Affordable & Romantic Honeymoon Lodges in South Africa – check out 8 lodges to love

Posted on February 20, 2020 by - Honeymoon, Lists and Top Tens

We love places that offer value for money! That’s why we’d like to share some affordable yet romantic honeymoon lodges in South Africa with you. Let’s face it, when you dream about your honeymoon or romantic getaway, more than likely it involves some element of splurging. But the cost attached to ‘luxury’ or ‘honeymoon’ can be daunting and exorbitant.

But not all romantic destinations are completely out of reach. So let’s take a closer look at some more affordable options for that dreamy escape. These are not exactly ”budget” but they do offer fantastic value for money in terms of what you get.

52 de Wet – Cape Town

This gorgeous boutique hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is a breath of fresh air. Quite literally. It is perched on the slopes of Signal Hill, which allows you to lap up the cool sea breeze and gaze at stunning ocean views. 52 de Wet’s spacious contemporary design and terraced setting will certainly tick that ‘luxury’ box.

But is it affordable? Considering it is situated in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Cape Town, we think this certainly is a well-priced option for a romantic stay.

Planning your Honeymoon? – Where to in South Africa

To some degree “best honeymoon destinations” in South Africa is a misnomer. Why should people want to go to a different sort of hotel or destination, just because they are on honeymoon? If lazing on a golden beach for more than an hour leaves you pacing up and down the sand, then a straight beach honeymoon is not going to cut it for you.

Unlike many other African or Indian Ocean destinations, there are many different types of honeymoons to enjoy in South Africa, and that’s what this post is all about…

South Africa Honeymoon Safaris – Sand & Safari

So as we’ve mentioned in our honeymoon pages, South Africa does lend itself to bush and beach honeymoons. Ppristine beaches can be combined with some truly romantic and top-class game reserves such as Phinda Rock Lodge or Thanda Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal.
