Situated 160km north of Cape Town, Paternoster has its own distinctive beauty, with its unspoilt shimmering white beaches, rocky outcrops, turquoise waters of the Atlantic and indigenous fynbos. Whitewashed fishermen's houses, blue shutters, colourful fishing boats scattered on the beach and boat masts tinkling in the breeze create an idyllic setting for this unique Boutique Hotel. A 90-minute drive from Cape Town, Abalone House & Spa offers city-weary dwellers and discerning travellers an unashamedly opulent beachside escape, where extravagance and guest comforts take precedence. Set amid indigenous gardens, an air of quirky decadence pervades this sophisticated haven with its ten luxurious suites. Lavishly designed with luxurious bohemian decor by Cape Town interior designer David Strauss, Abalone House & Spa delights with its grandeur, eclectic visual tapestry and divine cuisine. The Hotel offers two villas which are almost identical, and each sleeps two couples or a family of four. The Villas are spacious with an en-suite bedroom with king beds, both bedrooms lead on to the patio and pool. One of the rooms has a private balcony with 180-degree sea views. The main living area has comfortable couches, with Persian carpets, and oversized Tretchikoff prints on the walls. There is a coffee pod machine in each room, and complimentary WiFi throughout, an indoor fireplace, along with a Smart TV and Netflix. The glass stack doors can be completely folded back, to allow indoor-outdoor living around the pool and braai area. There is also an outdoor shower. A number of restaurants are within a walking distance but there is a fully equipped kitchen in each villa. The villas are serviced each morning, and turn downs are done in the evenings. Both units have off-road parking and villa number one has a complimentary lock-up garage with an inter-leading door to the villa.
