Love it or hate it ; Valentines Day is fast approaching and with so much pressure on everyone to plan the ‘perfect date’ we thought we would give a bit of assistance in order to melt those hearts and win some smiles.
Dinner is a big part of Valentines day, some say it can be the deal breaker, why not chose one of the best restaurants in your city for a delicious delicacy? In Johannesburg we have Clico Boutique Hotel show off your flair by adding a wine pairing per dish. Overindulge yourself at Parc Ferme with a seven course meal for R450 per person. If you don’t feel like spending too much money on food with no entertainment Le-Si Signature Restaurant in Pretoria is offering a buffet dinner, dance floor and live entertainment for R350 per person. Living in KZN? Gigi’s restaurant offers you the full package, five course meal with bubbly, your own room and breakfast the next morning. The Mother city is seeing a lot of action this Valentines day, ranging from Reuben’s at the One and Only with a seasonal six course meal for R395 per person to dining under the stars for one lucky couple at Nobu.
Being wined and dined not really hitting your romantic buttons? How about A spa package for two at the Mount Nelson in Cape town or at the Cozy Nest Spa in Durban. Feeling more adventurous than lying down getting a massage? Keep things interesting by going for a picnic up table mountain (also a great way to save on some cash); Moses Mabhida Stadium- the Big Swing, that’s right, view the stadium in Durban from a completely unique angle this Valentines Day and get your heart beating in more ways than one. See the stars at the Johannesburg planetarium with your lover, enjoy the beauty of the awe-inspiring night sky as recreated by the famous Hamburg Projector.
Let’s liven this up shall we? Dress up as Jack and Rose and enjoy this romantic evening (without the tragic ending of course) at the “Last dinner on the Titanic” in JHB. There will be iceberg warnings, live music and “Survival gifts” handed out, a lucky couple will win a trip to Ireland, how about that to make this night more beautiful. In Durban enjoy a breathtaking three hour Sunset cruise which includes Champagne and a five course meal.
So all you single people out there, if you were dreading this Valentine’s business and wondering what to do that night , well, look no further, 5FM and Vuzu got you covered, in JHB and Cape Town! Theme this year is Smart… With slippers. Imagine a gorgeous girl in a cocktail dress with her “stay at home only” slippers on or a hunky fellow dressed up.. With bunny slippers. Needless to stay the mix of fabulous djs, dance floors, kissing booths and blind dating will make this a night to remember.
Please remember to book things in advance, some people have been eagerly planning this since last Valentines Day.
