Naturally, Prince William and Kate Vacation at the World's Most Stunning Villa

Mar 10 2014 - 4:10pm

Prince William and Kate Middleton don't always vacation alone together, but when they do, they do it in the Maldives . . . at a stunning property that just opened in January. The royal couple arrived at the Indian Ocean destination yesterday and are rumored to be staying a week [1], according to People. If there's any place that can play host to the royals, it's the brand-new Cheval Blanc Randheli [2] designed by architect Jean-Michel Gathy with three different types of villas. All the architecture is modern but meant to enhance the gorgeous natural surroundings. If you wanted to stay one weekend this month at a water villa, it would cost you $2,100 per night. Of course, we wouldn't expect any less.

Get ready for some major travel envy because what you're looking at is an aerial view of the property. Guests have to take a private seaplane to get there.

We love how all the villas have their own distinct but equally striking designs.
