Valentine's Day

With Valentine’s Day upon us, nowhere sets the scene more romantically than The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, renowned for passionate, attentive service and sublime cuisine in exquisite settings.

The Oyster Box

In Umhlanga Rocks, overlooking the Indian Ocean, the iconic Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most romantic destinations. Panoramic views across the Atlantic Ocean make Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa an unforgettable venue for your Valentine’s celebration.

The Oyster Box has been at the heart of South African romance for decades. On February 14th, the Valentine’s Dinner Dance hits the right note for an unforgettable evening with your one and only. Savour six exquisite courses before dancing the night away. The following day, you can sample boutique and unique wine offerings at the Rosés and Reds evening, with canapés, a four-course meal and wine pairings.

On the 22nd, start your day with a rejuvenating spa treatment including a light breakfast, mask and Hammam steam room. In the evening, take your date out for Dinner and a Movie in the private cinema, including a glass of Champagne to make the night extra special. Celebrate togetherness all month at the Spa and use rose quartz to add positive love energy to your relationship.

The Twelve Apostles

Dramatically poised above the Atlantic Ocean, flanked by the majestic Twelve Apostles and Table Mountain, The Twelve Apostles hotel is a breath-taking location for Valentine’s Day. Delight in five sumptuous courses overlooking the ocean with exceptional wine pairings. On the 14th or 15th, sip Champagne on the deck, enjoy a four-course sushi dinner, then take in a movie in the hotel’s plush cinema.

For a wonderful daytime treat throughout February, Valentine’s High Tea is a feast for the senses, with a delectable selection of cakes and pastries, including Rose Verrine, Forest Berry and White Chocolate Macarons, and Strawberry Crème Choux. Also throughout the month, SUSHI By 12A is an innovative culinary journey for sushi lovers.
