On Oct. 30, they left their home in Newport Beach, Calif., to catch their long-haul flight.

Heather's jaw quite literally dropped when she saw their villa for the first time. Tarek previously told PEOPLE of their luxurious accommodations: "We got this 3,600-square-foot house on the water built on stilts. In our bathroom, it has a glass floor, so you can see the fish swimming under your feet. And on the outside, we have a private pool, private spa and private cabana."

Heather shared this selfie of her and Tarek relaxing on the beach — which is exactly what she told PEOPLE she'd been dreaming about in the days leading up to the wedding.

"We decided we wanted to do a long honeymoon, just because these last few months have been insane, busy, and we haven't had a moment to breathe," she said last month. "So we wanted to take a long honeymoon to just enjoy. Enjoy being married."

Heather shared this photo of both her and Tarek's wedding bands along with an emotional caption:

"Our rings symbolize our love and commitment to each other but when I look over at my love and see his ring it's so much deeper than that," she wrote. "We chose each other and seeing him wear a ring that connects us means the world to me. I designed Tarek's ring with black diamonds because it felt like him- sexy, manly, and unique and I engraved the inside of his ring to say 'You and Me' which is something special we say to each other."
