Planning to pull out all the stops to celebrate your anniversary in style this year? Want the adventure to come close to your original honeymoon or even top it?
Think like Bond.
James Bond, that is.
The world is 007’s oyster and the hotels and resorts featured in his big-screen escapades serve as the perfect backdrops for romance, wonder and pampering – lots of pampering. Here are just a few of our favorite hotels and resorts featured in Bond flicks through the years. They all double beautifully as anniversary getaway destinations and some are especially suited for couples who want to renew their vows:
One&Only, Paradise Island, Bahamas: Featured in “Casino Royale,” this all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas is a favorite for couples who want to be treated like royalty. The resort itself boasts some of the most romantic rooms in the Bahamas and the turquoise waters and white, sandy beaches are perfect for those who want to soak up a few rays. The One&Only has its own spa, golf course, restaurants and even special attractions for children should you plan to bring them along for the adventure.
Fontainebleau, Miami Beach, Florida: Located on a stretch of private beach, this Miami hotel is famed the world over for its luxury service and stunning rooms that don’t skip a beat on the creature comforts. The hotel was featured in “Goldfinger,” but it’s also known as one of Miami’s hottest destinations for the movers and shakers of the entertainment world. It’s been a playground (and stage) for such notables as Elvis, the Beatles, Dean Martin, Sylvester Stallone and Madonna.
Hotel Cipriani, Venice, Italy: If European luxury is your idea of anniversary splendor, why not take a tip from 007 and consider Venice for your getaway? The Hotel Cipriani was featured in “Casino Royale” for a reason: it’s a stunning destination. The waterfront hotel boasts breathtaking suites, its own gondola, a fitness center and much more. Its staff is also well-versed in helping couples plan vow renewal ceremonies, as well. Plus, it’s hard to deny the romantic magnetism of Venice.
The Langham, London, England: Prefer to visit Mr. Bond’s home country for your anniversary adventure? If so, London is the place to go and the Langham is the place to stay. Stately doesn’t begin to describe this hotel featured in “GoldenEye.” Here you can expect to be treated like royalty. From its topnotch dining to its stunning indoor pool, the Langham knows how to make guests feel welcome.
