February is a very romantic month, and two South African hotels have been honoured on the ‘Most Romantic Hotels’ list of 2022.
South Africa (02 February 2022) – It is the month of love, and what better way to celebrate, than to have two South African hotels listed on the “50 Most Romantic Hotels in the World 2022” list. The list was compiled by travel media company Big 7 Travel.
Lion Sands, Ivory Lodge in Mpumalanga, and La Residence in Franschoek were listed among the world’s most romantic destinations. Included on the list are hotels from Aruba, Botswana, Bali and France, to name a few.
In January this year, South Africa was named the 6th best honeymoon destination by the Big 7 Travel readership. According to 1.6 million international travellers from Big 7 Travel, South Africa is the place to be to celebrate your love, whether that be on a honeymoon or for a romantic getaway.
Lion Sands, Ivory Lodge – Mpumalanga
The lodge earned the 33rd spot on the list.
“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, Franschoek – Western Cape
La Residence earned the 29th spot on the list.
“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.”
