Dear Friends and Readers: Royal newlyweds Prince William and Kate are honeymooning on Descroches Island in the Seychelles and will also spend time on North Island.
The newly confirmed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are seeking privacy in the Seychelles which are popular with many celebrities: Bill Gates visited. Also Paul McCartney, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler, David and Victoria Beckham have also stayed there. Former U.S. Presidents, sports stars, rock stars, artists, authors and captains of industry have succumbed to its charms.
A Seychelles honeymoon provides an intimate and romantic retreat getaway. It will beckon those with adventurous hearts. The soft feel of sand beneath one\'s feet, slipping between the toes, offers travelers a glimpse into the magic of these islands.
When the royal couple travels, they want to avoid overwhelming complexity. Simplicity is the key goal. And this is exactly what visitors can achieve with a Seychelles vacation.
The Seychelles is a country consisting of 115 islands located 932 miles east of Africa, and northeast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. It is a magnificent place where tourists can explore protruding bluffs and cliffs above the sea with flights of birds and breathtaking views to the ocean. Seychelles has everything that one could need for a relaxing stay. The setting is a fiesta for the eyes.
The coast is, in fact, a grandstand for an opulent show of nature\'s finest. Beguiling giant tortoises, exotic orchids, parakeets and parrots careen above, soaring colonies of seabirds ride the air currents along the coastline, crabs and reptiles live among the rocks, opulent hummingbirds whiz through flowers, and whales explore the waters. In the evening there are sunsets, the moon and the stars.
Will and Kate will enjoy taking private late afternoon strolls along the coast. Smelling the salt air, feeling the spray and watching the voluminous waves crash dramatically into rocks is a continual mental massage.
At night, the royal couple will be amazed by the heavens, as they have never seen them before. There are so many glittering stars; they will have had a hard time navigating their way through the constellations. Occasional shooting stars will be flaring in the Milky Way.
The Seychelles has miles of coastline and beaches. There are hotels, galleries and restaurants to explore. Plentiful amounts of seafood, cheeses, wines and tea are available. Recreational activities like biking, hiking, boogie boarding, surfing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking are abundant and give tourists a flavor of island lifestyle.
The Seychelles Islands seduces those who are looking for clear-cut relief from anxiety, pressure and stress. Rest, rejuvenation and relaxation are essential ingredients to the smooth running of a body, mind and spirit, whether royal or non-royal.
The owner of a relaxed property in a convenient Seychelles location, illustrates this. 'People tell us this place is their sanctuary,' he remarks, 'People feel like they are really getting away from the chaos and challenges of life.'
It is important to look at the consequences of a stressful celebrity lifestyle. In most cases, no matter what the symptoms may be; irritability, discomfort, emotional distress, frustration, anger, helplessness, and so forth, there is often one common denominator, the loss of physical energy resulting in fatigue. A resort owner in the Seychelles explains, 'We have repeat guests who work in the entertainment industry and work non-stop.' He continues, 'They come here regularly and spend 7-10 days. They say staying here is the one thing that helps renew their sanity. They are recharged so they can go back and face their high stress profession.'
