The spirit of The Thatch House

Cocooned between the ancient Cape Fold Mountains and the sparkling waters of the Hermanus Lagoon, The Thatch House is the perfect holiday for travellers in search of solitude and absolute exclusivity. This luxurious villa consists of four beautiful family suites and two luxury garden suites, each offering a flat-screen digital television, complimentary Wi-Fi connection, 100% percale linen, an extra-length king-size bed and a separate dressing room. Large ensuite bathrooms come with heated towel rails and separate toilets and bidets. All suites open up to a private terrace with picturesque views of either the lagoon, the garden or the mountains.
Guests have the choice of cooking for themselves in the beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen, or having a qualified chef take care of all their culinary needs. From sumptuous breakfasts around the pool and picnics baskets on the beach, to delectable high teas and candlelit three-course dinners, meals are created to fit your personal requirements. Two pools, a golf putting green, a tennis court, a jungle gym treehouse, a games room and kayaks to explore the lagoon; ensure there’s plenty to do and experience at the villa. There’s also whale watching, shark cage diving, spectacular hiking trails, art galleries and vineyards in the charming seaside town of Hermanus nearby.
