Cue the ‘OOO' Response: 8 Extravagant Celebrity Honeymoon Destinations
Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth: Mountain Pine Ridge, Belize And Positano, Italy
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth planned honeymoons so nice, they decided to say bon voyage twice. In 2011, the newlyweds spent their first days as man and wife at the family-friendly Blancaneaux Lodge and Turtle Inn in Mountain Pine Ridge, Belize, with Witherspoon’s children, Ava and Deacon. After some relaxing family time, the couple jetted off to Positano, Italy, for a romantic rendezvous of their own.
Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake: Tanzania, Africa
After indulging on food and wine (and getting married) in Puglia, Italy, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel headed to Tanzania to revel in their post-nuptial bliss. The couple opted to stay smack-dab in the middle of the Serengeti National Park at Singita Faru Faru Lodge for their 2012 honeymoon. Can you feel the love tonight?
Eniko Parrish & Kevin Hart: Saint Barthélemy (aka St. Barts)
Pint-size comedian Kevin Hart and his model wife, Eniko Parrish, decompressed after their lavish 2016 wedding on the très chic island of St. Barts. The honeymooners soaked up the French-Caribbean culture, glamorous nightlife and picturesque views like a perfectly chilled glass of rosé at the Eden Rock Hotel & Villas.
Fergie & Josh Duhamel: The Maldives
The Maldives has a special knack for luring honeymooners in need of relaxation, intimate thatched-roof bungalows and crystal-blue waters. Josh Duhamel and Fergie indulged in a private villa at the One&Only Reethi Rah for their honeymoon in 2009.
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend: Portofino, Italy
Following their 2013 vows in Lake Como, Italy, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend traveled south along the Italian coast to spend their honeymoon in the beautiful city of Portofino. For five days, the couple took in the picturesque views, relaxed in a private pool and debuted Teigen’s bridal swimwear collection. Work hard, play hard.
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban: Bora-bora
Urban and his blushing bride spent their honeymoon in the Royal Estate at the St. Regis Bora Bora, a 13,000-square-foot secluded villa that has its own private beach, butler and spa. Cowboy, take us away.
Kate Middleton & Prince William: The Seychelles
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their 2011 honeymoon in the Seychelles, where they enjoyed private butler service (well, duh), unlimited scuba diving lessons and daily spa treatments fit for a queen princess. Another mai tai, Jeeves!
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski: Lake Como, Italy
In 2010 Emily Blunt and John Krasinski celebrated their newlywed status by admiring Lake Como’s storybook views at the stately Villa d’Este. With its stone fountains, sweeping terraces and sprawling English gardens, it’s no wonder Chrissy Teigen and John Legend exchanged their vows in the gorgeous European destination.
