Keep The Good Times Rolling...

Each year brings with it a multitude of fun days and holidays to be enjoyed and celebrated. We always try to make our guests feel super special (as they are).

Father's Day
For Father’s Day, little gift bags of jelly beans with labels which read “Thanks for bean such a great dad” were given to the daddies upon check-in, along with a refreshing drink and yummy snack.
Women's Day
We created a photo booth for all of the women who were checking-in on Women’s Day. The ladies had to choose two words, that best described them, and then photos were taken. The ladies were also given a discounted breakfast voucher which they could use during their stay.
Spring Day
The Baywater Village entrance garden was decorated with bright wooden flowers and our recreation area was beautified in a bright spring theme for our Spring Day celebrations. Guests were also given fresh fruit juice to sip on while they checked in.
Heritage Day
We celebrated everything proudly South African during Heritage Day. Guests enjoyed a bring and braai with South African themed décor. Cookies, decorated with the South African flag, were also handed out during check-in.
