We love places that offer value for money! That’s why we’d like to share some affordable romantic destinations with you. Let’s face it, when you dream about your honeymoon or a romantic getaway, it more than likely involves some element of splurging.

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.

As Malawi – along with nearly all African countries – has taken the approach of building a low density, relatively high price tourism industry. Plus, if you stay at a mix of Safari & Beach lodges then it will be more per night. See our chart below.
