Where Supermodels Go on Vacation?

Even though it's fun to explore the rustic side of things from time to time, it's also fun to live the luxe life. It seems like celebrities disappear off to private islands, but they also stay in luxury hotels like the rest of us! Sometimes they hang out on the beach, other times they pick the slopes, and you'll be surprised when you catch them in other places, too. MSNBC took a look at where some of the hottest celebs hang out on vacation, and you'll be pleased to know that we've got connections in some of these great locations dotted in both cold and warm spots around the globe. From St. Moritz to the French Riviera, you'll be enjoying your time like a celebrity soon enough!

Where to Go

Kate Moss is just one supermodel who has visited Spain—in fact, she spends time in Ibiza nearly every year! Sir Philip Green, known for being a billionaire as well as the boss and owner of Topshop, recently sent Kate Moss and her rock star boyfriend Jamie Hince to a special spot on Mallorca's northwest coast. Andrew Lloyd Webber, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Michael Douglas all owns homes in Spain as well, and there are lots of amazing places hidden in the hills to check out as you drive on the tiny, winding roads.

Where Should You Stay?
Hotel Marques de Riscal: This new landmark hotel, located near Elciego, was designed by Frank O. Gehry, who worked on the Guggenheim Museum as well. 43 comfortable, modern suites are within the reach of the vineyard region, and when you come back from a leisurely day of wine tasting, you can check out the spa, which is the backbone of the hotel's leisure facilities. Any celeb would be pleased to experience the sights and tastes of this special spot.

Unsurprisingly, some of the Brazilian models who grace Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated head back to Brazil to enjoy their vacations. Gisele Bundchen, for example, spends time on the beach in Rio de Janeiro, and has been spotted enjoying the Copacabana Hotel and all it has to offer. Word has it that Gisele also likes to spend time in luxury hotels around Brazil with panoramic views of the city and water. Supermodel Naomi Campbell has also been seen in Brazil, where she doesn't just love luxury guest homes, but luxury boats as well.

Where Should You Stay?
Copacabana Palace Hotel: One of Gisele Bundchen's favorite hotels, the Copacabana Palace Hotel, has been recently refurbished and remains one of the primary landmarks on the beach. You can book special tours for jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and boating, but you can also stay in your centrally-located hotel for the excellent room service and perks! Celebs do love their room service. . .

Model Heidi Klum looks gorgeous on the runway, but now that she's pregnant, she's sneaking in more time to relax (finally). The wife of Seal and Project Runway host vacations often in Mexico, where she owns a villa with her husband, and they soak up the bohemian atmosphere and exotic architecture that dots the area near Puerta Vallarta and Manzanillo.

Where Should You Stay?
One&Only Palmilla: Not only will you be vacationing like a celebrity when you are at the One&Only, but you might just get to see some when you're staying here! One of the world's best resorts, this luxury getaway sits by the beautiful Sea of Cortez, where it has been holding court in Los Cabos since 1956. Its earliest guests included Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, John Wayne, and United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Go on, live it up like a supermodel!
