10 Sunny Celebrity Honeymoon Spots to Inspire Your Travel Plans
From the beach in Bora Bora to safari in Seychelles.
It may be coat season in some parts of the world — but it's always warm and sunny on vacay. For holiday travel inspiration — whether the goal is romance, a solo escape, or a girls' getaway — look no further than these celebs' honeymoon snaps.
Make like a Manzo (Lauren to be exact) and book a Puerto Rican getaway. Caroline Manzo's daughter stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve on Dorado Beach for her post-wedding vacay in July. With oceanfront suites, tree house massages, and private dinners next to the hammocks... you might just forget to come home.
Kim Richards' daughter Brooke celebrated her second wedding to hubby, Thayer Wiederhorn, with a trip to Ibiza, Spain in May. Sightseeing around the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and the various small towns, visitors can explore castles, go on boat tours, and ride horseback in Ibiza's Horse Valley.
Head East for an African adventure on the island of Seychelles. Nicky Hilton and her husband, James Rothschild, spared no expense for their July honeymoon on the North Island. Hilton stripped off her $75,000 Valentino wedding gown in favor of a wide-brim hat and beach coverup while she relaxed in a hammock above the sand and took in some of the local wildlife on a safari. Though she didn't share where she shacked up, chances are the heiress stayed at the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa on Silhouette Island, which can only be reached by helicopter or boat. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin also honeymooned in Seychelles.
Jet off to the other side of the world to explore Fiji, just like Hills star and fashion designer Whitney Port, who made the trek after her November wedding to Tim Rosenman. Rooms at her Royal Davui Island Resort on the Davui Island of Fiji start at $845 per night. Villas come with their own private pools and king-size beds with sheets of Egyptian-cotton. Port was welcomed by a cornucopia of fresh fruit — not to mention that spotless beach view.
Gelato, scenic views, and free-flowing wine — talk about the perfect honeymoon spot! Girls star Allison Williams took in the Amalfi Coast on her trip to Positano, Italy in October. The idyllic location offers picturesque beaches, rigorous hiking trails, and spectacular sunsets. Try out an authentic resort like the Palazzo Marzoli, with its white walls and blue tile floors. Buon viaggio!
Ah, Paris, the city of light and love! What better place to celebrate one's marriage than in the capitol of romance? That's where supermodel Bar Refaeli enjoyed her "pre honeymoon honeymoon" with her then-fiance Adi Ezra in October. Take a private cruise down the Seine River like Leonardo DiCaprio's ex, and consider a stay at the five-star Pavillon De La Reine. The palatial hotel is located in Paris' oldest square, Place de Vosges. And with 24-hour room service, they'll let you eat cake any time you like.
Private cabana for two? That's what Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder found during their May honeymoon in Tulum, Mexico. The lovey-dovey pair smooched in the sand as they worked on their tans. From the looks of their sweet pics, the newlyweds stayed at the Amansala Eco-Chic Resort & Retreat. There, guests can take part in beachfront yoga classes, go snorkeling and diving, and launch out to explore the ancient ruins of Coba.
Head south of the border for a Costa Rican excursion, like Vanessa Williams experienced on her honeymoon in July. Staying at the Gaia Boutique Hotel on the Manuel Antonio Beach, Williams enjoyed the rooftop pool and met some of the local wildlife while out and about. It's no wonder, too, considering the hotel is located in a nature reserve of lowland forests that plays host to endangered orchids and many of the country's animals.
After their high-fashion New Orleans wedding, Solange Knowles and husband Alan Ferguson celebrated being man and wife in a boho-chic resort in Bahia, Brazil. The small fishing village is populated with vibrantly colored huts and lagoons. In addition to the Instagram-worthy views, there's lots of rich history in Bahia. Check out the Pelourinho neighborhood, which features some of the best 17th-century colonial architecture in South America.
Sip on juice from a real coconut and do handstands in your bikini on a Bora Bora trip. Ashley Tisdale literally flipped for joy during her September 2014 honeymoon at the Four Seasons there. The stunning over-water bungalows also hosted the Kardashians on one of their splashy annual family trips.
