Whether newly-weds or long-term partners, there is nothing quite like a romantic trip away from home to recharge the magic.  Imagine beautiful scenery, luxurious and comfortable accommodation along with all the facilities a couple could need, whether in stunning Cape Town, the nearby lush and spectacular Cape Winelands or the gorgeous Drakensberg Mountains.

One spectacular location in Constantia, an upmarket suburb of Cape Town, offers everything a romantic couple could desire.  Along with beautiful accommodation, swimming pools and a natural garden, the property offers a romantic hot tub, offering a spectacular view.  This romantic couple enjoyed a stay at Constantia Vista recently and toasted each other with the best Cape wines, while gazing at the gorgeous view, all the way to False Bay.

Situated on a working vineyard is the Spier Hotel.  Nestled in the Spier Estate, this luxurious stay among the grape vines offers not only spectacular views, but also the best cuisine on offer in the area, all quaffed down with an excellent glass of wine, produced right there on the premises.

While enjoying a stay at the hotel, guests can appreciate the boutique Camelot Spa, a self-proclaimed “World of Wellness” offering great massages, relaxing therapies and a good soak in a relaxing hot tub to end a day of exploring the beauty of the area.

It’s time to head off to the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park in KwaZulu-Natal, with the most beautiful mountainous scenery, lush green valleys and amazing views. Declared a World Heritage Site back in 2000, the area offers much for the visitor including a rich collection of rock art, among the last visible signs of the San Peoples who used to make the Drakensberg Mountains their home.  Experts estimate there are 600 rock art sites in the area, which collectively offer 35,000 individual images.

The hotel offers an elegant dining room offering breakfast and dinner.  For those romantic couples visiting with their children, there is a separate dining area for them, offering toys, entertainment and friendship with other children staying at the hotel.  There are also babysitters available when needed.

There are many more wonderful destinations to be found in South Africa, waiting for guests to explore and enjoy the sheer romance.  Make a plan to visit, relax and enjoy.
