Who doesn’t like a bit of luxury? If money were no object, we have all thought about taking that dream luxury vacation on a secluded island with powder fine white sandy beaches or in a seductive five star Swiss Alp hotel with stunning views.
Whether it’s in the middle of nowhere with luscious landscapes or front of a sunny beach, celebrities can make their thoughts become things unlike us. They make sure they getaway from paparazzi and escape to celebrate with their friends and family. Perhaps, the most valuable amenity for B-town actors is privacy.
Apart from their long-term nests, most have drool worthy holiday abodes abroad, which cost a bomb though. Be prepared to be awed-perhaps tad jealous-as we take you on a tour of the swanky holiday homes of these A-stars. Get a peek into their plush holiday homes.
With net worth of $750 million, it was a piece of cake for him to spend on a plush holiday home worth of INR 17.84 crores. However, the actor claims it as a gift (his payment for endorsing Palm Jumeirah). The signature villa comes with a private beach and its own pool spread over two levels of gigantic 8500 sq. feet property and enveloped by 14000sq. feet plot. King Khan often comes here to celebrate and have private parties with his Bollywood buds and family.
He also owns another apartment in central London worth about £20 million and a multi-crore beach house in Alibaug for a quick getaway. If SRK is in a mood for a party right away, he gets on his private chopper to head to this holiday home. (Time to deal with that sinking horrible feeling! Gosh)
Amitabh’s bungalows always had a craze among people (Jalsa & Pratiksha). Apart from five other bungalows in Mumbai, he also owns a property in the fashion capital Paris, which he bought for Jaya Bachchan as a gift ( somebody would have been chuffed to bits)
Not to be left behind, Ash-Abhi’s holiday villa in Dubai Sanctuary Falls in Jumeirah Golf estates is no short of a palace. They shelled out about INR 54 crores for this plush abode, which is a gift to their daughter, Aradhya. With a swimming pool, bar and home theater, it looks jaw-droppingly beautiful with every inch as stylish and sophisticated as you would expect.
Bollywood elite Akshay’s fondness of Canada is deep (not because he is a Punjabi). It was in this picturesque locale of Calgary in Canada, Akshay fell head over heels in love with Twinkle. Akshay loves this place so much, that he got Canadian citizenship and bought a hill in Toronto ( you read it right!). He is planning to build a villa soon and also owns several other properties in Canada(posh apartments and bungalows).
He possesses a opulent Portuguese bungalow in Anjuna beach, Goa which he bought for his wife Twinkle. Also invested in a holiday home in the popular Mauritian beach (his father-in-law was among the first Bollywood stars to have filmed in Mauritius).
This former Miss World is one of the most desirable woman in the world, who has everything one could ever dream of. Not just her looks make you envy her, her dream haven in Goa too. This ‘Baywatch’ beauty loves the idea of soaking in the sea breeze and living close by sea. The bungalow has a couple of rooms and a small lawn among other amenities, which is a stone’s throw from the Baga beach.
Did you know that this model turned actor is one of the smartest real estate owners in Bollywood ? John is reputed to not only have 60,000 sq. ft of premier property in Mumbai.
He owns a lavish condo in Bel Air, Los Angeles, makes him the neighbor of Hollywood stars Jennifer Anniston and Angelina Jolie. He also has many properties in his kitty along with one in Central London.
Raj gifted an apartment to Shilpa in the world’s tallest building, Burj kalifa (definitely has the wow factor). Though, she sold this plush pad recently as she thought it was ‘too small’. Also, Raj-Shilpa’s 100 crore worth “Raj Mahal” with gorgeous period detail is in Surrey, London.
It has 7 bedrooms with a lavish touch in every sense. They are proud owners of other plush properties in Mayfair and Oxford Street, London.
Gstaad, Switzerland is a holiday home to Bollywood couple Kareena and Saif with explosive views. A weekend in Gstaad would be luxury indeed, for the privacy it offers. Who needs a palace in a busy city, when you own a Chalet in Swiss Alps! As it is Kareena’s favorite place and as Saif also loves skiing in this fairy tale getaway.
