While everyone is focused on newlyweds Prince William and Princess Kate's impending trip to Southern California, another set of royals is planning a South African honeymoon. Monaco's Prince Albert and his bride-to-be, Charlene Wittstock, will celebrate their post-marital bliss at the Oyster Box Hotel, People reported.

The engaged couple will have a July 1-2 wedding and then make their way to the hotel, which is in Umhlanga Rocks, 20 minutes north of Durban.

Prince Albert, son of Prince Rainer III and starlet Grace Kelly, and Olympic swimmer Wittstock will likely stay in the hotel's presidential suite. The room spans two floors and has its own private elevator, two bedrooms, two marble bathrooms with views of the ocean, a study, a lounge, a dining room that seats 10 and a fully equipped kitchen.

The prez suite also has amenities like CD and DVD players; free wifi; heated towel rails; umbrellas, balls, bats and sunblock for the beach; and a flat-screen satellite TVs. But the best perk is the private pool, which surely swimmer Wittstock will love.

If you want to play prince or princess for a day, the presidential suite at the hotel goes for $7,500 a night.
