Weddings in Arniston

Unforgettable, seductive Arniston, where time stands still and whales play in the sheltered bay. The four-star Arniston Hotel is set in the Overberg in one of the Cape’s most exquisite locations next to the old fishing village of Kassiesbaai, which makes for beautiful photographs with its white chalked thatch-roof houses. With the Indian Ocean splashing on your doorstep and white sandy beaches, you couldn’t ask for a more romantic venue.

The hotel offers breathtaking sea views and 60 luxurious rooms, all equipped with comforts of a world-class hotel. The restaurant is well-known for its scrumptious breakfast buffet, delectable and relaxed lunches and fine dinners, complimented by an award-winning wine list which includes the finest local wine producers.
