When it comes to luxury travel, nobody can do it quite like a Hollywood celebrity. From private jets to private islands and instaperfect photos, their holidays are the epitome of good life. But celebrities crave similar things as us mortals. Pristine beaches, adventure sports, sunny terrains, lakeside views and not to forget luscious foods that make a holiday memorable are the classic ingredients of a Hollywood vacation too. What are the odds of bumping into a Hollywood celebrity on your next trip then?

If you play your cards well and choose the right vacation spots, then you are very likely to do some celebrity sightings on your next trip. Here are some of the most popular Hollywood holiday choices:

The French Riviera 

A hit with the likes of Elton John, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp The French Riviera enjoys a unique status among Hollywood stars. One reason why The French Riviera is so popular is because of the mild Mediterranean weather all year round. 

The French call it Cote d’Azur meaning the Azure coast is neighbors with Menton, Monaco and Theoule sur Mer along its coast.

The Riviera is home to some of the most beautiful beaches, views, crystal clear water, yachts and also some of the wealthiest people. It also boasts of some charming villages and towns and a bustling art scene.

Some of its busiests months are from July to August and you are highly likely to spot a celebrity or two if you visit during this time.


From Acapulco to Cabo San Lucas to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, Mexico is unparalleled when it comes to luxury vacations.

While Cancun and Mayan Riviera are among the top beaches in the world, Hollywood stars flock to Mexico so frequently because of its proximity to Los Angeles.

Depending on their destination and mode of transport they can land in Mexico from Los Angeles within a matter of a few hours.

Cabo San Lucas is one of the most popular of these. A resort city on the southern tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas is perfect for a quick getaway. And the best part? It is only a two hour flight from Los Angeles.

Cabo boasts not only of beautiful waterfronts and beaches but several landmarks, museums, water sports and beautiful hotels., 

St Barts

From Leonardo Di Caprio, Martha Stewardt, Chrissy Tiegan to Jessica Alba, and Beyonce everybody loves St Bart’s.

Just getting there is an adventure in itself because there are no direct flights to St Barts. You can of course charter your own plane, which is why it is such a hit among the celebrities.

The second best option is a flight to Princess Juliana International Airport on the Dutch side of St. Maarten where you choose your own adventure for the final journey. Either a short plane ride or an hour long ferry crossing.

Interestingly, the runway in St. Bart is one of the shortest in commercial airlines so the flying option is not for the faint of heart. 

There is no dearth of luxury resorts and hotels on the island and you can also rent your own villas. The island is well-known for its election of palatial homes from one-bedroom stays to eight-bedroom mansions.

Of course if you want to rub shoulders with Hollywood royalty then it is Le Toiny, Hotel Isle de France, Hotel Le Sereno for you.

The best time to visit is from November through June as it gets too hot from December through April. 

Las Vegas 

Nobody does Vegas quite like the A-listers. Not only do they have the means to enjoy the riches of Vegas, they can flit through the restaurants, the nightclubs, the golf courses, the pools and of course the casinos.

Las Vegas is a great city for celebrity spotting. Some of the most famous faces on the planet are regulars at the popular jaunts in Vegas. If you want to bask in the limelight and get some bragging rights along the way, Vegas is the place to be.

Some of the most popular locations to get your share of stardust include Caesars Palace, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, Palms Casino Resort, The Palazzo at the Venetian, The Mirage, The Venetian. But really just about any nightclub and exclusive club serves the opportunity.

If you are a fan of gambling and casinos however, you can get Las Vegas to come to you, any time you like. Did you know that the live casino experience online is quite similar to the casinos of Vegas?

Many of the casinos provide a comprehensive gaming experience by offering players a second casino, live casinos, sportsbook, lottery game and much more. Casinos have software from some of the top companies for a superior experience that includes more than 400 games.


Beaches, waterfront, adventure, sunshine and some entertainment. Celebrities desire pretty much the same things as us when it comes to their holidays. So on your next trip, do some research and choose a location that will earn you some bragging rights.
