This hotel really is beautiful and we loved crossing the rope bridge to our deck house room. The service however was v disappointing for a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was a shambles with no croissants or granola. We had to ask for our coffee twice and it eventually turned up 20 mins later. Some of the staff are great -...

Nestled on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic, Camps Bay Retreat is a great place to kick back and be pampered like royalty. Breakfast is included with other meals available on request. Staff are very attentive and are always available to assist.

I picked this hotel as it was near my co-worker, for no other reason, but upon arrival, I was wishing I was there for vacation with time to enjoy! The room was a good size, with a lovely balcony, which overlooked the water. The balcony was shared by 2 other rooms, but was large enough to not be an issue,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camps Bay Retreat Luxury Boutique Hotel is a sanctuary for the soul, set on four acres of lush green nature reserve. With a mountain meditation pool, thickets of trees, waterfalls and streams, it is a peaceful paradise, where meditative moments are waiting to be had. Views stretch across the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean and along the peaks of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, from the Deck House and The Villa. The estate has features such as four pools, a tennis court, a spa and a fine dining restaurant. Dine in the old world splendour of the original manor house, where The Retreat Kitchen's executive chef creates a daily menu of gourmet fare, combining a symphony of fresh ingredients from local markets. Food is paired exquisitely with celebrated wines from the region, best experienced as part of a candlelit three course affair! Spoil yourself with a choice of massages, treatments and facials at the spa. Spend the day luxuriating in the spa, relaxing in the sauna and being revitalized with a deep tissue massage. A refuge for the body and a haven for the mind, you'll unravel and surrender to the tranquility. ... more   less
