Music plays underwater, and an ornate silver table and chairs sit right in the pool. In front of the Philippe Starck-designed pool is a beautiful orchard of crisply manicured trees. A giant chessboard and huge mirror within the orchard, like the giant chair in the lobby, helps to create a surreal, Alice in Wonderland atmosphere. Best Slide The Leap of Faith The Leap of Faith slide offers the daring and adventurous a 60 ft. almost-vertical drop from the top of the world-famous and iconic Mayan Temple, propelling riders at a tremendous speed through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon. While the Leap of Faith may be enough for the day, the Atlantis has 18 total slides for kids (and adults) of all ages. Best Rooftop It's new, it's popular, and it's the Gansevoort. The heated, outdoor rooftop pool is only a part of the impressive amount of space in which to party here. With the Plunge lounge that runs across the top floor of the hotel and out onto the pool deck along and the rooftop sundeck-cum-event space, you'll be staying here for a while. Best Beach Arenas del Mar is proof that staying at an eco-resort doesn't mean roughing it: Its 38 contemporary rooms are among the nicest in Manuel Antonio and its public spaces embody rustic luxury. The property's lush rainforest, two beautiful white-sand beaches on site -- a rarity in the area -- and diverse wildlife allow guests to truly connect with the nature that the resort's design so painstakingly preserved. Arenas del Mar has the best beach access in Manuel Antonio: It's under a five-minute golf cart ride to the sand, and the beaches are far superior to those at neighboring hotels. Best Luau One of the top powerhouse resorts on Kaanapali Beach, this Hyatt Regency has a luau like you've never seen. The sound of the conch, the beating of the drums, and the echoes of the Hawaiian chant signal the start of Hawaii's most exciting Luau. "Drums of the Pacific" Polynesian Spectacular (a Tihati Production) takes you on a journey through the islands of Polynesia, complete with a traditional imu ceremony and the exotic flavors of native Hawaiian cuisine. It includes an all-you-can-eat buffet, a dessert bar and an open bar. Best Cocktail Night of the Iguana: Herradura Silver Tequila, coconut purée, lime juice, Green Chartreuse, lime zest and fresh bay leaf. Tequila and summer go hand in hand (literally). But buyer beware: this drink is not weak. Tested by Oyster editors themselves, Night of the Iguana is taste-approved but warned for caution. Cheers! Best Pool Party Hard Rock is one of the most unapologetically hedonistic hotels in Las Vegas, which is a hard trophy to come by in this town. On Sunday, the Beach Club Pool hosts Rehab -- a pool party so raucous, they turned it into its own reality TV show. The best DJs come to spin their hottest beats for the biggest partiers in town. Best Golf Course Next to two golf courses, including the Prince, Golf Digest's No. 1 Hawaii course, Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas is the place to stay for golf lovers. Two well-regarded courses are adjacent to the Westin Princeville. See the best golf courses around the world >> One adjacent course, the Prince, has breathtaking views along Princeville's cliffs. The second, Makai, a 27-hole monster, was renovated in 2009. The Prince Golf Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. The golf carts equipped with GPS systems. See the best golf courses around the world >> Best Balcony One of the most environmentally focused hotels in Southern California, this fantastic, zen-like boutique comes close to reproducing the actual Santa Monica lifestyle. The balconies only encourage that lifestyle, with beautiful white lounge chairs, a set of table and chairs for socializing, and of course, plenty of space.
