Romantic retreats to visit this Valentine's Day


f you’re wondering where to go, Premier Hotels & Resorts’ Group Marketing Manager, Christa Badenhorst, has some suggestions: 

Relax in the Garden Route

With the Garden Route being a haven for honeymooners, spending a few nights at Premier Resort The Moorings is a must as it allows visiting twosomes the opportunity to soak in all the natural beauty of this diverse region. Situated on the banks of the Knysna lagoon, the Resort’s serene setting, opulent room options and abundance of outdoor leisure activities such as swimming, boating and mountain biking are a recipe for romance and relaxation.

Explore the wild outside East London

Nothing says romance like a sunset game drive. Enjoy a blend of luxury and a wildlife experience on more than 3,500 hectares of conservation land at  Premier Resort Mpongo Private Game Reserve. Surrounded by lush, rolling hills and river valleys, the selection of private, river and bush lodges on offer are an ideal escape for amorous eco-tourists. The wildlife wonder even extends to the on-site eatery that overlooks a watering hole, enabling guests to enjoy traditional African fare while watching various animals frolicking in the water.

Admire nature in Nelspruit

Nature lovers are in for a treat when they stay at The Winkler Hotel in the quaint town of White River thanks to its centralised location enabling access to stunning sites such as God’s Window, the Kruger National Park, Bourke's Luck Potholes and Rocky Drift Nature Reserve. When not out and about, guests can enjoy romantic meals at the hotel’s Wakuja Restaurant, surrounded by magnificent African scenery.

Indulge in East London

Take treating your loved one to the next level with a stay at Premier Hotel East London ICC. In addition to being perfectly positioned for romantic evening strolls on the nearby Orient Pier, the luxurious hotel offers its very own on-site spa where couples can enjoy pampering treatments together.

Be daring in the Drakensberg

If you’re both into outdoor adventure, Sani Pass is the place for you. Surrounded by the Drakensberg Mountains, the Resort is perfectly positioned for 4X4 excursions up the Sani Pass, horse rides up the mountain to Lesotho, paragliding, hiking and mountain biking. Plus, there are an array of activities to enjoy on-site with couple’s spa massages topping the list of must-do’s.
