Wonder how Kate Middleton and Prince William spent their honeymoon in the Seychelles? Us Weekly reports: "At a reported cost of $720,000, the Duke, 28, and Duchess, 29, rented out 11 villas at North Island Lodge. Some of the amenities: A private butler tending to their every whim (from a beachside ice cream sundae to a specific pillow!); an open-air bath filled with frangipani flowers; golf carts and mountain bikes to check out the island's remarkable flora and fauna, and more. (Just one of those hand-crafted villas has two bedrooms and nearly 5,000 square feet of space!)" [Us Weekly]
