Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, Quinceañera – call it what you will, every culture has its own way of celebrating its younger generation’s coming of age. Most recently MTV glorified what has become an almost crass display of wealth and entitlement in its hugely popular show, My Super Sweet Sixteen, complete with spoiled children, ridiculously overpriced gifts, and a party that wouldn’t have looked out of place at a rock star or film star’s home. Happy birthday to you indeed.
Now one company is taking the excess of such celebrations to an even larger level (which we didn’t think was possible) by offering a “Billionaire’s Birthday Package” to ensure that young, wealthy children are indulged even more, with a massively over the top party for a cool $2 million. We’re glad to see that so many people are managing their money wisely these days.
If you have a son or daughter with an upcoming 16th birthday, and you have $2 million in spare change lying around the house, this might just be the option for you, courtesy of Grand Velas Resorts in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit, Mexico.
Get on board with this insanely overpriced package, and you and your precious darling will enjoy a three-night vacation in a presidential suite, including a daily breakfast for them and 10 of their nearest and dearest (and most likely, jealous) friends. Of course you’ll have to get to your resort first, which you’ll do in a private jet, taking you from anywhere in the USA, Mexico or Canada right to your luxurious presidential suite. Nothing says ‘happy birthday’ like free gifts too, which is why your teen will receive a hamper of edible gold popsicles and an Apple iWatch on arrival.
The pampering doesn’t stop there though – because with a “Gold Treatment” package from the resort’s spa, as well as a custom-made designer outfit and the option to borrow diamonds and other accessories through the resort’s “Rent Your Rock”programme, your teen will be made to feel like a king or queen on their special day. Definitely a far cry from the at-home birthday party and homemade chocolate cake that most of us are treated to.
When it’s finally party time, the beach is the place to be, with space for 300 guests and five-star entertainment in the form of a candy bar, fireworks display, dance floor and DJ, and an exclusive performance by a celebrity artist. What, no magician? And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the opportunity for your teen and their 10 friends to enjoy activities such as skydiving and flyboarding during their vacation, as well as indulge in a specially prepared welcome dinner complete with mocktails (and a real cocktail for you, which you’ll need when you see the price tag).
So if you think your teen deserves what we’re fairly sure is the most expensive party in the world, then Mexico is the place to be. Make sure to take along your $2 million to pay the bill, as well as a few extra million for your dear one’s birthday gift (because no opulent party would be complete without a wildly extravagant present as well). Something simple and tasteful like the Great Wall of China, or the Ritz Hotel in London perhaps?
