All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt. Charles M. Schulz.

Nor does a trip to Manna Bay! Nestled on the slopes of Table Mountain, one of the New Seven Wonders of The World, this beauty of a boutique hotel is the perfect romantic getaway! You’d expect nothing less from a three time World Travel Awards Nominee in the Leading Boutique Hotel category. And you couldn’t get closer to Table Mountain on foot if you tried! Quite literally, their gates lead onto The Table Mountain National Park!

Each room stylish and unique, ours being the oriental room which was terribly romantic, and their windows are floor to ceiling glass. Adorned in cherry blossom wallpaper and over looking a koi pond, I felt like a royal princess, or Geisha in this case!

Speaking of royalty their high tea is any girls dream! An illustrious spread of quiches, cakes and bubbles in their opulent lounge. And it’s included in the cost. So are dinner transfers by the way, which made getting around in the evening a breeze! And trust me; you need the encouragement to get out, because it’s so easy to stay put in a place like this! On arrival in the evening you are greeted by irresistible nightcaps paired with chocolates before heading up to your abode.

We started our day with wondrous views from the sunny breakfast room and filled up on eggs Benedict, I’m convinced there’s not a single person on earth who doesn’t love those!

The staff are hands on and have a keen eye for detail.

All in all, a pretty amazing stay that I would return for in a heartbeat!
