When the duke and duchess are away, where does the royal baby stay?!

Prince George is with Kate Middleton's parents, Carole and Michael, while she and Prince William are in the Maldives for what promises to be a romantic second-honeymoon-type getaway for the couple, who have now been married for two and a half years.

A source confirms to E! News that Kate and William, determined to keep a low profile during their stay, have rented out the Cheval Blanc Randheli resort on the Noonu Atoll, on the northwest of the Maldives archipelago. They touched down at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport Thursday on a British Airways flight and we hear that their stay will last three or four nights.

"People here are trying to respect their privacy," the source says.

And the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who will be bringing George with them to New Zealand and Australia next month, will have plenty of room to enjoy their adults-only alone time—and plenty of options to keep them occupied!

The Cheval Blanc is owned by the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy luxury conglomerate and a stay in one of the resort's airy private villas includes individual butler service and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. (Basically, would you prefer to be nestled next to lush gardens while overlooking the water or on stilts so that you feel as if you're floating over the ocean and can pretty much see infinity?)

Guests can enjoy yoga, a traditional hammam bath or massages and exclusively crafted skin treatments by Guerlain both solo and à deux at the in-house spa, which also boasts a hair salon, makeup studio and a barber shop.

There are seven restaurants and, of course, room service. And while not lying on the pristine white-sand beach, Will and Kate can make the most of that sparkling ocean with the various water activities offered, including scubadiving, snorkeling, big-game fishing and boating excursions to the nearby isle of Maakurandhoo. 

A team of what the resort refers to as Alchemists is also on hand to craft a personalized experience for every VIP guest.

And even if they choose not to budge once inch from their villa's private deck, it sounds as though the couple are going to at least return to the U.K. tan, relaxed and smiling.
