THE ROYAL COUPLE: THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE
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.
