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!

LAVISH YOUR LADY WITH THAT LUXURY LIFE

August is Women’s Month! And so we celebrate the strength and resilience of women and their remarkable contribution to society and country.
Yes, it has huge historical and social significance. But … it’s also a marvellous excuse to spoil our better halves, right?
This month, we get to pay tribute to the incredible woman in our life and acknowledge that everything we are is because of her!
So, for the ultimate Women’s Month indulgence (and maximum ‘brownie points’!), lavish your lovely lady with a luxury getaway at one of our amazing resorts.

Warm and Safe in the Western Cape

Oh, baby, it really is cold outside! And if the midwinter blues are bumming you out, you need to reignite your zest for life while you wait for summer.

How about a sneaky little vacay? There’s nothing quite like a quick getaway to rest, recharge and revel in the glory of escaping everyday life … just for a while!
