Situated right on the seafront, The Marine Hermanus Hotel offers one of the most beautiful and natural landscapes. Perched on top of cliffs overlooking Walker Bay, The Marine boasts breath-taking views extending across Western Capes and beyond, with the best land-based whale watching in the world during whale season. Located only 90minutes from Cape Town International Airport and Cape Town city centre and Table Mountain slightly further away, Hermanus is easily accessible with great tourist attractions nearby with several scenic towns within close distance, including Dyer Island and Betty’s Bay.
With 42 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, The Marine ensures the highest standard of style and luxury. All rooms include private facilities and views extending over Walker Bay or the courtyard and Overberg Mountains. Double Rooms offer partial sea-views, with several rooms having their own private balcony, whilst the Luxury Double Room include sitting areas and a select few feature shared patios overlooking mountains. Other rooms include the suites and premier suites with upgrades including separate lounges, spacious areas, private flat screen TV and beautifully appointed rooms.
Two restaurants at The Marine offer two very different styles of food, both featuring award winning cuisine. ‘Seafood at the Marine’ has an informal atmosphere, with an emphasis on fresh fish and style within the kitchen theatre. ‘The Marine Pavilion Restaurant’ serves a range of high-quality dishes with hints of Mediterranean and the East, whilst boasting glorious sea-views through the internal courtyard.
A heated courtyard pool and white sandy beaches offer the perfect opportunity to catch some African sun, whilst the Carchele Health and Beauty Spa hosts an array of treatments to revive, purify and relax the body and soul. The Marine Hermanus also features a golf club, reading room and the orangery-perfect location for cocktails or afternoon tea.
