Springtime adventures

What a gorgeous time of year it is! Spring is the season of new beginnings, when days become longer, the weather warmer, buds unfold, animals awaken and all around us is a celebration of life and the promise of a fresh start.

Spring is for waking up to a delicious breakfast in bed on a bright morning.
It’s for getting out and into nature.
It’s for gentle hikes alongside meandering countryside streams with the scent of blossoms in the air.
It’s for comfy shoes and sun hats, warm breezes and cool drinks.
It’s for suntanning by the ocean, cocktails by the pool or sundowners by the mountains.
It’s for luxurious spa days and lazy afternoon strolls.
It’s for romantic beach walks, cool dips in the deep blue sea and fish braais under the stars.

Following are some of the best ways to celebrate the gorgeous change of season and experience our remarkable country in all its ‘blooming’ glory.

It’s Springtime! Emerge, escape and exhale … at our amazing resorts!

The Perfect Cure For Lockdown Blues!

Ever heard the saying, ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”?

Well it’s true! Sometimes we just need to get out and get away. That’s because there’s nothing better for renewing the body, mind and soul than a well-deserved holiday.
And after the year we’ve all been through, we could definitely use a break for some much-needed rest and relaxation…to recharge the soul, reconnect with family or recapture that spark in our relationship!

From a romantic ‘Wintery Retreat’ in the beautiful KZN midlands, to a sandy, sun-soaked, family beach holiday in Mossel Bay, to a luxurious KZN South Coast golf getaway where you can be pampered and spoiled, you owe it to yourself (and your family!) to get out, de-stress and have some fun!

Oh, and don’t worry – with our ‘Pristine Purpose Cleaned’ programme, we’ve transformed the resorts below into Covid Safe Zones. That’s because the only thing more important to us than providing the perfect holiday getaway, is your health and safety!
