As for the hotel itself, there are just 80 rooms and suites, all individually designed with hand-carved furnishings, hand-painted walls and original antiques and art. But the place doesn't skimp on modern luxury either, offering luxe linens, flat screen TVs and free internet. Rounding out the amenities and offerings are three restaurants, three pools, a fitness center, a spa, museum and a sculpture garden.
Rates start around $150 a night for a regular room, excluding breakfast. However, there are a ton of packages available so be sure to peruse those.
Or you could make it easy on yourself and book Travelzoo's "Romantic Bachelorette Package" for two at the Sandton's sister property, the Lodge Kura Hulanda for $1,650 that includes five nights in an oceanfront studio, welcome roses, two dinners--one in the Zen Garden and one on the resort's private beach, a rose petal-lined path to the beach with moonlit dessert and champagne and a two-person snorkel trip to Blue Cave.
Shuttle buses are available to ferry guests to the Sandton in case they want to replicate Emily Maynard's proposal. While the offer is good through December 23, you have to book by August 31.
