Value
Blue Whale Resort offers fully equipped self-catering chalets, with abundant space between units that are perfect for social distancing requirements. The Private Nature Reserve, located on the seafront, is only 10km from George central, 13km from George Airport, and only 6km from the N2. Whales can be seen during winter months and dolphins year-round from the comfort of your veranda. It is also one of the best fishing spots in the area and numerous fish species can be caught from the rock beach. Herold's Bay and Victoria Bay are approximately 12 & 18 km away and offer safe bathing. A variety of indigenous birdlife can be observed while walking/cycling on the short hiking trails through indigenous forests and fynbos. The ten chalets are identical, 8 with a beautiful sea view and a nice privately situated setting and 2 chalets situated a little further from the ocean and the rest of the chalets - ideal for large families and also usually less expensive than the other 8 chalets. The chalets and conference facilities are built on 10 hectares of land, zoned as a private nature reserve.

The place to go for a complete recharge. Quiet, peaceful, private with a beautiful view. The back ground noise of the see is a natural tranquilizer. It is close to everything. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

Excellent location. Very nice accommodation. Highly recommendable baring one draw back. The walks along the shore would be breath taking if it were not for the rubbish which was widespread across the rocks. I am confident this is not discarded waste by residents - more likely fisherman, but it sadly detracts from the experience and we feel the resort needs to arrange for a regular clean up of the environment. Then this would be a truly 5 star get away.

Very pleasant short stay over the weekend. Very clean and excellent view. Booking handle on short notice without any problems. Only small negative was the dirt road extending York Steet to the entrance - although that was fairly smooth. Very peaceful and secure. Would visit again when in George😊

A beautiful place to chill and de-stress. The chalets are clean and neat and the view is out of this world. Wifi was very intermittent but who needs the outside world with a view this great. Just remember to take your own Beach Towels.

It was wonderful to stay with you. The cottages are well equipped and the beds good quality. It is lovely quiet inside nature and natural vegetation. It was lovely to sleep with the sound of the sea. I will definitely stay with you again.
