bathroom wiring


i am planning the wiring of a new full bathroom that includes a double vanity (6') and a shower with a light-fan above it. i know i need a dedicated 20 amp feed to a gfci outlet but i was curious if i could use 1 line for all lights, fan and receptacle? or is only the rec on this run and all else is off the lighting or rect circuits.
the layout is actually 3 rooms total, from the bedroom the door into the bathroom leads to the vanity room, the vanity room has a door on each side wall to the right is a 5'x5' closet and to the left is the toilet and tub.

One circuit can feed everything in the bathroom but can not leave the room.

The fan/light above the tub will need to be GFI protected. That isn't a NEC requirement, but it will be in the fan's manual.

That would probably be a question for the inspector that is inspecting your permits.
