Long-stemmed red roses, fluffy animal toys with cheesy sayings, cards with professions of undying love…yes, Valentine’s Day 2017 is almost upon us and even the most logical and level-headed among us will be participating in this annual celebration of love.
The day has become a commercialized frenzy of consumer sales rocketing through the roof as more than 150 million cards are exchanged every year on this day. Don’t be tempted to kick against the day of love – rather use the day as an excuse to spoil your loved-one but heed WorldVentures’ General Manager Kemble Morgan’s advice; “Plan ahead! Whether you’ve decided to stay in for a romantic dinner by the pool or if you’re going to join the rest of the love-birds at a restaurant, spa or romantic getaway, the key to success this Valentine’s Day is to plan ahead”.
In 2016 WorldVentures, the world’s largest curator of group travel, added DreamTrips Local to their South African offering. This offering gives DreamTrips members the opportunity to dine out at participating restaurants and while doing so, earning points to put towards their next DreamTrip holiday. While earning points towards a holiday for simply eating out sounds like a good enough reason to participate, guests dining at these restaurants will be treated as VIP’s. So, what better way to ‘wow’ your loved one than to have the restaurant that you are dining at roll out the red carpet for you on one of the busiest nights of the year?
Here are some DreamTrips Local restaurants that have been cherry-picked for Valentine’s dinners this year:
Chefs@566 - Pretoria
A Master Chef-style a la carte menu will be available with the freshest of ingredients on what promises to be the most romantic and intimate evening of the year.
