On the west coast of South Africa, you will find beautiful rocky capes and harbours like Cape Town, below the heights of Table Mountain. About one hour to the northwest of Cape Town, and the white sands of the West Coast Peninsula, there is a grand vista of lonely white sands, a long beach of calm surf and peaceful blue skies. This is where the Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel is set, where the waves roll in earshot of your guestrooms.
The luxurious estate of the Strandloper is organically folded into the landscape of the setting, with a riverbed alongside the estate and the bluffs of the shoreline architecturally working with the structure of the building to create shelter, while connecting the residents with the natural world around them. While you stay at the Strandloper, you concierge will be glad to arrange tours of the region, provide scuba gear or water sports equipment and arrange visits to the fishing village of Paternoster. If you prefer to relax in the sun at the hotel, you can relax on the Strandloper’s 20-meter lap pool with sun deck, or stroll through the natural gardens that provide fresh herbs for the kitchens. Fishing expeditions are easy to schedule, and there are several beautiful trails for hiking or biking in the nearby mountains.
