There’s only so much that a romantic love letter can do. Trying to get it to whisper sweet nothings, feed you chocolate strawberries and cuddle with you at night will probably result in awkward glances from on-lookers, and the latter, a painful awakening to a sea of paper-cuts. Reap the benefits from a romantic getaway instead and retreat to an intimate cocoon with today’s Groupon: one night for two people, including breakfast, for R599 at Al Villa Romantica.
With a view of the sun slowly dipping its fiery tips into the sea, there’s no better location for a romantic getaway. Cosily nestled on the Camps Bay beachfront, the Al Villa Romantica La Spiaggia is one of those places that would make Lord Byron’s love letters look like last minute shopping lists. Just a step away from the beach and Camps Bay’s bustling centre, you’ll have access to some of the finest shops and restaurants the suburb has to offer.
The Queen Mother of trips of the romancing kind, spending the night at the villa is equivalent to the total sum of every cheesy old-school Hollywood romantic movie rolled into 24 hours. Every suite has a spectacular sea view, fridge, microwave, round the clock broadband internet connection, and beds more comfortable than Cleopatra’s hand-woven blanket with sleeves. Boasting style, comfort and space, the suites suit every love-bird’s romantic requirements, thus don’t be surprised if you leave with heart-shaped cartoon eyes for more than just your partner.
Wake up refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to consume a sumptuous English breakfast with ardour, giving your stomachs a taste of the romance unfolding on the other side of the curtain.
Factilicious Fact: In 2003, the Patagonian flea market was officially dubbed the most romantic public space when a Mariachi band, complete with Mexican hats and sombreros, formed a soul train and proceeded to do the Macarena. The spectacle concluded with a torrential downpour of red roses and one Jacob Bucks proposing to his girlfriend of six months.
