Hmm, something went wrong... would you mind trying again?

Arabella Golf Club

In 1998, the golf course opened to the public, and it has since become a firm favourite. By moving a significant volume of earth, Matkovich was able to route the golf course around the shores of Bot River Lagoon, providing not only aesthetic satisfaction, but also adding to the charm and challenge.

At approximately 7,000 yards, Arabella is a stern test, but is by no means unmanageable for the average resort guest. The manicured fairways and greens are a stunning juxtaposition to the rough wasteland areas that Matkovich left as a reminder of the course's foundations. The architect has succeeded in perfectly assimilating his golf course into the surroundings, and has also succeeded in presenting Arabella with one of South Africa's premier golf courses.

Accommodation at Arabella Hotel & Spa

The Arabella Country Estate forms the basis of one of South Africa's most desirable golf, leisure and spa holiday destinations. As a member of the illustrious Starwood Luxury Collection, the Arabella Western Cape is a phenomenal complex that marries the astounding natural setting with the ultimate facilities.

The rating at Arabella is five star deluxe, an award which is evident throughout the hotel's guest rooms. The concept in the hotel is to reflect the colours, ambience and atmosphere of the hotel's surroundings, which include the Kogelberg Nature Reserve. The fittings and furnishings are magnificent, and are complemented by all the facilities and amenities that you could hope for.

The astonishing quality of the hotel's fixtures is mirrored in the exemplary levels of service that underpin the Arabella experience; no stone is left unturned in the quest to make this Starwood flagship part of the world's elite.

At the AltiraSPA complex, the true essences of relaxation and pampering are subtly meshed to produce an internationally renowned spa centre, utilising a unique fusion of eastern and western techniques. Tennis, massages, and much more add to the total relaxation package at the super deluxe Arabella property.

The culinary options at Arabella are all but inexhaustible; a personal recommendation is the Premier Restaurant, whose fine dining is matched by the views of the lagoon.

In the evening, head to Cristobal's Cigar Lounge to relax in the most refined surroundings.
