Some of us would love to escape on a winter sun holiday, and some of us already have. Ronan Keating and girlfriend Storm Uechtritz have shared plenty of snaps of their wonderful New Year break in the paradisiacal Maldives – complete with pristine coral reefs and breathtaking Indian Ocean sea-views – that are enough to make the best of us green with envy.
And the former Boyzone star and current X Factor Australia judge didn't hold back on giving fans a glimpse into their idyllic retreat. Ronan, 36, posted a snap of the pair standing arm in arm, seemingly standing on the Indian Ocean. "Yes!!!!! @StormUechtritz can walk on Water. Greetings from the #ViceroyMaldives," he captioned it.
Wearing a pair of blue swimming shorts, Ronan shows off his toned torso while 32-year-old Storm reveals her incredible beach body in a skimpy red bikini.
The pair are beaming from ear-to-ear – understandable given they have been residing at the luxury five-star Viceroy Resort and Spa since their arrival on Friday night – where rooms average around $1,000 a night.
More shots show off the resort – which boasts exclusive beachfront and water villas complete with private pools, ensuite baths and idyllic outdoor areas – in all its glamour. A photograph of Ronan and Storm shows the couple lounging on a bed in the sun, secluded by bamboo sticks. Dressed in casual holiday gear, Ronan looks relaxed in a turquoise t-shirt and blue shorts as he holds his Aviator shades, and Storm looks lovely in a blue top and yellow shorts, a colourful necklace adding another pop of colour, and pretty t-strap sandals.
"Greetings from the #ViceroyMaldives #Perfection #Paradise" wrote Storm on Instagram alongside the pic.
A breathtaking shot of the resort's pool reveals where the couple have been unwinding for the last few days. "Every day just gets better #nofilter #incredible" the model and TV producer posted.
The active pair haven't only been relaxing. Photographs show the dad of three – to Jack, 14, Missy, 12, and eight-year-old Ali from his previous marriage to Yvonne Connolly – enjoyed some fishing as well as underwater fun in the sun.
Alongside a picture of Ronan with flippers and snorkel in hand, Storm wrote: "Now that he's gone all PADI on us, I can't keep him out of the water haha #hottie #mybaba @rokeating."
