The Marine

The small coastal town of Hermanus along the Western Cape south coast is known for its spectacular whale watching (June to September), and for the prime viewing location visitors look no further than the elegant Marine Hotel which sits atop the magnificent cliffs of Walker Bay overlooking where the whales like to play. But the whales aren’t the only draw card of this magnificent Relais & Chateaux property.

Home to 43 luxurious and tastefully decorated suites and rooms, some with exquisite ocean views, the boutique hotel offers guests ultimate comfort. The in-house Carchele Beauty Spa promises to relax and revitalise weary travellers (with the Sea Salt Scrub Exfoliation being a top treatment to try). The heated courtyard swimming pool, surrounded by pretty manicured gardens, provides guests with the opportunity to indulge in some much-needed time out with a waiter on hand to take drinks and lunch orders.

There’s also the private tidal pool where guests can cool off and hopefully catch a closer glimpse of the whales; they even have the choice of enjoying a blissful massage in nature. With executive chef Peter Tempelhoff in charge of the restaurants at the hotel – Cuisine Seafood, The Pavilion and Seafood Express – guests are guaranteed to experience world-class cuisine, notably fresh seafood straight from the bay.

There are many varied activities and sights in and around Hermanus and The Marine is the perfect central location. For those who like to take in the gorgeous natural surrounds, there’s a golf course within walking distance as well as a cliff path hike among the natural fynbos. Guests can also enjoy a swim in the warm sea, take in the warm African sunshine on one of the beautiful beaches, peruse the local wares at the weekend market, go waterskiing on the lagoon, and of course, spot the magnificent whales in the bay during peak season.

After a busy day, guests enjoy nothing more than returning to the warm hospitality of The Marine and unwinding with a drink in hand in the recently refurbished Sun Lounge while watching the sun set over the ocean.

The intimate and inviting atmosphere of The Marine has ensured its long-standing success, with both local and foreign guests continually returning for a taste of the luxury and comfort they have come to expect.
