We are not often going out to restaurants … I mean, there is a husband that loves the inside of our kitchen (and his food is good too)!
But when a special person is celebrating her birthday (my mom), we decided it’s a good time to enjoy a night out … at a special place.
The Shark Bay Hotel & Spa in Langebaan probably has THE best view in town to enjoy a meal. It is situated on the edge of the lagoon which provides lovely views … on a clear day (like this specific day we were there), you can actually see the well-known Table Mountain a 100km away!
While Berto ordered a whiskey and my mom a glass of red wine, I enjoyed a glass of gin (produced locally).
The front of the hotel has big glass windows and you can enjoy the views literally from anywhere in the hotel.
While enjoying our drinks, we walked out on the deck to enjoy the sun setting. The unspoiled West Coast National Park is on the doorstep of the hotel and the white sandy beach of Shark Bay is just across the (quiet) road.
Should you want to stay over at The Shark Bay Hotel & Spa, there are 15 luxurious rooms to choose from. The gourmet restaurant, exclusive bar, wine cellar and relaxing spa are adding finishing touches to this lovely place.
As for our food … ah well, it was delicious! Beautiful plated and really well prepared. I always enjoy a plate of food that looks almost too pretty to eat!
We had a really lovely evening. It’s such a privilege to celebrate my mom’s birthday with her and to treat her with a special evening out. Shark Bay Hotel & Spa was definitely the perfect place for such a special celebration.
Just to emphasize the beauty of the Shark Bay area … here are a couple of pictures of Shark Bay beach opposite the Shark Bay Hotel & Spa. It’s a great place to go for a walk along the lagoon and enjoy nature.
