Two South African hotels have made it into a prestigious list of the world's most romantic hotels.
The hotels were named in TripAdvisor's Top 25 Hotels For Romance list, which is part of their 2016 Travelers' Choice Awards.
The awards are based on millions of user reviews - with the romance category focusing on reviews marked as couples' stays. The list was announced just in time for Valentine's Day.
The title of most romantic hotel in the world went to Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort in Aruba. Hotels from the UK, Greece and Thailand also made the list.
However two South African hotels appeared in the top 25 list.
The Akademie Street Boutique Hotel and Guest House was awarded 18th place in the list. The five-star hotel is located in Franschhoek - a romantic gem in the Western Cape. The Cape Dutch retreat offers a range of accommodation types, including suites and cottages.
