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!

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!

So come out and play – you deserve it!

Winter Wanderlust

Travelling in Winter can be quite the experience. You can enjoy the flurries of snow in the berg, watch the rain crash onto the waves through frosted windows or simply enjoy a delicious mug of hot chocolate in front of a crackling warm fireplace. These make for the best of winter memoirs in your travel diaries!
There are so many amazing and exciting gems that are great for exploring during the winter season. We selected a few just to make your choices easier and adventurous.

Wanderlust – It’s time to warm to winter

It is un-Brrrrr-leviable how quick this year is going, we have chills just thinking about winter (which seems so far away in this hot weather… but winter is coming [ahem Game of Thrones fans]). And yes, winter can be fresh but there’s also so much more to it than just the weather – especially when travelling in South Africa. Now’s a great time to book a winter getaway – after all, the early bird gets the worm.
