Jewish Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of Chelsea Football Club, has booked all 111 rooms at the luxury hotel Beresheet in Mitzpe Ramon in southern Israel for the Passover holiday, the Daily Mail reported on Friday.

During the stay at the resort, Abramovich, his wife and their two children, along with their other guests, will hold a traditional Passover Seder in a specially-constructed tent in the desert outside of the hotel.

The group will reportedly arrive by private jet into Ben-Gurion Airport and travel to Mitzpe Ramon in a limousine.

The Beresheet hotel is located deep in the serene Negev desert and overlooks the Ramon Crater. The luxury getaway spot has private guest houses, pools and saunas.

Business Insider estimates the cost of renting the entire hotel for the duration of the holiday is around $450,000.
