Spend a night in any of these luxury retreats and you might just bump into your famous Hollywood star at the breakfast buffet, meet a rock star sipping a cocktail in the hotel bar, or even share an island with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. We picked some of the most stylish hideaways and hotels where celebrities love to stay. When it comes to interior design and style we share the same taste with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Alba: we love Borgo Egnazia and Singita!
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel chose this most idyllic location of Borgo Egnazia in the Italian village of Savelletri de Fasano in Puglia for their honeymoon. In the undiscovered corner of Italy the couple welcomed guests such as Jimmy Fallon and musician Timbaland. Borgo Egnazia is a castle-like and candle-lit dream setting for a wedding of A-list celebrities. From the resort, made of the typical white Lecce limestone, to the views of the Adriatic Sea, the surroundings, complete with olive trees and jasmine flowers, create something of a fairytale. Luxurious add-ons include a championship golf courses, two beach clubs and a fantastic spa that bases its treatments on ancient Puglian rituals.
It is no wonder Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, chose this private island for their honeymoon spot. A secluded beach, lush tropical beauty and stylish eco-friendly villas in an exotic location in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The villas blend seamlessly with their surroundings and guests share the retreat with tortoises and endangered species of birds. This is the perfect combination of beauty and privacy that draws in celebrities like David and Victoria Beckham, 10th wedding anniversary, or Salma Hayek, who was also on honeymoon here.
Liz Hurley and Arun Nayar celebrated their wedding in 2004 at the Devi Garh, an 18th century palace and fort close to Udaipur in Rajasthan. For 200 years it was the royal residence of the rulers of Delwara principality. Nowadays Devi Garh has been converted in a contemporary manner while conserving the ancient exterior into one of the most exclusive boutique hotels in the world. The palace offers the last word in opulence, 4 staff members for every suite, an Ambassador car and chauffeur at hand for each guest and Indian haute cuisine. Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan or Fardeen Khan, and Indian business tycoons like the Ambani brothers are among the guests of Devi Garh.
Everyone likes a bit of seclusion on honeymoon, but for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel the Singita Serengeti House with its only 350,000 acres were enough. The two-bedroom house sits proudly in the African landscape flanked by two guest villas with open fire in each. Lunches and charcuterie are regularly interrupted by sightings of elephant at the nearby watering hole, herds of impala, thousands of zebra and wildebeest migrating through the region.
Celebrities flock to Claridge’s for a taste of British tradition. The doormen are having a hard time to keep up with the names of the endless procession of stars popping up at this famous hotel in London. Just off New Bond Street in London Mayfair this traditional luxury hotel opened its doors in 1898. Claridge’s is a seven-storey terracotta-faced behemoth that has long been a favourite stop for statesmen, film stars, aristocrats and supermodels. Much of Claridge’s success results from an Art Deco renovation in the late 1920s. Recent guests include Kate Winslet, Poppy Delevingne, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker and Diane von Fürstenberg.
Italy’s Amalfi Coast is one of the most picturesque place on earth, and it’s here that you’ll find the legendary Le Sirenuse in the village of Positano. The resort offers spectacular views from all of the 59 rooms and suites over the bay of Positano, most have a private terrace or balcony. Le Sirenuse has been popular with the celebrities since the old days of Hollywood, when Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor holidayed at the Positano hotel. Today it is one of the hotels where celebrities love to stay in Italy and you can expect to bump into Sienna Miller, Gemma Arterton, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne or Reese Witherspoon who recently spent her second honeymoon there.
