Perched above one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seascapes, The Marine has much to offer. The hotel is relaxed, intimate and elegant, boasting breathtaking views of sea and mountain, and some of the best land based whale watching in the world. One of 42 bedrooms and suites, all individually decorated, could be your home for however long you decide to stay. And believe me, you'll want to stay! A sparkling, heated courtyard pool and exquisitely manicured gardens were just some of the pleasures that awaited me. I particularly enjoyed the Cachele Beauty Spa where they promised I'd leave feeling revived, uplifted and relaxed. I was!
And when it came to fine dining, it seemed only the finest would do. Plus, the wine cellar at the Marine is completely unique: a floating cellar stocked with the best of South Africa's wines. And did I mention the views?
