We started our morning with a yoga session at the spa. Imagine doing yoga with a view of the ocean, and the sounds of the waves to calm you. Totally surreal.
We left the session feeling completely relaxed. After that, it was time for breakfast. We golf carted back to reception and feasted on croissants, eggs and fruit 🙂 I was so impressed at the fact that all the food is so fresh, despite the resort being on a remote island with no shops nearby. The croissants seemed as though they had just been baked that morning.
We packed our bags and sadly departed our room 🙁 At the end of a holiday it’s always bittersweet for me: I’m excited to get back home to my cats and my own bed etc, but I’m sad to leave the holiday destination. This was only bitter- Indigo Bay was the perfect island destination- calm, scenic, luxurious.. and I really did not want to leave.
But alas, our plane was waiting at the resort’s runway (how glam does that sound!?) so we had to leave.
Farewell Indigo Bay, I WILL be back…
We were treated to some spectacular views once again.
I think Indigo Bay is the perfect destination for couples on honeymoon or couples who just want to spend some QT together. They have a magnificent honeymoon suite with its own private plunge pool, and apparently they do free upgrades upon availibility 🙂
They also have villas that sleep 4 people- great for a family.
They’re currently running a special with rates that are 40% lower than their standard rates.
The reduced cost is USD 327 per person sharing per night for a 2 sleeper beach chalet, and USD 1134 per night for a 4 sleeper villa.
This includes accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner, a 15 minute spa treatment, scheduled daily snorkelling trips, soft drinks, bottled water, house wine, beer and selected spirits, tea/coffee, mini bar and non motorized activities and equipment.
So basically for a weekend away for 2 people you’re looking at roughly R10,000 excluding flights. This may sound like a lot, but remember that, apart from activities, you won’t have to pay a cent more than that when you leave, and you can eat and drink as much as you want. A weekend in Cape Town could easily cost this much when you add up meals and drinks.
I think it’s totally worth it, especially in Winter where us Joburgers are freezing our a$$es off! You can get on a 2 hour flight at OR Tambo, take off your trenchcoat and slip on a bikini!
