With winter in full swing, Justin Trudeau whisked his family away for some fun in the sun over the new year’s break. The prime minster and his wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, treated their children -- eight-year-old Xavier, Ella, 6, and one-year-old Hadrien -- to a luxurious vacation on the Caribbean island of Nevis. The family stayed at Paradise Beach, a privately owned resort located on the west coast of the island.
The Trudeaus stayed in one of the property’s secluded beach villas, complete with private pool and full kitchen. They spent their days building sandcastles on the beach, paddle boarding and snorkelling in the pristine sea. During one evening, the Trudeau was spotted socializing at the hotel bar with acquaintances, including James Curleigh, Global president of Levi Strauss & Co.
As stunning as the resort is, Trudeau did venture outside the property to explore the 58-km volcanic island, which has been a favourite destination of celebrities such as Oprah and Michael Douglas. Princess Diana is also said to have spent time in Nevis. The 44-year-old politician enjoyed a meal at hot spot Sunshine's and even met the man who inspired the restaurant's famous Killer Bee cocktail. He was also spotted enjoying a hike through a rainforest and visiting the birthplace of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
Even though the Trudeaus freely roamed the property, security was very tight. Hotel staff did their best to kept the family's stay quiet, but the added guard presence around the resort peaked other guests' interest. A representative for Paradise Beach told Hello! that given the heightened security, one guest was convinced it was The Leftovers star and Jennifer Aniston's husband Justin Theroux who was causing all the commotion.
