When I stayed at The Camps Bay Retreat for the first time, a few years ago, I immediately realized that that I had found somewhere unique, special and breathtaking. It was unlike any other place I have stayed, and I have lived in four countries and have been fortunate enough to travel in the past. Every staff member and the especially the manager, went out of their way to fulfill every need, wish and want.
I have stayed at The Camps Bay Retreat three times, and it is impossible to properly explain what is so incredibly special about it. One has to experience it. A wide expanse of ocean is one’s furthest view, and then the trees and plants and flowers and lawn that sweeps down the the gradual hill in front of the the majestic, old Manor house, and then less gradually, eventually down into a forest of naturally growing vegetation. The path down has hidden delights. The privacy and space of the land around and below the property, with tall trees and the abundant plants and flowers, are a perfect experience. The food is delicious and I ate food I had never tried before. I am very glad I did. The beds are very comfortable and each room is perfect in a different way. My love for history and the past made the main house perfect for me. There is a wonderful library and The Camps Bay Retreat, would always be my first choice, anywhere in the world, to stay and spend time.
