In most movies, honeymoon suites are filled with furry walls and giant heart shaped beds with pink or purple satin sheets. If that’s your idea of a classy room then this Groupon isn’t for you. If however you prefer a chic and stylish sort of room then this is the deal for you: Book two nights for you and a partner in a luxurious Honeymoon suite at The Roundhouse Guesthouse for R1300.
Gansbaai is the capital of Great White Shark cage diving and land based whale watching and is also home to a luxurious Guesthouse called The Roundhouse Guesthouse. When not out watching for big fish, relax in your Caracharias suite back at the guesthouse. The room has its own private deck, jet spa bath, six-seater lounge suite, plasma screen television as well as surround sound. Throw in a spot of breakfast and you’ve got the key to your own large corner of luxury heaven.
This suite has been decorated with ultra-luxury and an African feel in mind with absolutely no velvet, satin or kitsch fur in sight. The screen can swivel up to 180 degrees so you can watch television from the lounge, the main bedroom and even from the bath. The lounge has comfortable seating for four to six people with great views of the ocean and the bay. The kitchenette unit in the lounge has a mini bar fridge, prep bowl, microwave, coffee and tea facilities as well as a full set of cutlery and crockery, bread board and toaster which will come in handy for the other meals – that’s if the hearty breakfasts don’t fill you.
When not sitting, standing, or jumping for joy on your own private deck, take in the views from the private balcony that stretches around the Roundhouse giving you the freedom to sit outside at sunset and watch the sun dip over the horizon. While the suite may not have a cheesy heart-shaped bed it does have dimmers so you can set the tone according to your personal cheesy preferences.
Guesthouse fact: Cellphones aren’t allowed in guesthouses in Ireland as the reception interferes with the brewing of famous Irish Coffee down in the pubs. When asked why the citizens of Ireland’s phones don’t interrupt the brewing process, the mayor of Ireland said “because people of Ireland have the power of the Leprechaun.”
