Are you looking for an exotic, adventure-filled honeymoon? Singita Sasakwa Lodge in Tanzania might be your perfect destination. The view from the lodge’s spacious veranda is worth the trip alone. The view is almost endless over the Serengeti plains below where the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest is known as the greatest natural spectacle on earth. Although you’ll be deep in the heart of nature, luxury will surround you at Singita Sasakwa Lodge. “A sense of grandeur is woven throughout the turn-of-the-century manor house and private cottages through a blend of authentic European style and East African influences.”

South Africa

Real Honeymoon |

I apologize for the lack of posts around here- things have been extra busy planning incredible honeymoons around the world, and working on some fun projects that I will be sharing soon!  Today I have an amazing honeymoon to share from a couple that recently went to South Africa.  Beach honeymoons aren’t for everyone, and South Africa was the perfect honeymoon destination for Han & Amanda! They loved the blend of chic city nightlife, relaxing day trips, and adventurous activities. They have so many beautiful pictures from their adventures!

Han & Amanda started their honeymoon in Cape Town, and enjoyed a day trip to Table Mountain

Penguins on Boulder Beach!

Next Han and Amanda headed off to Thornybush Private Game Reserve and stayed at Serondella Game Lodge.  This is a small game lodge with incredible service, and includes dawn and dusk safari drives every day.  Han and Amanda saw so many beautiful animals!

Cute baby zebra!

A beautiful kudu, which is a species of antelope

A lion, captured mid roar!

The highlight of their game drives was coming across this mother and baby rhinoceros enjoying a quiet morning walk. How adorable is that little guy?!

Thanks so much Han and Amanda for sharing your honeymoon!  Interested in going to South Africa for your honeymoon? Contact us!

 

 

Bon Voyage!

Cool Pools

Travel 101 |

With heat waves sweeping the country, taking a dip in one of these unique and exotic pools never sounded so good!

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

First up we have the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Take a break from the casino action and the Vegas-style shows of the Sands in the SkyPark Pool, the world’s largest infinity pool at over 650 feet in the air. The Marina Bay Sands is a perfect stop on your way to or from Bali.

Amangiri, Utah

Next, we have one a little closer to home. The Amangiri at Canyon Point, Utah features, as it’s centerpiece, a breathtaking pool that blends with the landscape of the desert. If you’re looking for a chlorine-free dip, the resort is located near Lake Powell and the Colorado River.

Fasano Las Piedras, Uruguay

This third pool had us doing a double take. Carved into the natural beauty of of Punta del Este, Uruguay, the pool at Fasano Las Piedras is the perfect way to unwind after a round at the resort’s Arnold Palmer designed golf course.

Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, South Africa

Not only does each ultra-luxurious, glass-fronted suite at  the Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge afford stunning views of the majestic flora and fauna of South Africa, they each feature a private plunge pool. There’s no better way to end a day of observing Lions, Elephants, Giraffes, and Rhinos than floating beneath the unadulterated, star-filled African sky.

Wildflower Hall, India

Lastly, we have a private plunge pool at the fairytale luxury resort Wildflower Hall at Shimla in the Himalayan Mountains. Bask in tranquility as you take in the awe inspiring beauty of the world’s highest mountains. The spa at the colonial era resort features the best of eastern and western holistic treatments to make this a truly tranquil sanctuary.

Overwater Bungalows

Destination Spotlight |

For today’s post, I am excited to show you some of my favorite overwater bungalows. There is truly no better way to experience relaxation and romance than spending time in an overwater bungalow in paradise. What makes them extra special is that they can’t be built just anywhere. Overwater bungalows can only be built in protected lagoons and reefs to shield them from waves and rough waters. Overwater bungalows have become a staple for resorts in French Polynesia, but there are other breathtaking options as well. So I am going to start with some of my current favorites, the One & Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives, the Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji, and Cayo Espanto in Belize. I’ll start with the luxurious One & Only Reethi Rah

One & Only Reethi Rah – Maldives

Here’s the Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji.  This is the only resort in Fiji that has overwater bungalows!

Snorkeling at your doorstep. Not too shabby…

And of course I had to include Cayo Espanto! This private island in Belize is truly a slice of heaven and is another place that has gone straight to the top of my “List of Places to Go.” Don’t you agree?!

Overwater Villa at Cayo Espanto. Tell me that is not amazing.
Talk about a view!

Take Me on A Safari

Destination Spotlight |

Recently, I have had a lot of couples wanting to go on a safari in South Africa and I have fallen in love. There is so much wildlife and natural beauty that words can hardly describe them! So today for our Destination Spotlight, I am so excited to feature the famous Kruger National Park.

Kruger National Park

Too often couples over look destinations without a sandy beach, thinking they won’t get the relaxation and seclusion they are looking for on their honeymoon.  With these properties couples are presented with the perfect combination of opulence and rustic charm. Kruger National Park is home to more mammal species than any other African game reserve and by being at these properties you are able to get up close and personal with the wonders of African beauty and wildlife.  You have to take a look for yourself at these places!

Not only are these properties encircled by some of the most natural beauty known to mankind, they are all perfectly situated to make the most of the land around them.  There’s hardly a place around each of these properties without a majestic view of some kind.
