Royal R&R!

Newlyweds Prince William and Kate are honeymooning on the islands of the Seychelles — specifically Descroches island and will soon be heading to the North Island.

Farhad Vladi, who rented the North Island to the newly anointed Duke and Duchess, told Us Weekly William and Kate aren't the first celebs to seek the solace of Seychelles. "Bill Gates was on Fregate Island… Paul McCartney and Heather Mills were on Cousin, another island in the Seychelles," he said. "Angelina Jolie was on North Island with Brad Pitt."

"What people like about North Island is that you have total privacy," Vladi explained of Kate and Will's second honeymoon destination.

A recent guest of the villas told Us: "It's pretty much the best place in the world… It's very romantic. The staff fill your baths… and they put champagne on ice. All your drinks are included in the price."

The luxurious accommodations — where David and Victoria Beckham have also vacationed — cater to their guests' every whim. "They pre-contact you and ask if you have likes or dislikes — what meat you like, chicken, beef, vegetarian, fish, so they have a good idea of what you like… And you can make any requests at any time."

The islands are made up of private villas, each of which has its own guest relations officer, a butler and a chef. "If budget is no issue, this is the perfect place for a honeymoon," the guest said. "You're not going to get much better in terms of privacy and seclusion, as long as you're reasonably happy with there being little to do. You have unlimited scuba diving included in your rental and there's a spa."
