Gals, have you been thinking about what to get your loverrr this V Day? Or perhaps you feel like a serious spoil? Well – simply send this link to your significant other and drop a giant hint!
To celebrate Valentine’s Day Grootbos Private Nature Reserve has an all-inclusive special for loved up couples that’s valid for the whole of February, they’re calling it their Month of Love special. This intimate getaway is situated in the Cape Overberg, overlooking Walker Bay and in between Gansbaai and Stanford. It’s situated on the mountainside in a pristine nature reserve and features the ultimate in nature-inspired luxury: five-star gourmet spoils, flower safaris, walks, horseriding, beach time and did I mention the swanky spa?
Oh and the suites put the capital L into Luxe – they’re nestled in a Milkwood forest and offer every fancypants amenity you’d expect from a five-star escape. There’s Wifi and all of that stuff too – but you won’t be needing that!
I’d suggest you get up there early afternoon, check in, then hang by the pool and have a cocktail or two or if you’re feeling energetic, organise a horseriding trail, a beach walk or even a short hike – this part of the world is really beautiful and the walks are amazing. For their month-long special, Grootbos has included all of these activities as part of their offering so you’ll get the whole shebang if you choose to check in.
Later, why not have a spa treatment before your gourmet dinner and after dinner, since you don’t have to drive, you can always have another glass of bubbly on your private deck overlooking the sea and mountain. Oh, and your room for the night will have been prepared with a romantic turndown too.
The big thing about Grootbos is that they take their eco credentials seriously. They’ve won loads of awards and with their unique position in a beautiful reserve, this is your chance to get up close and personal with nature and forget about real life for a while.
The cost? You’re looking at R2100 per person sharing per night – that’s HALF their usual rate. Take into account it’s an award-winning five star private nature reserve, you’re getting an amazing five-course meal plus all the activities at no charge (and 50% off at the spa), this is a value for money serious spoil. Dinner for two of you at an equally sophisticated restaurant in town, plus taxi if you’ve had more than two drinks will set you back a fair amount (let’s not mention the babysitter if you need one). And that’s not including a gift. I’d say waking up at Grootbos with an uninterrupted view of Walker Bay is a first class gift of its own!
