You Could Rent Serena Williams' Honeymoon Villa in the Bahamas
Originally published by Travel + Leisure
Serena Williams is having a seriously great month for travel.
In early November, the tennis superstar married her longtime boyfriend, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, in an over-the-top ceremony in the streets of New Orleans. There, she stayed with her entire bridal party inside a million-dollar mansion courtesy of HomeAway.
In an Instagram story, Williams gave followers a tour of the mansion that comes with eight bedrooms, 18 beds, five full baths, three half baths, and a separate guest cottage. And luckily for us anyone can rent for $1,250 per night.
“Is this the most gorgeous home you’ve ever seen?” Williams shared with followers. “It’s so perfect, I absolutely love it.”
Now Williams is sharing her location once again, this time for her honeymoon in Kamalame Cay, which also happens to be Travel + Leisure’s World's Best Resort Hotel in the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Caribbean for 2017.
In a brief Instagram video, Williams shows off her lavish digs, which sit directly on the beach at Kamalame Cay. Williams also revealed she booked the property simply using Booking.com (she apparently loves her web booking sites).
And it’s no surprise that Williams and Ohanian are enjoying their time on Kamalame Cay, as it’s a 96-acre private island that has just 19 villas.
The island is just a short ferry ride from the neighboring island of Andros, but you’ll likely never spot a neighbor while you’re there. In fact, Williams and Ohanian will likely be spending a lot of time just together as there is not a single television on the entire island. Instead, it’s filled only with the most luxurious Indonesian furniture, Oriental carpets, and muslin-draped French windows.
And while it may feel like you’re Gilligan and Mary Ann on your own desolate island, fear not as there is a dedicated staff available for your every whim 24 hours a day.
As for activities, we are sure the active pair are busy snorkeling, boating, or walking along the three-mile beach around the island. Or maybe they are both relaxing for once and just kicking it by the shore. Either way, we wish were there, too.
