American filmmaker Tyler Perry has joined the many celebrities who have escaped to Fiji for a vacation.

The director, screenwriter, actor and comedian was in the country for a three-day holiday at the Laucala Resort on Laucala Island.

On July 8 at 7.05am he tweeted: “Hello from Fiji!!!”

According to a source, he arrived on a private jet at Nadi International Airport on July 6 and flew out of the country on July 9.

The 48-year-old star has joined the many celebrities who have spent time on the property which includes Oprah Winfrey to name a few.

A night on the island has projected a cost ranging from US$7000 (FJ$14,660.10) to US$36,000 (FJ$75,394.80) per night

In 2011, Mr Perry was listed by Forbes as one of the highest paid filmmakers in entertainment, earning US$130 million (FJ$272.26m) between May 2010 and 2011.

He created and performs as the Madea character, a tough elderly black woman. Mr Perry’s films vary in style from orthodox filmmaking techniques to filmed productions of live stage plays.
