 When to Wed:

Amanzimtoti is generally beautiful all year round, however the hotter months range from November to February, and can include thunder showers in the evenings, with the cooler months usually being quite dry (from June to August). September is known as the windy month and Durban may also receive a higher percentage of rain during this time. The most popular time of year to wed is March and April (autumn).

Whatever time of year you choose, book in advance to ensure you have enough time to ensure your big day is a fairy-tale, come true!

Heavenly treatments for couples who need a little “RnR”


When it comes to a start of year spoil, what better time to indulge than the month of love.

Massage is believed to be beneficial for the body and the mind and the best way to feel energised.

When we receive a spa treatment our blood circulation is improved which sends oxygen throughout the body. The lymphatic system is also stimulated which rids the body of toxins. Even better, the act of massage on the body releases Serotonin, which enhances ones mood.

Created especially for Valentine’s Day, experience the Romantic Love Package for only R990 for a couple.

Enjoy a Couples Aroma full body massage (60 minutes), time in the detox floatation therapy pool, the Jacuzzi and steam room, as well as a spa gift for the lady, along with a sugar bar in the Belvedere lounge.

You may also want to make it extra special with all the bells and whistles. Add on a romantic table setting with flowers, chocolates, bottle of sparkling wine and a complimentary R200 spa voucher for R650, with a total cost for both packages at R1600.

Alternatively indulge in the Valentine’s Grand Deluxe package which is sure to be a day to remember.
