Camps Bay Retreat offers guests the unique opportunity of experiencing the green tranquillity of a nature reserve. The estate comprises four acres of private land with a mountain pool, waterfall and streams. Take advantage of a variety of swimming pools, a private tennis court and nature walks or simply pamper yourself at the spa. End the day with a romantic dinner on the verandah, and savour a delicious, homemade meal while indulging in the glorious ocean sunsets.
There are a couple of things about a homely kitchen that makes it special - the fact that you will always be welcomed and that it is normally where the “good stuff” is kept hidden or slowly simmering. The smell of freshly baked breads, sound of mixers and blenders, the look of fresh fish and poultry and the sense of extreme heat. All these hidden and simmering treasures are made with the utmost care and always in abundance, rounded off with “seasoned” timing in the Retreat
Kitchen. Von Kamptz offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Picnics and braai’s (South Africa’s version of a barbeque) on offer, weather permitting.
Romantic dining in an extraordinary setting. Our executive chef creates a daily menu of gourmet fare, combining a symphony of fresh ingredients from local markets with organic fare straight from the gardens.
Dine in the old world splendour of the original manor house dining room. A maximum of 18 people can be comfortably accommodated. Exclusive use of our comfortable Heritage Lounge and its antique, solid dark wood oval table. Comfortable lounge seating and spectacular table setting for eight patrons. Ample natural sunlight for early lunches, with the added advantage of open fireplace for the peaceful dinner.
Earls Dyke Veranda is perfectly situated with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and landscaped gardens adding to the unmistakable romanticism. This venue can accommodate up to 40 guests. Located at the entrance to the dining room is a narrow staircase that takes you down to our Wine Cellar. This intimate venue is the ideal location to sit and learn more about our wine list and enjoy a tasting experience.

Travelling on the N1 or N2 towards Cape Town, continue straight onto Buitengracht street. Continue until the road name changes to Kloof Nek Road. As you approach an intersection of Camp Bays Drive and Signal Hill Road, continue straight onto Camps Bay Drive. Take the second right into Geneva Drive and then turn right into Sedgemoor Road. After about 600m, turn right into Chilworth Road. The Camps Bay Retreat will be on your left at number 7.
