The Perfect Romantic Escape

Creating Magical Moments

Everybody’s idea of romance is different, but most people can agree on the most important elements: seclusion, natural beauty, and the opportunity to enjoy new experiences with your partner.

This makes the various properties within The Royal Portfolio ideal for a perfectly romantic stay during Valentine’s Month. While you have many options for ways to pass the time at each of them, in this blog we’ll be focusing on perhaps the most romantic possibilities at each one.

La Residence

Take a stroll through the vineyards, gardens and orchards around La Residence and find a shady spot to enjoy a picnic for two with a bottle of our estate wine. Lie back, watch the clouds drift by, and enjoy the views of the Cape Winelands and mountains.

Alternatively, head out to a nearby wine farm or village and discover new places to make memories together. Choose between a horse-riding excursion and a trip on our e-bikes, and you’ll be able to focus entirely on each other.

The Silo Hotel

Enjoy a romantic evening on The Silo Rooftop with your significant other. Treat yourselves… linger over the lights, savor the flavors, and dance to the music of Cape Town by night.

If you are feeling more adventurous, why not head down to the beach for a sunset picnic curated by our world-class concierge team, before returning to your iconic freestanding bath overlooking the city? A place to soak in the magical moments.

Royal Malewane

A couple’s treatment in one of the world-class spa spaces at Royal Malewane will help you forget the stresses and strains of daily life, and focus more on romance. Tap into ancient herbal wisdom and discover how relaxation can lead to romance.

Similarly, a guided bush walk will give you a fresh perspective on nature, and help you see some of the smaller details that contribute to the bigger picture of this remarkable ecosystem. In romance, as in the bushveld, it’s often the smallest things that are the most important – and this will help you appreciate them all the more.

Birkenhead House

A sunset stroll along Voëlklip Beach, or up the mountain towering over Birkenhead House, will help you forget that the rest of the world exists as you enjoy the perfect moment with your partner. Press pause as you watch the sky and sea change colour, and listen to the waves whispering on the sand.

Cooking a meal together is always a great bonding moment… especially when the ingredients include fresh mussels that you’ve foraged from the rocks below Birkenhead House. From a low tide search for molluscs to a high point of your romantic South African holiday: just add heat, lemon juice and the perfect wine pairing.
