The fronds of the 2,000 palm trees rooted on the grounds of the Costa Meloneras Resort seemed to wave a greeting to lovebirds Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr upon their arrival recently. If not for the swarm of paparazzi buzzing about, the couple could have bronzed their bodies by one of the hotel’s four pools or opted to use the sanctuary’s nudist solarium for an all-over tan, just one of the many amenities offered to guests at the hotel. Patrons can also wile away the hours with a game of tennis on one of four quartz sand courts, enjoy a romantic repast at one of three restaurants or realign their chakras with a transcendental treatment in the lava dome relaxation room of the Gran Spa Corallium. According to El Mundo, however, prying eyes of journalists persuaded the movie idol to switch hotels. The couple were later spotted soaking up the sun at the Hotel Gran Residencia.
The trip to Gran Canaria is just the latest for the frequent fliers, who were spotted in Sydney, Australia in late April. Meeting the mesmerizing model’s parents for the first time, the Pirates of the Caribbean star found himself mulling over the menu at Catalina, a seafood restaurant which offers food for the body as well as for the soul with its view of the tranquil waters of Sydney Harbour.
