Is there any semantic difference between "Bad" and "Toilette"?

yes, there is: in a 'Bad' or 'Badezimmer' (in contrast to a 'Toilette') you'll normally find a shower and/or a bathtub.

Why is it just das Bad and not das Badezimmer? I would have assumed there was quite a difference.

In Swedish we have the same distinction: toalett och badrum :)
