Time for a little wanderlusting...

Where do you go on vacation if money is no object? Luxury-Hotels.com just released their list of the most expensive luxury hotels in the world, and the list of 30 resorts and hotels from around the world will have you dreaming of a life of leisure (and a bottomless bank account).

Luxury-Hotels.com came up with the rankings based on the rate for the standard double room (the minimum amount required to stay at the hotel) for the time period June through August 2011.
