With the Academy Awards only a day away, has revealed the top 10 Hollywood celebrity holiday hotspots.

Taking top spot, is St Lucia in the Caribbean.

Described by St Lucia Tourist Board as "the perfect haven for romance, adventure and home to some of nature's most precious natural beauties", the island attracts actors Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bruce Willis, Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson.

Coming in second on the list is the ever popular and gaudy Las Vegas, where travellers can expect to spot Hugh Hefner and Khloe Kardashian.

Third is party central Ibiza in Spain, popular with rapper P Diddy and fashion icon John Paul Gaultier.

Just over the border at Cote d'Azur, France, Australian model Miranda Kerr likes to chill, alongside songbirds Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

The fifth top destination is Paradise Island in the Bahamas, where Hollywood heavyweights John Travolta and Johnny Depp spend their free time.

Rounding out the top 10 best celeb holiday hotspots is the very snowy Gstaad in Switzerland; Fiji's private island resort Wakaya; timeless London; Aspen ski resort in Colorado; and Mexico's Cabo San Lucas.

Equipped with a wish-list of destinations,'s number one tip to travel like a star is to look the part.

"Travelling like a celebrity encompasses dressing like one too," says's Australia and NZ marketing director Katherine Birch.

"Although it's tempting to throw on your fat pants and slob about on the plane, try to dress with a star's wardrobe in mind. A black maxi dress, some simple sandals and bright accessories could make you more likely you'll get upgraded and whizzed to the front of the queue like your favourite Hollywood celeb."

Birch also reminds us not to forget about airline and hotel loyalty programs which will "help you live your champagne dreams on a lemonade budget".

Of course, adopting the attitude of a celebrity is required too.

"Beyonce and Rihanna seem to have a never-ending supply of holiday snaps to upload (online)," says Birch.

"If you're travelling like them you may as well tweet like them."
