Asia's Skyscraper Hotels

1.) Burj Al Arab
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
1,053 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor..._slide_12.html


The elegantly curved building is meant to look like a billowing sail. Fitting, since it is located on its own (man-made) island. Visitors can arrive in style--either by helicopter or in the back of a Rolls-Royce limousine. A brigade of butlers services the 202 duplex suites, in which guests can choose from 13 different pillows and quilts. The skyscraper is also home to six restaurants and bars, including a skyview bar and Al Muntaha restaurant, which means "the highest," and offers views of the Arabian Gulf.

2.) Armani Hotel Dubai
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
1,053 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor..._slide_11.html


Fresh from its grand opening in January, the sleek Burj Khalifa is currently the tallest building in the world. While the hotel itself occupies levels five through eight as well as 38 and 39, the structure itself skyrockets up to 160 floors. Along with other tourists, hotel guests can also check out the At.mosphere restaurant and observation deck on the 122nd and 124th floors, respectively. Because it is fashion icon Georgio Armani's first hotel, the designer himself oversaw many aspects of the luxurious design.

3.) Rose Rayhaan
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
1,093 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor..._slide_13.html

This twisty 72-story building offers panoramic views of coastal, dusty Dubai--and its other distinctive skyscrapers, like the sail-shaped Burj Khalifa--and is the flagship property of an alcohol-free company. That means the hotel caters to families and business travelers who don't mind being teetotalers. Named after a mention in the Koran, it boasts 482 modern rooms and suites; each room is equipped with its own kitchenette. Though it just opened in December of 2009, the owners are plotting a renovation that would boost it to five-star status

4.) Park Hyatt Shanghai
Shanghai, China
1,358 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor..._slide_15.html

Park Hyatt Shanghai, which currently holds the world's-highest-hotel honors, occupies the 79th to 93rd floors of Shanghai's tallest building, the towering, bottle-opener-shaped World Financial Center. Luxuriously equipped with a tai chi courtyard and a spa, the hotel is located east of the city's Huangpu River, in the rapidly developing district of Pudong. It sports views of the European-style buildings across the river as well as the city's other neon-lit skyscrapers. Enjoy the scene out the window at the bar, which offers free sparkling wine for ladies every Wednesday.

5.) Grand Lisboa Macau
Macau, China
748 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor...s_slide_7.html

Located in the world's biggest gambling destination, this hotel boasts three Michelin-starred restaurants under the one roof. Known for its distinctive shape, which resembles a blossoming flower, the hotel showcases a 218-carat diamond in the lobby. It's called "The Star of Stanley Ho," after the casino mogul who is also the hotel's owner. When not playing table games or trying their luck at the slot machines, guests can stay in one of over 400 rooms; each of is lavishly equipped with a rainforest shower, Turkish steam bath and Jacuzzi. Colorfully lit up at night, the hotel has views of nearby casinos and the surrounding South China Sea.

6.) Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel
Nagoya, Japan
689 feet



http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/18/wor...s_slide_4.html


The port city of Nagoya is located in central Japan, partway between Tokyo and Osaka. The hotel itself, occupying one of the city's twin towers, has 774 Japanese- or Western-style rooms on offer, as well as a ballroom for large functions. Conveniently located above a subway station, the hotel offers stunning views from its rooms and a bar called the Sky Lounge Zenith. The panorama from some vantage points includes a picturesque restored Japanese castle. One quirk: The hotel doesn't admit guests with a visible tattoo into its pool or sauna area.

SM, Carlson to open Radisson Cebu hotel

EXPECTING a boom in the tourism business, the hotel arm of the Sy retail, banking and property conglomerate, will open its upscale hotel in Cebu on Sept. 27.

The 400-room hotel will be the Carlson group’s first Radisson Blu hotel in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Although the hotel’s completion was put on hold during the nineties due to the prevailing business climate then, we never lost our vision of one day opening its doors to welcome guests from all over the world,” Elizabeth T. Sy, president of SM Hotels and Conventions Corp., said in a statement on Thursday.

Ms. Sy said the local tourism industry faces bright prospects amid the resurgence of the economy.

“The opening of the first Radisson Blu hotel in Asia-Pacific is a major milestone. More hotels that are under development and in operation in the region will also become Radisson Blu hotels, as we deploy the brand globally,” Jean-Marc Busato, managing director for Carlson Hotels Asia Pacific said in a separate statement.

Carlson Hotels has 1,060 hotels in 77 countries.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu will have 10 function rooms, two ballrooms, a spa and fitness center, a lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant, and a swimming pool.

It is located at Cebu City’s North Reclamation Area, near the international port, and SM City Cebu.

Last year, Cebu attracted more than 1.6 million foreign and domestic travelers. -- Neil Jerome C. Morales
