WIN | TWO NIGHTS AT SIMOLA | KNYSNA

Image from here
WIN : A two night stay for two people at Simola, including a special tasting menu for two.

Yes. I've had a rather lovely Knysna adventure - and as I couldn't take everyone with me, Simola has very kindly offered to treat a reader (and their partner) to a two night stay at their 5* hotel including a very special tasting menu, by Chef Delia Clarke.

Now, let me say I'm more than a little jealous of this one - as I didn't get to stay at the hotel, and the only treat of Delia's I managed to taste was her oyster contribution to Flavours of Knysna. The FOMO is firmly on my side, this time around.

Set high in the hills above Knysna, surrounded by forest and streams, Simola is set on a 325 hectare golf and leisure estate offers you a secluded retreat from the busyness of town - but, still only a 10 minute drive away. Ready to go?

TO ENTER : Let me know who you are. I love interacting with my readers - follow me on Twitter here and Facebook here. For an extra entry, Tweet :

  6. If you look at your competitions you will see a familiar face. I guess that says who I am. I am your serial commenter. As a blogger myself I do have my top 5 that I keep an eye on that’s why I have skipped a few steps on liking and following. I have never been to Knysna and two nights away would be a good way to celebrate my recent engagement. I can understand why you are jealous but I promise to take lots of pics. zimkhitha.sulelo@gmail.com

  9. I am a firm follower of your blog, already liked the Facebook page a while back and can be found on Twitter and Instagram as @Liesiekind and @marelizeferreira! 1) Your posts on Instagram caused serious Knysna-fomo 2) This Cape Town Winter is kicking me in the butt and it's time for something exciting. 3) I've never even won so much than a raffle at a church fete and it's time for the wheels to turn! Haha :-D No, but seriously. Keep up the lovely, mouthwatering posts!

    This is an awesome prize and a very beautiful place. Running in the half gives you a taste of the beautiful Simola and I would just love to have a stay there <3

  22. Hi Candice - love your blog :-) I'm Kim and I'm an explorer at heart; so I love travelling, adventure and learning & experiencing new stuff (Rambling Note: If I was born back in the way-back-then, I probably would have been married to Christopher Colombus LOL | though that would mean I would have needed to be an Italian like him, which I suppose I could do, especially since I'm a HUGE foodie and love cooking and baking. However, I'm not quite Nigella yet lol) Oh and I'm also a huge vanilla addict just like you. Anyway I digress, but I would love to win this super fantastic prize as I have heard amazing things about Simola and I love gorgeous Knysna. The tasting menu by Chef Delia Clarke would also take me to foodie heaven and be the cherry on top of an already amazing prize. I already follow you on Twitter (@Kimb_leigh) and Facebook ... my email is kbaxen@gmail.com ... Keep up the great work and all the best at your new job :-)

  26. Hi Candice (I feel like I want to call you Candy, but that probably wouldn't be appropriate, right? :P anyway), I'm @kristibeitz on twitter and instagram and I'm A Gorgeous Blog addict. Everything about your blog keeps me hooked on a Friday night while my man is playing PS ice hockey. I just can't help it!!

    But this Knysna competition - omg. It's like a family legacy. My parents had their honeymoon there. My husband and my first proper vacation was there too, and I haven't seen him in 9 months (long story involving immigration formalities and now I'm thinking that I could have had a baby in that time!!) and how beyond ahhmazing would it be for us to have another little two night getaway there?!? I'll pack the car and we can just go!!
    Ahhmazing.
    PS: I don't have Facebook but I sure do follow you on Instagram and Twitter!!

  39. Hiya.. my name is Lynn. Im from Cape Town.. happily married mom of 2 gorgeous little toddlers (4 and almost 3 years old) I have a full time job and my life is crazy hectic trying to juggle everything.. I would absolutely love to win a little romantic getaway.. Hubby and I met pretty late in life, got married and immediately started a family, so everything was pretty rushed. We are in desperate need of some alone time.. even just to get away to get an uninterupted night's sleep would be heavenly.. neither of the toddlers sleep through.. so yeah.. thats me in a nutshell.. exhausted, but wouldn't change it for the world :-) My details are as follows: botha.lynn@za.sika.com
