Valentine’s Day Tips for Planning a Weekend Away

For some couples, February is the one month of the year that they want to make a grand romantic gesture for their partner. It is the month of love after all, so if you are planning to take your partner away for a weekend this month, we have some great tips that you can use to make the weekend one they will never forget.

If you are planning your trip with the Lowveld in mind, you are making a great choice, because there is so much to love about our small corner of the world. At this time of the year, the weather is simply beautiful and that makes the city a great place to have a weekend away, especially if you are both outdoorsy kinds of people.

At Pensao, our accommodation in Nelspruit is the perfect place to stay when you are looking for that special weekend getaway with the one you love. Our rooms are kitted out to be big and comfortable, and we have a beautiful garden to explore, or to have a romantic picnic in. To help you make the most of your weekend with us in the city, you can use these tips to plan a trip that you will never forget!

  1. Explore the city

Nelspruit is not exactly the greatest place in terms of interesting sights, but there are a few places that you can go exploring. The Lowveld Botanical Gardens are always a great place to go if you are having a romantic weekend away, because it is not only a lovely place to wonder around, but it is also the perfect place to have a picnic.

  1. Make sure you disconnect

Put down your phone, turn it on silent, only look at it in the early morning and late evening. We spend so much time glued to our phones that we don’t realise that we are not communicating properly anymore and that we are no longer focused on one another. When on a break together, plan to disconnect in advance.

  1. Choose the right location

The ideal location must be the one that best suits the both of you. If you are hoping for a luxury retreat complete with a spa, then you should book such a location, and if you are keen on bush adventure complete with a safari, then you need to organise such a trip. The location is going to be key when it comes to making the most of your choice.

  1. Splurge a little

This weekend is all about the two of you and so you should be able to treat yourself a little, by indulging in that romantic dinner date in a fancy restaurant, or by buying you and your partner something you both want. You spend enough of your time glued to your office desk, making your hard earned money, so it is only right to use some of the money on yourself.
