Camps Bay Retreat

Camps Bay Retreat

Camps Bay Retreat is a world class 5-star boutique hotel situated on four glorious acres of Atlantic coast in South Africa’s most popular city, Cape Town. Set against the backdrop of Table Mountain in the Cape Town suburb of Camps Bay, the hotel has views of the ocean as well as the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range.

The hotel is blessed with three unique swimming pools (one pool in particular is very similar to those often seen in Italianate gardens). Impossibly perched on the mountain slopes, the pools are so created to meld seamlessly into the surroundings. In addition, the estate has a tennis court, spa, and fine dining restaurant. Guests also have access to certain amenities at The Bay Hotel next door including the beach club and the techno-gym. Squash courts are available at the Camps Bay Sports Club.

Guests of the Camps Bay Retreat have a variety of accommodation options. Two Premier rooms offer king-size bed and glorious private marble bathrooms with double vanity and free-standing Victorian bath. The three Luxury and six Superior rooms also have king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms with both bath and shower. The four Suites are larger and also have king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms.

Dining at Camps Bay Retreat is world-class. The menu pays homage to the French classics but is thoroughly modern in execution and in the creative combinations of ingredients and local influences. The excellent wine cellar has choices to compliment any dish and adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of the excellent dinners. Head chef Robyn Capendale was selected for a coveted five-week placement in Heston Blumenthal's Michelin three-star restaurant, The Fat Duck.

As a tourist destination, Cape Town has much to offer travelers. There are many hiking trails on the Table Mountain and many start just outside the gates of the Camps Bay Retreat. Hikes vary in difficulty. Do you prefer to climb up Lion’s Head and summit using chains or do you prefer to leisurely amble along? Inquire at reception, and they will be happy to assist you with any need.
