Sophistication - not ostentation - awaits at Birkenhead House and Villas, an exquisite boutique hotel on South Africa's southern coast.

Walk into Hermanus along the cliff's edge before getting a lift back in time for lunch by the pool.
Birkenhead House and Villas sit atop a promontory in the South African town of Hermanus, an appropriate location if ever there was one. With its diverse array of activities, renowned cuisine and stunning views, Birkenhead is a cut above the rest.

You'll find no overwrought gestures toward the modern here. Instead, visitors are treated to a classic aesthetic informed by simple palettes and antique furniture. Birkenhead House and Villas' owners wisely allow the great outdoors to provide the bells and whistles, with activities that run the gamut from hikes on nearby mountain trails to deep-sea fishing, whale watching to shark-cage diving.

Locally sourced culinary creations, prepared by Birkenhead's resident chef, include homemade breads, tempura strawberries, and fresh fish. The cuisine is a mixture of modern African and traditional French, with heavy Asian and Italian influences.

Birkenhead staff will serve your meal just about anywhere, but meals are best enjoyed outdoors overlooking the ocean.
