Strandloper Ocean Boutique

Cape Town & Western Cape

Rating: Deluxe    

Strandloper Ocean Boutique overview

The Strandloper Ocean Boutique is a privately owned hotel on the edge of the quaint West Coast fishing village of Paternoster in the Western Cape. It's just 120km north of Cape Town but a world away. The atmosphere is one of laid back luxury and the hotel has direct access to an 8km stretch of pristine beachfront and it also overlooks a small peaceful nature reserve.

There are just 14 rooms, each uniquely decorated. The rooms vary in size and have either a sea view, enclosed courtyard or they overlook the neighbouring nature reserve. The interiors are a blend of beach organic and luxury, with locally made furniture and fittings and a good use of natural materials such as stone and wood. Designed to blur the lines between indoors and out are high ceilings and a terrace or courtyard with large sliding doors opening onto the distinct West Coast landscape.  The light, bright rooms feature king size beds, open-plan bathrooms with a shower and bath or a shower only. Extra touches include a heated towel rail, hairdryer, satellite TV, DVD player, iPod docking station, fully stocked mini bar,  and a coffee and tea station.

The main areas consist of a small reception area, a wellness suite and a 20m lap pool with an attractive sundeck. There's butler service and scrumptious breakfasts are served each morning using fresh, seasonal ingredients, eaten in the Ocean Lounge or out on the terrace with magnificent sea views. The hotel also serves light lunches and delicious evening meals, dinners are a delightful home-grown gourmet experience with a local twist.

Don't let the laid back feel of the hotel fool you, there is plenty to do here if you wish, alternatively you can relax and soak up the magnificent sea views.  There are hiking trails to explore, beach walks a plenty or grab a mountain bike and explore further afield. July to December means whale watching, you could see dolphins too. Kayaking to a penguin colony is another popular activity. That's not all, there are some wonderful shops to visit, an art gallery and craft markets too, and the West Coast National Park is nearby with more to discover.
