Whether you are in New York City or Hong Kong, nothing can beat the views from your penthouse apartment – or the amenities that paying top dollar affords. From glass plunge pools to retractable walls, developers and designers love to splash out on their building’s crown jewel. So with that in mind, here is a roundup of some of the best penthouses on the market around the world via Buzzbuzzhome.

This Hong Kong penthouse isn’t advertising a price. But considering that this is Hong Kong we are talking about, you can be sure it isn’t cheap.

The Musician’s Penthouse in London’s Corinthia Hotel comes with 24-hour butler service, a personal shopper and access to an “extensive private wine collection.”

The three-level Elysium Penthouse in Vancouver’s Grace Tower features seven terraces and two private elevators that open up onto the home’s foyer. Plus it is a relative steal at only $7.9 million.

In New York City’s Park Laurel, $26 million gets you 5,000 square feet, five bedrooms and Central Park views.

Finally, the entire wall of this Beirut penthouse opens up to the outside like a widow. [Buzzbuzzhome] Christopher Cameron
