When I was able to easily book a table for Saturday night (14th February) at a well-known Constantia restuarant, it struck me that there must be many men (and ladies) who have not decided/bothered or thought of how they intend to spoil their special other this Valentine's Day.
If the middle reason resonated with you then I suggest you may need to go all out. Might I suggest over-nighting at Zorgvliet Spa
My wife and myself were treated to a weekend at Stellenbosch's Zorgvliet Spa
last year and it will remain stand-out special experience. Zorgvliet
is situated in the vineyards of Western Cape's winelands. Sure the suites are spacious and luxurious, each reportedly with it's own fireplace, superfluous for this time of the year but appreciated when we visited in the middle of winter and the views fantastic, but for me it was the a combination of the small gestures and the outstanding service that made the stay a special one. Being a small all-suite establishment we expected and received personal treatment from the helpful staff. There were little touches, a bottle of red from vineyards we overlooked, the customary chocolates each evening, chocolate fondue laid on our last night, the obligatory white gown and slippers that become your a part of your permanent attire for your stay, and did I mention this is a spa? Treat yourself to a, uh, treatment and you can be guaranteed to leave feeling special and relaxed.
Trust me this is a top-tip, a gift that is sure to score you some points with your lady/man and you get some personal pampering thrown into the deal. It's a win-win!
