Prepare to feel some wanderlust: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have returned home after enjoying a family vacation in paradise, and we've got the inside scoop on their luxurious stay.

The Cravings cookbook author, 35, and the EGOT winner, 42, recently took their two kids, daughter Luna, 5, and son Miles, 2, as well as Teigen's mom, Vilailuck "Pepper," on a trip to the Maldives, a remote group of islands in the Indian Ocean known for its coral reefs, pristine resorts and celebrity fans.

The famous family stayed at the exclusive Soneva Jani Resort, PEOPLE can confirm, a five-star favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk (who honeymooned there), Millie Bobby Brown and more.

The eco-resort is spread across five islets located in the middle of a lagoon in the Noonu Atoll, a ring-shaped island. In order to access the property, guests must take a 45-minute seaplane ride, a 60-minute speedboat ride, or a half-day cruise.

Jani's 24 jaw-dropping overwater villas, located along a boardwalk reaching out into the ocean, include features like roof decks for stargazing, private infinity pools, gyms, steam rooms and saunas, and retractable roofs.

The Soneva Fushi, another resort from the brand in the Maldives, is also popular with stars — Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner honeymooned there!

They also shared that they celebrated two special occasions on the trip: Luna's fifth birthday and the launch of Teigen's mom's new cookbook, Pepper Thai Cookbook.

To celebrate Luna, Teigen wrote that the family participated in a "scavenger hunt all through the island to get to ZOMBIESSSSS - her dream birthday!" She shared several photos of her daughter in a ruffled lavender dress finding clues on flower vases.

When it was time to celebrate Pepper's cookbook, the family strung a sign across the villa that read "Congratulations," along with dozens of printed-out photos of Pepper and the family.
