Fall in love with Africa this Valentine’s Day

5th February 2020

Couples looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a unique getaway can surprise their loved one with an unforgettable break from a selection of romantic offers from Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson’s private collection of unique hotels and retreats.

Located in a hidden corner of Morocco's High Atlas Mountains, Kasbah Tamadot is the perfect place for loved ones to enjoy a relaxing and intimate escape; from a bottle of bubbles on arrival, complimentary room upgrade, to an indulgent 60 minute spa treatment per person and three course dinners throughout. For the ultimate date night, Kasbah Tamadot will pull out all the stops with a private dinner for two in one of its most romantic locations. All of this, including accommodation, breakfast and mini bar treats starts from MAD 29,100 (at today’s current exchange rate - £2,306), per couple for a three-night stay.

If a wild safari adventure is likely to get a loved one’s heart racing, then Mahali Mzuri, set in the heart of the Kenyan Maasai Mara, with exhilarating game drives along with gourmet meals, fine wines and pampering could be just the thing. During a stay, guests will be whisked away to a secluded location for a romantic picnic lunch and as dusk falls on the final night, the team will take guests to a secluded location in the bush to share an intimate dinner, lit only by lanterns and the stars. Following dinner, guests can look forward to a romantic turn down with rose petals, bubble bath, sparkling wine and a cosy corner on the deck - perfect for stargazing. Rates are priced in US dollars and start from US$5,325 (at today’s current exchange rate - £4,075) for a three-night stay per couple and includes accommodation, twice-daily game drives, mini-bar refreshed daily and all meals and drinks.

Or, why not make a date with the big five at Ulusaba private game reserve. With only 20 rooms and suites split over two lodges, finding some time alone together won’t be a problem. Guests will enjoy spectacular game viewing, one-on-one dining, including a lovers’ picnic and a private meal for two under the stars at the Bush Observatory - as well as a few extra treats. Guests will also be treated to a couples’ spa treatment with an Aroma Boma (60-minutes) full body massage for two and a romantic bath time experience with a special turndown service and plenty of champagne on ice. Rates are priced in South African Rand and start from ZAR 75,114 (at today’s current exchange rate - £3,949) per couple for a three-night stay, which again includes accommodation, twice-daily game drives, mini-bar refreshed daily and all meals and drinks.

What could be more romantic than an escape to a corner of Franschhoek known as the gourmet food capital of South Africa with the best views of the valley and a great red wine to match. If wining and dining is more enticing, then look no further than Mont Rochelle hotel and vineyard. Situated in a picturesque location at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg Mountains, offering relaxation paired with superb culinary experiences and outstanding wines; it is the ideal spot for a lovers’ retreat. From bubbles, a complimentary room upgrade on arrival, wine tasting, a romantic picnic in the beautiful surrounds and an indulgent Cape Malay Spice Journey spa treatment for two (75 minutes), every last detail has been thought of, including some extra surprises throughout the stay. Rates are priced in South African Rand and start from ZAR 18,705 (at today’s current exchange rate - £983.00 per couple, for a three-night stay, including daily breakfast, complimentary mini bar treats and a lunch or picnic for two.
