South Beach, Miami, Florida
The huge infinity pool -- or "water salon," as dubbed by designer Starck -- is both a trendy scene and a relaxing one. Classical music plays underwater, and an ornate silver table and chairs sit right in the pool for whoever snags them first. In front of the pool, there's a beautiful orchard of manicured ficus trees. A giant chessboard and huge mirror within the orchard, like the giant chair in the lobby, help create an Alice-in-Wonderland feel.
