Few people can boast that they've stayed at the very best hotel in the world—unless you're newlyweds Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney. For their honeymoon, the couple traveled to Nihi Sumba, which was named the number one hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure in both 2016 and 2017. After tying the knot with a star-studded celebration in Rhode Island, the Oscar-winning actress and the art dealer escaped to Indonesia's tropical paradise for a postnuptial trip.

You may be wondering what amenities a resort named best in the world boasts—what makes it such a sought-after destination? Nihi Sumba, located on a remote island, is known for its luxurious villa accommodations and excellent surf, People notes. While the resort offers 33 villas set on 530 private acres, Lawrence and Maroney stayed in even more exclusive lodgings: Mendaka, the private home of the resort's owner, housed the newlyweds during their stay.

As for honeymoon-worthy amenities and activities, Nihi Sumba offers al fresco massages in a bamboo pavilion perched above the ocean, reports the outlet. Guests of the hotel can also arrange excursions to surf, fish, kayak, spearfish, and snorkel. During their time on the island, it is reported that Lawrence and Maroney went horseback riding and visited the nearby Sumbanese villages.

The couple's relaxing honeymoon was certainly well deserved. Fans of the famous duo will recall that their wedding was an action-packed affair with a celebrity-filled guest list. "It was an all-night party. Jen and Cooke were the last people to leave at 5:30 a.m.," another People source revealed. "They waited until all the guests were gone so they could personally say goodbye. When they left, Jen looked happy, but also a bit tired. She also looked stunning in a jeweled dress."
