Where Are They Wednesdays?

Do you ever wonder about celebrity travel hotspots? If you, (like Theresa and I), love all types of celeb-buzz you're going to love our new segment called 'Where Are They Wednesdays?' On multiple Wednesdays of each month we are going to share some of the latest travel gossip with our curious followers... Some weeks we'll highlight popular destinations more broadly (St. Bart's is a great example), while other weeks we'll feature particular properties recently visited by some of our favorite Hollywood A-listers.

Some of you may or may not have seen my facebook posting a few weeks ago about Reese + Jim's honeymoon in Belize. If you're not one that's typically 'up' on celebrity gossip, I'm referring to the actress Reese Witherspoon and her entertainment agent husband Jim Toth:


About a week before Reese's wedding I was working with a bride on exotic honeymoon ideas when I came across Francis Ford Coppola's resort in Belize called the Turtle Inn. I found it to be an enchanting place perfect for a couple in love and apparently, Reese and Jim think so too considering they chose it as their honeymoon destination!

The Turtle Inn features Balinese-style cabanas with artisan crafted furnishings, a luxury private Japanese bath and a broad-screened deck to welcome in the tropical sea air. One major perk to this property is the optional all-inclusive package which can help save a bundle. In case you were wondering they've got a great honeymoon package too which includes a full-day snorkel trip, a river boat tour, complimentary spa treatments and a chilled bottle of wine in the room upon arrival. What a welcome!


Another aspect I like about the Turtle Inn is the wide variety of room types. They have seafront cottages, gardenview villas, pool-side seaview suites, lagoon bungalows and family pavilions. Each are priced accordingly, so there truly is something for everyone.


If you tire of resting on the white sandy beach overlooking the clear water (if that's possible!) you could always sit by one of their two infinity pools. If you're not the type who enjoys vacations full of lounging and sunbathing, plenty of activities and experiences are offered through the resort as well: hikes to nearby caves and waterfalls, exploration of the ancient Mayan sites, beach & mountain biking to wildlife sanctuaries, snorkeling and more. Hmm, I wonder if Jim and Reese did any of that? Either way, I don't think we have to wonder if they enjoyed their stay at the Turtle Inn. Seems like it would be nearly impossible not to!

*Anyone who's ever watched the CW series 'Gossip Girl' will totally get my sign-off for this week ;-)
