Spa at Arabella

The Spa & Wellness Centre is arguably the best spa in South Africa, having just been refined to the very highest standards. It offers a vast choice of invigorating, relaxing or indulgent treatments in its world-class facilities. These include balneotherapy, regenerative body and facial treatments and the world's first sensory water and steam treatment facility - the African Rainforest Experience. Relax in the Hammam centre in its sauna, steam room, sensation showers, Jacuzzi and breathtaking Rassoul chamber, or float to underwater music in the brine pool, or the hydro-pool. We strongly recommend that you pre-book any treatment at the Spa to avoid disappointment.


The Arabella Golf Estate overlooks the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, a mass of over 1,200 species of wild flowers and fynbos. The sweeping grandeur of the mountains and lagoon backdrop, complements the design of this 18-hole championship golf course.

Arabella offers you a choice of two restaurants. The Premiere restaurant offers exquisite and finely presented cuisine and wine, whilst the Jumani restaurant offers more relaxed dining and is ideal for families. There's a stylish and modern piano bar, a richly appointed cigar lounge, library and outside is a large swimming pool. As well as the spa and golf course, other activities include mountain biking, bird watching, horse riding and whale-watching in Hermanus.

Wonderful golf course

"Arabella – wonderful golf course and well organised golf. Good hotel rooms but very let down by the dining room. Nothing wrong with the food but dreadful dull decor especially in the evenings when the florescent lights were on, felt like eating in a cafeteria . "
