The Bay

Cape Town, South Africa

This hotel is one of the landmarks of the exclusive Camps Bay suburb, famous not only for its classic whitewashed walls capped by a green roof, but also for the relaxed and elegant haven it provides for the weary traveller.

Tides restaurant is an ideal place to start or end the day, enjoying fine food in a light, colonial environment whilst watching the waves tumble onto the beach in front of the hotel. The rooms are uncluttered, with simple yet comfortable furnishings and their own balconies looking out to Camps Bay. Much of the furnishing is either in light woods and wicker, or has been constructed in a contemporary European style. Cool colours such as creams, blues and greens give the hotel its relaxing atmosphere.

The hotel is well placed for the renowned restaurants and bars of Camps Bay, so a stay at the hotel can be as relaxed and intimate or vibrant and sociable as you like.
