Wondrously beautiful landscapes, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, coral reef, white sand, palm trees, and upscale hotels are not the only things that annually attract hundreds of thousands of travelers, in particular celebrities. The latter especially value one important feature of the Maldives – privacy.
It is the Maldives, consisting of more than 1000 coral islands, that provides sports, show business, and cinema stars with the opportunity to relax and enjoy their vacation in seclusion away from crowds of fans and pesky paparazzi cameras.
Despite the level of privacy promised to both celebrities and mere mortals, some information still leaks into the media. Thanks to this, we have managed to compile a small top of hotels, which are preferred by the most famous persons on our planet for their holidays.
