Luxury Getaways for Girls
Luxury Getaways for Girls
Who runs the world? Girls do! That’s right. And it’s often a tiring and thankless job.
So, ladies, if you and your friends are looking to reward yourself for all your hard work with a girl-powered weekend, then take your pick from opulent hideaways in the bush to party palaces in the gorgeous cities of Southern Africa.
South Africa is perfect for both adventure and relaxation, and here are some places you can retreat to when you’re in need of a bit of girl time. After all, it’s not easy running the world, and everyone needs to recharge their superpowers once in a while.
1. Singita Sweni Lodge, Limpopo
Do starbeds, open showers, treehouses, and elevated wooden walkways sound like just what you had in mind for the ultimate girls’ getaway? Then head to the edge of the Sweni River, where you can spend a holiday surrounded by nature and your best girlfriends. Suites and decks are balanced in the branches, and boast floor-to-ceiling windows and large open spaces so that you can all feel at one with the world, while completely away from it all.
2. Cape View Clifton, Cape Town
For some sugar and spice, and all things nice, check out of your day-to-day life and in to your dream house in the Mother City. This is the perfect place to soak up some understated luxury, incredible views and female company by the beach, with a few bottles of bubbly chilling in the fridge. Ah, bliss.
3. La Clé des Montagnes, Franschhoek
Girls rule in the vineyard villas next to this historic manor house in the spectacular Franschhoek Valley. This sophisticated spot is great for those seeking an intimate getaway with a close-knit group of gals. Opportunities abound for much-needed catch-ups around private pools or huge fireplaces and, if that weren’t enough, it’s a working wine farm, which means that there’ll be no shortage of grape juice. Your cup runneth over here.
4. Morukuru Owner’s House, Madikwe
Seek the shelter of an ancient Morukuru tree in this majestic hideaway in Madikwe. Tucked beneath a leafy canopy, this estate is located on a magnificent game reserve that you and your gal pals can explore together once you’ve had enough of the wine cellar, infinity pool and library. Good conversation, books and adventure await any ladies who love luxury.
5. Leobo Private Reserve, Vaalwater
This 20,000-acre private estate is the epitome of bushveld chic, with a Michelin-starred chef, a helicopter and an infinity plunge pool all at your disposal. The heart of the wild is calling out to all wild hearts who wish to explore this sub-tropical woodland expanse in style with their favourite females.
