Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas enjoyed some relaxing time to themselves before heading into the busy holiday season.

Fresh off of their recent trip to India with their son Dylan, during which the Oscar-winning actor was honored with a Lifetime Achievement award at the 54th edition of the Goa Film Festival, the longtime couple escaped to a private beach getaway.

The two have been married since 2001 after meeting at the 1996 Deauville Film Festival in France, and together share son Dylan, 23, and daughter Carys, 20.

As the weekend, and their special vacation, came to a close, Catherine took to Instagram to share a breathtaking update with her fans.

The No Reservations actress posted a stunning photo to her Instagram Stories that captured a deep orange sunset she and Michael enjoyed from a beach in the Maldives, featuring a towering palm tree hanging overhead.

In it she shared: "Michael and I just had a few days here and it was bliss," adding: "Loaded up on books, films and self help podcasts," before joking: "Didn't need them," and that the trip was absolute "heaven" for the two.
