Hotel Review

Overlooking the Bot River Lagoon and within easy reach of the coastal towns of Hermanus and Pringle Bay, yet just a 90 minute drive from Cape Town airport, Arabella Hotel Golf & Spa is well placed to say the least. All rooms are of a good size, whilst the suites feature smart separate living areas plus hot tub baths with a view. Modern in style with neutral palettes decor features traditional accents such as sheepskin throws and indigenous woods. With either a lagoon or sea vista to choose from you won't be left in a room without a view! A veritable feast is served each morning for breakfast and much of the food is locally sourced (we love the "Fynbos' honey). Jamani restaurant provides the usual South African favourites (plenty of red meat and grills) with a modern twist. Whilst the food is tasty, the menu, along with the wine, is overpriced by local standards. In keeping with the local custom, the service could be improved upon! There are however plenty of excellent eateries in the area, so you are not limited to having all your meals here. The spa is divine - a must visit - and much better value for money. Try The African Rain Forest experience or simply spend an afternoon letting off some steam... in the steam room. Enjoy an utterly picturesque round on the golf course whilst the little ones are enjoying themselves at the kid's club. In short: an indulgent country estate getaway.
