Albone House, Paternoster South Africa

The luxurious five-star Abalone House & Spa effortlessly blends old world elegance with eclectic decadence in the quaint seaside village of Paternoster on the Cape West Coast.

Situated 160km north of Cape Town, Paternoster has its own distinctive beauty, with its unspoilt shimmering white beaches, rocky outcrops, turquoise waters of the Atlantic and indigenous fynbos. Whitewashed fishermen’s houses, blue shutters, colourful fishing boats scattered on the beach and boat masts tinkling in the breeze create an idyllic setting for this unique Boutique Guesthouse. A 90-minute drive from Cape Town, Abalone House & Spa offers city-weary dwellers and discerning travellers an unashamedly opulent beachside escape, where extravagance and guest comforts take precedence. Set amid indigenous gardens, an air of quirky decadence pervades this sophisticated haven with its ten luxurious suites.

Lavishly designed with luxurious bohemian decor by Cape Town interior designer David Strauss, Abalone House & Spa delights with its grandeur, eclectic visual tapestry and divine cuisine.

Flamboyant layers of lived-in luxury include lovingly restored antiques, treasured memorabilia and objets d’art from the owners’ personal collection that share the welcoming spaces beside crystal chandeliers, wooden ceilings, modern furnishings and old silverware.

Inspired by the vibrant works of Artist Vladimir Tretchikoff, every area of this West Coast Boutique Guesthouse reflects an elegant opulence, with French-style doors and richly hued Persian rugs adorning stone floors. The signature Tretchikoff wall prints make a playfully eccentric style statement amid a flurry of jewel coloured fabrics, furnishings and African ornaments. Abalone House & Spa is also the perfect place for small conferences and intimate weddings.

The outside areas of Abalone House & Spa have their own seaside appeal reminiscent of the Greek isles, with wooden walkways and decking, comfortable wicker furniture, umbrellas and potted plants. There’s even a Jacuzzi on the rooftop deck. With its unhindered views of the beaches of Paternoster, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy sundowners or a midnight dip. A charming garden courtyard – complete with antique birdcages, wind chimes and pond – surround the swimming pool. If it’s a sunny afternoon, the place to be is on the brand new deck: bask in the sun while drinking in the fresh sea air and glorious sea views. The fishing village and more than seven kilometres of pristine white beaches are just a stroll away. See more events in this venue

Angie Beadle

I began studying yoga at 16 with my mother. During this time it helped me stay (relatively!) calm and centred during the turbulent teenage years.

At 18, I left England for Africa and went on to spend a large part of the following 15 years traveling the world....From the jungles of South America and the hills of New Zealand to the plains of Africa I practised and studied taking inspiration from my surroundings and the inspiring people I met on my journey.

I qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher at 21, making me the youngest Iyengar teacher in the UK at that time.

I spent time studying at the renowned Iyengar institute in Pune, India and went on to open and run the first Iyengar Yoga Centre in Sevilla, Spain. Since then I have left the Iyengar association and created my own style of yoga.

I am a registered SYT (Senior Yoga teacher) with yoga alliance uk.

I take my inspiration from a number of wonderful teachers but mainly from my wide range of incredible students...... ranging from children and teenagers to experienced Yogis and teachers.

In 2012, along with Jo Elvin, I created a yoga style especially for teenagers - Yoga Rebels. I continue to train teachers in this style, bringing yoga to hundreds of teenagers throughout schools in London and the home counties. For more information.

My style is fun and challenging yet precise and thorough. See more photos and other events by this presenter
