Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are saying goodbye to paradise.

The newlyweds, who tied the knot in a private ceremony in the Hamptons in September, have been vacationing in the Maldives, a remote group of tropical islands in the Indian Ocean known for its coral reefs, luxury resorts and celebrity fans.

“Farewell to these beautiful atolls of peace,” Paltrow, 46, captioned a photo of herself and her husband standing on a boardwalk with massive villas complete with two-story waterslides in the background. The Goop founder hashtagged both the island nation and their five-star hotel, Soneva Jani.

The eco-resort is spread across five islets located in the middle of a lagoon in the Noonu Atoll, a ring-shaped island. In order to access the property, guests must take a 45-minute seaplane ride, a 60-minute speedboat ride, or a half-day cruise.

Jani’s 24 jaw-dropping overwater villas, located along a boardwalk reaching out into the ocean, include features like roof decks for star gazing, private infinity pools, gyms, steam rooms and saunas, and retractable roofs.

Doubles start at $3,085 per night, according to a 2017 feature inTravel + Leisure. A search on the hotel’s website for one night in January turns up results that range from $2,989 for a 1-bedroom retreat to $15,620 for a 4-bedroom villa with a water slide.

Paltrow also shared a photo of her and Falchuck, 47, making their way down one of the winding raised walkways barefoot and wishing her followers a Happy New Year.

“Walking into the new year with a lot of gratitude for all of the wonderful moments of 2019, lessons and joys alike,” she wrote. “Wishing each and every one of you a truly magnificent, happy 2019.”

While the resort offers 8 earth-friendly dining options, as well as a complementary chocolate room and an ice cream bar, Paltrow still found herself DIY-ing the couple’s cocktails, according to Falchuk.

“My wife doesn’t order a drink, she orders a bar,” the Emmy-nominated producer captioned a photo of a makeup-free Paltrow, shaker in hand, looking over a tray full of lemons, limes, fresh herbs, juices, and what appears to be a liquor bottle. He added the hashtag #goopyevenonvacation.

The lifestyle guru also posted two photos of herself enjoying the spectacular natural scenery in a white bikini. “Out of office,” she wrote on one shot showing her standing on the sand at sunset. Another, she captioned with a sun emoji.

The Maldives have been a favorite getaway for celebrities because of the privacy afforded by their remote location and selection of extremely luxurious resorts.

In 2017, the Beckham family vacationed there, staying at the One&Only Reethi Rah, where Russell Crowe, Rob Lowe and Tom Cruise have also reportedly checked in.

Prince William and Kate Middleton stayed in the islands for a week in 2014. DNCE frontman Joe Jonas and his fiancee, Sophie Turner, also retreated to the white sand beaches in February 2018. And Elizabeth Hurley visited in November.
