Perched on top of the cliffs at Hermanus, The Marine has one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seascapes. The Marine has 42 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, each with its own private facilities. 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 and take in our breath taking views of the Hermanus Bay. 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!
Doubles Rooms These standard twin and double-bedded rooms offer the same exceptional style in décor as is found in the décor of the suites and luxury double rooms. None of these rooms offer a sea view, although a number offer a partial sea view. Fourteen of the rooms include a balcony, these varying in size. Eight magnificently and individually decorated suites all have varied views of the sea. The biggest of these suites features a large Georgian style bay window, and is on two levels, which includes a spacious seating area downstairs with picture windows overlooking Walker Bay. Two of these suites have balconies, whilst five occupy a split-level and two have a working fireplace.
The Pavilion at The Marine is relaxed and informal, but with an understated elegance. The view of the sea is exceptional and adds another dimension to the dining experience. During the months of June to December diners can view the whales from their table. It serves an array of the highest quality dishes with hints of the Mediterranean and the East that highlight the creative talents of a superb culinary team. The Pavilion is open for dinner five nights a week, Tuesday through Saturday, open every morning for breakfast and closed for dinner during winter from mid April to mid August. The magnificent wall and ceiling lamps in this elegant restaurant are the originals which once graced the Bathing Pavilion at Muizenberg. Liz McGrath's inspiration for Seafood at The Marine came about after a chance visit to the seafood counter at Harrods in London. Seafood is a bright restaurant in the modern idiom.
The style is informal and busy, with the emphasis on the freshness of the fish from Walker Bay, great style and friendly service. The open kitchen, with its young talented chefs, provides diners with a close-up view of the frenetic activity. The Seafood is modern yet has a relaxed feel to it. The new floating glass wall panel with a wave design and beautiful lighting is a feature of The Seafood. The restaurant is warm, sophisticated, personalized and inviting. Subtle warm lighting, bold graphic pots, black and white photography, floating bulkhead, wave designed glass screen, glass sculpture all add up to a visual feast to pre-empt the culinary feast. The Seafood at the Marine, is open daily for lunch and dinner. The Sun Lounge On entering the hotel, guests can enjoy enticing views of the sea and the warm inviting lounge. The vast expanse of Walker Bay is drawn into the reception area, bringing light and amplifying the space. A sophisticated cocktail bar and a lounge is available for both hotel residents and local visitors to relax and enjoy the view.
