Celebrity-approved honeymoon destinations around the world

Celebrity-approved honeymoon destinations around the world

Ever wondered where the rich and famous jet off to when celebrating their new status as Mr and Mrs? Well, wonder no more…

With a little more disposable income than most, celebrities often go big to celebrate their recent nuptials. Instead of the big tourist destinations, however, they tend to set trends and visit smaller, more private spots.

Here are a few of the most dreamy destinations celebrities have been loving.

Cork, Ireland

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ended off their lavish wedding celebrations in Cork, Ireland. Situated in one of the most historic parts of Ireland, the Castlemartyr Resort is an 18th-century manor house that offers special honeymoon packages – including spa treatments and delicious complimentary treats on arrival to set the mood for a couple’s stay.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel enjoyed a stay in Tanzania after their super-secret exchange of vows in Italy. Following a private flight into Kilimanjaro International Airport, the couple lived it up in the lap of luxury at the Singita Faru Faru riverside lodge in the Serengeti. The lodge is said to be a combination of contemporary, organic styles and quirky practicality of a botanist’s camp.

St Barths, Caribbean

Lying 240 km east of Puerto Rico, the volcanic island in the Caribbean is frequented by celebrities on a regular basis. Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo honeymooned here in 2011, joining the likes of other celeb couples like Beyoncé and Jay Z who have visited the island for a little relaxation time before. The Hotel Guanahani & Spa is made up of 68 Creole-style cottages – a change from the towers of luxury suites and restaurants that often characterise exclusive resorts.

Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

The St Regis Punta Mita Resort was the choice of more than one celeb couple for their 2014 nuptials. Adam Brody and Leighton Meester revelled in the beauty of the romantic getaway, and Jessica Simpson and husband Eric Johnson spent time at the resort later in the year. A Couples’ Luxury Suite at the resort’s Rèmede Spa sees to all your R&R requirements.

The Parrot Cay is an award-winning luxury holiday resort on the island that’s seen its fair share of celebs… Barbara Streisand, Britney Spears, Bruce Willis, to name but a few.

While this breathtaking location charts on Kim Kardashian’s list of honeymoons (she and second husband Kris Humphries flew there after their flash 2011 wedding), Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth have also enjoyed a taste of this scenic spot on the Italian coastline. The Le Sirenuse Hotel offers unbeatable views of the 50 km stretch of beach with rooms 70 m above sea level.

Paradise Valley, Arizona, US

Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa is where Beyoncé and Jay Z spent their honeymoon in 2008. The resort offers sporting facilities for guests who want to unwind on the tennis court or book sessions with a personal trainer. Getaway packages for the resort include a meditation-focused retreat, a Ferrari Casita package (designed for those with a need for speed) and a Thrill Seekers package for the adventurous.
