Woo your beau a better way and save 50% on a romantic package for two people, including dinner and the option to add one night of accommodation at Boulevard 44 Boutique Hotel.

An upmarket and decidedly glamorous retreat, you can find Boulevard 44 Boutique Hotel nestled in the rolling hills of Umhlali, along KwaZulu Natal’s sweeping North Coast. Renowned for their delightful cuisine and tranquil, elegant atmosphere, there’s no better place to be when you’re looking to woo a loved one right off their feet.
A three-course dinner in the privacy of your own room gives you an excuse to coo at each other over a starter of freshly baked rolls and a Greek salad or Prawn Cocktail, before tucking into one of three delicious mains including a Thai Green Coconut chicken curry. The curry is made with a scrumptious chicken breast which is marinated in fresh garlic, ginger and soya sauce before being flashed in palm oil and cooked in a creamy coconut curry sauce, topped with fresh coriander, and served with sticky basmati rice. For those seafood lovers, rather opt to enjoy every morsel of succulent grilled Line fish with lemon zest, on a bed of rocket mash topped with a lemon butter sauce and salsa verde or go for the green with a sumptuous Vegetable Paella. Finish off with fruit skewers with a honey glaze or vanilla ice cream with Bar One chocolate sauce and condiments.
With a bottle of champagne to accompany the culinary genius of your meal, both your taste buds and your cuddle-buddy are bound to be wooed. If just a meal isn’t enough, cap off the evening in your own room, with a romantic turndown service providing rose petals and candles to set the mood. Enjoy a Chef’s lovers platter in your room, including chocolates, sweets and other dessert-type foods, before snuggling down to enjoy the luxurious comfort, and in the morning, greet the new day in style with a sumptuously prepared breakfast.
