Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic


In April 2017 Drake enjoyed some down time in the Dominican Republic. After finishing his European tour the Canadian rapper escaped to an ocean front lodge in the luxury resort of Casa de Campo. Just days earlier his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez was spotted in the same resort, it is rumoured that she even rented the same villa.

The Dominican Republic is a hidden jewel and often gets overlooked, but with its lush green rolling hills, palm-fringed secluded beaches and buzzing nightlife, this is not a destination to be ignored.

Casa de Campo, on the south east coast of the island, is the main port of entry and the luxurious resort and marina can host luxury yachts up to 76.2 metres. But if you can bear to pull yourself away from the stunning resort, the country has plenty more to offer.

Santo Domingo is the country's vibrant capital. With it’s winding, cobblestone streets, traditional shopping and plenty of drinking and dancing, it’s the perfect place to get a taste of this unspoilt corner of the Caribbean.

Punta Cana is a stunning stretch of coastline on the south west side of the island. Model turned actress Elsa Patasky was seen enjoying this idyllic part of the country in February 2017 whilst shooting for fashion magazine Glamour. Posting pictures of herself and friends relaxing in the pool and running along white sandy beaches.

Phuket, Thailand


In March 2017, American actress Lindsay Lohan enjoyed a luxurious holiday in Thailand, where she spent some time exploring the islands around Phuket and luxuriating at Sri Panwa before heading north to Amanpuri. She posted pictures of herself paddleboarding and soaking up the sun on a private river cruise.

Thailand has welcomed a myriad of stars to its plethora of luxury hotels and villas in recent years, including Kate Moss, Blake Lively, Jay Z, Beyonce, Naomi Campbell, Zayn Malik, Damien Hirst, the Kardashians and Bear Grylls, who has supposedly bought a house there.

Aside from the famously lively nightlife, Phuket is a hot spot for incredible natural landscapes and ancient culture. Nature lovers mustn't miss the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre or the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park's waterfalls. Phang Nga Bay is also a must visit, as is the Big Buddha seated atop the Nakkerd Hills.

The Ao Po Grand Marina in Phuket, located at the gateway to the Phang Nga Bay, has 300 berths and can host luxury yachts over 100 metres. Additionally, there are a number of good anchorages around the island's south and south-western coastlines.

Tetiaroa, Tahiti


Former President Barack Obama jetted off to the Tetiaroa Atoll in Tahiti in March 2017 to unwind at the famous eco-friendly Brando Resort, where former First Lady Michelle Obama joined him. In need of a vacation after his presidency, he previously visited Necker Island (pictured) for a spot of kitesurfing in January.

The Tahitian island rose to fame in 1962 as the backdrop for Mutiny on the Bounty, starring Marlin Brando, Trevor Howard and Richard Harris, making it one of the top movie locations to visit on a luxury vacation. Brando then bought the island in 1967 and invited friends Robert De Niro and Quincy Jones to visit his paradise in French Polynesia.

In 2014, ten years after his death, The Brando Resort opened and it is said that Leonardo Di Caprio has stayed in the luxury eco hotel and spa.

Superyachts up to 100 metres can moor in the Marina de Pape'ete in Tahiti, where guests can take a private aircraft to the resort.
