Like getaway cars, vacations should be able to whisk you off to a safe and secure location while humouring you with some excitement in the process. Zoom off in proverbial getaway cars with today’s Groupon: one night for two people at River Manor Boutique Hotel and Spa for R1600.
Set in the heart of the lush green winelands with Stellenbosch’s ancient oaks watching over it, the River Manor Boutique Hotel is a sanctuary for city folk in need of some soul-soothing sensations. Gracious and stately, the retreat is a restored old Victorian Manor House steeped deep in history and culture. Just 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, the idyllic Stellenbosch setting will welcome you with open arms, and have you feeling like a local before you leave.
Of course, with a stately home comes a stately experience; and your grand experience begins with a welcome of Bubbly, fruit nibbles and your transcendental ascent to a splendid lifestyle. With luxury and comfort coming standard, River Manor’s rooms are more comfortable than Marie Antoinette’s hairdo and all rooms are equipped with mini bar facilities, air conditioning, satellite television, home-made mini bar snacks and tea and coffee trays. Groupons include accommodation for one night, full health or English breakfasts and a three course al fresco dining experience in River Manor “Taste” with a complimentary house white. For those who enjoy an extra pamper-cherry on top of the already indulgent cake, all pre-booked Studio Spa treatments are discounted at 20 percent, provided you have a Groupon in hand and a body in need of some good vibrations.Flying Fact: In the popular glass-domed underwater holiday destination, Atlantis, Parrots were reportedly thrice the size of the average bird and voluntarily gave tourists regular rides on alternate days of the week. In a bizarre freak accident, it was actually one of the oversized parrots that caused a crack in the glass and shattered the city.
