Great getaway packages for domestic travellers

Cape Summer Villas Boutique Collection is offering remarkable package deals to domestic travellers, which include a stay at one of two premier Cape Summer Villas Boutique Collection properties: Sky Villa Boutique or The Bungalow  in the popular holiday destination of Plettenberg Bay.

Seal the Deal

This package includes an Offshore Adventures’ ‘Swim with the seals’ experience, where you’ll get to swim with the Cape fur seals in Plettenberg Bay (yes, please!)

Your swim-with-the-seals experience begins when you board the Robberg Express, manned by an experienced crew, for an exciting boat ride out to the Robberg peninsula and the Robberg Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area, home to approximately 6 000 Cape Fur seals.

Then – it’s a just a hop into the water (accompanied by a qualified divemaster who keeps an eye on things) to enjoy and delight in the
ultimate wild animal encounter in a natural environment. In no time at all you’re surrounded by the frolicking, playful and inquisitive furry seals that live up to their reputation of being the ‘puppies’ of the ocean – swimming under you, next to you, on top of you – an unforgettable experience!

This package is for two adults sharing for two nights, includes accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. R4 600 Ts & Cs apply.

Beach to Bush

Up for a magical two-hour long game drive at the Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve?

This two-hour Game Drive across the 2 200 hectare Plettenberg Game Reserve with its breathtaking scenery is a great way to get to see South Africa’s wildlife and experience the magic of the African bush. Plus you have a more than excellent chance of spotting at least four of the Big 5: buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino, as well as other wildlife such as giraffe, zebras, the many species of antelope, birds and more and informative commentary from a professional and knowledgeable guide.

This package is for two adults sharing for two nights and includes accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. R4 680 Ts & Cs apply.

Champagne Cruise

If there are two things I love, it’s (1) champagne, and (2) a cruise (even a paddling one)!

This package offers an amazing Keurbooms River stand up paddling (SUP) and champagne cruise, courtesy of Sup Keurbooms.

Glistening water, indigenous forest, deep river ravines, the call of the fish eagle, a swooping flash of the Knysna Loeries – you’ll enjoy all this on a chillaxing champagne SUP river boat cruise on the Keurbooms river up to Whiskey Creek, where you’ll have great fun stand-up-paddling, after which you can relax on the beach, pop open a bottle of bubbly and soak up the natural splendour of the forest and river. What a perfect way to commune with nature.

This package is for two adults sharing for two nights and includes accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. R4 300 Ts & Cs apply.

Family Fun Stay

This package – for two adults and two kids under 12 –  includes a fun-filled day trip to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and the Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary.

Monkeyland, probably the best known of the three, is the world’s first free-roaming, multi-species primate sanctuary – and you’ll be able to ‘join’ the monkeys in the forest where you’ll catch sight of the many various species: capuchin monkeys, vervet monkeys, gibbons, squirrel monkeys and many others; and right next door is Birds of Eden, said to be the largest free-flight aviary in the world, home to more than 3 500 birds from over 220 species, set in an indigenous forest with waterfalls and elevated walkways where you’ll enjoy spotting a bounty of birds flying free; and then Jukani, where rescued Big Cats feel right at home, and where you can admire them all: the big cats such as lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars, and the smaller predators like pumas, cheetahs and caracal.

This package is for two adults and two children under the age of 12, for two nights and includes accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. R5 800 Ts & Cs apply.

Perfect Date

This package includes a romantic Thai Oil couples’ massage, courtesy of Royal Thai Plett.

At Royal Thai Plett you’ll step into a calm and soothing environment where you can both relax, rejuvenate, and restore your stressed lockdown-weary souls. Your friendly masseuse will deal specifically with those areas where lockdown stresses have taken hold – those tense neck muscles and tight shoulders – the soothing Thai Oil massage will help to re-balance and relax your entire body. You’ll leave with a wonderful feeling of well-being.

Couples will receive a bottle of wine and a fruit platter on arrival at their choice of accommodation.

This package is for two adults for two nights and includes accommodation breakfasts and romantic private dinners. R4 200. Ts & Cs apply.

Stay and Play

For all the golf enthusiasts out there: this package includes a round of golf at the signature Gary Player designed 18-hole, 72-par Goose Valley Golf Course.

Uniquely situated on a sand dune which facilitates the easy draining of the course, even after heavy rains, the Goose Valley Golf Club offers a year-round-play premier golfing experience. Its state of the art driving range, beautifully manicured silky smooth greens, lush fairways and practice chipping, putting and bunker play facilities, with the beauty of the natural fynbos, indigenous trees and abundance of animal and bird life, will add another dimension to your golfing. The clubhouse includes a spacious, elegant restaurant and bar and a well-stocked pro shop, and the welcome from staff members and teaching professionals, is always warm and friendly. Enjoy the 19th hole!

This package is for two adults sharing for two nights and includes accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. R4 000 Ts & Cs apply.

And for your choice of accommodation for any of these packages?

If it’s luxury you’re after, then the 5-star Sky Villa Boutique Hotel is the place to Seal the Deal. Or, if it’s a more informal option you’re wanting – a chilled funky atmosphere … toes-in-the-sand … sipping cocktails on the deck … leaving your flip-flops at the door … and enjoying amazing sea views – then it’s The Bungalow, a luxury 5-star Bed and Breakfast right on the water’s edge at Hobie Beach.

I wouldn’t mind laying my head to rest here … Sky Villa
Or here … The Bungalow
