Romance in Nature

New love, old love, completely smitten, falling in love…no matter where you are in your relationship it is ALWAYS a good idea to have a romantic getaway. It is the perfect opportunity to connect, relax and enjoy intimate moments together. 

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is the ideal getaway for couples in the Western Cape because of its natural amorous qualities. There is an abundance of sweet smelling flowers, ancient forests, frolicking Southern right whales, aphrodisiac abalone, brilliantly-coloured birds and a backdrop of rugged mountains with a cool maritime breeze. The accommodation is designed for indulgence and intimacy as the luxury suites are spread out across the reserve and nestled beneath a forest canopy. Couples can relax in the chic lounge with the glow of the fireplace, soak up the view straight from the cushy four-poster bed, take a candlelit bath with the twinkling night sky as the backdrop and at sunset sip on sparkling wine on your private wooden deck. It feels like a love nest hidden in a secret location in South Africa, a complete escape from reality. 

The activities include an array of options that can completely relax or thrill. Choose between horseback riding (along a secluded beach or through the reserve), hiking, a 4x4 flower safari, shark cage diving, quad biking, having a picnic on the beach, bird watching and whale watching from land, by boat or on a panoramic flight. There is a spa embedded in the forest that offers a Full Body Couple’s Massage that promises to revive and pamper.

Destination Wedding

Grootbos has hosted many weddings over the years because of the unsurpassing beauty of the untouched natural environment. The newlyweds-to-be will be spoilt for choice as we can host fairy-tale weddings beneath the interlocking branches of a Milkwood Forest, amongst the alluring flowers of the fynbos, with the sand between your toes on a pristine beach or in one of our five-star lodges.  No matter the choice, the occasion will prove to be exceptional!

Honeymoon Specials

We have the ultimate honeymoon special for newlyweds for a romantic start to your life together. A honeymoon suite in Forest Lodge comes with your own infinity pool and a romantic turndown of petals and sparkling wine. Couples can relish the gourmet meals served three times a day, guided land-based activities and a dreamy picnic on the beach. 

Grootbos is close to Cape Town and it is the ultimate South African getaway for couples as the raw untamed beauty can be appreciated in luxury accommodation. Grootbos creates the setting and you just need to cherish the moments.
