There are over 150 islands in the Seychelles -- so which one hosts honeymooners Prince William and Kate?

As it turns, out, one island just wasn't enough!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending their honeymoon on the Seychelles' North Island (pictured at left, in a photo provided by Vladi Private Islands) -- plus a nostalgic excursion to Desroches Island, two insiders confirm to Us Weekly.

William, 28, and Kate, 29, spent some quality time on Desroches -- he committed to marry her on that trip -- back in August 2007.  The Seychelles archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa.

German real estate mogul Farhad Vladi confirmed his royal guests to German newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt. "Yes, we rented the island to the British royal family," Vladi said. "Prince William and his Kate are spending their honeymoon there. But you will understand that we are not saying anything further."

And William, 28, and bride Kate, 29, are enjoying a luxe getaway indeed: North Island (where wedding guests David and Victoria Beckham once stayed) features 11 enormous villas, each with a private, open-air bathroom, full functioning kitchen and two bedrooms. Visitors enjoy stunningly beautiful beaches, a spa, unlimited scuba diving and an attentive staff that attends to guests' every need. (One night in one of those villas costs approximately $3,000 USD, a Vladi Private Islands rep tells Us.)

"It's pretty much the best place in the world," one-time North Island guest Martin Robinson tells Us of the "romantic" spot -- where staffers keep villas stocked with flowers and champagne.

"If budget is no issue, this is the perfect place for a honeymoon. You're not going to get much better in terms of privacy and seclusion."
