The Marine

Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus’ Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 40 individually-decorated bedrooms and suites. This unforgettable property overlooks South Africa’s most pristine whale sanctuary offering guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world.

From June to November guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea view room. The hotel also features a perfect-for-sundowners Sun Lounge and an in-house Carchele Beauty Spa.

The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of this remarkable property – from the personal service to the exceptional cuisine which is overseen by an award-winning Executive Chef.

Why we like it here

Spectacular views overlooking the breathtaking Walker Bay.

The best bed-based whale watching in town.

Things to be aware of

The cliff path (which is public) is eye-level with the ground-floor rooms and public spaces; it runs rather close to the hotel, so privacy is somewhat compromised.
