About Arniston Hotel

The Arniston Spa Hotel is set in one of the Cape’s most exquisite locations, next to an old fishing village, surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves. The luxurious 4 Star Arniston Spa Hotel is internationally known as one of the world’s great getaways. Touched by the spray from the Indian Ocean, we welcome you with panoramic views of the unspoilt ocean and endless beaches.

The luxurious 60 en-suite rooms are all elegantly decorated with the comforts of a world-class hotel. Most rooms have fireplaces for those cosy winter evenings. Our deluxe sea-facing rooms have private balconies with panoramic ocean views. The patio-facing rooms open onto a tranquil garden and swimming pool with sun loungers.

Unforgettable, seductive Arniston, where time stands still and whales play in the sheltered bay. You may just want to relax to the rhythm of the sea or you may want to swim, fish or snorkel at one of our safe and unspoilt beaches. There are many beautiful hikes on endless shores and dunes. An abundance of natural life makes bird-watching a pleasure. And each year from June to November, the Southern Right whales make Arniston Bay their home, delighting visitors with excellent whale watching.

We offer full conference facilities with state-of-the-art equipment for up to 100 delegates. Because of our location, the Arniston Spa Hotel is a romantic wedding venue that can cater for all your special needs.

Our exclusive wine cellar is a cosy venue that can host up to 34 people for a memorable dining experience. We provide 4 Star service and a wide choice from our excellent restaurants. Less than two hours from Cape Town, you will find at The Arniston Hotel a friendly relaxed atmosphere and a beach hotel with a style of its own.

This was our first time at the Arniston Hotel and it took us completely by surprise. We were expecting a homely, comfortable hotel but it was far more than that. Our room was big, beautifully appointed and immaculate and the sea view from the second floor was simply magnificent. The friendly staff, well stocked bar and lovely restaurant added to our enjoyment. We feel we enjoyed a couple of days or real luxury at what was an excellent price, albeit at the tail end of winter.With very little in the way of shops or restaurants outside of the hotel you would be concerned that the hotel would take...

What a pleasure to stay at this hotel. The staff are all friendly and very efficient. The hotel is in the most beautiful setting, overlooking the bay in Arniston. It has a relaxed seaside feel to it. The hotel has complimentary  bicycles for their guests to use, A wonderful way to see Arniston. The room also has complimentary Sherry for its guests. Every night you get a little card to tell you the time of low tide, so that you can time your walk to a beautiful sea cave called Waenhuiskrans Cave. Arniston is paradise for nature lovers and people who want peace and tranquility. We will definitel...

Arniston, Waenhuiskrans or Kassiesbaai? In reality all three names apply to this multi-faceted gem of a Southern Overberg coastal town. Arniston is a true mixture of, not only name, but many other things too. The name Arniston commemorates an 1815...

Arniston Beach

Picturesque Arniston Beach is typified by soft undulating sand dunes in stark contrast with dark jagged cliffs. This pretty area in the Overberg is a sought after destination for artists and photographers, and the entire fishing village is one of...
