African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa

African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa


So, off I set on Friday afternoon, leaving around 14h30 hoping to miss the long weekend traffic. The journey to Kleinmond started well with the Stellenbosch mountains being covered in snow and the ocean a beautiful blue. This relaxing drive soon turned into bumper to bumper traffic for most of the way.

However, on arriving at the African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa, the drive and all its traffic was soon forgotten. The views from both sides of the hotel are just beautiful. My grand deluxe room looked over the lake and all the way down to the ocean. My room was large and comfortable and the bed was very inviting after a long day; however, I had to head off on my site inspection. The conference facilities are fantastic and really offer something for every conference request.

The pool and pool deck area are great for the warm summer months and has a bar for those lazy afternoon cocktails after a long day of exploring the Hemel en Aarde valley, famous for their many wines.

Dinner and breakfast were taken in Jamani restaurant which is spacious and welcoming. For a buffet dinner I delighted in the ‘all you can eat’ sushi buffet followed by a wide selection of different dishes; they really do cater for all tastes.

I would definitely recommend it for any conference group, large or small, due to its proximity to both Cape Town International Airport as well as the famous coastal town of Hermanus.
