Hot Vacation Spots For The Stars

Magazine uncovers destinations where supermodels such as Kate Moss and fashionista Olivia Palermo head to for their lavish trips. With luxurious hotels, mouth-watering food and beautiful weather, these are ideal locations for beating the workday blues, or simply for an extravagant getaway. It is summer after all, meaning it’s time to head for that vacation you deserve, so turn to the stars for inspiration for your next retreat.

St. Barts – Olivia Palermo
St. Barts seems to be the place where a host of celebs gather to ring in the New Year. It is immensely popular over the festive season and at Maya's restaurant on New Year's Eve, their waterside tables are priceless thanks to super wealthy patrons. Celebrities have long gathered on the high-end, luxury Caribbean isle of St. Barts for its privacy, exclusivity and tight security. It also boasts lots of deluxe spas, yacht harbours, chic bars and gourmet brasseries. The porcelain white beaches and tropical foliage provided the picture-perfect backdrop for Olivia Palermo and hubby, Johannes Huebl when they got engaged on New Year’s Eve during their stay. Palermo regularly visits St. Barts to enjoy the glamour and high-flying attractions of this enchanted destination. 


Mexico – Lea Michele  
Celebrities who are keen to shy away from the paparazzi head to Mexico as it’s just a short plane ride away from Los Angeles. The year-round sunshine and indulgent gated communities provide the unspoiled playground for the wealthy and the famous. Actress and singer Lea Michele vacationed in Mexico recently with bff Jonathan Groff and just months ago with her beau Matthew Paetz frolicking on the pristine beaches. Hollywood celebs flock to Mexico in multitudes for its golf facilities, spas and even whale-watching excursions, and the likes of Lea Michele have come to see their annual trips to Mexico as relaxation therapy.


French Riviera – Kate Moss
Kate Moss and Jamie Hince honeymooned at the French Riviera, and that proves how much the supermodel loves vacationing there. The Cote D’Azur has long boasted iconic guests including Elizabeth Taylor and Brigitte Bardot. Moss loves heading to St. Tropez, a hot spot of the rich and famous and a fashion harbour with an unwritten dress code that falls someplace between nautical and Parisian elegance. Reasons why Moss adores visiting the French Riviera are for immaculate beaches, laid-back vibe and with an average 320 days of sunshine per year, limitless time to soak up the sun.


Barbados – Rihanna
Barbados is the place where rum and fun, multi-coloured umbrella drinks were created. The idyllic Caribbean island of Barbados is a favourite amongst A-listers with its white, coral-sand shorelines and luxurious hotels. Barbados-born Rihanna has been repeatedly spotted there over the festive period, joined by her famous friends like Cara Delevingne. The superstar frequently spends her holiday season looking stunning in her swimwear soaking up the sun. She even splashed out 22 million US dollars on a beachside home on the island. Although it is RiRi’s home island, she is constantly away on tour or for work most of the time, thus whenever she does return, it’s like a vacation destination. Barbados seems to have it all, with the beach resorts, terrific nightlife and hospitable inhabitants.

The Hamptons – Kardashians
The Long Island retreat outside of frenzied New York City has long been a summer pilgrimage for the affluent. The Kardashians aren’t exactly known for their thrifty spending habits and one of their favourite vacation destinations is the Hamptons. Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons is the name of their reality show but this isn’t a coincidence as the sisters frequently visit their exquisite 8900-square foot estate encompassing three acres, complete with a heated pool and private deck in their USD 14 million abode in the stylish New York holiday spot, Southampton. It’s the perfect escape for the stars to take a break from the hustle and bustle of LA life and Hollywood by taking the renowned drive to the Long Island retreat from NYC during the summer.
