Showing those we love how much we care about them has taken on even greater importance during this pandemic. These times have taught us to truly treasure special moments and nowhere is more special Sandton Central to celebrate Valentine’s day.
In the past, you may have considered Valentine’s Day a rather cheesy affair, but this year it has taken on a new meaning. The prolonged stress and worry of nearly 11 months of lockdown have taken its toll on our personal connections, communication and romance. Getting out in safe, social-distanced settings is a great way to escape online fatigue, home-schooling and the many pressures weighing on us all.
“Traditions give us something to look forward to. They are a source of happiness and celebrating them can be a shot in the arm for your mood and attitude. This year, Valentine’s Day is a perfect opportunity to invest in your relationship. It is an opportunity to surprise, do something new, rediscover old favourites, and enjoy a much-needed change from dreary lockdown routines,” says Elaine Jack, City Improvement District Manager of Sandton Central Management District (SCMD).
Gathering in big groups is a no-no, but fortunately a safe outing for two is still on the cards - and the definitive destination for Valentine’s Day is Sandton Central.
Setting the scene for love, Sandton Central’s restaurants and hotels are going above and beyond to ensure excellent safety measures for wellbeing. The city’s finest restaurants and hotels are pulling out all the stops to create the ideal environment for love and romance. Some are doing so over an extended period to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to share the love. What is more, you can now raise a glass for a romantic toast while you celebrate.
Jack also reminds us that, “This year, Valentine’s Day isn’t only a time to show love, but also to express appreciation and extend gratitude. Why not give the ultimate gift of a Sandton Central experience to one of the many people among your family, friends and community who deserve to feel special and appreciated?”
