Local, Travel

your next getaway is a mystery


The chance to succumb to the spontaneous urge to escape to a local destination, to jump in your car and follow the road, has just become a reality with the launch of Secret Getaway - a South African online accommodation booking platform with a mysterious twist.

Secret Getaway lets you judge the proverbial book by its cover in the most delightfully unapologetic way. How it works is that members browse images of the available rooms and facilities, view the star grading and explore amenities without knowing the name of the hotel. The name remains a surprise until the booking has been confirmed. So the adventure begins before you even leave your desk. What's more is that rates are exclusive and special discounts are made available to Secret Getaway members.

This dynamic business model, allows Secret Getaways to capitilise on empty rooms at cost-effective rates. This means that brand conscious hotels can retain their exclusive reputation by not publicly offering a discounted rate whilst members stand the chance of getting a one-of-kind, exclusive offer for some of the most iconic hotels in their city and surrounds.

If the fear of not knowing is too much, members can select one of the revealed hotels or villas available. This unique concept puts the thrill back into discovering new places – and offers members the opportunity to uncover hotels they may never have considered before. Where will you go next?
