There’s no denying it’s been a whirlwind few days for former Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Last week, the ex-leader of the Conservative Party, 58, was enjoying some quality time with wife Carrie, 34, and their two children Wilfred and Romy in the lavish Casa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic.

But following Liz Truss‘ resignation last Thursday, BoJo cut his family trip short and rushed back to Westminster with an Economy class ticket.

For the next two days, Boris was locked in crisis talks with his supporters before confirming last night that putting himself forward as leader again ‘would simply not be the right thing to do’.

According to Page Six, Carrie and Boris’ luxurious holiday destination has welcomed every A-List celebs from Beyonce and J’Lo to Justin Bieber and Taron Egerton – and even has its own airport so guests can jet in on private planes.

The lavish Casa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic reportedly costs £2,400-a-night for a four-bedroom villa

And Boris isn’t the first politician to grace Casa de Campo’s sandy shores either – as Bill Clinton is said to be a fan of the resort, which reportedly charges £2,400 for a four-bedroom villa. 

Boosting 7,000 acres of private land, the exclusive resort includes one of Golf magazine’s top 100 courses – and the publication claims Boris even indulged in a lesson during his stay.

What’s more, the hotel complex has also built a large port for its mega-rich clientele to dock their superyachts and a fake amphitheatre, which will have no doubt delighted Boris the Oxford University Classics graduate. 

As the hotel complex is so large, all guests are reportedly given a golf buggy on an arrival to transport them between all the different on-site amenities.

On top of this, guests can also pick between a clay pigeon shooting or horse-riding experience as part of the hotel’s all-inclusive package.  

Speaking to the Mirror, a fellow holidaymaker described the Casa de Campo as ‘most exclusive place’ in the whole of the Dominican Republic. 

They said: ‘It’s quite a big resort, you’ve got exclusive hotels and villas within there – they’re humongous these places.’

Describing Carrie and Boris as ‘fairly chilled out’, they added: ‘The place where he was is a very nice part of the Dominican Republic, so it would be hard not to be relaxed where he was.’
