It's pretty easy to be a bit envious of celebrity vacations. But Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's honeymoon in the Maldives takes it to another level. The duo recently shared pictures from their romantic getaway at the stunning Soneva Fushi, an American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts property, and every detail is simply perfect.
Turner took to Instagram to post pictures from the private island located in the Baa Atoll, revealing the luxurious details of the property. "Paradise," she wrote alongside images of Jonas lounging in an overwater hammock and riding a bike through the jungle. "Such a magical place #discoversoneva." The Game of Thrones star also shared a photo of her husband enjoying some sushi at what appears to be a sushi counter called So Hands On, which is run in partnership with chef Kenji Gyoten, Japan's youngest three-starred sushi chef.
Jonas also wanted to show off their vacation and did so by posting a video of him enjoying a ride down a two-story-tall waterslide into the clear blue waters. "I found happiness #discoversoneva," he wrote. The unique waterslide is part of the Out of the Blue dining destination on the island launched in May 2018. Along with being able to zip straight into the ocean, guests can enjoy several restaurants and lounge areas. There's even an exclusive chef's table experience where eight guests can experience dishes from some of the world's top chefs, all while overlooking the Indian Ocean.
The singer also shared pictures of his new wife in a pink bathing suit relaxing in another overwater hammock while showing off her new wedding ring and of the actress enjoying a sunset on the beach.
As far as where the couple enjoyed their honeymoon nights, they had the option of any one of the 62 stunning beachfront villas that cost anywhere from $1,400 to $28,000 a night, depending on the size and amenities. Many come standard with private pools, and all have secluded beach access and provide a ton of privacy. And the property recently unveiled Villa 37, a 20,000-square-foot five-bedroom villa, featuring a 36-foot-tall viewing tower and dining table called "the Moonlight Table," offering the tallest point on the island. It also comes with a library, sauna, steam room, pool table, and a 3,700-square-foot pool that wraps around the entire front of the villa.
Though the resort provides plenty of luxurious amenities, the motto is still "No News, No Shoes" encouraging guests to adopt a barefoot luxury attitude. Perhaps it's this Maldivian attitude that attracted the duo to visit the country the year prior. Yup, the pair vacationed at Coco Prive resort where it costs a whopping $45,000 a night for a completely bespoke experience.
