5 Unique Honeymoon Experiences

You did it, you tied the knot – now it’s time to celebrate! There’s nothing better than starting a new chapter of your life with the one you love in one of the world’s most remote destinations. Whether you’re the kind of newlyweds who are looking for a honeymoon that takes you to your destination by seaplane, who want to experience a balloon ride above the rice fields of Bali, or who want to relax under the stars in Africa, the romantic possibilities are endless. Here is a list of 5 of the most unique honeymoon experiences from the JG Black Book Collection Members.


1. Azura Retreats

Over the years, Azura Retreats has spoiled many honeymooners with unique and memorable experiences. And one experience that always delights is the Baobab Bath at Azura Quilalea Private Island. This large copper bathtub, big enough for two, is filled with warm water and a generous helping of fluffy, foaming bubbles. Decorated with flowers, candles and a bottle of bubbly, what newlyweds could resist such an indulgence? At Azura Benguerra Island, an intimate beach picnic sets the tone for a heavenly honeymoon. With fresh seafood, a chilled glass of wine and the sand between your toes, it’s the perfect way to spend a romantic afternoon. If you opt for a honeymoon in the bush at Azura Selous Game Reserve, you can look forward to a dinner under the dazzling African sky outside your own tented villa. 



2. The Elewana Collection

The honeymoon is the most important romantic holiday of any couple’s life. That’s why Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar has created a special series of experiences that will help sculpt the perfect honeymoon for newlyweds during their time spent on the magical and historic spice island of Zanzibar. From the moment the newlyweds arrive at Kilindi, they will feel like the only couple staying on the island. From flowers and champagne to personalized menus at incomparable dining locations, newlyweds will feel the warmth and beauty of this inspirational hotel. A favorite of honeymoon guests is the romantic, candlelit dinner specially set up just for them on the soft white sands of the private beach at Elewana Kilindi. Honeymooners can indulge in sublime seafood that incorporates locally grown tropical produce, exotic island spices, and fresh seafood to create a fusion of delectable, internationally-inspired cuisine.


3. Bawah Reserve

This secluded haven is a romantic escape unlike any other and is the ultimate bucket list trip for all honeymooners.  Start the new nuptials off with an adventure – on a seaplane!
