Serena Williams is seriously living her best life this year — and now you can get in on a bit of the fun.
The tennis champion married her longtime beau, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, this month in an elaborate ceremony. The newlyweds and their two-month old daughter then spent a week honeymooning just off the Andros Great Barrier Reef in the Bahamas on , a 96-acre private island that welcomes only 70 guests at a time.
Williams gave a of the four-bedroom oceanfront villa, which the savvy trip planner said she reserved through . The 3,600-square-foot villa is outfitted with rain showers and tucked into a gorgeous tropical garden, situated perfectly for taking in panoramic views of sunsets over the Atlantic.
You can book it yourself for around , but your travel plans will need to include a helicopter, private boat, or seaplane to access the secluded family-run island.
Amenities include a personal golf cart, tennis courts (in case Williams just really needed to get a match in), a freshwater pool, the only overwater spa in the Bahamas, and just about any diving, kayaking, or similar ocean excursion you can dream of.
Before jetting off to relaxation, Williams prepped for her big day with her bridal party in a historic Greek Revival estate, also available for rent via , in the lower Treme neighborhood of New Orleans. Other highlights from her dream year (in no particular order) include selling and buying a couple mansions, winning her 23rd Grand Slam while 8 weeks pregnant, and giving birth to a bouncing baby girl.
We hope the star celebrated and luxuriated on her private beach with something cool and refreshing in hand — and maybe that she brings us with her next time.
