Kim Kardashian is set to tie the knot Saturday (in Montecito, according to the New York Post), but she spent some serious hang time in May with hubby-to-be Kris Humphries in French Polynesia. In fact, Sunday's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" (10 p.m. E!) kicks off a three-parter of family members visiting the islands.

For part of the trip, Kim & co. stayed at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa, which features hillside rooms as well as those dreamy thatched-roof bungalows suspended over the turquoise waters of a lagoon. Want to "keep up"? Check out this package starting at $2,699 per person, which includes airfare from L.A., a stay at the Hilton and more. Just don't expect Kim to be there; the show was filmed last spring.

The deal: The Vacation Like a Celebrity package from TravelScene includes round-trip airfare from Los Angeles to Tahiti on Air Tahiti Nui, one night at the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti on Tahiti, four nights at the Hilton resort on Bora-Bora, daily breakfast and inter-island flights. Prices are based on double occupancy.

When: The deal is good for travel through March 31, 2012, with some blackout dates. (Note the website says this deal ends earlier, but I called and found out it's good through March.)

Tested: I called TravelScene and found availability for the cheapest rate for the stay starting Nov. 10 and returning Nov. 15. Total with taxes and fees comes to $2,890 per person, pricey but a bit of savings for this luxury trip. Consider L.A.-Tahiti round-trip airfare alone can run from $1,200 to $2,000 and more per person, depending on when you go.
