If you and your future husband dream of taking a once-in-lifetime trip for your honeymoon, set your sights on Africa and the Middle East. Adventure seekers will love the possibility of exploring South Africa or experiencing Morocco's one-of-a-kind beauty. To help honeymooners plan their post-wedding getaway, the A-list travel experts at Virtuoso ranked the 10 best resorts in both regions.
African safaris are a huge draw these days; the Virtuoso agents who voted on this list tell us that it's a booming sector of the honeymoon industry. If you're one of those newlyweds interested in a sojourn on a savannah, we have good news for you: Half of the top 10 resorts are safari lodges.
Another trend: Dubai, with its iconic sailboat-shaped Burj Al Arab, is becoming the place to stop for a long layover while en route to a remote private-island destination like the Maldives or the Seychelles. Luckily, there are luxurious resorts everywhere you look, from a chic riverside lodge where you can watch elephants bathing through floor-to-ceiling windows to a sky-scraping high rise where every guest gets a "virtual concierge" in the form of a 24-karat gold iPad. Wherever you go, you'll have a totally unique experience.
