Romantic Weekend Getaways Western Cape

A collection of dreamy couple’s retreats in Cape Town and surrounds

Last Update: November 18, 2016

Whether you’ve been dating for two months or 20 years, a dreamy weekend away with your loved one is simply essential to really get those sparks flying and rekindle that connection. Plus, there’s just nothing nicer than the prospect of escaping to some tranquil retreat with a sweetheart for a few days to enjoy some quality ‘you and me’ time amidst stunning surrounds.

Of course, a storybook setting, plenty of privacy, a sumptuous king-size bed and, if you may, a lavish Victorian bath are all equally integral to this experience. And luckily, just beyond the Mother City there are plenty of enchanting places claiming such offerings. For lovers on the lookout for a fairy-tale vacation, we’ve rounded up some of the most magical romantic getaways in the Western Cape, from a luxury boutique guest house in Paternoster to a quaint, affordable cottage in the Winelands and a private lagoon villa near Hermanus.

ROMANTIC GETAWAYS WESTERN CAPE

Kennedy’s Beach Villa
A couple’s little private piece of paradise, this five-star boutique guest house, which rests on the edge of the Onrus lagoon, only minutes away from Hermanus, oozes elegance and romantic charm. The secluded property is base to two distinct, but equally idyllic, accommodation options, the Beach Suite and the Lagoon Villa, both of which flaunt luxurious Victorian baths and cloud - soft, queen - size beds. Overlooking the pristine beach, the first of the two, extends out onto a spacious sun deck, complete with a bubbling Jacuzzi (perfect for Champagne sunsets). And the latter, which is secretly tucked away in a gnarled milkwood grove, lays claim to a roaring fireplace and self - catering kitchen and boasts a private hammock and open-air milk bath, just below the trees’ curved boughs (those eager to enjoy milk and honey spa here, must pre-book). Lovebirds staying at the guest house can also opt to book for the honeymoon/anniversary package, which includes a sensual couple’s massage. Either way, a stay at Kennedy’s Beach Villa is bound to be one memorable, starry-eyed experience.
Rates: Accommodation ranges from R1880 - R2080, and includes a continental muesli basket for breakfast. No one-night stays are allowed over weekends.
