The Marine Hermanus

Hermanus, South Africa

Part of the South Africa Safari & African Safari Collection

The Marine is one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seaside Relais & Châteaux properties.

Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus' Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 42 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 view room. The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of this remarkable owner managed property - from the personal service to the exceptional cuisine which is overseen by The Collection by Liz McGrath's Grand Chef, Peter Tempelhoff, the perfect-for-sundowners Sun Lounge and the in-house Carchele Beauty Spa.

Each piece of The Marine story adds another element to an unforgettable stay.
