Happy 2022

2022 is all about twos for us: twice the fun, twice the love, and twice the number of vacays as we head back out into the world.

The last two years have been difficult: we’ve discovered new variants, adjusted to working from home, and found ways to exist within the new normal. But the world is finally opening up again, and it’s time to take advantage of all the wonders that South Africa has to offer. We have a clean slate and a fresh start, so let’s start getting ready to make your 2022 one for the ages.

Let’s celebrate the most magical season of the year together!

We’re so glad to be sharing peace and harmony with you as we end off another remarkable year together.

2021 was filled with highs, lows, challenges, triumphs, worries, and more… but, we’ve gotten through it. No matter the trials that come, we are stronger together, and this year has proved that. We are so grateful to you, our First Group family, for being a part of this journey with us. So, in that same spirit, as we look ahead to 2022, we are filled with excitement: a new year, a fresh start, and the promise of the unexpected – let’s make it one for the ages, with plenty of vacays!

Christmas and New Year are a time for family, with good food, warm days, and plenty of R&R. Of course, the best place to do that is at one of our resorts, where you can unwind in unmatched bliss

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!
