Arabella Hotel & Spa

Hermanus, South Africa

Escape to the Western Cape


A gateway to the sprawling vineyards of Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, the Arabella Hotel & Spa in Hermanus overlooks one of the best rated golf courses in South Africa, as well as a rare, protected wildlife reserve.

Taking inspiration from the verdant and epic natural landscape of the African continent, the hotel’s unique Arabella Spa is home to the world’s very first African Rainforest Experience, a water and steam treatment, making use of African products and techniques. Hermanus’ location on the Western Cape is also a popular roaming spot for marine life of all varieties, but most spectacularly, whales. The Hermanus Whale Festival, held every September, attracts over 100,000 people every year. Those keen to rise above sea level are also in luck, as the area is also home to the highest zipline in the Southern hemisphere.
