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!
