Relationships, love and passion are some of the things that define us. Some of us can exercise the freedom of chasing new flings over and over again without any accountability or worry for the consequences. On the other hand, celebrities are not that fortunate. They live quite a sheltered live.
The thrill of being infatuated and in the midst of a potential new relationship has always made celebrities take unaccounted measures to go through with their fantasies. Some of them are more cautious than others. At the end, most of them are urged to keep their private matters away from the public eye.
Fortunately, they have the means and knowledge to do just that.
When in need of escape for whatever reason they have access to the most secluded places imaginable. To engage on a secret escapade makes the whole ordeal even more intense.
In addition, we are going to take a look at a couple of the most famous, or infamous, destinations that witnessed the rise and fall of famous relationships!
1. Old Drovers Inn
Often in cinematography, the line between life and art gets blurry and magical things happen. Richard Burton met Elizabeth Taylor on the shooting of Cleopatra. Instantly, they were consumed with each other. Their relationship has to be one of the most dramatic relationships of the 20th century. Taylor was still married to Eddie Fisher when these two decided to entertain the idea of an affair. One day, they decided to rent all the rooms at the Old Drovers Inn and indulge in the clandestine escapades. They were later married and divorced. Twice!
2. Casa Kimberly
Come 1964, Burton was hired to play the role of reverend doctor T. Lawrence Shannon in The Night of the Iguana. Two years earlier, Taylor accompanied Burton and the film crew for principle photography in Puerto Vallarta. Burton bought land across the street from his own Mexican casita. He built Casa Kimberly right at that spot and connected the abodes with a bridge. Casa Kimberly remains a hotel to this very day.
3. Beverly Hills Hotel
The LA based, Sunset Boulevard hotel was witness to many a low-profile randezvous, especially in the Golden Hollywood Era. Surrounded by 12 lush, tropical gardens, celebrities like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard would spend time here in each other’s arms. Love in LA!
4. Half Moon
The 400 acre resort hotel saw the light of day in 1954, when 17 American entrepreneurs were persuaded to build their own cottage colony seven miles down the shore of Montego Bay. The rest is history. Paul Newman, Debbie Reynolds and Joan Crawford all walked down the crescent-shaped beach that gave this resort its name. Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy are just one of the many couples that visited this place.
5. Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa
I believe that people who decide to celebrate their matrimony by honeymooning here will live to see a happy and successful marriage. This place oozes hedonism, health and prosperity!
6. Parrot Cay
Secluded deep down in the embrace of the Turks and Caicos, this is one of the most exclusive resort islands in the northern Caribbean. Consequently, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got married there.
7. Pacific Palms Resort
The Pacific Palms Resort is set against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Valley Mountains. “Brangelina” stayed here while shooting Mr. and Mrs. Smith!
8. Rosewood Mayakoba
The Rosewood Mayakoba resort is situated along the Caribbean coast of Rivera Maya. Kate Hudson and ex-husband Matt Bellamy have stayed there.
9. San Ysidro Ranch
The San Ysidro Ranch spreads between Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It has its very own museum of art, botanical gardens and a zoo. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin probably visited one of the sites at their visit there.
10. Las Ventanas al Paraiso
Translated as The Windows Of Paradise, Las Ventanas Al Paraiso resort is truly a heaven on Earth. With 350 sunny days, the resort estimates a third of their business to capitalize on weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries.
11. The Setai
The Setai was awarded the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Award in 2015 and 2016. Hosting celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, the resort is just the right destination for those who truly revere good taste paired with serenity and peace of mind.
12. St. Regis Princeville
Ben and Jen seem obviously prone to resorts and spending quality time together since they were guests in yet another one of the most luxurious resorts in the world.
13. Sandy Lane
Golf- extraordinaire Tiger Woods wedded Elin Nordegren at this Barbados resort. Both the ceremony and the honeymoon made Woods spare two of his millions and millions of dollars to celebrate the love he had with his ex-wife.
14. Aurora House
The climate, the pristine expansions of miles and miles of translucent waters and white sands attracted even the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. They visited once while they were dating and twice before the birth of their two children.
