Billionaires swarming to post-Irma St. Barts in ever-greater numbers

The billionaires have descended on St. Barts.

We hear Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich will be holding his annual New Year’s Eve blowout aboard his $500 million yacht, Eclipse, equipped with numerous hot tubs, swimming pools and helipads. In years past, Abramovich held the bash at his mansion, drawing guests and performers including Prince, Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, Karlie Kloss and Calvin Klein.

David Geffen’s yacht Rising Sun, Barry Diller’s Eos and Steve Wynn’s Aquarius have also been spotted around the Caribbean island, according to Forbes. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and girlfriend Lauren Sanchez were there last week, and other sightings have included Kris Jenner and boyfriend Corey Gamble, Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton and Sean Penn.

Page Six reported earlier this month that the island has bounced back from 2017’s Hurricane Irma as a destination for the jet set. Luxury hotel Eden Rock reopened just prior to Thanksgiving, and Ronald Perelman, Lorne Michaels, Don Lemon and Jon and Lizzie Tisch and others have been seen around the area’s hot spots.
