1. Crown Towers Hotel: Taipa Island Macau
2. Intercontinental Hotel: Hong Kong
3. Burj Al Arab: Dubai
4. Banyan Tree Hotel: Intendance Bay, Seychelles
5. Golden Nugget Las Vegas. Yes that is a 200,000 gallon shark tank in the middle.
6. Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, Palms Hotel Las Vegas. This suite takes up the entire 52nd floor. The pool cantilevers off the edge of the tower.
7. San Alfonso del Mar, Chile
