When William Selkirk landed ‘that’ 967kg shark onto the rocks of Hermanus in 1922, I doubt he ever dreamt his name would appear in lights that shine quite as brightly as they do at this multi-levelled mountain-side retreat. The exceptional use of space and natural surroundings through levels, landings, terraces and quiet mountain recesses is visionary, not only aesthetically but also functionally. Everything is slick, chic, minimalistic and clean, accentuated by bursts of bright fynbos flower paintings. Stainless steel balustrades lead you up wooden stairs to your next indulgence, whether it’s your room, the pool and first living space, complete with temperature-controlled wine cellar and vent-free fireplace, or the contemporary bar room with outside deck and fireplace, or the roof-top viewing deck which provides 360° views of mountains and ocean. All suites are a spacious dream and completely automated, allowing you to control your immediate environment whether through music, climate or brightness. I think they must have had a bit of a chuckle watching me walking in and out of the various rooms, wide-eyed as a child, as lights magically switched themselves on and off. Although everything really is cutting edge, Selkirk is also welcoming and warm-spirited and you are certainly encouraged to kick off your shoes and make full use of this splendiferous new creation. Just as I was about to leave a tortoise had made its way down the mountain and into the garden… the race is on!
