5 Luxurious Resorts for When Price Is No Object

BOSTON ( MainStreet) -- The world's finest vacation resorts offer it all -- exotic locations, first-class service, comfy accommodations and yummy meals.

"It's really a combination of everything -- the setting, the ambiance, the services and all of the extras," says Bruce Wallin of luxury lifestyles magazine The Robb Report, which recently compiled its first Robb Report 100 List of the poshest resorts around the globe.

Some two dozen Robb Report writers and editors teamed up with industry experts to pick the greatest vacation spots available to the price-is-no-object crowd.

"Really what we were looking for is the kind of place that would be the ultimate experience for Robb Report readers -- very exclusive properties, places like private islands that you might not find on other top 100 lists," Wallin says.

Of course, a vacation at one of the world's 100 best resorts doesn't come cheap.

Prices at properties that made the list range from $250 a night off-season at Canada's Four Seasons Whistler resort to as much as $51,000 a night (breakfast included) at Italy's Villa d'Este.

"The properties on our list succeed on all fronts -- and their prices reflect that," Wallin says. "Some of the properties in Mexico, South America and parts of Southeast Asia and India might [offer] lower prices, but it's very rare that you're going to find a [top 100] resort at a bargain price."

Here's a look, in order of price, at five of Wallin's personal favorites from among Robb Report 100 winners. Unless otherwise noted, prices are for two adults and include all meals, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages.
