After enjoying a picture-perfect wedding in New Orleans, Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola and her new husband, Fray guitarist Joe King set off on the honeymoon of a lifetime on a private island.
Just days after enjoying a traditional French Quarter wedding at New Orleans’ spectacular Maison Montegut (Louisiana, USA), newlyweds Candice Accola (Vampire Diaries) and Joe King (The Fray) packed their designer bags and jetted off on the honeymoon of a lifetime, commandeering an entire island just off the coast of Belize for a wild week of wedded bliss.
The young couple were understandably over the moon at their incredible island surroundings – indeed, just minutes after landing on the picturesque private island, the 27-year old Vampire Diaries star uploaded a series of photos to her Twitter and WhoSay profiles, much to the delight (and envy!) of her millions of followers.
“Twas a Honeymoon in paradise!@aprivateisland #rumfunsun #cayoespanto #unBelizeable,” enthused Candice, before new hubby and Fray guitarrist, Joe King (34) got in on the social media action, posting three simply stunning pictures of the couples’ temporary island abode via his Instagram handle, @josekingseco.
Their destination of choice was Cayo Espanto – a world-class private island paradise located on the cusp of the Caribbean Sea. According to private island rental bible Cool Private Island Resorts – The World’s 101 Best Private Islands (teNeues, 2013), the resort is “designed for discriminating guests who demand the best the world has to offer.”
It’s not the first time that a couple of famous faces have washed up on Cayo Espanto, either. As island owner Jeff Gram told Private Island News back in 2012, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro are just some of the famous names which can all be found within the Belizean retreat’s bulging guest book – perhaps a result of the decision to include a stay on the island within the gift bag handed out at the 2011 Academy Awards.
As the team of Vladi Island Travel explain however, it’s not just famous faces that receive the royal retreatment on Cayo Espanto – whether you’re a harried CEO dropping by for a quick weekend getaway or a family looking for a luxury holiday with plenty of child-friendly fun, a stay on this 5-star private paradise is sure to go above and beyond even your wildest expectations.
Home to a maximum of 18 guests at any one time, Cayo Espanto truly elevates the private island experience to a higher plane.
