You may not already know, along with many others, that celebrities don’t just splash their money on fancy cars and clothes. Some of them are actually very well business-minded, and they’ve invested in some prime holiday real estate to give them that extra passive income they crave. You should do exactly the same thing after your online lotto win. Read more to find out who these celebrity investors are.
1. Robert De Niro
He is currently the co-owner of the Nobu Hotel in Manila. Unfortunately, it has been titled as one of “the world’s worst.” Perhaps he should be more involved in the running of the hotel than simply being a shareholder? You can’t expect a business to flourish just because your name is behind it. On the contrary, you should work extra hard to make it perfect because it could damage your reputation and class.
2. Andy Murray
Not all celebs have failed when it comes to the hospitality industry, though. Andy Murray’s Cromlix Hotel has received consistently great reviews since it opened its doors in 2014. Andy is a Tennis star and Olympic gold medallist. The Cromlix is a Victorian country estate dating back to the 19th century.
The estate was transformed into a hotel in the 1980s, but Andy’s recent refurbishments made it a five-star luxury property. Go Andy!
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
His purchase decision hit the media when word got out that he had bought a $1.75 million island in Belize. He wants to build an eco-conscious tourist resort and is set to open in 2018.
4. Hugh Jackman – Gwinganna Health Retreat
Being the nature-lover that he is, Hugh spent a few weeks at this retreat on Australia’s Gold Coast while he was getting in peak physical condition for the film “Wolverine.” Because he liked it so much, he stayed two more months, and eventually bought it! The retreat has spa treatments, outdoor activities, stress therapy, and more, all in a stunning Australian setting.
5. Richard Gere – The Bedford Post Inn
The Inn sits in the lovely town of Bedford, New York. It dates back to the 1860s and is surrounded by lush vegetation.
6. Rupert Grint – Rigsby’s Guest House
Rupert played Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. He also happens to dabble in quite a few property investments. He once bought an entire ice-cream truck and bought shares in his parent’s hotel, Rigsby’s Guest House. Unfortunately, the hotel was closed in 2015 after making a measly $3,000 in four months.
The townhouse is going to be converted into apartment units.
7. Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones – Ariel Sands
This powerful Hollywood couple dreams of opening a resort in Bermuda. The project is already under way and opens in 2017. Tourists can enjoy beachside cottages, fresh water pools, beach access, and spas. The building will also be entirely eco-friendly, using green energy.
8. Clint Eastwood – Mission Ranch Hotel
Okay, now who wouldn’t want to stay here! This place is pure magic straight out of an old Western film. It’s located in Carmel-by-the-Sea and has 22 acres of land. 31 rooms, a tennis court, fitness centre, on-site dining, and much more is available to visitors.
9. Francis Ford Coppola
This legendary director is also a big entrepreneur. He owns two vineyards, a restaurant, a film studio, and five resorts.
His resorts include the Blancaneaux Lodge, the Turtle Inn in Belize, Palazzo Margherita in Italy, La Lancha in Guatemala, and Jardin Escondido in Argentina.
10. John Malkovich – The Big Sleep
This big actor is a primary investor in Big Sleep, a budget hotel franchise with hotels in Cardiff, Wales, and Cheltenham.
11. Robert Redford – Sundance Mountain Resort
If the fact that the handsome Robert Redford-owned this place and the enchanting name doesn’t make you want to go, then nothing else will! Robert founded the Sundance film festival, which is why he called the resort such.
It’s located on the slopes of Mount Timpanogos in Utah and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities like river rafting, horseback riding, fly fishing, and skiing.
12. Chris Blackwell – Goldeneye Resort
Bond. James Bond. This iconic retreat was the location where Ian Fleming wrote the James Bond novels. This place is also owned by none other than Bob Marley, who sold the property to Chris before he died.
13. Doris Day – The Cypress Inn
Doris runs a lovely boutique inn in the picturesque town Carmel-by-the-Sea. The inn is pet-friendly as Doris is an animal rights activist. Guests can enjoy a splendid courtyard and quaint guestrooms.
14. Donatella Versace – Palazzo Versace
Ladies and gentlemen, the House of Versace, where the most famous family member, Donatella, lives. The original palace is in Brisbane, Australia, but there will be two more built in the future: Macau and Dubai.
15. Paula Deen – Y’all Come Inn
Celebrity chef and cooking show host Paula Deen is so laid-back to the point of renting out her beach house on Tybee Island, Georgia, to guests all year round.
As you may have guessed, the place comes with a fully stocked kitchen, an outdoor shower, and wraparound porch. Guests also get an inclusive VIP dinner reservation at Paula’s restaurant, the Lady and Sons.
16. Jason Priestly – Terrace Beach Resort
This is a rustic retreat in the woods of British Columbia. It’s quite glorious. The property is in Ucluelet, nestled discreetly amongst the forest. Guests can choose to stay in different abodes such as lofts, suites, and waterfront cabins.
17. Emilio & Gloria Estefan – Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa
Their beachside resort is something out of a modern-day fairy-tale. It’s in Vero Beach, Florida, and is pet-friendly. Guests can enjoy gorgeous waterfront views, luxury spas, and paddle boarding, along with snorkelling.
18. Bono & The Edge – The Clarence Hotel
This hotel can be found in Dublin’s Temple Bar neighbourhood and is co-owned by Bono and the Edge of U2 fame. The property remains one of the hippest hotels in the Irish capital.
