Need to get away from it all...and fast? Holiday like a celeb in a few of the most chilled and off the beaten path vacay hotspots.

Tulum, Mexico

Tulum Ruins, Quintana Roo

Idyllically situated on the southern most tip of Mexico's Riviera Maya lies the bohemian, eco-getaway of Tulum and the new mecca for the super stylish.

From salt water showers in an open cabana and dipping into underground cenotes to watching sea turtles come in to shore under the stars, it really is the most idyllic of escapes - even your phone can have a recharge as reception is pretty poor.

Visitors are an eclectic mix, although the Tulum crowd doesn't pay much attention to status or bling.

Ideally situated by the lush tropical beach, NYE festival celebrations were held at the Tulum ruins - Alexa Chung and Florence Welch flew in for the epic party.

Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and countless A-listers flock to the area for the Amansala Eco-chic Resort's Bikini Bootcamp too.

Budva, Montenegro

Budva Stari Grad, Montenegro

During the '60s, Montenegro, boringly meaning 'black mountain', had a brief heyday when stars like Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren would frolic in the jazzy casinos but this soon fizzled out.

Only when Montenegro was one of the locations for the 2006 remake of Casino Royale, did the country get its second wind.

The hidden gem is sun soaked and it's fast becoming one of the most exclusive places to holiday.

Celebs such as Brangelina, Catherine Zeta Jones and designers like Roberto Cavalli visit for short breaks and some of the world's most exclusive super-yachts are moored along the scenic harbour.

Hvar, Croatia

Hvar is truly in its element in the summer, with lush temperate waters, grapevines sprouting, vast lavender fields turning silvery-purple, and everywhere you turn you'll see flowers.

The getaway has experienced so many high profile visitors over the last few years, including the likes of Tom Cruise, Prince Harry and Beyoncé.

From the famous footage of the Harry jumping into a swimming pool incident at an outdoor nightclub in the town to images of Beyoncé revealing her baby bump at a Beach Club, the Croatian island is fast becoming where celebs are really letting their hair down.

Other visitors have included veteran designer Giorgio Armani and Roman Abramovich.

Punta Del Este, Uruguay

Apparently, keeping a summer home in Punta del Este is like owning a ultra private mansion in East Hampton.

As Rio's exclusivity wanes, the celebs are beginning to discover Punta's gorgeous beaches and seductive cycle of daily sunbathing and parties 'til all hours.

Party girl Paris Hilton, Rupert Everett, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and supermodel Natalia Vodianova have all experienced retreats on the Uruguayan peninsula.

Tavanipupu, South East Asia

Tavanipupu, South East Asia

Set in heavenly surrounds of unspoiled beauty and divine views, diving in the reefs of the crystal clear waters is a thrill for spotting untouched rainbow-coloured corals and fish of the tropical variety.

Tavanipupu is renowned for its endless opportunities to dive in the deep, blue lagoons with turtles and It's just one of the many adventures to explore on a trip to South East Asia.

As a privately owned five-star island complete with pristine shores and white sands, the site is perfect for those who want to really switch off.

Wills and Kate stayed there during a state visit - just a taster of future celeb sightings.
