After a whirlwind wedding and the Oscars, Benedict Cumberbatch and his new wife, Sophie Hunter, have finally found some downtime to properly honeymoon!

An eyewitness tells E! News that the Oscar nominee and his pregnant wife are on a 10-day honeymoon at a five-star resort in Bora Bora. But as soon as they got to the island, Benedict immediately put on his tourist hat (we're assuming he left his Sherlock one behind)!

"Benedict looked so excited to be there and was snapping pictures with his camera," the eyewitness tells us. "They were given pineapple-infused water and beautiful flower leis that they immediately put around their necks and smelled the fresh flowers."

Sounds amazing! The amenities don't stop there, of course. The source adds that the "first-class service" has everything they could possibly need delivered to their water bungalow in order to let them relax in private. In fact, they even had door-to-door service with a boat "dropping them right off at the deck of their water bungalow" from the airport.

"From the time they arrived, they rarely left their bungalow," the eyewitness adds, noting that they arrived to Tahiti on Feb. 24. "Benedict had his arm around Sophie and was in awe of the beautiful water and their surroundings."

Because Sophie is expecting a little Cumberbun, she was able to "put her feet up" while her The Imitation Game-starring husband enjoyed swimming with the fish!

"They lounged around on their deck everyday and went swimming in the clear water. They had breakfast on the deck in the morning and it lasted for hours," the source tells us. "Then they napped on side by side on their chaise lounges. Benedict went snorkeling whenever he could and Sophie relaxed and put her feet up. She is well into her pregnancy and looked happy to have down time."

This sounds like the vacation right out of our dreams. Although relaxing on a tropical island, the A-list duo did experience one day of rain, but they handled the dreary weather in the best way possible: massages in their room! These two really know how to make lemonade out of lemons.

"They really seemed in love and like perfect partners. He was doting on her and rubbing her back and her pregnant belly," the eyewitness adds. "She was making sure he had sunscreen on and always re-applying it on his back. They had a lot of time alone and really enjoyed the slow pace of life and not having to do much."
