Whether it’s adopted puppy trouble or a smashed glass fight, the only thing that’s always expected on ‘Real Housewives’ is the unexpected. But there is one guarantee: a fabulous cast dream getaway every season.
One of the most glam was no doubt the Potomac cast’s trip to Portugal (though it was clearly too much work for the ladies to commit to memory that it’s a country not a city!) that aired in 2020, when they ate, played, and stayed at the 5-star Savoy Palace (@savoypalace) on Madeira island. The Housewives enjoyed the international cuisine with a view from the top of the hotel at Galáxia Skyfood, got pampered at Laurea Spa (which even has a Champagne and Nails Bar) and slept in suites with the Premium Experience (think Chopard amenities and a pool butler).
But the OG OC cast long perfected luxe vacation backdrops, like at their Canadian ski trip back in a 2013 episode when they stayed at the Four Seasons Resort & Residences Whistler (@fswhistler), where rooms come with mountain views and cozy fireplaces. Drama followed everywhere, as they went snowmobiling with @canadianwilderness01, felt the chill at @thebearfoot’s ice vodka room (that tongue scene!), and indulged in a dinner with a private chef back in one of the hotel’s Residences’ suite.
Two years later, the OC cast swapped snow for luxurious sun in Tahiti, staying at the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea (@sofitelmoorea) in the famed overwater bungalows (the largest on the island at 900 square feet!), which sit atop the preserved coral. It’s no wonder Tamra Judge’s first thought was, “Why not live free?” before skinny-dipping in the clear waters. Between a few too many shots (and questions about the male dancers’ wardrobe’s, ahem, fit!), the ladies also filmed in Le Jardin spa, an ode to the on-site plants, and dined at the end of the hotel’s pontoon.
