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!
