Below are just three of our top picks for romantic honeymoon accommodations in southern and eastern Africa:

Azura Boutique Hotel

A Dream day at Azura Hotel: Awake to the soft ebb and flow of the ocean before enjoying a breakfast of fresh fruit and pastries at the water’s edge. You start your day by relaxing on the beach with a cocktail and book before embarking on an exciting snorkeling safari at 2 Mile Reef. After a long day in the sun, it’s time for the spa, where you’ll relax with a couple’s massage with African body oils and butters.

The night ends with a romantic, candlelit dinner for two beneath the star-studded sky on the beach, where you enjoy freshly caught seafood, delectable wines, and Mozambique-inspired cuisine.
