With all the fame, influence, and money they have, it is pretty easy for the top celebrities to choose a luxury destination and get there in a jiffy. At least this is the ideal picture; but these popular personalities have very tight schedules and plenty of engagements, which means that they only have a few days or weeks in a year to spend on leisure and relaxation. But when they do, it has to be perfect. Hence, it is very important for them to choose the ‘right’ vacation spot and make every second count. Not surprisingly, beach destinations are their top picks and they include:
Maldives. A small archipelago of islands and atolls south of the Indian subcontinent, the Maldives is a perennial entry to many annual lists of the world’s most luxurious island getaways. Its clear turquoise waters, warm weather, relative isolation, and ultra-deluxe resorts offer supreme privacy and exclusivity that celebrities are often deprived of. Prince William and Kate Middleton, David Beckham, Michael Phelps, and Madonna have all sought to experience the world-famous Maldivian hospitality.
St. Barths. The Caribbean has plenty magnificent tropical beaches and islands, but St.Barths, a tiny overseas collectivity of France in the West Indies, is probably the most popular among A-list celebrities. The peak of the travel season is usually on New Year’s Eve, when the rich and famous converge on the island in luxury yachts up to 170 meters in length. Usher, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, and the Kadashians love spending the holidays in this piece of winterless paradise.
Bermuda. This British Overseas Territory in northern Atlantic is not just a popular luxury destination for celebrities, but is also where some of them lived! As a financial center and a tax-neutral jurisdiction, Bermuda attracts plenty of investors—famous people included. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have owned a property in the island for 15 years while The Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey was actually born here! Bermuda is also this year’s host of the America’s Cup.
Rio de Janeiro. Nestled between picturesque mountains and gorgeous beaches, Brazil’s cultural hub is popular among regular tourists and celebrities alike. It is more than just a beach paradise; but also a melting pot of impressive architecture, sporting events, and street parties! In Rio, everything a VIP visitor needs seems so accessible. Hugh Jackman, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears have all been spotted vacationing in the city.
