Romantic honeymoons to create everlasting memories
Our three ‘Liz McGrath Collection’ properties offer the most wonderful settings to celebrate your honeymoon – the most exciting phase of your new life together.
The Marine, The Cellars-Hohenort and The Plettenberg present wonderful honeymoon options for both overseas and local couples. Although unique in design and offering, what combines these three properties is the legacy of the formidable Liz McGrath, who imbued each one of them with an unmistakable sense of style. Whichever hotel you choose, you can expect the most breathtaking of locations, combined with plush interiors, world-class cuisine, impeccable service and warm, welcoming staff who will cater to your every need. From romantic turndowns and indulgent couple’s spa treatments, to refreshing outdoor picnics and intimate private or in-room dining, we will do our utmost to make your honeymoon unforgettable.
The Marine is renowned as one of South Africa’s most spectacular seaside hotels. High up on the cliffs of Walker Bay in Hermanus, this unforgettable property overlooks the country’s most pristine whale sanctuary and offers honeymooners the thrilling opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world – from the comfort of their room. For the ultimate honeymoon accommodation, book our Honeymoon Suite, which features a romantic loft bedroom and large bay windows with magnificent sea views. You can further enjoy sundowners in the Sun Lounge, savour fresh culinary creations at Origins Restaurant, and be pampered in our Carchele Beauty Spa.
The Cellars-Hohenort is located in ‘Cape Town’s Vineyard’ on the slopes of the famous Table Mountain. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and devote a few nights to celebrating your new life. Here you can take leisurely strolls through our beautiful gardens, enjoy exclusive dinners in Peter Tempelhoff’s award-winning restaurant Greenhouse, book romantic couples packages at the Fresh Wellness Spa, and plan delectable wine farm excursions to the magnificent Constantia Valley. There are many options to choose from accommodation-wise, but our recommended honeymoon suite is the private Madiba Villa, which is secreted away in our manicured gardens.
The Plettenberg is situated in the tropical seaside setting of Plettenberg Bay along the Garden Route. This rugged peninsula boasts golden beaches, dense green forests, unrivalled scenery and year-round temperate climate – making it a wonderful honeymoon destination no matter the season. During your first stay as Mr & Mrs, relax in the Fresh Wellness Spa, take a dip in the cooling pool, sip cocktails at The Sandbar and tuck into exquisite seafood dishes at SeaFood at The Plettenberg. Then retire to one of our individually designed guest rooms and suites, offering seemingly endless Indian Ocean views and the ultimate in seaside luxury.
