You might have been to Hawaii, but have you been to Mossel Bay, a bustling holiday resort town along the famed Garden Route in South Africa? Mossel Bay has one of the mildest all-year climates in the world and is a perfect holiday destination in both summer and winter.

The Point Hotel overlooks the indomitable Indian Ocean and is perched on the rocks above a natural rock pool. This four-star hotel along the Garden Route comprises 49 sea-facing rooms, each with their own private balcony with incredible sea views. From your balcony, you’ll be able to enjoy an unsurpassed view of the Humpback or Southern Right Whales passing, as well as schools of exuberant dolphins.

Each room is fully modernised, with Wi-Fi, international plug points, satellite TV, and pure luxury. The hotel is also fully paraplegic friendly and all floors are fitted with hydraulic lifts.

The Point Hotel in Mossel Bay should be a stop-off point on your tours and travels in South Africa.
