We love LOVE and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner we caught up with the experts (otherwise known as our General Managers) to hear their top tips for creating the most romantic of stays.
Vincent & Emma – General Manager’s at Kasbah Tamadot, Morocco
*Fun Fact – Vincent & Emma enjoyed a champagne-fuelled date, climbing the famous Mount Toubkal to raise money for EBF charity*
Kasbah Tamadot is the ultimate romantic retreat, as soon as you arrive you are greeted with the scene of red roses in the Reflecting Pool, whilst the mountain views and gardens all provide the dreamiest of settings.
February is a great time of the year to visit Morocco (the average temperature is 20⁰C), and as it’s not too hot we highly recommend taking a couples trek, you can either follow the map we provide or we can organise a guide. Trust us, the panoramic views from Toubkal National Park as simply breath-taking!
We all know that food is the way to the heart, so get hands-on and brush up on your culinary skills at one of our cooking classes.
Another must-do is pre-dinner cocktails on the rooftop terrace, if it’s a clear night there’s nothing better than sitting underneath the stars with a drink in hand, before sitting down to a candlelit dinner in Kanoun Restaurant.
For couples, we have created a Romance Offer which includes a traditional Couples Hammam, a welcome bottle of Champagne and a private dining experience for two.
Karl & Llane – General Manager’s at Ulusaba, South Africa
*Fun Fact – They married barefoot at sunrise in a dry river bed in the Kruger National Park and were one of the first public weddings ever hosted there!*
Love is all around at Ulusaba and we see it every day, and not just from our human guests! The animals who roam the Sabi Sand Reserve are often spotted cuddling each other (as well as the odd fight from time to time)!
At Ulusaba there’s plenty for couples to do, we can arrange a picnic in the bush, a private dinner in the Wine Room or simply soak up the views from the comfort of your room and we’ll deliver dinner straight to your door! For an out-of-this-world evening, it doesn’t get much more dreamy than a private stargazing dinner at our observatory in the bush, our rangers can even teach you about the constellations that can be seen
For something a little more indulgent we highly recommend a couple’s massage in the Aroma Boma spa or a romantic bath experience, both are a must!
Make a date with the big five at Ulusaba with our romance offer.
