 Cocoon with ocean vistas

The Marine Views

The Marine offers some of the best whale-watching vistas in the world thanks to its sea-scraping position. Winter is, of course, the season to make the most of them, whether from your sea view room, the heated saltwater swimming pool, the restaurant, or from the delightful sun lounge over afternoon tea or sundowners. The Pavilion Restaurant, presided over by chef Oelof Vorster (previously of Le Chene and La Petite Colombe in Franschhoek), doles out delightful seasonal dishes in accessible à la carte style, including vegetarian dishes and an additional vegan small plates menu.
