With so many extraordinary destinations dotted all over the world, it can be tough to choose which one to visit for your honeymoon. Understandably, you want it to be a once in a lifetime experience, full of special memories that you can treasure forever as a couple.
So, when deciding on where to visit for your honeymoon, look no further than Mozambique, a country renowned for its luxury resorts and unspoilt, pristine beaches which edge the Indian Ocean. You’ll be in for a truly once in a lifetime honeymoon that you’ll never ever forget!
Imagine an unspoilt island within a pristine Marine National Park. Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand. Sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhow boats plying their trade. Swaying palms, gentle breezes, sunny days and star studded nights. Built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, Azura Benguerra has just 20 spacious ’beach-chic’ designer villas, each with their own private pool stretching out to the Indian Ocean beyond. They offer the discerning honeymooners every comfort, with handcrafted king size beds, feature bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, air-conditioning, daybeds, lounging decks and salas right on the beach. Activities on offer include scuba diving, sunset cruises, beach walks with a picnic and star gazing events. There's also a world class spa, which overlooks the beach and offers rarely seen views of the island. For the ultimate honeymoon experience, book the Presidential Villa, a three bedroom retreat which comes with its own beachfront location for complete seclusion and privacy.
As you fly by helicopter to &Beyond Benguerra Island looking out over the blue ocean and the beach fringed islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago you know you are travelling to somewhere very special. The luxurious lodge has just 12 rooms and a three bedroom villa, all of which are close to the beach and feature private decks with plunge pools. The style throughout is light and tropical with designs reflecting both Africa and Mozambique's Portuguese heritage. For the active honeymooners, there are a variety of activities on offer including scuba diving, sea kayaking, horse riding and fishing. There's also a massage sala and beach bar for those honeymooners looking to kick back, relax and forget about the outside world. However, for the ultimate romantic experience, why not enjoy a cruise on a traditional wooden sailing vessel known as a dhow. A local skipper will fetch you in the late afternoon from the island and will sail you around the calm waters of the bay as the sun sets over the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago.
Paradise Lost can be found on the Mozambique shoreline of Lake Malawi, at Nkwichi Lodge. Very remote and far from anywhere, accommodation consists of just six rustic but luxury chalets and two private houses. Each of the individually designed chalets is rustic but luxurious and is protected and hidden by trees. All of the chalets and houses come with their own private cove, verandah, outdoor bathtub, sometimes carved from the rock, and a huge four-poster bed made from ancient tree trunks. Honeymooners really are spoilt for choice when it comes to activities designed specifically for them to enjoy. For the ultimate romantic experience, why not spend the night under the stars on your own private rock island or enjoy a romantic dinner on a secluded beach (guests are able to choose their own location for dinner).
A romantic island retreat, this gem is just one kilometre long (a circular walk of the island is possible in just half an hour) and is surrounded by perfect white sand and clear turquoise seas. At Anantara Medjumbe Private Island the accommodation at this adults only hideaway is in elegantly proportioned chalets strung out along the beach, each with its own large deck, outdoor shower and private plunge pool. Activities on offer include snorkelling, water skiing and kayaking. There's also a luxury beachfront spa and restaurant with extraordinary views of the Indian Ocean. For the ultimate honeymoon experience, take a sunset cruise aboard a traditional dhow or enjoy a romantic picnic for two on the ultra-private Quissanga Island. You'll never want to leave this idyllic island paradise!
