Camps Bay Retreat, Cape Town

Camps Bay Retreat

Cape Town, South Africa

Camps Bay Retreat is positioned between the mountainous ranges of Lions Head, Table Mountain and Twelve Apostles overlooking the endless vista of the Atlantic Ocean.

It is set in a lush four acre garden with stunning views across the nearby ocean. In the grounds you will find three swimming pools: one heated and one unheated and the stunning mountain pool, fed by water which cascades down from Table Mountain. The tennis court is the last privately owned court in Camps Bay and all equipment is available to hire. Guests can also enjoy nature walks and mountain biking, as well as the spa facilities at the Bay Hotel.

There is a choice of accommodation at Earl's Dyke Manor or the more contemporary Deck House and Villa, which are linked to the manor grounds by a superb suspension bridge over a ravine leading down to the ocean. Earl's Dyke Manor has four magnificent suites with an elegant, colonial style and some superb antique furnishings and paintings.

The rooms at Deck House have a crisp and modern style with lots of sunlight and large wooden deck spaces. Deck House has a private pool and extensive gardens and all rooms have private decks. In the villa, the rooms are also more modern in style, with deep leather sofas and minimalist bedrooms and bathrooms.
