February has arrived and so has Cupid, so in celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together a little something special for the lovebirds. 

If you want to do something romantic for your partner, why not go on a romantic getaway? It’s the perfect way to connect, have fun and keep the spark alive. 

Here are some beautiful and romantic getaways that you’ll be sure to love, and the best part is that they’re under R1000!

Shangri-La Country Hotel, Limpopo
Cost: from R750 per night*

The Shangri-La Country Hotel is a tranquil, secluded hideaway nestled against the Waterberg Mountains in Limpopo and lush tropical gardens surround the luxury rooms. The rooms are furnished with charming African artwork, so expect to fall in love with the aesthetics. 

The Boathouse, Western Cape
Cost: R800 per night.

This is the ideal place to go if you want a quiet place that’s close to the riverside. It’s a 20-hectare farm with 600 metres of river frontage and you share the farm with just three houses – so there’s plenty of space for privacy or outdoor fun. During the night, it’s lit with paraffin lanterns and candles to give the house a romantic ambience.

The Elegant Lodge, Gauteng
Cost: From R750 per night*

Situated in the heart of Pretoria, the Elegant Lodge in Menlo Park is perfect for couples that need a getaway but don’t want to leave the city. It is beautifully decorated with luxuriously furnished interior and it offers a variety of services to cater for your individual needs. The rooms are comfortable and contain individual climate controls, a TV and coffee/tea making facilities.

Gelukkie, Western Cape
Cost: R900 per night

This is a getaway suitable for couples looking to experience the beauty of nature as opposed to looking for luxury. The cottages are spacious, private and each have their own landscaped garden. 

Buckleigh Guest House, Durban
Cost: From 650 a night*

The Buckleigh Guest House is in the plush upmarket suburb of Durban North and the B&B rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, thermal air conditioning and much more. There are braai facilities and a swimming pool, so that you can have a fun outdoor experience at your home away from home. 

A romantic getaway means there might be driving involved, so make sure that you’re up-to-date with your car insurance premiums. This way, you can drive with ease knowing that your car is covered for any unforeseen circumstances.
