A beautiful clifftop retreat on South Africa’s rugged Hermanus coast

Look out over Walker Bay from The Marine and you’ll soon see why this boutique beachside retreat is so special. You might see waves crashing against the rocks below or get to watch the sun set over the shimmering ocean. But if you come during June and December, you may also get a glimpse of the Southern Right Whales from the comfort of your room.

Even if you’re not here during whale-watching season, the hotel – from the bright, airy suites to the touches of blue in the decor – makes the very most of its incredible coastal location. Executive chef Tronette Dippenaar draws on fresh local produce from the Overberg region in the soulful Origins restaurant. And then there’s the full-service Carchele Beauty Spa, perfect for an indulgent massage or rejuvenating facial.

This is a seaside haven with a history, too. Discover the museums, art galleries and quirky bookshops in nearby Hermanus. The Fernkloof Nature Reserve is ideal for plant enthusiasts, hikers and family picnics, and places like Grotto Beach are great if you have little ones in tow. But chances are that whale watching is going to be top of your agenda. Get closer to these gentle giants, as well as seals, dolphins and penguins, on a boat tour from Hermanus. Or see it all from above with a magnificent flight over the bay. 

Enjoy your stay!

The tale of the whale...

Hermanus is famous for being the place to see the Southern Right Whale, which comes to the warm waters of Walker Bay between June and December. The Marine’s stunning clifftop location puts you right in their territory. Spy the gentle giants from your room or the beautiful clifftop walk right outside the hotel. Or head out onto the high seas for a chance to get closer to these magnificent creatures. The hotel is also the perfect place to glimpse dolphins, seals and the African penguin. If you’re feeling brave enough to tick off the entire Big Five, ask the staff about cage-diving with Great White Sharks. 

From land and sea…

The Overberg is a region of plenty – and this is something The Marine chefs celebrate every day. The menu in the spacious Origins restaurant showcases the very best of what this beautiful slice of South Africa has to offer, from just-caught seafood to world-class Hermanus wines. Swap tales of seaside adventures over small sharing plates before choosing dishes from “Hunted” and “Gathered.” If you’re after something lighter, the “Shoots, Stems & Leaves” section promises delicious salads using seasonal produce. Then round off your meal with something sweet or with a taste of the region’s artisanal cheeses.

Food And Drinks

Start your day in the elegant 1920s-style Pavilion, which serves a buffet breakfast every morning. Then, at lunch and dinner, watch your food being prepared by chefs in the Origins kitchen. Championing local Overberg produce and the art of sharing food, the menu offers everything from tapas to regional cheeses. In between, sit back in The Sun Lounge & Bar and enjoy drinks with breath-taking views of Walker Bay.


Served Meals: Lunch, Dinner At our vibrant Origins at The Marine restaurant guests can expect relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern kitchen-focused restaurant. The soulful menu highlights everyday favourites. The spacious dining room allows guests to observe the chefs in their element in the open kitchen while a separate restaurant section with magnificent ocean views is perfect for small group bookings.

The Pavilion

Served Meals: Breakfast The Pavilion serves as the picturesque breakfast room at The Marine. The restaurant features an edgy black-and-white decor reminiscent of the roaring 1920s allowing guests to start their day in the most elegant of ways. Guests can sit inside or take their pick from two al fresco options either in our courtyard by the pool or on the outside pavilion overlooking Walker Bay.


Though it would be hard not to feel invigorated by the ocean breeze alone at The Marine, its spa is truly revitalising. Recharge with a Black Pearl facial or a couples’ massage if romance is in the air. Or, if you fancy a swim, choose from two saltwater pools – one in the hotel grounds, the other a unique marine ‘tidal’ pool just above the ocean.
