It quickly became headlines when the most eligible bachelor George Clooney announced his engagement and then marriage to the celebrated humanitarian Amal Alamuddin in 2014. They had a perfect wedding in the romantic city of Venice. The fans and most people from the film fraternity would have thought it to be the pinnacle of the solemnization of their dreamy union. But Hollywood’s most stylish actor’s choice of honeymoon destination in Seychelles became another talk of the town. The couple jetted off after spending four days in Venice to the same resort where Prince William and his wife Kate honeymooned.
What was supposed to be a top-secret soon grabbed the media’s attention and led to a sort of frenzy among his admirers when the details of their post-nuptial luxury vacation started making rounds on the internet. The paparazzi revealed it was an insanely expensive honeymoon for newlyweds at the North Island resort. But what is so remarkable about this Seychelles resort?
Well, for the uninitiated, North Island hotel with sea view has earned a name for being one of the most expensive hotels across the globe. On the 462 acres of land, the private resort offers a choicest range of 11 private villas, each dotting 5,000 square feet of area with separate plunge pools. You would need a helicopter to reach them. It seems to be the favorite hideaway of A-listers like Brad and Angie, actress Salma Hayek and her billionaire husband, François-Henri Pinault, who also chose it as their after-wedding getaway. Celebs seem to enjoy this hotel for its home-away-from-home ambiance, privacy, services, facilities, rooms and location.
Do you need more reasons why the Hollywood star selected the North Island resort for their honeymoon? If news reports are anything to go by, it was on BFF Brad Pitt’s recommendation that Clooney made this decision. He wanted to take his wife Amal to the most beautiful corner of the planet, something that surpassed the charm of Venice too, and thus, they landed there. According to sources, the luxury villa the dashing actor had rented cost more than $5,000 per person per night. Now, that’s truly something to swoon over!
He wears many hats as a leading actor, film director, philanthropist, screenwriter, and producer. So far, Clooney has bagged 2 Academy Awards and 3 Golden Globe Awards. Almost everyone recognizes him to be one of the most successful professionals in his areas of work. Although he started pursuing his acting career when he was only 21, Clooney courted actual fame for the first time for his character in drama ER. Soon he attracted film opportunities also. But it was only in 1999 he left TV to focus on movies.
George Clooney has acted in many films. But the ones that established him in Hollywood include “Up in the Air,” “Syriana,” “The Descendants,” and “The Perfect Storm.”
Her engagement with George in 2014 may have been the first time when people learned about her existence. But Amal was already successful in her profession by then. She is one of the renowned London barristers, practicing international human rights law dealing with forces like ISIS. She is the inspiration for many young women of today who want to carve a path for themselves in unconventional fields like her.
While they seem to share the most loveable equation between each other, their marriage life is an example of how two strong and successful individuals can also get along and spend countless happy moments together. Both are accomplished personalities in the truest sense – Clooney ‘a world’s most desirable bachelor and celebrated actor,’ whereas Amal ‘a human rights lawyer.’
They created many magical moments together, from the time they married in 2014 to the luxury vacation they spent at a dreamy hotel with a sea view. Their nuptial journey took another pleasant turn when they gave birth to the twins Ella and Alexander in the year 2017.
Clooney, an old-school romantic, loves to write letters to his wife, and she also does the same even when they are in the same house, to express their emotions for each other. They plan a weekend getaway every year where only two of them go without kids. However, before taking off, the couple leaves a handwritten note for each child with a date on it.
Isn’t this too sweet of them? Even after seven years of marriage, the power couple continues to enjoy one another’s company. Their trust and love feels unbelievably surreal. May the duo keep creating happy moments in their lives and spread cheers all around through their example. Amidst this season of the pandemic, they can be one of the most positive distractions for sure.
