Kanye West is planning to whisk girlfriend Kim Kardashian off on a £30,000 luxury Caribbean holiday.

The 'Gold Digger' rapper has hired a private bungalow at the exclusive Soufriere resort in of St Lucia, which comes complete with a private masseur and chef and a five-man security team.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Kanye knows Kim is used to staying in luxury but wanted to top everything she's experienced.

''Money is no object, he wants the best of everything.

''He's planning some romantic evenings and is relying on his chef to knock out some amazing seafood dishes to get them in the mood.''

The couple recently went public with their relationship when they were spotted leaving the cinema together. But while Kim's sister Khloe will neither confirm or deny the romance, she does think the pair are ''cute'' and ''compatible''.

She said: ''I love Kanye. I don't know what happens with Kim. I love Kanye. I think they're cute together.

''I think Kim and Kanye have known each other for a long time. I think that they're good friends and they're compatible. I think a Friendship is where good relationships stem from.''
