Fancy vacation packages, Celebrity honeymoons, Hawaii honeymoons

This article taught me about Hip Hotels, which is teaming up with Virgin Holidays to offer vacation packages that include unique hotel experiences. Apparently a few people had already heard of these guys:

Hip Hotels, a collection of ‘highly individual places’, was first published by Thames and Hudson in 1999. It became an immediate publishing success, briefly even outselling Harry Potter.

An interesting hotel can certainly make a vacation more memorable. When I went to Algonquin Park I saw a moose. I also pumped water for showers in the ecolodge we stayed at. I tell the pumping water story more often than the moose sighting story (although both experiences were pretty memorable).

This old blog entry has some stuff on weird hotels and the links still work.

With these Virgin Holiday / Hip Hotel packages, you have to be willing to spend some serious money:

Virgin says it is marketing the brand on the quality of service, rather than price, but there are some reasonable deals. Rooms at the Hotel on Rivington, a swish design palace in New York’s Lower East Side, usually start at around $500, but Virgin and Hip Hotels are offering three nights, including flights on Virgin Atlantic and private transfers, from £935.

That might not be expensive enough for celebrities like Sandra Bullock and David Beckham, but if you want to know where they honeymoon this article lists a few. For example:

Victoria and David Beckham = the south of France

Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd = Italy

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher = the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I in Barcelona, Spain

You can see that the article is a bit short on details (we get Demi Moore’s hotel but nothing about where in Italy Jennifer Lopez visited).

It may not be a celebrity thing, but this blogger is having a nice honeymoon in Hawaii. I didn’t see a lot of travel tips, but sometimes it’s just nice to see someone sharing a good time. The pictures are excellent as well.

There is some Hawaii stuff on this blog of course. This one might have been the most recent. This is one of the oldest. A search will reveal many in between.
