Getting a regular soda when you really wanted diet, or taking a bite of a frosted donut and experiencing the crushing disappointment when you realise it isn’t the jam-filled one you were hoping for; expectation and reality usually get along as well as cats and bathwater. Today’s Groupon proves that reality is sometimes better than expectation; one night’s accommodation for up to two people in a deluxe suite at The Hyde, including a full buffet breakfast for R895.
Some days, that stack of dishes on the kitchen counter can start looking taller than it has any right to and the amount of laundry you need to do seems to totally defy logic. Whether you just want to spend a night away from your dust bunnies, or you need some alone-time with your special friend, the deluxe suite at Sea Point’s luxurious Hyde is the best way to call a time-out. A chic haven right in the tub-thumping heart of the Mothercity, The Hyde is the best kind of contradiction: more stylish than Louis Vuitton slingbacks and more comfortable than mom’s knitted jumper.
Spend the day with your Jimmy Choos up, loafing in front of the flat screen television, splash a few laps in the rooftop pool or party up a day-time storm in the surrounding city. If you’re taking some me-time, browse the blogosphere on the ADSL or the end of a busy day, what’s better than to come home to a spacious and luxurious double bedroom and hit the downy pillows hard. Sleep snug knowing you don’t have to worry about rapscallions keying your precious motorcar, which can sit-pretty in the safe undercover parking, just waiting for you to drag yourself away from the luxury of your suite.
Whether you’re the bright-and-early type or an alarm-clock smasher, a full-buffet breakfast is the ideal way to say sayonara to the high-life of The Hyde.
Wake-up Fact: After many complaints about the grating sound of alarm-clocks, The Doornail hotel in Southern California decided to use trained howler-monkeys to wake up their guests in the morning.
