A Workout for the Eyes, Too

Racking up treadmill miles will feel like less of a slog if you can gaze out over the Pacific Ocean or a rainforest while you're running. And if you’re lucky enough to stay at one of these hotels, you’ll be treated to inspiring vistas while working out.

The Ritz likes to boast that this swank hotel’s gym and pool are the highest in the world, soaring approximately 1,600 feet above Hong Kong.
