2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel has won the World Luxury Hotel Awards for the best Luxury Boutique Hotel in Africa! If you are looking for an unspoiled ocean getaway, it doesn’t get better than the exclusive new Strandloper Ocean. Hidden away on the shores of the unspoiled fishing village of Paternoster, only 90 minutes from Cape Town, this is a coastal destination with immeasurable charm. The 14 exquisite rooms and suites are a fusion of beach style and contemporary luxury; with organic lines, hues and textures and an overall feeling of simplicity. Each has its own terrace or courtyard, some with small splash pools, and wide doors that open out onto breathtaking views of sky, sand, sea and space. Take the time to simply be, or if you are feeling more adventurous, set off on an endless beach walk in search of whales and dolphins, hop onto a bicycle for a leisurely ride or take to the waves on a kayak. Paternoster is a seafood Mecca, a gourmet destination for travelers in search of the ultimate meal. A romantic venue for couples, honeymooners or anyone looking for some special me-time, the Strandloper Ocean offers the best of West Coast hospitality and fuss-free luxury.

Where to start.... First and foremost, this beautiful boutique hotel is made even more special by the incredible, friendly staff. Sbu and his team were exceptional. Every single person we encountered were friendly, helpful and always smiling. The accommodation itself is wonderful - returning in the evening after dinner on a cold autumn night to a warm fire, candles and special home-baked treats was the perfect way to settle in. Views of the ocean from our private deck were so special. My sister and I were there with our Mom to celebrate her 80th - the staff were amazing to her, making her feel so incredibly special. Leeto dinner is a MUST. And breakfasts are exceptional. For a wonderful getaway from the madness of the city, I highly recommend The Strandloper and will absolutely be back with my husband in the future.

We stayed at the Strandloper Ocean Boutique as part of our honeymoon trip up the West Coast of SA, and we could not have had a better stay with them. From the moment we arrived to when we were packed off to the airport with a breakfast package in the car, they thought of every detail, and made sure we felt like their top guests. What an incredible spot, with the most amazing views for dinner at their restaurant - Leeto - which had some of the best food we ate in Paternoster. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone staying there, and would definitely go back.

Attention to detail was superb. Service informally excellent. By that I mean there was no obvious fussing as to our needs, just very efficient service when required. Coming back from dinner was a pleasure completed by welcoming fire and hot water bottles as evenings were chilly. Proximity to beach allowed long walks in sunshine. Sun on our terrace allowed delightful room service breakfast and lunch. Spa treatments excellent and being driven and collected to outside restaurants an added bonus.

We were there for 4th time and enjoyed the comfortable bright rooms, the courteous friendly staff, the excellent cuisine, especially with the freshest oysters, mussels and fishdishes, a wonderful breakfast, spa und pool. The location is right on the beautyful beach with dunes and fynbosh. Just 90 minutes drive from Cape Town Airport is it the best relaxed start for holdays in SA with a peaceful time strolling along the beach.

A beautiful place to stay right on the beach. Tucked away in its only little cove at the end of all the properties overlooking Paternoster beach each of the rooms has a an outside space opening on to the sand but it’s cleverly arranged so your outside space still has privacy from the next door room. Our room was spacious and elegantly but simply furnished, lots of use of glass with bifold doors opening on to our terrace with the most comfortable lounger ever and a table and chairs, great bathroom with big walk in shower and concrete bath and polished concrete floor and walls. Lovely restaurant serving good food. The staff were all super hospitable, professional but friendly. A great find!

Enjoyed our short stay. Fabulous beaches and Leeto food was extremely good. Staff were excellent and were always keen to help. Thought the rooms were tired and the pool was also not great for a 5 star hotel.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing the beautiful Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel as your destination of choice and for sharing your experience with us and fellow travellers. I am very pleased that you recognised our high level of service. We have a very passionate and dedicated team who work consistently hard to make sure each and every guest has a memorable experience with us. It is most rewarding to read that you did. It saddened me to read that you felt that your room looked tired and that our heated swimming pool – 20 metres in length and the largest swimming pool in Paternoster – did not meet your expectations. We are always looking for ways in which we can enhance our hotel and has taken your feedback on board in an effort to ensure that every guest has a truly magical stay with us. Thank you again for staying with us, we look forward to your next visit. Warm regards from Paternoster, Abraham and the Strandloper Ocean team
