Hi All,
We stayed in the honeymoon cabins 2 years ago and loved them. They are no longer listed on the Storms Rivers Mouth site. What happened to them, and when did it happen?

Hi George

I am not sure of the answer to your question, but when we were in Stormsriver during January 2008, they were busy renovating the older chalets. The ones nearest to the restaurant were finished and they were busy on some of the chalets in the vicinity. That may very well be the honeymoon one's. The honeymoon chalets have been around for quite some time and maybe they will ever be more stunning after renovation.
We also visited Stormsriver on our honeymoon, but did not stay over at the time and now I regret it! That was way back in 1981!!
We will be in Stormsriver during May and will be staying in the renovated ones and I will report back on the "missing honeymoon chalets" on my return.

Greetings
Johan

Hi George

We have just returned from Stormsrivermouth and I have bad news and good news.

Bad news: The honeymoon cottage have been demolished, level to the ground.

Good news: The honeymoon cottages have been rebuilt. Brand, spanking new in exactly the same location. Construction on two have been completed and the third are almost finished. All three were empty while we were there so I could peek through the window and I can advise you that now is a good time for a second honeymoon!

Any update on these units? They are still not on the system.
When will they be available again and what will their price be?

The honeymoon cabins are units 16a, 16b and 17. When I asked the reception at Storms river how to book these units on the website the guy told me they were called honeymoon chalets. I replied that "honeymoon chalets" were nowhere to be found on the website and he than said: "just give a call to this office and tell us the number of the unit you want".

My conclusions:

1: the site should be adjusted and it should be possible (like it used to be) to book the honeymoon chalets under that exact name.

2: as long as this has not happened, just book a chalet for two persons and than call reception to specify which unit you want (16 a, 16 b or 17, 16 a being my personal fave).

:thumbs_up:
If you are over seas telephoning to the booking service of Sanparks is not exactly the best option!

Thank you for your info Salva and to HoepHoep too :D

What a magnificent position :D I hope you don't have to be on honeymoon to book the honeymoon cabins. Makes me want to go out immediately and find a Mr Fox. :lol: :lol:
