So in love in the Seychelles!

Newlywed royals William and Kate are spending a super-luxe one-and-a-half week honeymoon on North Island, one of over 100 islands in the lush African island-nation in the Indian Ocean -- and the new Us Weekly, out now, has brand-new details on the once-in-a-lifetime getaway. (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie plus David and Victoria Beckham have also spent time on the posh former British colony.)

At a reported cost of $720,000, the Duke, 28, and Duchess, 29, rented out 11 villas at North Island Lodge. Some of the amenities: A private butler tending to their every whim (from a beachside ice cream sundae to a specific pillow!); an open-air bath filled with frangipani flowers; golf carts and mountain bikes to check out the island's remarkable flora and fauna, and more. (Just one of those hand-crafted villas has two bedrooms and nearly 5,000 square feet of space!)

PHOTOS: Look back on the royal wedding

"They have been looking forward to this trip as much as they were their wedding," one Kate source tells Us. The getaway (where, perhaps, a royal heir could be conceived!) is "the first time in months they can relax together, away from everything and anyone."
