Can you afford to vacation like a Kardashian?
Kanye West's 40th birthday is today, and to celebrate, he and wife Kim Kardashian treated themselves to a lavish vacation in the Bahamas last weekend. Living the life of a celebrity couple isn't cheap, though.
Let's start with the transportation arrangements. According to E! News, the couple secured a fleet of four private planes to transport themselves and their posse from Los Angeles to Marsh Harbour in the Abaco Islands, at an estimated final cost of $264,000. Add in a charter boat to Baker's Bay — the hot spot where the group spent the bulk of their vacay — and you're looking at an extra $190.
Next, we have the accommodations. Kim, Kanye, and company spent four days at the Baker's Bay Golf and Ocean Club. It's a super exclusive place — if you aren't actually a member, you have to be invited to stay at the resort. (I think it's safe to say that Kim, Kanye, and their famous friends breezed right on in, though.) The group resided in a lavish, private villa, with each family getting their own floor of the house. While the exclusivity of the club makes it hard to estimate the true cost, E! News places the total at around $176,000, at $44,000 a night.
If you wanted to do more than just hang out in your fancy villa all day, you could take a page out of Kim and Kanye's book and rent a jet ski for the price of $120 a person an hour; throw in a case of Casamigos tequila for $350, and you're really set for a good time.
So what's the total price of partying like Kim and Kanye? You're looking at a bill that's around $440,000 — yes, nearly half a million.
If that's a bit out of your price range, you may just have to be content living vicariously through Kim's Instagram posts. Check out a few below.
