A luxury Cape Town Valentine’s Day
Flowers and a card are all very well, but if you are looking for a truly memorable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Cape Town is the place to be! Do more than the traditional dinner this year – book one of these unique luxury Cape Town experiences to truly spoil that special someone.
For those with a sweet tooth
Chocolate! The very word conjures up emotions of comfort and luxury. But don’t give a man (or woman) a proverbial fish, teach them how to make their own cocoa magic at the Cape Town Lindt Factory, where you can indulge in chocolatier lesson, and get to keep the spoils. 85% cocoa chocolate truffle torte with Chantilly cream – we’ll just leave it at that!
Getting roses delivered is so ‘last-year’, make a day of it with a rose-picking extravaganza at Chart Farm in Wynberg. Here you have free reign to select your own perfect blooms from their extensive gardens. For ultimate romance, show off your pickings at The Terrace coffee shop afterwards with afternoon tea and romantic mountain views.
Kick back and relax
A chauffeured trip for two around the lovely Cape Peninsula is just the trick to melt the misgivings of your heart’s desire. Chocolates and bubbly are included in this whirlwind romantic trip and you can top off the experience with some fine dining at your favourite V&A Waterfront restarant afterwards.
For a little culture
Despite the bitter ending, nothing speaks of romance or refined good taste than a performance of Romeo and Juliet at the open-air Pink Flamingo Cinema. Pack the popcorn, or a picnic, and a blanket for cuddling under while you enjoy this classic romantic tale.
Take them shopping at the aptly named Love Market’s birthday bash. Here you can browse to your heart’s content among the very best locally-made crafts, gifts, and artisan eats and drinks, while a live band strums away in the background. An added bonus is the kiddie’s playground onsite and the chance to score a free cupcake if you arrive early enough.
Sometimes all that it needed is some quality time spent with your loved ones!
