Most beautiful, relaxing experience. Amazing food and great service. The whole place has such a “untouched” and authentic feel to it. Staff are laid back and attentive to every little detail, which was impressive. The jacuzzi for sunset is a must!

We had such a lovely stay here and highly recommend it. Paternoster is a lovely town with lots of personality. The staff were amazing and the Pool Villa in which we stayed was absolutely beautiful and fantastic.

About
Description
Abalone House & Spa offers five star luxuries with serious seaside appeal, where extravagance and guest comforts take precedence. Feast at the bistro-style Reuben's at Abalone House, celebrity chef Reuben More Riffel's West Coast offering that elevates this Paternoster destination to a new level of luxury escapism. The Healing Earth Spa offers ancient African traditions of healing and energy where pampering and rejuvenation await. Echoing the vibrant decadence of boutique Abalone House & Spa, is the Abalone Pool Villas which epitomize the finest self-catering accommodation in the village – with a butler in attendance to serve a full English or Continental breakfast in suite. The two Pool Villas are virtually identical and each sleeps two couples or a family of four. Less
