South Africa Holiday Specials -The Marine in Hermanus is a luxury 5 star hotel situated overlooking the ocean and with a prime view of the whales in season.

The Marine luxury hotel in Hermanus
Famous for whale watching, beaches and nature, as well as its food and wine, Hermanus really is a destination that ticks all the boxes: its palpable history, thriving art scene, boutique shopping and busy program of festivals, concerts and events.
The area around Hermanus, known as the Overberg, is an area of natural contrasts, from the deep green apple orchards of Elgin to the sweeping canola fields of Caledon, and the rugged mountainous coast where marine life flourishes. The natural surroundings are at once diverse and awe-inspiring – and lovers of the outdoors are spoilt for choice with activities.
The Marine is one of the southern hemisphere’s most spectacular sea-side Relais & Châteaux properties. Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus’s Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites.

This unforgettable property overlooks South Africa’s most pristine whale sanctuary, and it is just a stone’s throw from one of the greatest densities of the endangered Great White Shark and selection of fynbos species in the Cape. The Marine offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world. From June to September guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea-facing bedroom.

The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of this remarkable owner managed property – from the personal service to the exceptional cuisine, the 'perfect for sundowners' Sun Lounge and the in-house Carchele Beauty Spa.
