Honeymoon Resorts: Travel Like a Celebrity
Want to spend your first days of wedded bliss like the stars? You can. Check out this list of celebrity honeymoon resorts. From new five-star hotels in Lake Como, Italy to far-flung locations like Tahiti, celebs celebrated their marriages all over the globe.
CastaDiva Resort, Lake Como, Italy
Honeymoon Resort for John Krasinksi & Emily Blunt
The Office and The Devil Wears Prada stars spent their first night of wedded bliss in the $3,000-a-night honeymoon suite at Lake Como's newest five-star resort, CastaDiva, the former home of Bellini muse Guiditta Pasta. The musically-themed resort, opened last summer, offers a luxury spa (each of the VIP suites offers room for two!), fine dining, and a private boat dock for the likes of A-listers like George Clooney (whose home is across the lake). For fun, head via boat to the nearby town of Bellagio or hop the border to Lugano, Switzerland, which boasts some of the area's best outlet shopping.
Le Taha'a Island Resort, Tahiti
Honeymoon Resort for Carrie Underwood & Mike Fischer
Also home to the season finale of The Bachelorette, the singing sensation and her hockey player husband chose this luxurious Tahiti getaway for their honeymoon resort. Reside in private over-water bungalows, scuba dive, and search for pearls and this ultra-private resort. A member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group, the resort offers a freshwater pool and numerous excursions, including one to a nearby vanilla plantation. Sounds sweet!
Soneva Fushi; Four Seasons Maldives
Honeymoon Resort for Katy Perry &Russell Brand
We're told that much buzzed-about celebs Perry and Brand hotel hopped on their honeymoon, opting for as many as three or more different resorts in the Maldives after a spectacular wedding in India. But the two confirmed honeymoon resorts they chose - Soneva Fushi and Four Seasons Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru - both offer over-water bungalows, extreme privacy and hefty price tags. But it's said to be worth it to stay in there ... unless, of course, you're this unlucky couple. For true privacy, we'd opt for Soneva Fushi, which sits on its own private island.
Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Hawaii
Honeymoon Resort for Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green
Hawaii has long been a favorite honeymoon destination. Why not? Its beautiful beaches, laid-back vibe, and remote location make it the perfect escape. Transformers hottie Megan Fox and longtime love Brian Austin Green finally tied the knot this summer at the upscale Four Seasons, choosing to make it both their wedding and honeymoon resort. A special perk? Guests booking a suite (and flying out of Terminal 1, United or US Airways) will have access to a new lounge offering a wet bar, tv, drinks, snacks, reading materials, charging stations and gratis Wi-Fi. Suite guests also enjoy specially-designated staff. The bad news? Suites start at over $1,000 per night.
Viceroy Anguilla, Anguilla
Honeymoon Resort for Orlando Bloom & Miranda Kerr
Fresh from a full renovation that added two new restaurants, two pools, more rooms, better beach access and The Spa at Viceroy Anguilla, the honeymoon resort of choice for Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom was recently acquired by Starwood Capital (of W Hotels fame) but will remain under the same luxe level of service. Opt for poolside treatments, meditation or healthy cooking classes before getting cocktails at Bamboo Bar and Grill, overlooking the beach. If you can, stay in one of the 60 new oceanfront penthouses.
El Dorado Golf and Beach Club, Los Cabos, Mexico
Honeymoon Resort forHilary Duff & Mike Comrie
Cabo San Lucas has long been a honeymoon resort paradise for celebrities and West Coast jetsetters alike. Duff and Comrie spent their honeymoon at the plush El Dorado Golf and Beach Club, a private resort that has boasted numerous celebrity clientele. Enjoy swimming in the pristine Sea of Cortez, spend your days indulging in world-class sport fishing, golf, or spa treatments or simply lie in the warm Mexican sun. Cabo, unlike many other Mexican cities, has not been negatively impacted by violence from drug cartels or illnesses like swine flu. Its large amount of expat residents also makes it a very friendly area for American tourists.
Hotel Guanahani, St. Barths
Honeymoon Resort for Bethenny Frankel & Jason Hoppe
Luxury seekers often flock to the French island of St. Barths for their winter getaways, and Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel and new husband Jason Hoppe are no exception. The luxe Hotel Guanahani is no exception. An ideal honeymoon resort, the hotel is a member of Leading Small Hotels of the World and overlooks the Margiot Bay. The resort's signature brightly-colored cottages are reodlent with the scent of local bougainvellia. A 2010 renovation also ensures that the guestrooms are up to their $1,000+ per night price tag.
