Just like holding a loudly playing boombox is more likely to get you a restraining order than a declaration of undying love, things don’t work in real life like they do in the movies and not many people have a house in the Alps they can whisk their special friend away to whenever they feel like love is in the air. Indulge in a real romantic getaway with a two night stay for two people, including breakfast at President Lodge for R895.
People always say that the grass is a more greener shade of viridian on the other side of the white-pickets; relaxing on your own couch after a hard day’s work is nice, but for some reason, spending an evening or two at a hotel is just better. Whether you choose to spend your days touristing around scenic Edenvale or doing a few laps in the clear, blue waters of the hotel pool, your nights can be spent in the epitome of luxury. Eyeball pleasing décor combined with beds so comfortable you’ll use any excuse to stay between the sheets all day make the luxury rooms at President Lodge the ideal place for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of normal life.
In the morning, even if you feel that your sheets and duvet are arguing and you need to get between them to stop the fight, the tantalising lure of breakfast might be enough to lure you from the snug cocoon of your room. After a scrumptious breakfast and another day of seeing sights or just pillow-talking with your special friend, rejoice in the fact that you can spend another night as cosy as a cat in a basket full of laundry in the funky atmosphere of the jewel of Edenvale.
Roomy Fact: The world’s first hotel was nothing more than a caravan of covered wagons which travelled from town to town, offering villagers a different place to sleep rather than their own huts.
