Whale Sanctuary Lodge

41–43 Cliff St.
De Kelders, 7220, South Africa
TEL: 27 28 384 2806

The whale-centric property is set on a cliff above Walker Bay, where you can spot orcas, southern rights, and humpbacks out at sea. A private balcony juts over the water in each of the six suites, which have white marble floors, dark leather furnishings, and Ngoni cowhide mats. The Orca suite is the biggest (700 square feet) and has the best views, with two walls made entirely of glass. There is a slightly rocky beach below the lodge, but there are 15 miles of deserted golden sand just a five-minute drive away in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve. The hotel can arrange cage-diving among great white sharks, from the nearby town of Kleinbaai.
