Trade Winter Gloom for Bottomless Luxury with our Scandalous Spring Special

Get your hands on this Super Spring Special during September every year and get sprung in style! The worst of winter is over and the reality of summer looms just the other side of a few sessions at the gym. Like all changes in life, the shifting of a season brings new beginnings and opportunities to do things differently. Why not get off to the right start with an inspiring escape to nature in the absolute comfort of luxury? Go on and admit it; you deserve it more than anybody!

For only R 4700.00 (per person per night sharing) you get all of the below and more:

  • Accommodation in one of the exquisite self-standing suites. 
    We’re talking double volume windows with a view to kill, fireplaces, a private lounge and balcony which according to the Seth Rotherham (the man behind  2OceansVibe) “arguably the sexiest [outdoor] shower in the Cape”.
  • Three gourmet meals a day.
    It starts with a buffet of delicacies and a hot English breakfast selection and ends with a six-course gourmet taste sensation for dinner. The eggs and greens are all organically produced on the premises and everything else is met with a standard that would satisfy Gordon Ramsey. 
  • Land-based whale watching.
    To be enjoyed with a glass of bubbly on a private balcony.
  • Exclusive boat-based whale watching.
    Getting you close enough to touch the gentle giants of the ocean to claim that one-of-a-kind encounter with nature. 
  • Guided 4x4 Flower Safaris.
    Currently in full bloom the guides have a keen eye for pointing out the intricate beauty of fynbos and the mind-blowing facts about the Cape Floral Kingdom, which has three times the floral diversity of the Amazon Jungle!
  • And an additional mix of enticing activities to chose from, free of charge:
    Horse riding, hikes, a picnic on the beach, a cave & coastal tour, bird watching, milkwood forest missions, and…well, you get the picture.
