Honeymoon like Hollywood

  |   By Stephanie Gray

The biggest request celebrities make when it comes to their post-nuptial getaway is privacy—a must-have for any honeymooning couple.  Next week I'm jetting off to the beautiful islands of Turks and Caicos—located in the Caribbean just a short flight from Miami—a spot that is a fave of celebs thanks to hideaway hot spots and breathtaking beaches.


Honeymoon like Hollywood

Most recently Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz honeymooned at the Parrot Cay Resort (, a spot frequented by Hollywood's finest. After their extravagant wedding in Italy, Eva Longoria-Parker and Tony Parker also chose Parrot Cay for their post-wedding escape. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck went the destination route and exchanged vows at the same property. Aside from honeymooners, there are several stars that have purchased villas in the region, including Bruce Willis, Keith Richards and designer Donna Karan. While I won't be staying in Parrot Cay, I will be exploring the adjacent island of Providenciales, which is also the most developed, and staying specifically in the Grace Bay area, which has been named one of the best beaches in the world. I'll definitely be back to share my travel tales and would love to know where you're planning on taking your honeymoon or where you'd go if money were no object!
