They got engaged in Kenya, and it appears that William and Kate are continuing to celebrate their romantic connection with East Africa, by choosing to honeymoon in the Seychelles. According to several media reports, real estate mogul Farhad Vladi revealed that he has rented the remote private North Island in the Seychelles archipelago, to the royal couple. This is not the first time the couple has vacationed in the Seychelles. In 2007, they rented out the entire Desroches Island Resort, the only accommodation on the idyllic island of the same name. According to William at the time, it was the best vacation he had ever had. The young couple were just coming off a brief split in their relationship that spring.
The North island is home to 11 exclusive, ultra-luxurious villas. Each 4,890 square foot villa comes with private butler service, a chef, and several maids -- a staff that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have vowed they would be doing without back in the UK. As well as being pampered, the newly-weds have a gorgeous private beach and will likely spend quite a bit of time scuba diving, one of Prince William's favorite sports. The Seychelles islands offer some of the best diving in the world. Other than sunbathing and swimming, the royal couple can take nature walks, zoom around in a dune buggy, ride mountain bikes, and enjoy romantic dinners on the beach.
