Luxury holiday destinations of the rich and famous

If you are curious to know which five-star holiday destinations the rich and famous jet off to, we have uncovered their favourites to provide you with some luxury holiday ideas and inspiration.

Give a holiday in Galapagos a go like Prince Charles and Camilla

Luxury holiday destinations for couples do not come much better than to view these wild and uninhabited volcanic islands during a Galapagos cruise holiday and tour.

Luxury Galapagos tours can include:

  • Eating lunch in subtropical gardens
  • Observing unique animal and plant species such as giant tortoises, iguanas, penguins, frigate birds, waved albatross, blue-footed boobies and a wealth of rare flora.

Galapagos holiday costs will be dependent on which mode of transport you use to travel around the islands. It will also depend on what time of year you go, as well as which Galapagos package holiday you book. There are many to choose from – such as a Galapagos diving holiday for the adventurer in you.

A luxury Indian Ocean holiday for the Beckham’s

The Maldives is one of the best luxury destinations a footballer can take his family to. When guests are not lounging on immaculate white sand, next to crystal clear blue water, they are being pampered in style, cocktail in hand, at a luxurious authentic Asian spa. There is also the National Geographic dive centre where celebrities can learn to dive and become PADI certificated on holiday.

Top all-inclusive holidays to the Maldives in 2019 included staying in the following resorts:

  • The One & Only Reethi Rah resort
  • Kuramathi resort in the Maldives
  • The Six Senses Laamu
  • The Lux South Ari Atoll

The best luxury beach vacation for Michael Douglas

The best vacation an acclaimed producer and actor of 55 films can enjoy is in their own luxury estate in Mallorca, Spain. In fact, this year Douglas celebrated 30 years holidaying on the island, in his S’Estaca estate, Valldemossa, which he bought in 1989.

If you would like to spend some time soaking up the sun in a luxurious villa, the best villas in Mallorca can be found in:

  • Palma de Mallorca
  • Alcudia
  • El Arenal
  • Playa de Palma

George Clooney’s Lake Como Villa

In north Italy, Lake Como sits gracefully surrounded by vivid scenery, against the foothills of the Alps. In 2002, Clooney loved the location so much that he purchased his own villa, to own a little slice of Lake Como to enjoy whenever he wished.

Stay in a Lake Como resort as a base to enjoy sailing around the waters. You can also jump on a bus, for excursions to:

  • Milan
  • Bellagio
  • Lugano
  • St Moritz

Places to stay in Lake Como include:

  • Allegro Terminus Hotel
  • Palace Hotel
  • Filarial Hotel
  • Grand Imperial Hotel
  • Hotel Florence

It’s a trip to Saint Tropez, South-eastern France for Bono

Holidays in St Tropez along the French Riviera, have been enjoyed by the U2 frontman since he bought a beautiful sea-front coral mansion, with a private beach. He is now regularly seen by the locals in this serene fishing village.

A St Tropez vacation can be started from flying into Nice. While there, St Tropez travel can include drifting around on a yacht in the sun or making it on foot to the historic Place aux Herbes. Here, you can sample local fruits, vegetables and fresh fish from the market stalls.

St Tropez holidays are not cheap during the heat of the summer but flights and accommodation are more affordable outside of peak season. Try going in May for the annual Bravade festival for dancing, singing and plenty of eating and drinking.

Enjoy the heat of Havana like Mick Jagger

The Rolling Stones played on this Caribbean island in 2016. To ensure the gig went off with a blast, Jagger visited the island beforehand. He famously stopped at a private club called the Shargi La bar & restaurant and posed for pictures with staff.

Since the concert, Cuba has emerged as a popular tourist destination, with a selection of some of the best Caribbean vacation resorts.

If you want more than a poolside luxury holiday Cuba has the best of both worlds. Try an excursion like the Varadero to Havana tour. Usually, travellers spend two nights in an all-inclusive resort in Havana, Cuba and a week in Varadero. Havana is around 130km’s away from Varadero, so can be visited by bus.

The difference between Havana and Varadero is that Varadero is a beach lover’s dream, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. On the other hand, Havana is draped in vivid colours, architecture and cultural style.
