There’s nothing worse than a romantic notion that doesn’t go to plan. What starts out as a planned candle-lit dinner with red wine, followed by a rose petal path leading to an aromatherapy massage can just as easily turn into a singed curtain, red-wine stained carpet and a trip to the vet because the cat ate the rose petals. Leave your romantic night in someone else’s hands with a one night’s stay for two people, including breakfast and a romantic meal and a bottle of boutique wine for R850 at Golden Feathers Lodge.
Whether your romantic nights turn into a disaster or not, today’s Groupon shouldn’t be missed. Set a stone’s throw away from UCT and Cape Town’s city centre, the Golden Feather lodge is a spacious and modern guest house with a team so dynamic they would make a space pirate seem boring. With an emphasis on quality and ambience, the lodge boasts a spacious guest lounge with luxurious yet comforting décor and Persian rugs adorning the meticulously tiled floors. You and your favourite can even enjoy a drink and meet other guests in their sumptuously cool cocktail lounge.
Just because you’ve already been wining doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about the dining; enjoy the candle-lit dinner you’ve been waiting for without setting alight curtains or accidentally poisoning domestic animals. Because Golden Feathers Lodge have more class than a First Lady’s wardrobe, they’re including a bottle of Stellenbosch’s finest boutique wine in the deal for you not to spill on the carpet.
To put the cherry on the sundae, each individual room is adorned with beautiful décor and en-suite bathrooms, and go far to prove that a room can be romantic without rose petals staining the covers. With a choice of double or twin bed rooms complete with a TV, air con and gorgeous views; you and your partner can enjoy your night in style before savouring a delicious continental breakfast in the dining room or on the outdoor patio.
For a night to remember that doesn’t begin to resemble a slapstick comedy; grab today’s Groupon and treat your love to a disaster-free dream date.
For facts sake: The hit song “The Photo Album Killer” is based on a real-life date that a woman was taken on. Lyrics like “I feel like I’m stuck in a room with no doors or windows” all refer to how much she hated the man, whom she later married.
