Absolute Beach Top 50 - 2014

What a year!!! This was incredibly busy, not to mention jammed-packed full of huge changes for the team. We opened additional rooms, found out we were pregnant and even opened up a new establishment in Stellenbosch...exciting times. Here is an assortment of images that stood out for us and which, we think, captured the spirit of the year.
