The Garden Route Honeymoon admin
The Garden Route Honeymoon
Now this is a honeymoon for the couple wanting luxury, elegance, beauty and adventure. The Garden Route is the most beautiful offering from South Africa, and this honeymoon showcases the beauty perfectly. Spend 4 nights in beautiful Cape Town, 3 nights in Knsyna at the famous Turbine Hotel and Spa and 3 nights at the Shamwari Bayethe Safari lodge – because no South African trip is complete without going to the bush.
Step into the world of historic elegance and bohemian chic. Situated in the heart of Cape Town, the Cape Cadogan Hotel relives 19th century charm infused with contemporary panache. Their 13 spacious rooms feature all the necessities that have become synonymous with the More Families style and passion for creating guest experiences that leave lasting impressions. Their public areas comprise a comfortable lounge with an open fireplace, a garden and pool area, and a library where you can relax and read or use the computer terminal provided for your convenience.
The unique cosmopolitan experience of Cape Cadogan includes a wide variety of boutiques, restaurants and bars right on their doorstep. They are also located in close proximity of Table Mountain (10 minutes), the iconic Clifton beaches (15 minutes) and the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront (10 minutes).
Located on Thesen Island in the picturesque town of Knysna, the eco-friendly Turbine Hotel and Spa is steeped in legacy. Several years ago an ambitious project to transform the power station into a boutique hotel began; the result of which is breathtaking in its ‘industrial’ mystique. Given the heritage status of the power station, most of the primary components were left in position and now form an integral part of the theme of our hotel. With state-of-the-art accessories, the 24 bedrooms either have balconies or gardens.
The honeymoon suite is situated at the top of the hotel with superb views. Facilities at the hotel include three bars located in different positions with their own unique setting, two restaurants for sumptuous meals and a rim flow pool with a deck facing onto the canal. Most importantly the Amani Spa offers a wide variety of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments.
Shamwari Game Reserve is the largest private game reserves in the Eastern Cape. The warm African greeting of this tented paradise is “By-ye-ti” or, “I salute you”. Bayethe Tented Lodge is stone-walled and thatch-roofed with a large deck area overlooking a waterhole. The double volume lounge and dining area spills out onto the deck which is adjacent to the outside boma for traditional fireside dining under the stars. Further facilities include the Bush Relaxation Retreat, internet access and a gift boutique.
The nine luxury tents are camouflaged under trees allowing for ample privacy and unsurpassed comforts. Each tent is air-conditioned and heated and has an en-suite bathroom, shower, private plunge pool and viewing deck. The Bayethe Hill Superior Tents are the ultimate in tented luxury. These tents offer the additional luxuries of a fireplace, satellite television, plunge pool and hammocks suspended out of the wooden decks.
Your luxury accommodation includes breakfast, teas/coffees, evening canapés, ports and sherry.
