Cape Town – The Marine, a member of the Liz McGrath Collection, is one of South Africa’s most spectacular seaside hotels.

Located on Hermanus’s famous cliff path, overlooking the breathtaking Walker Bay, the hotel offers visitors the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world from June to November each year.

Guests are even able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their own sea-view room. The Overberg region is also a must for adventure-sport seekers, offering a host of activities, including hiking, mountain biking and marine sports.

Back at the hotel, guests can indulge in exceptional culinary delights, overseen by award-winning group executive chef Peter Tempelhoff. The day starts with breakfast at the elegant 1920s-style Pavilion restaurant, followed by lunch and dinner at the vibrant Origins, where guests can expect relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern, kitchen-focused restaurant.

The soulful menu highlights everyday favourites prepared with an Asian twist by head chef Tronette Dippenaar and her team.

The Sun Lounge & Bar meanwhile is the perfect spot for high tea and sundowners.

The 40 elegantly appointed rooms and suites at the Marine include 10 luxury doubles with a sea view and 10 premier suites. Both categories are perfectly positioned for watching pods of dolphins and whales as they swim in the bay below.

Guests may take a refreshing dip in the pool, located in the hotel’s tranquil courtyard, or in the tidal pool, which can be accessed from the cliff path.

Further relaxation can be found in the serene surroundings of the Carchele Beauty Spa, offering a range of wellness facilities and bespoke signature treatments.

Other facilities at the Marine include the Collection Boutique, where guests can peruse a selection of precious items from acclaimed South African designers.
