Keep your guests cosy this winter
The Danish call it Hygge. While it can’t be translated into just one word, it’s a concept of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying simple pleasures. If you’ve ever curled up in a big, comfy chair in front of a fire, with a good book and a cup of coffee in hand while the rain pours down outside, you’ve felt it.
As the temperatures begin to drop in the run-up to winter, there’s no better time to invoke a sense of hygge at your establishment as guests plan their getaways for the colder months. We’ve partnered with iconic Ouma Rusks to showcase different ways to bring a sense of cosy contentment to your hotel or lodge, because there’s nothing that South Africans love more than the simple pleasure of dunking a rusk.
Ouma Rusks is giving you a chance to win R 1000 cash when you buy a case of Ouma Singles Rusks
Ouma Rusk comfort and convenience
Did you know that Ouma Rusks are available in individually wrapped portions? It’s now easier than ever to stock your breakfast buffet, in-room and reception tea and coffee stations with the ever-popular buttermilk and muesli variantss. With a shelf-life of 10 months, wastage and portion control are easy to manage, and your guests will love the easy access to this familiar brand with its distinctly crunchy texture.
Hot Drink Moments
Whether your guests are enjoying a pick-me-up morning beverage, or a quiet afternoon tea, take this opportunity to revitalise your hot beverage menu. How about a decadent hot chocolate, made with real chocolate? Or a specialty coffee with a caramel syrup? Or a range of herbal teas and infusions, with warm spices or autumnal fruits? Give your guests a full range of tantalising choices to dunk their Ouma Rusk into and savour that hot drink moment.
Hot Water Bottles & Blankets
There’s nothing better than a morning or evening game drive, but it can get awfully cold on the open-air vehicle. Make sure to prep hot water bottles and knee blankets for each of the guests so they can stay nice and snuggly while viewing your reserve’s gorgeous surrounds.
When it’s wet outside
If your part of South Africa gets winter rains, why not place wellington boots and umbrellas by the door? This will encourage your guests to get out and explore the grounds, before returning to the warmth of their room, or the hotel library, to curl up with a good book.
Make sure there’s loads of throws and cushions on the couches in communal spaces and in your guest rooms. In your library, lounge or communal outside area, keep a basket filled with curled up blankets for guests to grab when they’re feeling chilly.
A gorgeous fireplace is more than just a warmth-bringer – it’s a focal point. Make sure your chimneys are clear of debris before you start the winter season, stock up on sustainable wood, and keep those fires roaring throughout the day.
