Camps Bay Retreat


Camps Bay Retreat is a luxurious five-star boutique hotel set amidst a four-acre private nature reserve in Cape Town. The accommodation is in a beautifully preserved Victorian manor house with stunning views over lush gardens to Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

There are 14 elegant, individually styled rooms, from premium rooms to spacious suites. All are large, airy and bright with smart and stylish décor and modern private bathrooms, air-conditioning, satellite TV, DVD players, safety deposit boxes, telephones and complimentary WiFi access.

The estate surrounding the hotel has four separate swimming pools, a tennis court, spa and trails to waterfalls and meditation spots. There is an emphasis on relaxation so the hotel offers a sauna with a full range of spa treatments and facials, and a gym.

There is a fine dining restaurant on site serving three-course gourmet cuisine produced with fresh local ingredients from the markets, and there is an excellent wine selection to complement the cooking.

Camps Bay Retreat is within walking distance of Camps Bay and the Glen beaches, and other city attractions can be accessed on a short drive.

The retreat is in the process of reintroducing native flowers, trees and plants to the estate and many are already well established. Guided walks with the resident horticulturalist can be arranged: the fynbos plant varieties are particularly interesting to see.

We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Leopard View was fantastic. The guide did his upmost for us and the rest of the game viewing was great. We saw everything that we wanted to see.
