Whale's Way is a stunning ocean-front retreat where you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Enjoy the spectacular ocean and mountain views and watch whales and dolphins from your bedroom. Most of the rooms have ocean views, TV, DVD and CD player. The style is light and open-plan with a natural elegance. The Penthouse rooms are particularly luxurious and decadent, perfect for those who appreciate the best of everything. Relax in the jacuzzi overlooking the Indian Ocean, walk along the deserted beach, enjoy a breathtaking sunset and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Many fine golf courses nearby. Close proximity to activities such as canoeing, paragliding, horse riding and more. Award-winning restaurants close by.

We loved our time at Whales Way - Benji and Ralph were warm and welcoming hosts. They were full of great suggestions to enjoy a variety of experiences in the local area that are unique and off the beaten track so we could have a fuller experience of the Wilderness area. We will be back!

Stunning accommodation with views over the ocean and the Wilderness valley. The extras, like fresh fruit, were an added bonus. Lovely owners too - I really cannot fault the place! We only stayed for one night, and wish we could've stayed longer.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Whales Way. + Hosts are friendly and welcoming. Our host, Benji, was super helpful. Surprised with a bottle of bubbly for our anniversary. Breakfast is great. A great place to chill and relax Fantastic views of the ocean and waves are worth the price. Room is clean and tidy. We stayed in the Skye Penthouse Suite - I’f you’re traveling when it’s cold, come prepared. It gets pretty cold in the room at night.

great location, great service and great food. The views are just stunning. The property is in need of a little maintenance though but I am sure this will be sorted this winter as there is a lot of time now.
