Secret Sunrise | PJ Party Edition


This morning we hit snooze, hit snooze again, and then finally rolled out of bed, put on our slippers and headed to Katy’s Palace a little earlier than usual. Kramerville has never been so packed at 5:45am with fellow Secret Sunrisers kitted out in the best sleepwear and collection of onesies we have ever seen, all geared up and ready for an early morning pajama party. The vibe was electric. Picture 400 people with wireless earphones, dancing their hearts out to a themed/loosely choreographed routine. This is your moment to go a little crazy, let your inner child loose and connect with whoever you happen to meet while “sleep walking”. Take your earphones off for a moment and true to form, it is… silent! (Except for the odd person who can’t help but let out an excited yelp or laugh!)

Secret Masquerade


The Secret Masquerade is a charity gala in support of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre taking place across South Africa throughout 2016.

The first gala was held at Katy’s last Friday. Our palace was transformed into an African masquerade complete with fire breathers, African dancers, a stilt walker and our incredible musical headliner Tresor!

A huge thank you to our partner Secret Eats  and all who attended – the event raised over R36,000 for the centre.

Here’s a peak into the Secret Eats Murder Mystery dinner and Secret Masquerade!

Mexican Fiesta | Katy’s Sunday Lunch


Katy’s Sunday Lunches have become a legendary, monthly meeting, where friends and family collect for good food, live music, skyline views and African sunsets.

We decided to mix things up in February and throw a Mexican Fiesta to launch Katy’s Sunday Lunches for 2016! Can you say… arrribbbaaaa! Talk about tequila taking over your usual Sunday siesta! We couldn’t help dancing off our Corona, tacos, chili con carne and lamb barbacoa when Tona (possibly the world’s greatest Mariachi band) started playing.

If you missed out, or if you joined in, it’s time to rewind into our Mexican Fiesta!
