Justin Bieber celebrated his 17th birthday in a $6,000-a-night suite with girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The 'Never Say Never' star - who turned 17 yesterday (01.03.11) - spared no expense as he and the Disney star spent the weekend at the St. Regis Monarch Beach hotel in Dana Point, California.

For the most part, Justin and Selena wanted to be left alone.

A source told website HollywoodLife.com: "For the most part, Justin and Selena wanted to be left alone.

"They didn't have bodyguards or parents with them, but there was an emergency contact list at the front desk with numbers for a bodyguard and some of their people's info if they needed it in any way."

The Presidential Suite where they stayed comes with a butler on call, two bedrooms, a dining room to seat 10, a private balcony overlooking the ocean and a hot tub.

Despite their lavish surroundings, the couple - who went public with their romance at the Oscars on Sunday night (27.02.11) - were seen enjoying a romantic dinner at the nearby Stonehill Tavern.

During the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, Justin and 18-year-old Selena shared a kiss, confirming their relationship.

Although the pair are yet to admit they are together, Disney star Selena recently confessed she is in love with the 'Baby' hitmaker.

She said: "I love him. He's been in my life a very long time. He's my friend.

"I think it's awesome people are interested - I don't understand why."
