If they’re good enough for royalty, they’re good enough for us.
The Kardashians in Dubai
Dubai is a magnet for many celebrities, but let’s take a moment to focus on Kim Kardashian. The socialite splurged on Atlantis, The Palm’s famously luxurious Royal Bridge Suite on her holiday to Dubai with a whopping $30,000 price tag. This extravagant 974 square metre apartment boasts a private library, games and media centre, massage room and a banquet table that seats up to sixteen people. That’s almost enough space for the entire Kardashian family. For those wishing to stay here for a more modest figure, this luxurious idyll boasts some of the world’s finest accommodation for a lot less – so long as you can make do without the Royal Bridge Suite’s private guarded elevator. Ooh la la.
Beyonce & Jay Z in the Dominican Republic
Welcome to Casa de Campo, the poster-child for Caribbean luxury. Returning superstar guests Beyonce & Jay-Z enjoy spending their holiday thrills at this laid-back Dom Rep getaway, and you can too. To live the life of a world-famous superstar on your next Dominican Republic holiday, make sure to book their allegedly favourite villa, Punta Minitas #34. This beauty features seven bedrooms, a private beach, 20-foot ceilings made of coral, and a private outdoor Jacuzzi. The resort itself is over 7000 acres, meaning there’s a plethora of other luxury accommodation to choose from if Beyonce & Jay Z beat you to the punch. Bonus: the entire Kardashian-Jenner family have also booked this villa.
The Beckhams in Maldives
The Beckhams’ graced One & Only Reethi Rah‘s Grand Sunset Residence for the 2017 new year. The superstar family joined the ranks of celebs including Bar Refaeli, Michael Phelps, Ronan Keating, Helen Flanagan, and Madonna who frequent the Maldives. And with private beaches, stunning Indian Ocean views, luxurious accommodation and private plunge pools, we can see why. When it comes to your Maldives holiday, you’re spoiled for choice. Every private-island Maldives resort offers a truly luxury experience in one of the world’s most scenic locations. No wonder the list of celebrities who have visited keeps growing. And to think you could be among them.
Rihanna in Barbados
We’ve got to start with Rihanna for this one, who grew up in this Caribbean paradise, but Barbados is the getaway-of-choice for other members of the rich and famous too. Familiar faces range from Simon Cowell to Cara Delevingne – it’s not called ‘the Platinum Coast’ for nothing. But of all the star-studded resorts to choose from, which one is for you? Cowell is no stranger to Sandy Lane resort, nor are Gwyneth Paltrow and the Beckhams (again). And even if you don’t sight any celebrities, you’ll definitely enjoy the sunshine, luxurious amenities and more on your holiday to Barbados.
Everybody in Hawaii
Hawaii is one of the best places to spot celebrities on our list. Due to being part of the USA, numerous American stars can be found in almost every corner of the island. That’s including former president Barack Obama, who grew up in Honolulu. One getaway especially popular with the silver-screen stars on their Hawaii holiday is The Kahala Hotel and Resort. This is evidenced by the resort’s long corridor of signed photographs from former guests including Bill Clinton, Snoop Dogg, Liz Taylor and more. For an alternative, check out Turtle Bay – an alleged favourite of Sean Penn.
The Royal Family in Seychelles
Romance blossoms in Seychelles, which was named as the most popular celebrity honeymoon destination in the world. These islands were honeymoon hotspots for countless celebrities, not least the royal family. Wills and Kate’s famous romantic getaway saw the royal couple relaxing on Seychelles’ exuberant North Island – also the honeymoon destination of George Clooney, Paul McCartney and more. If you venture to the equally luxurious Felicite, you’d share the same resort as Elizabeth Hurley who experienced the luxurious Six Senses Zil Pasyon on her Seychelles holiday. You know it’s good when it can only be reached by private helicopter.
