10 Luxury Hotels Celebrities Have Stayed In This Summer
We’re well accustomed to seeing white sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters and #roomwithaview posts infiltrating our Instagram feed when summer comes around; it’s the time when the stars head off on holiday and we all get hit with a serious case of wanderlust.
If you’re looking for inspiration for your next luxury getaway, scroll through our handy guide to exactly where the A-list have been staying this summer.
The Beckhams - Indonesia
The entire Beckham brood reportedly descended on the resort of Nihi Sumba in the Indonesia Archipelago in August. The hotel is found on the relatively undiscovered island of Sumba, located south-east of neighbouring (and more visited) island Bali. The resort has 21 wood and thatch villas all complete with gardens amid “hundreds of acres” of land. Luxury holiday operator Scott Dunn offers a seven-night trip to Indonesia (five nights at Nihi Sumba) from £3,700 per person.
The chat show host extraordinaire and wife of Portia de Rossi headed out to the Insta-famous Giraffe Manor in May. Owned by the Safari Collection and set within 12 acres of private land on a forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi, the Manor has garnered attention due to the herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who visit morning and evening. Rates start from $525 (£412) per person sharing per night.
Immediately after attending his former co-star Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry in May, Patrick J Adams and his Pretty Little Liars actress wife Troian Bellisario hopped on a plane to the chic island of Mykonos. The couple stayed in celebrity-favourite Cavo Tagoo which is found on a cliffside overlooking the Agean sea (just look at that infinity pool complete with floating sunbeds). Rates in low season start at €600 (£530) and in high season go up to €1150 (£1000) per night.
The model and a group of friends chose the Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel on the Caribbean island of Grenada for their summer 2018 holiday – where she also celebrated her 28th birthday. The intimate, family-run resort is home to 30 suites and five estate homes. Rooms start at $430 (£330) per night in low-season.
Alessandra Ambrosio - Ibiza
The Victoria’s Secret model headed to the White Isle last month with friends. With so many luxurious hospitality options on the Spanish island, Alessandra opted for Me Ibiza, which has 205 rooms and is found on the eastern side of the party isle. Though the area of Santa Eulalia might be more secluded than other areas of Ibiza, ME provides its own entertainment with its Radio Rooftop bar hosting world famous DJs and Michelin-starred restaurant pop-ups. Prices start from €225 + VAT in low season and from €450 in high season.
Rebel Wilson - Iceland
While Iceland might not immediately spring to mind as a go-to summer destination, Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson apparently can’t recommend it enough. The actress devoted numerous paragraphs to the destination on Instagram, in particular The Retreat hotel, found in the country’s Blue Lagoon, which she said was “the best” (while also reiterating that it wasn’t a sponsored post). The £1,000-a-night hotel is the first luxury offering at the Blue Lagoon and features 62 suites which come with stunning views of the lava or direct access to the lagoon itself.
The model and granddaughter of the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Kent, spent several days in May in tranquil Lake Como. Along with her sister Marina, they stayed at design property Il Sereno which overlooks the far-stretching lake. The 30-suite hotel boasts a Michelin star restaurant, spa and, of course, plenty of viewpoints from which to fully absorb the beautiful lake. Suites start at €800 (£710).
