Hideaways' Review
Drama is a fact of life at this remote getaway. Overlooking the largest natural lagoon in all of Africa, and smack dab in the center of a 275-acre coastal amphitheater of seductive beauty, the hotel and its guests are routinely treated to sensational shows of changing light, wildlife, and natural beauty. Located in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, the Arabella gives you ample opportunity through hiking, kayaking, and guided nature walks (or simply sitting, refreshment in hand, on your expansive balcony) to observe South Africa's fynbos (scrubland), bird life, and exquisite mountain landscapes. This sumptuous setting is matched only by the hotel's internationally acclaimed service and attention to detail. Serious golfers will be enthralled by the championship golf course—host to the Nelson Mandela Invitational for four years running—with its wilderness backdrop. Spa fans will delight in the Arabella Spa's signature African Rainforest Experience, a divine assemblage of therapeutic showers, scrubs, steam treatments, and local fragrances. And children will adore the natural setting of the waterfall-adorned outdoor pools.

Eventually, you'll want to relax in the Premiere Restaurant to dine on Sumac-and-Honey-Roasted Ostrich or Asian Coconut Laksa, or witness the chef's culinary skills in the open kitchen at Jamani Restaurant. After all that fresh air, exercise, and fine dining, you'll be more than happy to retire to your spacious room or suite, with its contemporary African decor of calming colors and textures, down duvets, and rosewood furniture. And if you can't get enough of the stunning vista from your balcony or terrace, you can always soak up some more by rolling back the partition wall and taking a bath al fresco (did we mention the view?).
