Arniston is a leisurely two-hour drive from Cape Town, on a road that meanders through the beautiful rolling hills of the Overberg region. The Arniston Spa Hotel is set in one of the Cape's most exquisite locations, next to an old fishing village, surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves. The luxurious 4-star Arniston Spa Hotel is internationally known as one of the world’s great getaways. Touched by the spray from the Indian Ocean, we welcome you with panoramic views of the unspoilt ocean and endless beaches.

Blessed with an abundance of sea life, the hotel promises delicious oysters from nearby shores and the freshest fish from the local fishing boats. Our sophisticated menu blends traditional South African cuisine with modern innovations from renowned chefs. Your culinary treat is complemented by an award-winning list of wines, many of which are from the local wine routes. We offer a breakfast buffet that is a delicious spread of traditional and healthy foods.

Our large bar area has big-screen televisions and two unique large aquariums inhabited by local sea fish.

The bar top is also a living fish tank.

The luxurious 60 en-suite rooms are all elegantly decorated with the comforts of a world-class hotel. Most rooms have fireplaces for those cosy winter evenings. Our deluxe sea-facing rooms have private balconies with panoramic ocean views. The patio-facing rooms open onto a tranquil garden and swimming pool with sun loungers.

Unforgettable, seductive Arniston, where time stands still and whales play in the sheltered bay. You may just want to relax to the rhythm of the sea or you may want to swim, fish or snorkel at one of our safe and unspoilt beaches. There are many beautiful hikes on endless shores and dunes. An abundance of natural life makes bird-watching a pleasure. And each year from June to November, the Southern Right whales make Arniston Bay their home, delighting visitors with excellent whale watching.

There is much to do around Arniston. Bredasdorp is only 15 minutes away and offers an excellent golf course, squash and tennis courts and a world famous shipwreck museum. De Mond Nature Reserve is a pristine, unspoilt river mouth less than 20 minutes drive away. De Hoop Nature Reserve is nearby and with all its wildlife, is definitely worth a visit. Cape Agulhas National Park is an ideal day trip. Here, you should also visit the lighthouse at the southernmost tip of Africa.

Our exclusive wine cellar is a cosy venue that can host up to 34 people for a memorable dining experience. We provide 4-star service and a wide choice from our excellent restaurants.

We offer full conference facilities with state-of-the-art equipment for up to 100 delegates.

Because of our location, the Arniston Spa Hotel is a romantic wedding venue that can cater for all your special needs.

The friendly and relaxed Arniston Spa Hotel has a unique character all of its own.
