Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al-Saud has spent at least 2.5 million Turkish Liras ($710.568) during his one-week-long holiday in the Aegean resort of Bodrum.
The prince, 62, and his family arrived in Bodrum early on Aug. 14 for vacation along with around 300 items of luggage and 30 bicycles. Their private jumbo jet landed at the Milas-Bodrum Airport under tight security measures as the family got in six VIP cars and one bus waiting on the runway and were escorted to the city center by two police vehicles and security guards. Their belongings were transferred to the hotel where they stayed in the Cennet Bay by trucks.
Al-Saud stayed at the hotel with a nightly price of 40,000 euros and hired another villa for other family members. He spent a total of 400,000 euros only for accommodation purposes. He also rented out 20 lodges every day for the comfort of the family.
The prince spent his time in Bodrum swimming and playing water sports during the day and went out at nights.
His ultra-luxurious yacht “Kingdom 5KR” was also ready on the bay where he mostly spent the days.
He also rode a bicycle around the town and was escorted by 30 bodyguards, renting out the whole coast of the hotel.
Seven VIP vehicles had been rented for the prince as he paid 45,000 Euros for the rental fee of the vehicles.
The Saudi prince also reportedly left a 20,000-lira tip at Nusret Steakhouse, whose owner became a social media phenomenon known as “Salt Bae.” He dined with a group of 15 people there.
On another day, he dined at a fish restaurant by the marina and paid a total of 40,000 liras.
