Grootbos - Hermanus - South Africa


An eco-luxury gem nestled in between whale watching capital Hermanus and Great White Shark capital, with separate divisions for families and couples, as well as a deluxe 6-room villa with breathtaking views for (extended) families or small groups.

The owners are deeply committed to the local community and have invested in innovative cross-cultural sports facilities, train and certify young adults in horticulture, and have a large organic garden in which they employ local people, and which supplies much of the restaurants’ needs.

You can go on a “flower-safari” in open top 4WD vehicles – fynbos is fascinating and dominates the landscape, go horse riding (all ability levels catered for), hike, picnic at the beach, and also learn about how Grootbos uplifts the local community. You can spot whales from June to November The rooms are gorgeous, tastefully designed, with sun-soaked decks overlooking the gorgeous Walker Bay.

he food is very good too, with fresh organic ingredients, creatively presented, with regular dishes and new daily items to indulge in. Naturally the wine selection is excellent.
