THE ROYAL COU­PLE: THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAM­BRIDGE

Hong Kong Tatler Weddings - - ESSENTIALS -

Where did they go? Only the same spot cho­sen by Hol­ly­wood roy­alty Ge­orge and Amal Clooney for their hon­ey­moon—North Is­land in the Sey­chelles, of­ten re­garded as the most ex­clu­sive, celebrity-filled ho­tel on earth.

What should you do? Er, copy them. North Is­land is one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary, and most pri­vate, des­ti­na­tions on earth—a 2km­long is­land only ac­ces­si­ble by he­li­copter, with 12 pala­tial vil­las that lead down to the sea. Kate and Wills stayed in Villa 11, which is 6,243sqft of linen, mar­ble, pri­vate pools and end­less rose petals—and ex­clu­sively re­served for hon­ey­moon­ing cou­ples.

To give you an idea of just how high-end this ho­tel is, there are twice as many staff as guests but not a sin­gle menu. That’s be­cause you have your own pri­vate chef, who will whip up any­thing your taste buds are in the mood for, and the fruits of your imag­i­na­tion can be eaten on the is­land pi­azza, in the villa or on a pri­vate stretch of beach.

And if love means oc­ca­sion­ally need­ing some time alone to read or up­date In­sta­gram, then luck­ily scuba-div­ing, kayak­ing, moun­tain bikes, guided walks and half-day fish­ing trips are all in­cluded in the room rate. No won­der Kate and Wills stayed for two whole weeks back in 2011.
