Romance is well catered for at Singita Sweni Lodge, whether that means a couples massage at the spa, a late-night stargazing experience or sleeping outside on your suite’s private deck. Food and wine are also a big part of any visit to Singita, and a special cellar dinner just for two makes for a truly enchanting evening.


Most recently, the team at Singita Sweni Lodge set up a private meal for a honeymooning couple who had previously visited the Cape Winelands, and were extremely enthusiastic about South African wine. The lodge sommelier and the kitchen staff put together a personalised three-course menu that was paired with hand-selected wines in their favourite varietals. The couple was surprised after their evening game drive and lead down to the temperature-controlled cellar, where a table had been laid just for them.


The sommelier explained the concept for the food-and-wine pairing, and took them through a quick tasting so that they could try a few new and interesting bottles that would complement their meal. Personalised wine tastings are a regular feature at all of Singita’s lodges, and a true guest favourite, for connoisseurs and casual tasters alike. Singita’s experienced sommeliers are able to guide guests through a variety of wine styles, years and cultivars to find the wines most suited to their individual tastes.
