Relax in Hermanus, the "Riviera of the South"

As with the shellfish delicacy after which it is named, Abalone Lodge is something to savour. From its perch on the scenic ocean front of Hermanus, sometimes referred to as the “Riviera of the South”, guests can take in unsurpassed views of sea and mountains while enjoying four-star comfort.

Found on Siever’s Point, a landmark between the town centre and the sublime blue flag beaches, the lodge is an excellent base from which to enjoy the town and its surrounds. The adventurous may choose among a range of activities, from shark cage diving to paragliding, while others can explore the fynbos with a hike. Hermanus’s famous cliff path, making it the best land-based whale watching destination worldwide, runs right past the guest house – just step off the spacious verandah and you’re there. For more laid-back recreation head to the beach or consider wine tasting.

Retreat to one of the spacious rooms which invitingly combine soft neutral hues with natural textures and original South African artworks. Each is individually decorated and features a balcony boasting panoramic views along with luxurious amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi. At mealtimes, indulge in fine dining crafted by the on-site culinary team and served by attentive staff.
