May 11, 2018

Hugh Jackman’s Gwinganna Health Retreat

This is where Wolverine got in shape . From planning to stay for a few weeks to becoming the co owner. This fantastic resort on Australia’s Gold Coast  is the place to get away for some pampering in the most serene Australian setting.

Leonardo Dicaprio’s Blackadore Caye

We  love Leo and can’t wait for his ambitious luxury, eco-friendly resort on the island of Blackadore Caye in Belize with hotelier Jeff Gram of Cayo Espanto a private island. Leo discovered this 104-acre island 10 years back and bought it for $1.75 million and  most of the island will serve as a protected wildlife preserve; all power used will be sourced from renewable energy; and water will be provided through rainwater collection and onsite water treatment… everything we love .

Richard Gere’s The Bedford Post Inn

We are a little biased to historic buildings and short drive from New York City  in the charming town of Bedford, this fantastic property dates back to the 1860s and is situated amongst lush, rustic surroundings. A must for when you are next in New York.

Olivia Newton-John’s Gaia Retreat & Spa

Grease star Olivia Newton-John owns the Gaia Retreat & Spa alongside three other partners. The wellness resort, located in New South Wales, Australia, offers retreat packages, spa treatments, and activities such as yoga, organic cooking classes, boxing, meditation, clay sculpting, amongst others. This is really the place to go away …. and livewell.

Elizabeth Hurley’s No. 11 Cadogan Gardens

This  luxury boutique hotel in London’s fashionable Knightsbridge neighbourhood is located perfectly for all your shopping in some local pubs in Chelsea. The 54-room boutique hotel is near shopping Mecca Harrods, swanky Hyde Park and the River Thames—a good place to base yourself for an elite London experience and the service is impeccable.

Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch Hotel

This  gorgeous Mission Ranch Hotel, converted from a 19th century dairy house is everything you want for a getaway. This charming property sits on 22 acres and boasts 31 rooms, a tennis court, fitness center, on-site dining. We do have a special affinity to the name Eastwood.  Clint Eastwood, a former Carmel mayor and naturalist, bought this historic ranch and saved it  being converted into condos.

and finally

Richard Branson’s Necker Island

Hidden away in the beautiful British Virgin Island, Sir Branson’s very  own little slice of paradise with blue  waters lap at sandy beaches, and sunshine drenches the island almost year round. It really is heaven. This  ultra-luxe private island paradise in the heart of the British Virgin Islands, is making its own comeback in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

This is one to take  over the whole island  for a special occasion or rent individual rooms  for seven day if you don’t get an invite from Sir Branson himself.
