The royal couple, who tied the knot this past weekend in a lavish two days of ceremony and parties in Albert's principality, will be staying at the five-star Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, South Africa, the Daily Mail reports.

They will reportedly relax and celebrate their union in the hotel's $7,500-a-night President's Suite, which overlooks the Indian Ocean and includes two floors, an ornate gold-leafed bed, marble bath, terrace and a private swimming pool.

Their honeymoon will also have them attend an International Olympic Organizing Committee banquet that will be held in their honor at the hotel, a source tells the Daily Mail.

A member since 1985, Albert, 52, competed in five Winter Olympics as part off Monaco's bobsled team. And his bride, the former Charlene Wittstock, 33, is a swimming champion in South Africa who competed in the 2000 summer Olympics. She became a global ambassador for the Special Olympics last week.

The two met when the prince was in South Africa for an Olympic Committee meeting.

They were married in a private, civil ceremony on Friday and exchanged vows a second time a day later in a Roman-Catholic ceremony in the palace courtyard. A dinner for 450 people followed.
