Here you will discover why Hermanus offers the best land-based whale watching in the world!

Tuck into our indulgent breakfasts, whilst watching early morning golfers making their way onto the 25th green. Later, grab some towels and head off to one of our famous beaches, or just laze around our sun-drenched courtyard. Or sip a sundowner from your vantage point in the Rocky Lounge, next to a crackling, open fireplace, watching the shadows lengthen on the fairway as another perfect day draws to an end in Hermanus.

Idyllically situated in the Cape Winelands, this peaceful country retreat is one of the oldest towns in South Africa.

They found it in the fertile valley of Franschhoek and this heritage is showcased at the fascinating Huguenot Memorial Museum. The Cape Dutch architecture in much of the village remains remarkably well preserved as restrictions have been placed on the extent of renovations and new construction in order to preserve the spirit of the original settlers. The town’s proximity to Cape Town allows for pleasant day trips during which visitors can explore the area’s many world-class wine estates and impressive range of excellent restaurants or simply browse the quaint, upmarket boutiques strewn along the town’s lovely tree-lined avenues.
