The Marine Hermanus is perched on the clifftops above the whale-rich Walker Bay.
The five star Marine Hermanus is located on a cliff overlooking Walker Bay, boasting magnificent mountain scenery and unforgettable sunset views. Walker Bay and the other bays off this coastline offer the finest-land based whale watching available on a luxury tour of South Africa. Between the months of June and November, the southern right whale and other species migrate thousands of kilometers from the frigid Southern Ocean to give birth in these waters.
The hotel houses 40 individually decorated rooms accented in crisp whites and summery blues, blending timeless elegance with the captivating drama of the surrounding coastline. Though each room may have its own distinguishable stamp, the level of luxury and impeccable style is maintained throughout the hotel.
Attention to detail and personal service characterize a stay at the Marine Hermanus. The experience is further enhanced by the incredible gastronomic fare on offer, overseen by Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef Peter Tempelhoff. In your leisure time, sip on sundowners in the aptly named Sun Lounge or opt for a pampering treatment at the Carchele Beauty Spa.
The Marine Hermanus offers the finest accommodation in South Africa's Overberg region. I have received rave reviews from clients of African Sky who stayed at this hotel. Their comments have always been favorable, both in terms of the quality of rooms and service as well as Hermanus being a destination not to be missed when planning a tour of South Africa. Though I have never stayed at the Marine Hermanus, I have enjoyed meals there on numerous occasions and I am a frequent visitor to Hermanus. I highly recommend a visit to Hermanus and a stay at the Marine.Read More
