Honeymoons


Exciting, Enchanting and Exclusive Escapes with

Africa Travel and Cleveland Collection Our two companies have years of experience helping couples plan their weddings, organise their honeymoons and renewing their vows. Whatever you choose whether it’s a simple wedding on a deserted beach, a grand affair in a glamorous safari lodge or pure romance in the foothills of the Himalayas, our team can advise and help organise it for you. While for that idyllic honeymoon the knowledge and experience of our honeymoon co-ordinators is second to none.

It is our job and our pleasure to help you choose the honeymoon of your dreams, one that fulfills – and hopefully exceeds – your expectations. If you’re looking for a deserted isle, a romantic break in a medieval castle or a gentle cruise through the South China Sea, our two companies can organize it – not to mention the upgrades, champagne welcome or candle-lit dinners that become almost part of the service.


Wedding Lists In response to requests and enquiries from relatives and friends of the happy couple, we have developed a fantastic flexible wedding gift concept which allows them to contribute to elements of your honeymoon. It could be a balloon ride over the temples of Angkor Wat, an elephant trek in the jungles of Thailand, a romantic dinner for two

on top of Table Mountain, or a sunset cruise in the Indian Ocean. With your travel consultant, decide what you would like on your list, let your friends and family know where your list is held...and then sit back and relax and let us organise every last detail.

Six Senses Laamu Cosy yet chic this eco-friendly hideaway is on the privately owned Olhuveli Island, in the southern part of the Maldivian archipelago. Remote, romantic and yet still in touch with the real world through internet access, and while a large section of the beach has been virtually untouched and the waters unswum, you are minutes away from a great surfing beach. Add to that a host of watersports and private boat trips to watch the sunsets and the dolphins and you are in a complete water wonderland. It has its own movie theatre on the beach while the spa’s treatment rooms are disguised as nests. You’ll love it...
