About an hour and a half’s drive from Cape Town, you will find this superb 5 star hotel and golf course. The Arabella Hotel and Spa is the perfect place to relax and unwind after sight seeing in Cape Town. Don’t be put off by the imposing facade, inside you will find an oasis of style and tranquility. The glass fronted public areas and bedrooms give stunning views out across the lagoon and towards the distant Atlantic Ocean. Arabella is a popular stop off for golfers exploring the Garden Route and Cape Town courses. It is featured in several of our South Africa golf holidays, including our Garden Route Golf Itinerary.
The good-sized outdoor pool has lots of space for sun bathing or relaxing and is serviced by its own pool bar. Adjacent to the pool is a children’s club with indoor and activities which caters for children of 5-12 years unaccompanied, and younger children if with a parent or nanny.

Rooms at Arabella Hotel
A total of 145 bedrooms offer exceptional accommodation designed to make your stay comfortable, convenient and pleasurable. All of the rooms are either pool or lagoon facing and have a private balcony. The rooms are spacious, equipped with wifi and entertainment systems, giving guests a luxurious retreat as well as efficient contact with the rest of the world – should you need it!
The open-kitchen, Jamani Buffet Restaurant offers contemporary but informal dining. There are plenty of dishes to choose from, including South African cuisine such as Springbok and Ostrich. There is also the Jumani A La Carte Restaurant which offers a true reflection of South Africa’s love affair with food and wine focusing on the best locally sourced ingredients. This is an elegant and upmarket dining experience with breathtaking sunset views of the lagoon and golf course.
There is also a cafe bar in the main mezzanine level and a large bar where snacks are served.
Voted South Africa’s top spa, the Arabella spa offers visitors the opportunity to relax & recharge the batteries. The treatment centre draws from healing philosophies the world over to create an atmosphere of tranquil calm, surrounding guests with stunning views and beautiful décor. There is also a small indoor pool, sauna and steam room for the use of guests.
For our golfing clients, it is just a couple of levels down in the lift to the club house complex, where you will find the pro shop, 19th hole and changing rooms. The Arabella course is a favourite of our staff, and if you can drag yourself out of bed early on your holiday, we urge to play an early morning round – it is simply magnificent with the morning mist rising off the lagoon.
