  1. It’s been a long, stressful and tiring year and my wife and I need to recuperate, to rejuvenate our bodies and mental state. This will come in handy.

  2. Destination…spa indulgence…right about now…its been an exhausting, long and tiresome year! In so much need of this…pure royal decadent couple spa treatment with my man! <3

  3. I would looove to win this for my mom – She is more than a pillar, she is like a favourite pillow or cuddly toy – you know where to turn to for some warmth, comfort and reassurance.

    A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.

    The key is also to celebrate and honour your mother whilst you still can,
    therefore I would looove to take advantage of this opportunity to enter this competition to show her what she means to me.

    I used to say that I was the apple and my mom was the tree, and I certainly
    didn’t fall very far. But that’s not entirely accurate. If my mom is the tree, then I’m the bird that grew up in its branches.

    She protected me and showed me that, even on the highest of branches, there was nothing to be afraid of. She encouraged me to explore and gave me a solid foundation to come home to. I didn’t fall from her. I flew because of her.

    She’s always pushes me and never pulled me down…

    She always wants to help in things I do or want to do…

    This would be perfect just to show her my gratitude for all she’s done for me!

    Whilst most of us could never really thank our moms entirely for everything they have done for us, in only one gift a year.
    This competition would be but a small token of thanks for the endless beauty she has represented in your life, a small yet thoughtful gesture, for the tears, her joys, her pains, the many times she has been there when our lives fell apart at the seams, the way she helped us pick the pieces, without asking for anything in return. The eternal love, no matter what we have done.
    Moms are the compass for our families; they provide the nurturing and comfort that will keep you strong for the rest of your life, and echo into your children’s lives, and their children.

  4. I need this spa experience so badly,this year has been mentally and physically draining. I gave birth to my first baby this year and im having alot of sleepless nights besides the fact that babies are lota of hard work,I need time and space to relax and unwind so that I can get back to being a fantastic mom to my little boy

  5. My husband and I made the mistake of getting married close to Christmas! Every year by the time our anniversary comes around we are so exhausted and over celebrating in general that we end staying in, ordering sushi and going to bed early. So sad, I know! This year is our 15th Wedding anniversary and there could be nothing nicer than really celebrating in style at Oudekraal with some treatments and a night away. Oh, let it be us, let it be us! (liked both pages on FB)

  6. My boyfriend and I had plans to go away which have fallen through and I would love it if we could still enjoy a spa experience together.

  7. What an awesome giveaway! I could really do with a break as I have not had leave in two years! Think it’s time for a holiday! 🙂
