Have you always wondered where the celebs jet off to when they’re in need of some much-needed R&R? Look no further. We’ve got the inside scoop on what the rich and famous are calling their favourite holiday destinations in 2017. Think everywhere from Barbados, to Mexico, Montenegro, and more…
Forget about work in Barbados
If you’re an Instagram addict (who isn’t?), then you may have scrolled upon that jaw-dropping photo of Rihanna celebrating Barbados’s annual Crop Over Festival. In fact, the Barbados-born singer and songwriter has been spotted more than once by eagle-eyed fans soaking up the sun in this tropical Caribbean island – and we don’t blame her, to be honest. Barbados is home to some of the most gorgeous beaches on the globe, like St Lawrence Bay. Here, bright-blue waters lap up sugar-white sands, so it’s the perfect place to chill out. Elsewhere, you can party all night in Christ Church, shop from nine ‘til five in St James, and you can go for a pamper session at a luxury spa in Sandy Lane.
Fall crazy in love with Montenegro
Small-but-mighty Montenegro is one of the top places to visit this year. It’s packed with panoramic mountain views, beautiful beaches, and a whole list of UNESCO-stamped sights that rival those in Croatia’s Dubrovnik. Plus, it’s got the celebrity seal of approval – both Beyoncé and Madonna have been sunning themselves here recently, so it must be trendy. We suggest you hop on a plane and visit before your friends do, though – this place won’t remain a secret for much longer…
Keep up with the Kardashians in Mexico
If creeping on Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat story is one of your favourite hobbies, you’ll know that the sun-kissed resort of Puerto Vallarta, nestled in Mexico’s Pacific Coast, is one of her favourite destinations for a luxury holiday. This Mexican gem is renowned for its sandy beaches, buzzing nightlife scene, and boasts some of the best cuisine in the cactus state – no wonder the reality TV star keeps coming back for more. Plus, did we mention we’re the only airline that fly direct to Puerto Vallarta? If that doesn’t tempt you, we don’t know what will.
Get the London look… in Capri
Thinking of booking a holiday to Sorrento? We’re not surprised. This gorgeous seaside town really does give you a taste of the good life. We’re talking some of the best pizzerias in Italy, beautiful bays and beaches, and you’ll be really close to culture-filled Naples, too. We recommend signing up for a day trip to chic Capri while you’re there. This celebrity hotspot is famous for its wealth of designer shops, classy cafés, and you may even spot supermodels, like Kate Moss, strutting around the streets looking effortlessly glam. We’re not kidding.
Bend it like Beckham in the Maldives
Fancy going somewhere different on your next family holiday? We think you should jet off to the Maldives – it’s got some of the best snorkelling sites in the world, a friendly atmosphere, and a never-ending list of watersports to choose from, so the kids (and you adults) will never be bored. Plus, did you know that the capital city, Male, is often referred to as the ‘Brazil of Asia’, with the majority of locals calling football their favourite sport? We’re guessing that’s why it’s one of David Beckham’s favourite long-haul destinations. Not to mention the spread of out-of-this-world beaches…
