PERSONAL REVIEW BY LEILANI - FOUNDER OF DATE NIGHT SA
Castello di Monte in Waterkloof Ridge, Pretoria is the ultimate date night destination if you long to make your way to Italy to chase la dolce vita, but don't really have the time to do so. Having visited Italy myself fairly recently, I can attest that the likeness is truly uncanny!
We'd let management know that we were visiting for a romantic evening, so they prepared a special, secluded dining space with a cracking fire - something that can be requested if you'd prefer to do so yourself. The venue often plays host to smaller weddings of up to 35 guests, so they really know how to turn on the charm.
The food was wonderful and when we made our way to our room we were met with a lovely interior and an indescribably beautiful view, which we marveled over even further the next morning while enjoying our breakfast that was set up and presented on our private patio. Personal attention to detail is evident at every turn and we enjoyed excellent service throughout our stay. I would highly recommend Castello di Monte for couples living in Pretoria, Johannesburg, and Rustenburg who are pining for a getaway, but simply don't have the time to get on a plane or take a long road trip - all you need to do is book a room and take a breather with all the luxury of Italy right there at your fingertips.
