Inside the Kardashians’ ultra-expensive holidays – with $23k-a-night villas, private chefs & hotel soap made from gold

HOW does a Kardashian celebrate a milestone birthday? By renting out an entire private island – and telling the world about it, of course.

Superstar Kim caused a Twitter storm this week after sharing snaps of her luxury 40th birthday getaway to Tahiti, saying she was "humbled and blessed" to spend the time away with her family.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is believed to be staying on Marlon Brando's $20,000-a-night island after flying 30 guests out for the reported $1million trip.

Naturally, the glamorous photos of beachside parties and expensive outfits during a global pandemic opened her up to a wave of criticism, with followers branding it ‘’tone deaf’’ and ‘’crass’’.

However, it's far from the first extravagant holiday the star – believed to be worth around $900million – has enjoyed with her uber-rich family.

From $150,000-a-week Thailand getaways to fancy hotels where even the soap is made from real gold, here we take a look at the Kardashians' jet-setting adventures.

$23k-a-night Costa Rica villa

The Kardashian clan rented out a $23,000 a night villa in Costa Rica in 2017, in their first trip abroad since Kim was infamously robbed in Paris.

The eight-bed villa has everything an A-list star could dream of – from private executive chefs who cook up gourmet meals to a fully stocked wine room with vintage cigars.

The cake-topper comes in the form of a private garage kitted out with Range Rovers and SUVs – should the need for an afternoon drive arise.

It also includes two swimming pools, a spa and a private theatre as well as multiple bars and party rooms. 

The 180-degree views of the sea take you away to another world as monkeys play nearby in the trees.

Inside the villa, eight full suites offer up 15 beds, along with bathrooms featuring onyx and marble tubs and showers.

'Overwater bungalows' in Bora Bora

Kim famously lost her $75,000 earring during a 2011 trip to Bora Bora after being thrown into the water. 

They were staying in the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa’s overwater bungalows, which boast $5,000-a-night presidential villas.

The six accompanying restaurants and lounges all have mesmerising views, and the Hina Spa offers facial treatments, locally sourced products and an outdoor treatment deck overlooking the lagoon.

An oversized infinity pool is also available for guests to use – with captivating views at sunset.

Kendall Jenner later found Kim's prized earring, shown in dramatic scenes on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

It sparked one of the series' most famous lines, as Kourtney quipped: ‘’Kim, there are people dying."

Ice Ice Baby

For Kourtney's 37th birthday, the sisters stayed in a luxury hotel in Iceland, looking out on to stunning views of the surrounding harbour and mountains.

The holiday included a visit to the Blue Lagoon and a helicopter tour of glaciers. 

The group are thought to have stayed in the apartment suite – said to be kitted out with a walk-in shower, king-sized beds, bathtubs and underfloor heating. 

The prestigious 101 Hotel also has a basement spa, complete with a sauna, plunge pool and gym. 

Shangri-La luxury in Japan

The Kardashians spared no expense when they headed to Japan in 2018, staying at the Shangri-La Hotel. 

It's all about luxury at the Tokyo destination, which spans the top 11 floors of a 37-storey skyscraper.

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney enjoyed the award-winning CHI Spa and worked out at their high-end fitness club.

The hotel also has two restaurants offering afternoon tea and cocktails at the Lobby Lounge.

Shortly after touching down they immediately went to Gonpachi – the sushi restaurant used for the epic fight scene in Kill Bill. 

They also indulged in Japanese traditional culture whilst donning kimonos and posing for pictures with teacups.

£150k-a-week Thailand sanctuary

The family have also stayed at a mind-blowing hotel in Thailand in 2014, which reportedly costs $150,000 a week.

It offers a breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea with the Iniala Beach House providing all guests with private staff, including a driver, butler, chef, spa therapist, and housekeeper.

If that wasn’t enough to impress the Kardashians then the hotel also included an entitlement of three to six hours of spa treatments per day.

With private chefs hand cooking meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and providing them with picnic, barbeques and snacks, it’s a holiday fit for royalty.

One of the more amusing moments of the trip showed Kim getting nipped by an elephant while she tried to take a selfie with it. 

The family went ziplining and paddleboarding before ending their trip by visiting an orphanage.

They spent time with the children and donated toys, sports equipment board games when they visited the Phuket children’s home.

Gold soap at The Palm in Dubai

Kim and co stayed at their favourite Atlantis, The Palm hotel in Dubai in 2017 – in a suite that costs around $30,000 a night and comes with a bar of soap made with real gold. 

Dubai is known for its lavish offerings, with the family enjoying unbelievable panoramic views from their hotel, a private guarded entrance, elevator, butler, chef, private library, games and media centre, as well as a massage room.

Kais Lahiani, resort manager and head of VIP services at Atlantis, The Palm, told The National Kim requested the same butler each time she visited – and they went above and beyond to organise a camel ride on the beach during her stay.

The Palm is home to not only some of the world's most impressive and expensive hotels, but also millionaires' homes.

And the family certainly spared no expense when travelling to the Middle East. 

Birthdays and hen dos in Vegas

The family regularly celebrate special occasions in Las Vegas – including Kim's now infamous 29th birthday, and her first bachelorette party.

And the reality star has even stayed in The Venetian’s Chairman’s Suites, which at a hefty $25,000 a night includes multiple luxurious bedrooms, a personal butler, a private salon, massage room and karaoke booth. 

Of course no one can forget Kim's 29th in the party capital, which saw the whole family pile into TAO nightclub. However, it was all but ruined – in front of the KUWTK cameras of course – when Scott Disick had too much to drink.

The reality star and Kim's brother Rob returned to the suite and began smashing things up in a rampage – before Scott proceeded to ruin dinner by starting a row with a waiter.

The Kardashians have truly proved money is no object when it comes to epic holidays – and the footage is all there to prove it.
