Winter Date Night Ideas

winter date night ideas in cape town

Winter will officially arrive in a couple weeks, but the weather has already started to change.

While we may be experiencing some chilly nights, there is definitely no need to let the winter blues get you down.

We’ve put together a list of romantic winter date night ideas, no matter what your love language!

Sun-downer Picnic
Every partner wants to hear just how much you love them. So why not let ‘Words of affirmation’ be the night's language of love, with a romantic picnic for two.
A few great venue ideas are Chapman's Peak - the sunset views over the ocean are spectacular, or Signal hill - another heavy hitter and a must picnic spot in Cape Town or go a little more personal - your favourite winery will do! Pack a few of your loved one’s favourite snacks and attach a small note onto each item. Each note should include another reason why you love them! You’ll enjoy snuggling up with blankets, a magical sunset and watching the expression on their face as they read your special words.

Relax & Unwind
There is simply no better way to express you love than spoiling yourself and your partner by heading to a spa for a couple’s massage! Life Day Spa has two convenient locations (Waterfront & Century City) both offering a plethora of relaxing treatments for couples. Don't forget to bring your cozzies so that you can enjoy the pool and steam room facilities while you wait.

A Deliciously Fun night out
Nothing will excite your partner more than the thought of you planning a surprise, romantic night out, and what better way to boost excitement with an evening at the Rockwell Dinner Theatre, conveniently located at The Rockwell All-suite hotel in GreenPoint. You’ll enjoy a welcome glass of bubbly, a mouth-watering 4-course meal and the amazing ‘Kaapse Stories’ show. It's really a no brainer. Feeling extra special? why not add a romantic night in a stunning, luxury apartment suite at the Rockwell Hotel. With stunning views and amazing on-site amenities, you’ll have a full weekend of activities right at your fingertips!

A Cosy Camp night in If all your partner needs to feel loved is some quality time with you, we’d recommend a romantic evening at home. First things first: take the afternoon off work so that you can get everything sorted before they get home. Then, head to the shops to pick up all of their favourite things: chocolates, wine…the works! Next, head to their favourite take-away location and grab a menu. Once you get home, use things from around the home to build a fort in the living room, complete with blankets, pillows and fairy lights for a little romantic flare. Finish it off with a few candles scattered around the room. Put all of their favourite things inside the fort, head in yourself and wait for them to arrive. Your loved one will not know what hit them!

Ps: You're Welcome 🙂
