Overview of The Marine Hermanus

The Marine is a gracious Relais & Chateaux property set up high against the cliffs overlooking Walker Bay in Hermanus. Just a 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, this 40-room hotel offers not only some of South Africa’s top cuisine but also fantastic whale viewing from about July to September.

Lying in the heart of this popular seaside town, The Marine is close to the central buzz of shops, cafes and restaurants. Relax at the Carchele Beauty Spa, drink in the sunshine at the secluded, heated swimming pool or enjoy cocktails in the Sun Lounge before savouring dinner, which is overseen by Relais & Chateaux grand chef Peter Tempelhoff.

      Dining

      The Pavilion offers some of the finest dining in Hermanus and the menus is inspired by the bounty of the local Overberg. Combining the best South African ingredients with hints of the Mediterranean and the East, Relais & Chateaux grand chef Peter Tempelhoff has been showered with both local and international accolades and awards, and the wholly enchanting dining experiences that he creates are certainly not to be missed.

      Inspired by Harrod’s renowned seafood counter, the hotel’s other restaurant – Origins – has a warm and inviting atmosphere, is stylishly decorated, and serves ocean-fresh, sustainable seafood. Indulge in playful dishes accompanied by a crisp wine white from the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

      For a relaxing drink, visit the Sun Lounge – a stylish cocktail bar and lounge – or simply choose a bottle of wine from the floating wine cellar, stocked with some of South Africa’s best wines, to enjoy in your room or suite. The Sun Lounge has lovely views of the surrounding cliffs and Walker Bay.

        Hermanus is beautiful. Great whale watching, nice hotel, spacious room!

        We had a fantastic time and everything worked out fantastically. Loved every single place we visited!!!!!!! (and we were quite lucky with the weather too).

        Nice sleepy town, and shark diving was great. We didn’t have the best of luck with the sharks because apparently the water is very cold in the summer (who knew?), but it was still a thrilling adventure. I wonder if it might have been easier for us to just stay in Cape Town and go on the excursion. It did work out well, however, as we found the Marine hotel absolutely lovely, and we were only there for 2 nights.

        One of the best hotels I have stayed in. We had rooms on the ground floor, facing the sea. View was amazing. Food was very, very good. More importantly, the service, and the care taken by the staff to ensure myself and my family were comfortable, was unbelievable.
