Naomi Biden and her new husband Peter Neal enjoyed a romantic honeymoon soaking up the sun at a private tree-house villa in Seychelles that costs upwards of $3,000 a night. 

Fresh off of their White House wedding on November 19, the newlyweds jetted off to Mahé, the largest island in the archipelago in the Indian Ocean, where they stayed at the lavish Four Seasons Resort Seychelles. 

Billed as a ‘romantic hideaway set in a tropical paradise,’ the five-star resort’s guest rooms are all stand-alone villas that boast private pools and large sunken bathtubs.

Naomi, 28, and Peter, 25, both shared photos of their unforgettable getaway on Instagram, including their accommodations and view, though they never tagged their exact location.

The Columbia Law School graduate is the oldest grandchild of President Joe Biden, and it was her paternal grandmother, First Lady Jill Biden, who accidentally spilled the beans about their honeymoon destination just days after their wedding. 

Dr. Biden was at a ‘Friendsgiving’ event for troops at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina on November 21 when a hot mic caught her discussing the couple’s honeymoon plans, the New York Post reported. 

‘So, they went on a honeymoon … in the Seychelles,’ she was heard telling an unknown person. 

Naomi and Peter are believed to have stayed at the resort’s Hilltop Ocean-View Villa during their time in Mahé. 

The private hideaway boasts a sundeck and plunge pool that overlooks Petite Anse beach, which is located in a small bay on the western coast of the island.

The price of the Hilltop Ocean-View Villa ranges from $1,500 to $3,000, depending on the season. The room is one of the less expensive options at this particular Four Seasons location, where there are also suites and private residences with up to seven bedrooms. 

Naomi and Peter could have easily spent their entire honeymoon hidden away at the resort, which has an open-air spa, multiple dining options, a fitness center, beach facilities, and opportunities to sign up for cooking classes, water sports, and other excursions. 

The best times to visit Seychelles are said to be in April, May, October, and November. The more mild conditions during these months are ‘ideal for sunbathing, wildlife watching, and scuba diving,’ according to U.S. News & World Report.

Guests will also avoid the heavy tourist crowds that flock to the islands for the holidays in December and January and over summer vacation in July and August. 

Naomi gave a glimpse of their accommodations when she snapped a photo of her reflection in the glass doors leading out to the deck, and some commenters were quick to recognize it. 

Peter, who coyly tagged his location as the Indian Ocean, also posted a few snapshots of the view and his new wife at the stunning resort

She was dressed in a dark bikini and holding a towel as she struck a pose with the glistening water behind her. Another photo showed Peter relaxing in their pool as he took in the stunning view. 

The couple enjoyed a day of scuba diving during their getaway, and they both shared a sweet snapshot of themselves holding hands underwater. 

Peter, who coyly tagged his location as the Indian Ocean, also posted a few snapshots of the view and his new wife at the resort. 

He captured Naomi looking over her shoulder at him while standing one of the resort’s many terraces. She was dressed in a dark dress with pink and red flowers.

‘Screen time down sunburn up,’ he wrote in the caption. 

Naomi shared even fewer details in her post, which was captioned with nothing more than a honey pot emoji. It’s unclear how long the couple stayed on the island, which is roughly a 20-hour flight from D.C. 

Seychelles is a popular honeymoon destination for both royals and A-list stars. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton chose the tropical archipelago as the destination for their honeymoon in 2011. George and Amal Clooney also headed to Seychelles after they tied the knot in 2014.

Naomi and Peter’s trip to the tropical paradise came on the heels of their White House wedding on November 19.

The couple was surrounded by 250 family and friends when they exchanged vows on the South Lawn, both of them wearing Ralph Lauren on their big day.  

The bride stunned in an elegant gown that was inspired by Grace Kelly’s iconic wedding dress, while the groom looked dapper in a three-piece navy suit. 

It was the 19th wedding held at the White House and the first one on the South Lawn. Naomi was also the first presidential grandchild to be married at the historic residence. 

However, unlike other presidential family members whose White House weddings were open to the media, she opted to have a private affair without any photo or video coverage.

Instead, Naomi was featured in a surprise spread in Vogue, where she shared intimate details about the wedding.

There are multiple dining options at the resort, including ZEZ restaurant, where guests are served complimentary breakfast

The bride appeared on the cover of the magazine’s digital edition in her wedding dress, seated next to her grandmother, who had her arms lovingly wrapped around her. 

Naomi shared she and Peter would have had a backyard wedding even if her grandfather was not the president.

‘We’re so close to our families, so we always knew we’d get married in someone’s backyard,’ she told Vogue. ‘I think if my pop weren’t president, it would probably be their house in Wilmington or Peter’s family’s backyard in Jackson [Wyoming].’

Naomi was walked down the aisle by her father Hunter Biden and mother Kathleen Buhle, who divorced in 2017, to the Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony.’

Her sister Finnegan was her maid of honor while her sister Maisy and Peter’s sister Betsy served as bridesmaids. Peter’s best man was his brother Robert. 

Guests had to provide their Social Security number and date of birth for a Secret Service background check. Attendees were also COVID tested on Saturday morning.

The father of the bride was seated in the first row between his wife Melissa Cohen and his ex Kathleen, and he held his toddler son Beau on his lap. 

Natalie’s aunt, first daughter Ashley Biden, and her cousins Natalie and Hunter Jr. —the children of the late Beau Biden — were also in attendance.

After the 11 a.m. ceremony on the South Lawn that Saturday morning, the Bidens hosted a lunch for friends and family in the State Dining Room of the White House.

‘I do know she lost sleep over the fact that I was planning to serve turkey sandwiches at the lunch,’ Naomi told Vogue of her grandmother Jill, whom she calls ‘Nana.’

They added chicken pot pie to the menu, which is her dad Hunter’s favorite dish.

Friends came back to the White House on Saturday evening for a black-tie reception of dessert and dancing.

The bride changed into strapless silk Mikado Reem Acra gown that had her maternal grandmother Roberta Buhle’s pearls sewn into the six-foot train. 

Naomi and Peter climbed a ladder to cut a seven-foot-tall, eight-tier lemon cake with buttercream frosting.

The dessert bar also included an apple pie for the groom’s cake and President Biden’s favorite Graeter’s chocolate chip ice cream. 

She later slipped into a beaded fringed Markarian mini-dress for late-night dancing. 

Naomi was back from her honeymoon by the end of the month and attended the 100th National Christmas Tree Lighting with her family on Wednesday, November 30. 

The tradition dates back to 1923 when President Calvin Coolidge walked from the White House to the Ellipse to light a 48-foot fir tree decorated with 2,500 electric bulbs in red, white, and green, as a local choir and a quartet from the U.S. Marine Band performed.

The lighting ceremony has been carried out year after year — drawing thousands to Washington — with a few exceptions during times of war and national tragedy.

Peter wasn’t pictured with her, but it is possible that he sat elsewhere at the event.  

Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff joined the Bidens to watch some of the evening’s musical performance 

Naomi and Peter, who are both lawyers, moved into the White House when the lease ran out on their D.C. apartment. They and their mini Australian shepherd, Charlie, live on the third floor.

‘I try to remind myself it’s the White House, but it also gets normalized over time,’ she told Vogue of calling 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home.
