Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has booked all 111 rooms in the Beresheet Hotel at the Israeli desert resort of Mitzpe Ramon for Passover, a source close to the hotel told the "Daily Mail". He will reportedly fly to Ben Gurion Airport in his private jet on Sunday with his partner Darya Zhukova and their children Aaron and Leah, and travel by limousine to the hotel. "The weeklong visit will reportedly cost $450,000, and the highlight of the vacation will be a Passover Seder in a tent specially constructed in the desert. Beresheet Hotel has a view of the 500 meter-deep Ramon Crater, the world's largest crater created by erosion.
"The Daily Mail" adds, "Mr. Abramovich is going one better than the last time he spent Passover in Israel, in 2009, when he only he only rented an entire floor of 36 rooms in the Royal Beach Hotel in the Red Sea resort of Eilat.
"Mr. Abramovich is a frequent visitor to Israel. In the past year alone he has been to the country five times, including visits to technology incubators in Tel Aviv with a view to investing in high-tech startups and attending a fundraising event for an organization that carries out archeological excavations, which he supports financially.
''Ms. Zhukova is a billionaire in her own right. A fashion designer and businesswoman, she was born in Russia but raised in California by her Jewish mother after her parents divorced," the "Daily Mail" added.
