Perfect ‘staycation’ weekend breaks after lockdown

If there is one thing we have all learned during this time of lockdown it’s that life is for living and is way too short. The good news is, Celestial Gifts and the Bucket List Genie have been hard at work researching some fabulous weekend and overnight staycations right here in beautiful South Africa. There really is no better time to invest in yourself and your relationships than with a well-deserved break. Not travelling overseas doesn’t mean missing out and, as an added bonus, supporting local is the right thing to do, right now.

So how do you still do social distancing and go out?

It doesn’t sound possible, but it is. There are a few exceptional venues where you can have the ultimate, luxurious experience without compromising any of your concerns around safety and exposure.

Whether you’re looking for a Parisienne style romantic getaway with a flair for joie de vivre in breathtaking Harties, or delicious Italian Sunday dining with overnight stay in a beautiful guest house on Hartbeespoort Dam only an hour’s drive from the city, we’ve got you covered.

If you thought a decadent spa treatment weekend was out of the question, then think again. You and your partner can relax and be pampered in beautiful, tranquil settings while your stresses melt away. We’ve even got an overnight banquet on a blanket option in breathtaking Umhlanga, where luxury overflows in each of the six private suites.

A break can be a roof top getaway in cosmopolitan Cape Town, with vistas of magnificent Table Mountain, or a private romantic picnic in a secluded location nestled on the Crocodile River riverbank.

Perhaps you’ve had a birthday or a special milestone during lockdown?

Why not make the decision and celebrate the occasion? Don’t let the time just go by… The best way to feel ‘normal’ again is to make a plan and take action! It can be overwhelming now with social distancing and safety protocols. That’s why ‘staycationing’ ticks all the boxes!

2020 can still be a positive experience and we can find the fun and relaxation we are all looking for. With that being said take a closer look at these amazing deals on offer. The Bucket List Genie has created these experiences with your best interest in mind.

Celestial Gift operators are ready to answer any queries you may have, and rest assured, the hard work has been taken care of. All you need to do, is browse, click and book.
