Like a Willy Wonka dream come to life, China's new Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort arcs like a neon-clad doughnut over Taihu Lake, west of Shanghai in the Yangtze River Delta, Conde Nast Traveler reports. Beijing-born Ma Yansong, named one of the most creative architects in the world in 2009, designed two 27-story towers that curve together to form a near-circle. The 321-room hotel sits in the city of silk and the birthplace of China's tea culture, dating back more than 2,300 years. You'll see that heritage reflected in the textiles and in Yue, the hotel's Cantonese restaurant. Also on site? A spa, hot springs and dock for yachting on the stunning Taihu Lake. The hotel is currently open for business with a grand opening planned for October.
