Long, balmy summer days in Knysna and love affairs make for a gloriously heady combination and the unparalleled beauty of our little piece of paradise provides the ideal backdrop for Valentines Day romance. With this in mind, we have thoughtfully designed five different Valentine’s Packages packages for all those star-crossed lovers out there that want to celebrate the upcoming Hallmark day of love in style.
Valentines Day Packages include Aromatherapy massages at Le Spa Tranquille, Stand up Paddle sessions on the Knysna Estuary, GONOW electric bike cruises in and around Knysna, Eco-Marine Tours or a sublime Sunset Sail. And for those couples that want to escape the hustle and bustle of Knysna, we have also included the option of staying at the Sage Valley Farm Cottages, which is situated on a stunning farm outside Knysna.
Wanna know more? Below are some brief details of the activities on offer to help you decide which of the five Valentines Day package appeals to you the most.
Le Spa Tranquille
Le Spa Tranquille is situated on the banks of the scenic Knysna Estuary on Thesen Island’s trendy Harbour Town. All of their therapy rooms boast sweeping views of the lagoon which, combined with the expert hands of qualified therapists, guarantees an experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and de-stressed. Relax on a lounger on the pool deck and soak up the view before and after a pampering treatment and take in the beauty of the surrounds.
Cruise Knysna on an Electric Bike
Electric bikes are one of the fastest growing trends in urban travel, which is why we invested in a fleet of GONOW electric bikes (and because we love the fact that they are environmentally friendly.) These fun urban cruisers give you the chance to explore extensive stretches of Knysna without working up a sweat and smudging your mascara! They are self-powered, quiet and easy to ride and as an added bonus for anyone keen on keeping our environment clean, they emit ZERO harmful emissions.
Marine Eco Tour
Our Marine Eco Tour serves to showcase both the beauty of Knysna’s iconic craggy coastline and the remarkable web of marine life that thrives wild and free in these coastal waters. Guests exit the Knysna Heads and head out into the Indian Ocean…where a extraordinary marine wonderland awaits.
Sunset Sail on the Outeniqua yacht
This romantic Sunset Cruise run by Springtide Charters (one of the longest running charter company’s in Knysna) has long been an extremely popular pursuit for love birds. Guests set sail from the bustling Knysna Waterfront and head out the Knysna Heads (weather and sea conditions permitting) on-board the Outeniqua, a beautifully crafted, 50 ft monohull yacht. After an unforgettable sail out in the big blue, the yacht returns to the quieter waters of the Estuary and guests can then feast on a Mediterranean platter and quaff a glass of bubbly while watching the sun set against a the sublime backdrop that is Knysna.
This Cozy studio is conveniently situated between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay and sleeps four guests (one main bedroom and a sleeper couch in the lounge). It has been simply but tastefully adorned with charming decor and high quality linen. It has fully equipped self catering kitchen, a ceiling fan, boardgames and Weber braai. The cottage is situated on a peaceful working farm with incredible valley views on a farm setting that is bounded on one side by indigenous forest and the lovely Boschriver. Guests have access to the gardens and the pool area, there is a lovely walk and trail that cuts through the field down to the river.
Stand Up Paddle
Stand Up Paddling is a fantastic way to experience the beauty of our vast estuary and the calmer waters of the Thesen Island canals are perfect for this fast growing watersport. Not only is it fun, but it provides a killer core workout too!
