Although I never got caught up in the royal mania surrounding Will and Kate’s recent wedding, I was curious to learn of where they planned to spend their honeymoon. With the world at their feet, I hoped they would choose some place extraordinary. And while I would have most definitely chosen a place I hadn’t already visited, I must say that the Seychelles are pretty spectacular. And for those who can afford to indulge in the new “Prince William and Kate Middleton” Honeymoon Package (starting at $1,500) at Raffles Praslin Seychelles, life is all the sweeter. The new package involves accommodation in an Ocean View Pool villa with a private plunge pool, daily breakfast, a 90-minute couples’ spa treatment in an open-air room with views of the Indian Ocean, a romantic dinner for two on the beach, a private guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vallee de Mai, a welcome amenity, Champagne on arrival along with a drawn bath, and airport transfers. It’s an indulgent way to make the most of a romantic holiday in the Seychelles and feel like true royalty.
