Les Baleines 5 Star

from £123 per room night



Set in the Overberg, South Africa’s Western Cape, and capital of whale –watching, Les Baleines is an elegant hotel of a bygone era, with plenty of decks and terraces where you can relax and soak up the sun and the fabulous sea views – and of course, watch out for those whales.


Les Baleines has four types of rooms and Suites, all elegantly furnished in a palette of creams and fresh blues and whites. The Superior en-suite opens on to a private balcony, while the Deluxe ensuite have calming views of the mountains, and the Suite opens on to the pool deck. The Whale unit, which is located in the Annex, has its own entrance. With two bedrooms, and a large private veranda. All the rooms have TV, safe, air conditioning, ridges, a writing desk with Les Baleines stationery, two comfortable chairs, ottomans and beautiful objet d’art. The sumptuous wood and stone Bathrooms have separate baths and shows, underfloor heating, bathrobes and slippers, hairdryers and shaving outlets.


As well as the outdoor pool and sunbathing deck, there is a library for guests to browse in, and a full-size billiards room. Whalewatching is the main purpose of the hotel, and as well as opportunities to spot them from the pool deck and terraces, the hotel can arrange whale- and dolphin-watching trips as well as a host of other activities, from shark cage diving, to quad biking, cycling, riding, cooking, surfing, golf, drumming sessions, township tours, and aerial tours. If there’s anything you want to do, it can be arranged.


Meals are served in the main dining area on the ground floor, while the Marlin Bar is adjacent to the pool area, and provides the perfect spot for whale-watching with a few cocktails.
