Celebrity holiday hotspots

Nothing makes you feel like a star like when you get the A-list treatment on holiday. But if you are an A-lister all the time, where do you go to chill out? Read on to discover the favourite holiday spots of the stars…


With vending machines that distribute gold bars, the highest skyscrapers in the world and more sumptuous shopping malls than you can shake a stick at, it’s no surprise that this jewel of the east is a favourite with lots of celebrities.

After filming an X Factor episode at Atlantis: The Palm a couple of years ago, Dannii Minogue fell in love with the place and goes back regularly to relax in one of their opulent suites. Kim Kardashian also loves the 5 star resort, and likes to chill out there with her mum.

The seven star Burj Al Arab hotel is, of course, popular with the stars. This iconic hotel, shaped like a sail and jutting out into the coast, has a whole host of celebrities who are regular guests, such as Nicole Scherzinger, Claudia Schiffer and Tiger Woods.


With gorgeous beaches and glorious sunshine, celebrities love to flock to Miami to get away from it all.

The booming film industry (Marley and Me, Oceans Twelve and Jack and Jill, to name a few of the flicks that were filmed here) means many actors come for the work but find themselves staying after they discover what the ‘Sunshine State’ has to offer. South Beach in particular is a firm favourite with celebrities, with more famous people than you can fit on a red carpet lazing by the shore.

If you want to indulge in a little people-watching, then take a drive though the exclusive neighbourhood of Star Island, where you’ll find properties owned by the likes of Gloria Estefan and Rosie O’Donnell. Or if you want to party with the ‘It’ crowd, head to Mansion Nightclub on Washington Avenue in Miami, where you’re likely to find Paris Hilton or Beyonce sipping on a glamorous cocktail.


If you fancy some star-spotting slightly closer to home, then head to the gorgeous Algarve in Portugal. With luxury resorts, Michelin-starred restaurants and secluded beaches that offer that priceless privacy, it’s no surprise that this strip of sunshine is so popular with the rich and powerful.

Our very own Prime Minister David Cameron took his family holiday in the Algarve last year, but he was just following the lead of many other famous faces like Cliff Richard and Bonnie Tyler. Want to find out why they love this spot so much? Just take a look at our selection of Algarve holidays on Holiday Hypermarket!
