Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea recently vacationed at an exclusive resort that charges more than the average American makes in a year for a one-night’s stay in its top villa.

The Daily Mail first reported that Chelsea Clinton, her husband Marc Mezvinsky, and their daughter Charlotte were spotted at the Amanyara Resort on Providenciales Island in Turks and Caicos last week. Clinton, who is pregnant, appeared to be taking a break from campaigning for her mother.

Rooms at the resort–rated by some as one of the world’s most expensive–begin at $1,500 per night during the slow season. Amanyara’s most exclusive accommodations, its six-bedroom villa, cost $34,000 per night during the resort’s busy season.

One night in the top villa easily costs more than the average American makes in a year, as the latest measure of per capita income over 12 months stands at $28,555, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The six-bedroom villa offers guests direct beach access, a private swimming pool, a Pilates studio, and a personal bar, along with a "dedicated chef and housekeeper," according to the resort’s website. The resort itself boasts four spa pavilions, a reflecting pond, and an outdoor yoga studio, in addition to other perks. Overlooking the reefs of the Northwest Point Marine National Park, the resort bills itself as a "nature lover’s paradise."

It is unclear how much Chelsea Clinton and her family paid for their vacation at the resort or in which accommodations they stayed. While the family was photographed at the resort last Wednesday, Chelsea Clinton returned to the campaign trail in Iowa over the weekend, supporting her mother alongside former President Bill Clinton.
