The above statement is most frequently made by guests who stay at Casta Diva Boutique Hotel, nestled on the northern side of the Magaliesberg mountain; they are hardly ever disappointed.
As summer is on its way, relaxing at the half-Olympic size swimming pool will give you a sense of paradise as you enjoy the sunshine with a glass of wine whilst staring at the Magaliesberg mountain range. Their beautifully maintained garden (just under two hectares) offers an almost fairy-tale escape as you wander through the tropical vegetation. With the excellent on-premises Charisma Restaurant, you can conveniently take a culinary adventure without driving far to find great food. Serving a variety of dishes, the general consensus of guests is that the food is ‘excellent’. Not to mention the attentive service provided by the hosts. For wine lovers, there is a selection of delicious wines to choose from. Their intimate theatre Vissi d’Arte has planned a number of exciting performance with the South African stage diva, Tonya Koenderman, who has been hailed by critics as ‘one of the hottest properties on the cabaret circuit’, and ‘a pint-sized dynamo’.
The dates currently planned are:
2 September – The Botox Party
7 October – La La Land And Aall That Jazz – a tribute to the movies
The Botox Party is a light-hearted look at getting older in a youth-obsessed world and all the challenges that it presents. Here, you are free to Botox your face to a standstill, over-medicate on whatever the doctor is prepared to give you, and drink until all those wrinkles blur away. Cabaret singer and entertainer, Tonya Koenderman, takes you on a journey of physical and mental rejuvenation. Join her as she puts her own spin on classics such as ‘I’m All About That Bass’, ‘Memories’, ‘My Favourite Things’, ‘Feeling Good’, ‘New York, New York’, ‘Big Spender’, ‘That’s What Friends Are For’, as well as a host of others. You are bound to walk out embracing your ‘maturity’ with at least one more laugh line… but nothing a little botox can’t fix. After all, in the words of our diva, Tonya, ‘Life can be challenging as we get older, and we could do with all the help we can get.’ Visit their website at www.castadiva.co.za for more information, and keep an eye on their Facebook pages [Casta Diva the Place to | Casta Diva’s Charisma | Casta Diva’s Vissi d’Arte] to stay updated with the events and special offers.
