WIN a night for 2 at MannaBay Boutique Hotel in Cape Town

Now if you are parents you’ll understand the significance of this prize… A night away for 2 SANS KIDS is pretty much heaven on earth! And if said night is at MannaBay then you’ve hit the jackpot – I should know, I spent a night there last year. One of 2 we’ve had away from the kids in almost 3 years! It was stunning and I’m so grateful to my special friends who spoilt us! Read about my experience here.

Anyway, why should I be the only one to have such a treat?? Exactly! That is why I’m so THRILLED to share with you this amazing competition… It’s right up there with the best prizes I’ve offered! (p.s. non-parents are also welcome to enter!!)


MannaBay is located at the foot of the Table Mountain in Cape Town’s Oranjezicht. It has been nominated as one of the leading boutique hotels in South Africa by the World Travel Awards and are ranked 4th for Cape Town Accommodation on Trip Advisor with a 5-star rating!

All 7 of the magnificent bedrooms are individually decorated with exquisite art and unique furniture pieces. They all have state-of-the-art flat screen TVs with a variety of satellite channels, are fully air-conditioned and have underfloor heating. The opulent, white, marble bathrooms, feature indulgent Moya products

The lounge spaces have amazing views across Cape Town’s CBD and you can watch the cable car ferry visitors up and down while relaxing on the wooden sun deck next to the swimming pool. MannaBay are also well known for their splendid High Tea which takes place every afternoon at 4pm.

A G&T in the lounge bar as the sun slips behind the mountain and over the cityscape is a must before heading out to a trendy eatery in town. And when it’s all over you’ll still have the beautiful breakfast to look forward to! Fruits, cheeses, freshly squeezed juices, Africa’s finest single roast coffees, freshly baked breads and of course a mouth watering selection of hot dishes all await!

Now all that’s left to prepare is the babysitter!! But with an opportunity like this I’m sure you’ll find a willing granny. And for those of you without kids, there’s no excuse! All you need to do is pack your bags!

Here are some pics to “whet your appetite”….
