The Twelve Apostles Hotel

When it comes to popping the big question or just having a Valentine’s Day picnic, location really is everything. Everyone always remembers where they were when their partner got down on bended knee and declared undying love. Which is why there can’t be anywhere more spectacular than the heart-shaped Stanley’s Rock at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. Sitting high above the Atlantic Ocean, and looking up towards Table Mountain and Lion’s Rock, the vast skies meet the deep blue of the sea where passing whales surface for air.

South Africa’s Camps Bay is, after all, where soft, platinum sands and strings of beautiful people meet the big rollers of the Atlantic Ocean. Where the coastline so unspoilt it’s been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site which makes it perfect for quiet strolls, soaking up the sun, or simply sitting back with a bottle of champagne and enjoying the company of a loved one. Indeed, it’s this that make Stanley’s Rock the perfect place for a romantic picnic (packed with a bottle of Moët & Chandon Imperial, a fabulous bunch of roses and some really decadent treats).

Valentines Day Picnic

If you’re looking for a little bit extra, then The Twelve Apostles Hotel has something rather special. The team have sourced some Diamant Classique MCC, one of South Africa’s finest sparkling wines, where the bottle contains a ¼ carat diamond. With magnificent mountains hugging the Atlantic seaboard, huge skies framing the landscape, and dramatic ocean views, there are few places that can qualify as quite so romantic as a Stanley’s Rock picnic table.

Valentines Day Picnic

If the untamed beauty of the Table Mountain National Park, glorious beaches, and secluded intimacy of Stanley’s Rock sound enticing, why not book a picnic with The Twelve Apostles Hotel and spend the night in one of the hotel’s elegant rooms.
