Three stunning South African hotels have been featured on the Top 50 list of “Most Romantic Hotels” as voted for by an audience of 1.6 million international travellers.


South Africa (11 February 2021) – From the sexiest accent in the world to the most festive cities globally, Big 7 Travel has a list for everything and South Africa is often featured on their Top 50 lists. Cape Town was even voted onto one of the best destinations of the decade!

1.5 million people from 60 countries take surveys and vote for the best travel accolades around the world. Big 7 Media share several lists which promote global travel. In the past, we have shared their lists about South Africa, including being the 5th most “Instagrammable” county in the world and the three listed above. There have been many more, but these are just a few of the exciting accolades awarded to South Africa.

Thankfully, while travel has been off-limits during the global pandemic of COVID-19, people have still been dreaming of where they want to go next.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Big 7 Travel asked their followers to vote for the 50 most romantic hotels globally, and South African destinations featured three times on the list! You can see the full list here.

Lion Sands Ivory Lodge – Mpumalanga, South Africa

“Ivory Lodge thinks of everything – from your champagne of choice in the maxibar to unique dining under the stars. Guests staying at Ivory Lodge can also spend a night or two in a luxury treehouse.

The Kingston Treehouse is built on boulders, across a small drawbridge, with lanterns to light the way. The pictures speak for themselves…”

La Residence – Franschhoek, South Africa

“Located in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley on a private 30-acre estate, La Residence is surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vineyards, olive groves and plum orchards. One of the world’s most romantic hotels.

A romantic and indulgent paradise that’s filled with rich fabrics, wonderful artwork and antique furniture. Guests dine either in their suite or the central Terrace Room, beside a fire or the stunning double rim-flow pool.”

Londolozi – Kruger National Park, South Africa

“Londolozi is right on the Sand River, in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve within the famous Greater Kruger National Park.

Each of the five camps has a uniquely different vibe, yet all are beautiful. Londolozi’s Private Granite Suites feature outdoor bathtubs where you can watch elephants play in the river.”
