Fancy holidaying like royalty this summer, how about a journey to the Maldives? Kate and William have just returned from staying in the Cheval Blanc hotel on Randheli Island, Noonu Atoll which is part of the luxurious Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group.
Our own royal couple are not the only blue-blooded visitors to these beautiful faraway shores. Princess Ameerah Al Taweel of Saudi Arabia ventured to the islands with her then-husband Prince Al-Waheed in 2009.
A celebrity holiday retreat
This dream holiday destination is not exclusive to those of regal virtue. The Maldives has also been popular in recent years with Hollywood royalty, and glamorous celebrities from all areas of entertainment and sport.
Film stars who have chosen to spend time on the white sands of the islands include Kevin Spacey, Clive Owen, Rob Lowe and Tom Cruise.
Glamorous young couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have also jetted to the Maldives and stayed at the Viceroy Hotel and Resort located in the exclusive Shaviyana Atoll.
Blake is rumoured to have enjoyed 5-star spa treatments at the over-water spa villas. We can only imagine what it must be like to view the sea from the comfort of the massage bed… heaven!
Real Madrid football player Cristiano Ronaldo took his girlfriend, model Irina Shayk to the Maldives with his son Cristiano Ronaldo junior. They picked the Anatara Kihavah Villas in Baa atoll and it is easy to see why.
The high-profile couple enjoyed the a la carte menu at the Sea Underwater Dining room. There is surely not a more magnificent way of spending an evening.
Hip-Hop power couple, rapper and record producer Jay Z and singer and actress Beyoncé, took a sabbatical and cruised the islands on their private yacht.
The ultimate honeymoon destination
This is an exotic and romantic haven for honeymooners. Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas visited with her husband and film star, Josh Duhamel and were newly-wed guests at the One & Only Rheeti Rah. At this resort you can enjoy a celeb dining experience in a sumptuous private pavilion in one of their many restaurants.
A member of the British-Irish girl band The Saturdays, Rochelle Hume spent a relaxing honeymoon in the Maldives with her new husband Marvin in 2012 and again this January visited the Atmosphere Kanifushi in the secluded Lhaviyani Atoll of the Maldives.
The beautiful 5 *star all-inclusive resort is the kind of luxury that celebs love. At this unique resort you can enjoy a romantic candle- lit dinner on the beach in the middle of a sapphire blue lagoon as the sun goes down.
