Luna, Costa Rica

The rooftop deck isn’t the only place you’ll enjoy panoramic ocean views. Luna’s ultra-contemporary, open concept style brings the outside in with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an airy open concept. Although the stainless steel appliances, state-of-the-art entertainment systems and minimalism say “modern marvel”, the tropical splendor of Costa Rica is never forgotten at Luna.

Blu Santa Monica, Santa Monica

What better way to reach the top than a private glass elevator? Situated directly on the beach, Blu’s avant-garde architecture and detailed modern finishes strike the perfect balance of sleek and cozy. Bright sunshine radiates through the entire condo, summoning you up to the rooftop area, where you’ll find a cushiony daybed, hot tub, dining area, and even a retractable canopy – just in case the Cali sunshine is burning a little too bright.

San Marco Modern, Miami

Step inside a contemporary work of art at this waterfront mansion. When you’re not taking in the ocean and city views from plush leather couches, enjoy the warmth of the sunshine state on the chaise lounges, edging the infinity pool and boat dock. This retreat is perfect for for those seeking a balance between privacy and urban attractions; enjoy a quiet dinner on the roof, then zip over to downtown – just minutes away – for a taste of Miami’s vibrant nightlife.
