Alongside the snaps, Jeff said he enjoyed a ‘crazy disco party’ with his family and told his followers the New Year is a time for ‘personal growth’.

He wrote: ‘We had so much fun last night celebrating with a crazy disco party with family, but the new year is also a great time to take stock and focus on personal growth, renewal, rebirth, and paying careful attention to each moment of your life. The good and the bad. All of it. Celebrate and grow.’

His girlfriend commented on the post and wrote: ‘I love you baby. For every reason and no reason.’

Bezos sported an orange patterned shirt along with a pair of cream chinos and sunglasses for the festivities.

The couple have been making the most of their vacation with hikes, yacht outings, and plenty of romantic canoodling.

The group chartered the luxury super-yacht Tender To for their trip. Measuring 88 feet 7 inches, the vessel from the iconic Italian brand Leopard Yachts was built in 2005 and can sleep up to seven people in a master suite, two double cabins, and two twin cabins.

The cost to charter it is $38,000 to $42,000 per week, plus expenses.

Bezos and Sanchez have vacationed together on St. Barts before. In 2019, they were also joined by Sanchez’s son Nikko.

The Amazon founder, who is estimated to be worth $210 billion, is the second richest man in the world after Tesla owner Elon Musk, who recently knocked him off the top spot with a fortune of $276.2 billion compared to Bezos’ $203.9 billion, according to Forbes.

Bezos first became a billionaire in 1998, the year after Amazon went public as an online bookseller, and has since increased his fortune by 12,425 per cent — now raking in more than $140,000 per minute.

Nearly 90 per cent of his wealth is tied up in his 10 per cent stake in Amazon — with each share currently worth $3,540.70 — with the rest of his money invested into other avenues such as Blue Origin and property.

He has made several highly-publicized donations since stepping down as CEO of Amazon in July, including to the Obama Foundation and Baby2Baby.

Just prior to Thanksgiving, he donated $100 million to the Obama Foundation, the largest ever to the charity. The Obama Foundation gift represents less than 0.1 percent Bezos’ estimated $210 billion fortune.

As part of the gift, Bezos asked that the plaza at the Obama Presidential Center be renamed John Lewis Plaza, after the late congressman and civil rights leader who spent decades fighting for voting rights.

Earlier in November, he pledged almost $100 million to groups working to end homelessness.

In September, standing alongside climate envoy John Kerry, Bezos pledged $1 billion from his coffers to fight climate change through the Bezos Earth Fund foundation.

Sanchez promoted her boyfriend’s environmental efforts on Instagram on December 30, writing: ‘Looking ahead to the new year, Jeff and I couldn’t be more excited and humbled to focus on our passion and commitment to climate change by helping to protect and restore nature, alongside our team @BezosEarthFund.’
