Johannesburg, South Africa - May 2022
Our May Secret City Getaway
Saturday, 21 May
Step outside of the city and escape for an overnight adventure just 45 minutes away at a beautiful, private estate on the banks of the Vaal River.
This month, we are re-visiting one of our favourite Joburg Secret spots with new twists designed to make you say 'la vita è bella – life is beautiful'. Are you keen to join us?
Get ready for a bit of magic, a bit of mystery and a whole lot of indulgence as we offer a new take on one of our favourite Secret destinations yet.
This time, the choice is yours -- join us for the full overnight experience with quite a few Secret surprises in store for you or just join us for dinner and drinks.
We'll journey just outside the city to a truly spectacular hidden treasure, offering a rich and vibrant history, unparalleled views, a bit of peace and tranquillity and pure indulgence -- the perfect overnight getaway with that special someone. With a deep, vibrant and rich history, our Secret space for this enchanting experience will surprise and delight you at every turn.
Our Secret chef this month is a culinary virtuoso of both local and international acclaim and they are dusting off their chef's jacket and making their grand return to the kitchen just for us and one magical night -- and magnificent morning, should you decided to stay for breakfast!
This Secret chef began their culinary career at the Royale Hotel Durban in the late 80s, worked and traveled Europe in some of the best kitchens and proudly returned to South Africa in 1998 where they ran some of the country's top resort kitchens. It's truly an honour to welcome them as food is their passion and constantly creating, developing and testing new recipes and innovations keeps them at the top of their culinary game.
Are you ready to taste what this Secret chef is cooking up?
*NB:The overnight experience is designed to be enjoyed with your significant other or a close friend; each booking is for 2 guests and includes a private room at this lush, luxurious little hidden gem. Solo guests are more than welcome to join us for the dinner, of course.
It’s time to elevate your weekend with a different kind of overnight adventure all about food, wine and a few Secrets we can't yet let slip. This overnight adventure promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime getaway and we can't wait to share it with you!
Joining just for dinner? Get ready for 4 delicious courses, hand-selected, perfectly paired wines and an enchanting evening with new and old friends alike at our absolutely amazing Secret spot.

Guests joining us overnight are invited to self-drive to our Secret spot (revealed the day before!) and arrive at your leisure or opt for the round-trip shuttle service. Upon arrival, you’ll begin your SecretEATS experience with an intimate, exclusive riverside welcome in your room. After, take some time to explore and connect with nature before we meet up for some pre-dinner bubbles, canapes and our first Secret.
Now it's time to indulge in a simply sensational 4-course dining experience by our Secret chef and perfectly paired with some of our favourite South African wines. After dinner, retreat to your room to rest, recuperate and recover before tomorrow morning’s gourmet breakfast and a leisurely day on the property before heading back to the city.
While we can’t give away all our Secrets just yet, you know we've got a few up our sleeve just to take your weekend from wow to W-O-W!
