What do past clients say about this destination?


We booked a family suite at Abalone Lodge in Hermanus and I found out that this is in fact a rare marine species called ‘Perlemoen’ in the local Afrikaans language! So we all ate breakfasts on the terrace every morning and then walked along the path along the cliffs to watch the whales in the bay. We saw the Southern Right in what looked like a family group! My teenage kids also loved the spa treatments and the time to put our feet up and stare at the sea all day! I will return one day I hope.
