WIN! A luxury seaside stay for two in Plett or Hermanus worth R31 000 (CLOSED)

Posted by Lauren Dold on 18 October 2021


Each of the three iconic hotels within the Liz McGrath Collection boasts a unique location, mesmerising history, splendid design and amenities, and services second to none. As proud members of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, The Cellars-Hohenort in Cape Town, The Marine in Hermanus and The Plettenberg share the inimitable style of their creator, the late Liz McGrath, and her passion for décor, food and gardening. The three hotels have a proud culture of impeccable hospitality, extending a warm welcome to all, including families with children.


The Marine is an iconic landmark in the charming seaside town of Hermanus. Located on the cliff path, the hotel overlooks Walker Bay, famous for some of the finest land-based whale watching in the world. It has been beautifully renovated to offer modern facilities without losing its old-world charm, offering 40 elegantly appointed rooms and suites.

The unique location of the Marine, within walking distance of many of Hermanus’ attractions – including pristine beaches, the tidal pool, restaurants and art galleries – is one of its greatest assets. The surrounding Overberg region provides a range of activities for adventure seekers, including hiking, mountain biking and marine sports, as well as easy access to the Hemel-en-Aarde valley wine estates, which produce some of the best wines in South Africa.

Back at the hotel, guests can relax at the swimming pool, enjoy a spa treatment, or indulge in delicious culinary delights, overseen by executive chef Rudi Blaauw. These range from breakfast at the Pavilion restaurant to lunch and dinner at Origins at The Marine. High Tea and sundowners are served in the Sun Lounge & Bar.


A playground for many who return to the Garden Route every year, Plettenberg Bay is known for its sweeping golden beaches and the iconic Robberg Peninsula. It’s famous for its towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers, as well as the burgeoning Plett wine route.

The Plettenberg is arguably the best address in Plett, situated on a rocky headland with some of the most breathtaking vistas in Southern Africa. The hotel has direct beach access and views of the ocean, mountains and endless stretches of golden beaches. It features 37 beautifully appointed guest rooms, including 12 suites and two spectacular villas with private swimming pools. Diners can enjoy Chef Kyle Macaskill’s world-class cuisine that includes delicious, fresh seafood dishes as they soak up the endless sea views. The Sandbar is the perfect spot for pre- or post-dinner drinks, as well as signature cocktails throughout the day. Relax at one of two pools with stunning sea views, or on the Sun Lounge & Terrace, before getting pampered at the Fresh Wellness Spa.
