. Stuck hard to the surface. Tried and tested in millions of homes worldwide. It's very easy to cut and install.
Hardibacker boards: A hassle-free option
Considering the costs and effort involved, when you choose to tile a surface, you only want to do it once. Which is why it's important to attach your tiles to a surface that won't cause problems, like plywood, gypsum and other cement boards can. So, to avoid having to do repairs or do the whole job again in a few years, make sure you use Hardibacker Backerboard behind your tiles.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (2)
ps would it be best to close off, like a box, at top & or side nearest door??
Based on the information you have given, Hardie backer will be a good choice. However it is a British Standards recommendation that all shower areas are also tanked, which will help prvent the moisture problem you are trying to avoid. The stud wall should be mad to line up with the existing tiles of the adjacent if they are already fixed. But all corners where the tiles meet must be filled with a silicone sealant.
For the gap between the bath and the wall, a shelf can be made, also using hardie backer and also tanked. Before tiling, a waterproof jointing tap can be used to seal the between the shelf and the wall. It would look best if an adjustment can be made so that finished height of the tiled shelf is fitted just below the bath rim, then sealed with silicone to the bath. Following this procedure will ensure you substrate remains well protected.
I am unsure of the door position and how it ties in with the remainder of the room, so will not be able to advise about the finish in that area at this stage. However if you are able to take a photo of the room as it is, to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will be more than happy to advise you further.
Walls And Floors
These boards can be fixed using a combination of cement based tile adhesive and screws depending on the substrate. No further adhesive required. If they are being installed onto a stud wall, they can just be screwed direct to the studs. Once the boards are installed, the fibre tape can be fixed over the joints and bedded into tile adhesive to prevent issues from potential movement:
