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. Incorporated in the design is a small area dedicated to the Seafood Express One Plate Cafe.

Wine Cellar

The Wine Cellar at The Marine is completely unique and is the central feature of The Pavilion Restaurant. It is a floating cellar stocked with the best of South Africa's wines with an emphasis on the wines from the Walker Bay region.

Heated Salt Water Pool

The heated swimming pool is salt-chlorinated. Towels are provided for use around the pool area and an outside shower is available. During the day a waiter is on hand to cater to your every need, and to assist you with lunch and cocktail orders.

Tidal Pool

Having travelled to Hermanus, you must definitely swim in the sea! Directly in front of the hotel is a tidal pool, where you can swim as close to 100m away from the whales. The Hotel can supply you with towels and picnic, and there are toilets and an outdoor shower available.

The Pavilion at The Marine

The Pavilion at The Marine is relaxed and informal, but with an understated elegance. The decor is fresh and sophisticated, using rich cream and other natural shades to enhance the restaurant's ambience. 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 to Saturday) and open every morning for breakfast. The magnificent wall and ceiling lamps in this elegant restaurant are the originals which once graced the Bathing Pavilion at Muizenberg.

Seafood at the Marine

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, personalised 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.
