Paparazzi not welcome: Celebrities’ favorite resorts
You know what high-end luxury entails – five-star hotels, gourmet restaurants, spa treatments and VIP service – but you might not know exactly where to find it. There’s one particular network of people who require luxury accommodations on every vacation and they certainly get it – the Hollywood elite. Looking to have a glamorous vacation fit for A-listers like Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman or Beyonce and Jay-Z? Then look out for these prime spots and be sure to ask for the premiere package – you know they did, too.
One and Only Palmilla
There’s a reason thatÂ thisÂ Cabo San Lucas resort is called One&Only. The tropical retreat in Mexico is the ultimate source of relaxation and a well-known hot spot among the celebrity circuit, as the cozy bungalows have had high-profileÂ guests like Courtney Cox, Sheryl Crow and Gerard Butler, all ofÂ whom visited for Jennifer Aniston’s 41st birthday. With each room boasting surprise treats like telescopes for star- and whale-watching, built-in Bose sound systems and plush daybeds outdoors, it’s no surprise that celebrities hide away here.Â
You can guarantee that you’ll get the privacy you want, too – the hotel ensures that even the most elite, photographed guests will be safe from paparazzi, so you won’t have to worry about anyone interrupting your stay.
St. Regis Bora Bora
A honeymoon for Hollywood’s finestÂ is sure to be an elaborate, lavish vacation, and that’s exactly what Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban planned in Tahiti. They were among the first to honeymoon at the ultra glamorous resort of St. Regis Bora Bora, which opened only six years ago. A personal chef prepared their meals, a whole private beach was entirely theirs and they had the choice of taking a dip in the crystal clear ocean orÂ their own private pool. While Kidman and Urban chose the Royal Estate, the Over Water Villas are worth consideration – these bungalows boast their own private pools built into the over water decks, looking out to Bora Bora. It doesn’t get much more luxurious than that.
Beyonce & Jay-Z are frequent globetrotters, and certainly know how to choose a vacation spot. Barbados’ Sandy Lane is a favorite among dozens of celebrities, including the power couple, who snuck away to a private villa at The Sands before Beyonce introduced the world to their daughter, Blue Ivy.
Situated in St. James, Barbados, the luxury compound consists of eight glamorous villas, ranging from 8,000 to 9,500 square feet – not including the private terraces and communal areas outdoors. For those looking to have an intimate stay with their loved one, they can still invite friends and share the space without ever even seeing them – it’s that big.
You might not find a more elegant property in Barbados, or a better golf course. The Sandy Lane Hotel boasts the Green Monkey championship golf course, which was designed by Tom FazioÂ and lures in professionals year-round – Tiger Woods is a frequent visitor, and even married his former wife, Elin Nordgren, at the luxurious resort.
