About The Marine Hermanus
Perched on top of the cliffs at Hermanus, The Marine has one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seascapes. Commanding views extend across Walker Bay or over the beautiful internal courtyard, finely manicured gardens and the Overberg Mountains.
Stroll along the cliff-hugging path to the golf club and view the miles of white sandy beach beyond. The sparkling, heated courtyard pool might beckon, perfect for catching some African sun or sip a glass of local wine in The Sun Lounge with nothing between you and the South Pole, other than 3,000 miles of ocean. Hermanus offers some of the best land-based whale watching in the world and at The Marine you don't even have to get out of bed to experience these amazing creatures.
The Marine has 50 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, each with its own private facilities.
The Double Rooms at The Marine all offer the signature decor and uncompromising style for which the hotel is known. Some of the rooms even open out onto private balconies. Each of the Double Rooms offers an en-suite bathroom as well as air-conditioning and under-floor heating.
Luxury Double Rooms with Sea View
The Luxury Double Rooms with Sea View are perfectly positioned for watching pods of dolphins and whales as they swim in the bay below. The panoramic views over Walker Bay have inspired the decor of each of the rooms. A comfortable seating area and spacious en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and under-floor heating throughout, make for ultimate comfort.
The individually decorated Premier Suites at The Marine each offer a view over the expansive ocean vista surrounding the hotel. Two of the Premier Suites offer guests views from private balconies. Each Premier Suite encompasses a separate lounge with flat-screen television and DVD player. Satellite TV channels and Wi-Fi are also available. A beautifully decorated bedroom with en-suite bathroom is made all the more comfortable with air-conditioning and under-floor heating throughout. Two of the Premier Suites include a fireplace..
Origins at The Marine
At Origins we look back to look forward. We look back to The Khoisan, our First People, to run a restaurant that brings the joy of food, telling the story of our region’s culture, cuisine and ingredients on every plate.
Simply put, local and seasonal produce taste better. They’re part of the region’s fabric, they provide us with what the body needs season to season. We source foods that preserve green space and reduce environmental impact, as the land will not be ours forever. We source locally to support our community, because, just as the Khoisan understood, there is nothing more communal than a meal shared, a meal savoured together.
The Sun Lounge
Overlooking the incredible Walker Bay, The Sun Lounge at The Marine in Hermanus is the ideal spot to enjoy drinks and snacks while searching the waters for resident and visiting marine life. The warm and inviting colour scheme here will not only tempts guests and visitors alike, but also provides a comfortable setting to while away a few hours.
Heated Salt Water Swimming Pool
The heated swimming pool is salt-chlorinated. Towels are provided for use around the pool area and an outside shower is available. During the day a waiter is on hand to cater to your every need, and to assist you with lunch and cocktail orders.
Having travelled to Hermanus, you must definitely swim in the sea! Directly in front of the hotel is a tidal pool, where you can swim as close to 100m away from the whales. The hotel can supply you with towels and picnic, and there are toilets and an outdoor shower available.
