3 PAYDAY DATE IDEAS IN DURBAN & SURROUNDS
July 13, 2017
Durban couples assemble! We’ve found three fabulous payday date ideas for those times when you really feel like pushing out the boat. These outings also happen to be tailormade for newlywed couples heading to eThekwini on their honeymoon.
DINNER & DANCING AT THE OYSTER BOX HOTEL
If you feel like dressing to the nines and heading out for some good, old-fashioned dinner and dancing, The Oyster Box Hotel
is the place to be. Back by popular demand, we will be hosting a monthly Dinner Dance in the famous Grill Room on the 29th July, 26th August and 30th September starting from 18h30. Enjoy Grill Room favourites and dance the night away, to live music. Price is R590 per person for three-course dinner.
A HELICOPTER TRIP TO THE VALLEY OF A THOUSAND HILLS
This one is 100% James Bond. BAC Helicopter Charters
offers private trips that takes you over the Umgeni River Valley all the way to the Valley of a Thousand Hills, where you'll enjoy a gourmet picnic on top of the mountain with a 360° view. This date is R4k+ for two people, but really worth it for a special occasion.
Top tip: If you feel like enjoying a view without spending a small fortune, you can also opt for an outing to the Rooftop Musgrave Night Market
held on the first Friday of every month. This is great for a low-key date - think live music and delicious slow food.
GO ON THE BIG RUSH SWING AT MOSES MABHIDA STADIUM
If you and your partner are adrenaline junkies, this is a date you need to go on ASAP. The Big Rush Swing
is officially the world's tallest swing according to the Guinness World Records. It’s open from 10am to 4pm every day except Tuesday and Thursday, and a jump costs R695 per person. Swing by Nino's
or the Cuba Lounge for a bite to eat afterwards to round off your date.
These are just three of the fun and fabulous dates you could enjoy in Durban and surrounds. For more ideas on glitzy nights out in eThekwini, as well as budget date ideas for those times when you’re not feeling all that flush, keep an eye on the Date Night Ideas blog in coming weeks and months.
