About Arabella Hotel & Spa

It may be best known for its championship golf course, rated among the top five in the country, but the Arabella Hotel and Spa offers much more than 18-holes in a spectacular setting.

A short drive from Hermanus, South Africa’s whale watching capital and home to the best land-based whale watching in the world, the 145-room crescent-shaped resort hotel looks out over the Botriver Lagoon, which forms the eastern coastal border of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and is the largest natural lagoon in South Africa.


The rooms at the deluxe hotel in South Africa are designed with the colours and textures of the landscape subtly reflected in every detail, creating a seamless sense of harmony. Contemporary African ocean décor and the finest amenities impart an ambience of superior comfort.

Each room is abundantly endowed with views. Even the bath itself offers an opportunity to soak up the vista. And you may choose the kind of view you wish to gaze out at from your expansive balcony. Either land facing with sweeping aspects of the golf course and the tranquil lagoon, or looking out over the sun drenched pool and immaculately groomed gardens. Careful attention paid to every exquisite detail creates a luxurious, spacious retreat, with beautiful bathrooms to add to your comfort.

Sumptuous bed linen, goose down duvets and pillows and rosewood furniture are a few of the appointments that enhance a sense of indulgence.

Superior communications and entertainment systems facilitate fast, easy contact with the outside world. And yet, reflecting the Arabella Luxury Collection philosophy, a calming ambience conspires in every conceivable way to make the busy outside world feel far removed. As a guest at our five star deluxe hotel, you will enjoy unlimited access to the spa facilities, to heap pleasure on the experience.

The Spa

The Arabella Spa and Wellness Centre, voted as one of the ‘100 best Spas of the World’ provides the full gamut of relaxation and beauty therapies from around the world.

Activities and Attractions

Other activities include horse riding, mountain biking, quad biking, canoeing or a visit to the nearby penguin breeding colony. Of course a firm favourite between June and December is whale watching from the Old Harbour in Hermanus, where Southern Right Whales frolic in the clear water just off the rocks.


Guests have a choice of fine dining in the award-winning Première Restaurant or the Jamani Restaurant, offering contemporary cuisine and the option of eating outside on the terrace. Alternatively they may prefer the relaxed atmosphere of the Laguna Lounge.
Bars include the Laughing Waters Pool Bar at the swimming pool, Barnabas Bar or the sophisticated Cristobal’s Cigar Bar.

Conferences and Events

The unique luxury resort, acclaimed as a leisure destination, is also considered to be one of the Western Cape’s premier event and conference facilities. Conferences, board meetings, team building functions, product launches and social events are arranged with consummate professionalism and catered for in a variety of luxurious, easily configurable venues, all architecturally designed to harness natural light and allow the beauty of the environment to lend a unique ambience to professional and social engagements.

The Kogelberg Centre harnesses spectacular views over the golf course, Botrivier Lagoon and Nature Reserve. With state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, technology and beautiful décor in natural tones, this multi-functional room is appropriate for any type of occasion, presentation or conference. The double-volume space measures 453 square meters and can accommodate up to 400 people (cinema set-up). The room is divisible into 3 smaller private rooms by using the acoustic retractable panels.
