Les Baleines Hermanus

Luxurious comfort in coastal Hermanus

Les Baleines has an enviable location nestled between the Overburg Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated in the heart of South Africa's whale watching area, Les Baleines [French for 'whales'] is a small family-run guesthouse offering stylish accommodation and stunning views.

Whale watching and shark diving excursions can be booked for you locally, ensuring your stay here is as exciting as it is memorable. Back at the hotel, bask in the sunshine on the deck with a drink from the Marlin bar, take a cooling dip in the swimming pool and admire the views over the ocean and the Hermanus mountains. 

Please call one of our Destination Specialists for more information on our full selection of hotels, or for inspiration and advice on creating a personalised South Africa itinerary.

Short Break

Wokingham, United Kingdom

My wife and I stayed at this b&b for one night. Only one word describes this accommodation 'Fabulous'. We were made very welcome and upgraded to an impressive bedroom, very large with views over the ocean. Breakfast was fantastic, I'm putting on weight just thinking about it. Recommended.

Fantastic boutique hotel with attentive owner

Leeds, United Kingdom

The accommodation is superb and the attention from the owner equally attentive. We went to whale watch and the owner had pre-booked a trip for us in case we hadn't thought of it in advance and they get full up near the sailing date. Each room was well provided for and the availability of a glass of sherry in the room may have been quaint but was really delicious. The hotel has a great if small pool, a games room, reading room and pool/billiards table freely available for guests. I recommend you take the hostess suggestions for places to eat as she is well versed in what's available. Breakfast was excellent and there was lots of it! Altogether a luxury and sophisticated venue at which to stay.
