If you're thinking Mitzpe Ramon (next to the Negev's stunning Ramon Crater) for Passover, forget the little town's Beresheet Hotel – it's been booked for the holiday, all 111 rooms of it, by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, the Mail Online reported Thursday.

The tab for the rooms, booked for the host's family and friends from Sunday through Thursday of next week, is an estimated $450,000. But as Abramovich was No. 5 on Forbes' 2012 list of the world's richest people, and seeing as how Bloomberg estimated his wealth this year at $14.2 billion, he can probably handle it.
Abramovich, owner of Britain's Chelsea soccer team, is slated to land at Ben-Gurion International Airport on Sunday with his partner, Darya Zhukova and their two children, and take a limo to the hotel. The highlight of the trip is to be a Monday night seder in a huge desert tent.
