Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat – Clarens

January 18, 2015



A week ago Shane, Nina James and I went to Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat – Clarens for a little break away. We stayed in a luxury self-catering establishment that has some of the best views that I have ever laid my round brown eyes on.

We stayed in one of their one-bedroom cabins, which was so sweetly decorated in such a quirky and fun way. I was so impressed with the way the whole thing was laid out and how much fun they had with the interior. There are three cabins altogether, two one-bedroom units and one three-bedroom one and all of them have their own private decks and jacuzzis which is pretty damn awesome, especially when the sun is going down over these views.





The best part about these little wooden gems is that they cost only R450 per person, per night, which I think is really good especially because you feel like you are surrounded by a painting. The unit we stayed had big open windows, which really allows you to appreciate the views, but don’t worry you can’t see into any of the other cabins because of the way they are situated.

And the owners have thought of everything including as mentioned a private jacuzzis, a braai, a flat screen TV (with selective DSTV channels) and fun interiors, we’re talking matching bulldog lamps on either side of the bed.

The land on which these cabins are built is vast and stretches all the way to the Lesotho border. You are more than to take a stroll on it, or you can take a couple of their mountain bikes to explore their trails if you’re feeling up to it. The other option is just to take in all in while you soak in your private jacuzzi whilst eating a toasted cheese sandwich (our room had a snackwich machine), which is precisely what I did.




We really enjoyed our time at Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat and I would really like it for one of you guys to enjoy a weekend there too. So I chatted to the owners and they were awesome enough to give me a weekend to give away to one of you guys.

All you have to do to enter and get your hands on one of these luxury cabins for any 2 nights of your choice is: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

1. Like Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat on their Facebook page

2. Like Lucky Pony on it’s Facebook page

3. Leave me a comment here or on Facebook telling me who you would take with you for the weekend

If you tweet (@miss_luckypony) or blog about this giveaway, you gain another entry but you need to let me know in your comment so I can include you twice.

I’ll be picking a winner this Friday the 23rd of January. You will be able to choose which 2 nights you want to stay, subject to availability. Transport to the venue is not included in the prize. Good luck.

    This has been a busy time for me. Trying to complete my masters dissertation while building a business as a photographer. I’m away from home most weekends, thesising during the day, and editing at night. But I have a sweetheart of a man who never complains, pours me wine without asking, asks how my shoots are going over whatsapp, and each time I falter or start to doubt – tells me that I can do it.

    I’d love to take this guy for a weekend away with no weddings, no work, no thesis. Just us.

    With out a doubt, I’d take my friend who is studying to be a landscaper. This place is surreal, and would be such an inspiring setting for sketching, reading, or studying. I’m currently studying to be a yoga instructor, and a ‘get-out-of-Cape-Town free card’ is just what my practice and studies need.

    She is a country girl at heart, and grew up in a small mountain village in the north of Portugal as a child, so I know she would just love this beautiful spot. She always tells me all her amazing stories of farm animals and riverside picnics, so I think it would be an amazing treat for her and a chance to spend some quality time with her at this beautiful retreat.

I’ve learned that one should always make quality time for your wife or husband and never loose focus on each other’s needs. I committed to spend one weekend a month with my lovely wife in 2015, away from the kids and everyday distractions. Well its either I win this weekend giveaway at this wonderful place or go camping somewhere. My wish – to take the mother of my children, my gorgeous wife with me to Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat .

    I would take my husband. We did not have a honymoon due to family’s fighting with one another on ouer wedding day. We are married for 13 years and for 6 years he worked away from home he’s only been back in SA for the past 2 years after he was retrenched our marriage had its ups and downs but we love one another more then ever because we got trough bad times and only got stronger. I would love to have our honymoon we never had and show him how much I love him.

    Would love to take my 2 sons for a weekend as all 3 of us had to work over the Christmas period and for them to experience the beautiful outdoors.

    My new hubby and I actuallynlooked at Omega to go on our really small honeymoon a few weeks ago and tbey were our first choice but unfortunagely were fully booked and we couldn’t go. Unfortunately he has gone back to the USA and I now have to be alone for a month before I can see him again, so now he won’t be able to see Omega’s beauty. I would however like to take my amazing mommy. I will be IMMIGRATING to the USA in a month and she is really holding back her tears and is supporting me every step of the way. It would be great if we can have a weekend just mom and daughter before I leave.

    Even though I’m in Cape Town, I’d LOVE TO win this for my parents, who do so much for me. They deserve a break and I can’t think of a better place for them to get away and relax for a bit.

    Hey, wow looks amazing! Well I would take my hubby as it’s the first time we are returning to SA in 2 years and we have missed the beautiful countryside so much. Not only that but its my 30th birthday AND we are pregnant. 3 wonderful reasons to enjoy this place!! We haven’t had a holiday together in years and this would be a great break!

    […] I’d like to get for Mother’s Day this year and then I remembered our awesome trip to Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat in Clarens just over a year ago. It was honestly one of the best weekends I’ve ever spent out […]

    I would take my husband to this amazingly, beautiful place. We have been trying to fall pregnant for 3 years and found out 3 months ago that the IVF we went through was unsuccessful. The whole process was incredibly stressful on both of us and I think a getaway like this, with its breathtaking views, would do us both a lot of good with reconnecting and healing.
