According to unreliable sources in popular culture – anything can happen in a hotel. Not only have hotels set the scene for romantic rendezvous and rowdy television-propelling rock stars, but they turned a working girl into a pretty woman and made a whole generation scared of shower curtains. Make sure nothing’s left to chance and shack up in a gorgeous guest house instead when you pay R1050 for a two-night weekend getaway for four people in a honeymoon suite OR R735 for a two-night mid-week getaway for two people in a standard room, both including breakfast at Villa Palmeira.
While some may spend their hotel nights eating all the peanuts from the mini bar or hurling continental pillows out the window, Villa Palmeira has enough charms to save you from falling upon the same old clichés. Effective as a luxurious home away from home, Villa Palmeira is a beautiful double-story thatched house with a stylish, clean and professional environment. Situated about 1.5km from the hot water springs and Forever Resorts’ warm baths, this gorgeous villa is also close to town; allowing for easy access to shops, restaurants and entertainment.
Whether you firmly follow the ‘two’s company’ rule or you prefer the ‘four’s a party’ plot, Villa Palmeira has suites to suit even the pickiest of perfectionists. The honeymoon suite boasts a pretty private balcony complete with a lounge and dining nook for magical meals. With an en-suite bathroom fit for a sumptuous sultan, you can enjoy a luxurious spa bath or a refreshing shower in one of the his/hers showers.
Those enjoying sweet slumber in the standard room can also enjoy a deliciously divine half-body massage in the comfort of their own room. Service with a smile, a delicious breakfast in the morning and the opportunity to lounge in Villa Palmeira’s tropical garden are all reasons to jump in the car and enjoy an escape to this picture-perfect paradise.Check in fact: The winner of the 2010 annual award for ‘best hotel prank’ was a bus boy named Garth who recreated the scene from the 1960’s Hitchcock film, Psycho, by sneaking up on a guest in the shower with a plastic knife and splattering the shower curtain with tomato paste and water that he had mixed in a cup.
