Atlantic Tintswalo, South Africa

Combining love and travel, this place takes romance to the next level! We were in South Africa for a friend's wedding and as an early birthday present to me from my boyfriend, we checked into the exclusive Atlantic Tintswalo for some much needed R&R, bubbles and a sunset dinner overlooking the beautiful curve of Hout Bay, just 30 minutes drive from Cape Town.

The handful of lodges are individually themed in terms of decor (we were in Cousine Island) and each suite has its own roll top bath, mini bar and the calming sound of the Atlantic ocean crashing against the rocks directly below your private balcony - pure bliss!

After canapés and sundowners, we worked our way through four courses of mouthwatering bites and polished off a bottle of our favourite Southern Right Pinotage. It was also the spot that I say yes to becoming Mrs G - it will forever be a special place to us!
