The travel industry might be open for business during lockdown level 2 in South Africa, but many families may still want to err on the side of caution and put off any travel plans, at least for the time being. But, just because you’re not planning a fancy getaway any time soon doesn’t mean you can’t experience that holiday feeling at home with a luxury-themed staycation.
Some of the things we love about staying in a fancy hotel or B&B are relatively easy to replicate at home. Whether you love the comfortable beds, luxury bathroom amenities, or the mini and room service, you can live the hotel life at home by bringing these elements into your home.
The Bedroom: Invest in hotel quality bed linen
Nothing says holiday luxury quite like the feel of freshly laundered high-quality sheets. Invest in high thread count bed linen and pillowcases in classic white for your bedroom and every day will feel like a holiday. For added luxury pop a mini chocolate on your pillow each night.

The Bathroom: Create a mini spa experience
Whether you love the bathroom amenities in your hotel room or the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel spa, you can create your own mini hotel bathroom or spa experience in your bathroom at home.
Ditch the family-sized economy shampoos and replace them with miniatures of your favourite indulgence toiletries. Include some essential oils for relaxation and a selection of face masks and treatments. Lastly, add fluffy bathrobe, slippers and your own fluffy laundered towels to add to the feeling of luxury.

Mini Bar: Stock up on hotel-sized treats
Love the mini bar in hotel rooms? Create your own mini bar at home with a cooler box or bar fridge in your room. Fill it with a selection of your favourite luxury bar snacks and nibbles along with mini spirits and mixers and set aside a dedicated cocktail hour after work to kick off your evening in style.
