To celebrate Women’s Month, gather your girls and hit the road for a weekend getaway to do what you do best, together: relax, catch up on gossip, sip a glass or two of wine and enjoy a well-deserved massage or mani-pedi.

If you’re wondering where to escape for your girls’ weekend getaway, we have you covered! Check out these AA-approved accommodation options near you.

Escape to luxury in the country, just a short drive from Johannesburg

Indulge in some country luxury at the Valley Lodge and Spa in Magaliesburg. Only an hour from Johannesburg, this is an ideal escape to reconnect with nature and catch up with your gal pals. Expect well-appointed rooms, delicious cuisine and warm hospitality. When you’re not trading stories over the 2016 Platinum Diners Club International Wine List, the lodge’s world-class Spa and Hydrotherapy Centre offer indulgent health and wellness treatments – just what you need for a girls’ weekend away!

Discover a little slice of Greece, on the West Coast

Club Mykonos, located on the serene shores of the Langebaan Lagoon, will transport you to your very own Greek paradise. Choose 3-star or 4-star accommodation and then hand-pick your weekend activities. Yoga classes, yacht charters, sailing school or diving? You have so many choices for hours of friend-fun. And when you’re done with soaking up the sun, head to the spa before catching up over a sundowner at the beach bar.

For the love of fine dining, head to Franschhoek

As the winner of the Best Small Guest House in the American Express® Accommodation Awards Programme, Gable Manor in Franschhoek is sure to be a winner with your girlfriends too. Only an hour from Cape Town, it’s the ideal spot from which to explore the gastronomic heartland of South Africa. If you’re dining out (yes, you are), the hosts will gladly organise your reservations in advance. And when you’re not exploring the antique shops and galleries along Huguenot Street, you can spend your time around the sheltered central pool courtyard sipping on a local vintage catching up with each other.

No-drama Drakensberg getaway

Moorcroft Manor, a converted farmhouse with 12 beautifully appointed rooms, is considered the best luxury boutique hotel in the Southern Drakensberg. Nestled at the foot of South Africa’s highest mountain range, the hotel is almost magical, seemingly drawing its power from its magnificent location to feed the soul in every experience. From exploring the local history to bird watching and horse riding, this is the perfect getaway for your nature-loving gal pals.

Take me to the beach

Pack the car and head to Port Alfred! Perfectly situated on the beachfront (and aptly named), The Beach House offers spectacular accommodation with unmatched grace and attention to detail. Wake up to the sounds of the sea, relax in the lounge, soak up the sun around the pool or stroll to the beach. You and your gal pals have loads of fun ahead of you on a Port Alfred weekend: stroll down Van der Riet St with its feast of eateries and quaint shops or visit The Little Brewery in Wharf Street for a beer tasting. For the culture-curious, visit the charming village of Bathurst which boasts one of the oldest licensed pubs in the country, as well as the world’s largest man-made pineapple, before heading to historical Grahamstown, a mere 45 minutes away.

Remember that wherever you’re heading, the AA is there to keep you safe and moving on the road.
