A New Villa on a glorious block - Camps Bay Villa Ronald - Part 1

September 03, 2019

Welcome to paradise. This split, three-level villa is designed to make you feel both luxuriously comfortable and in a state of semi-awe at your surroundings.

As an abode, it ticks all the boxes but as an architectural piece of art, it excels. Specifically because the Villa both takes advantage of and becomes part of its environment. Sheer unspoiled elegance, endless sunsets and beautiful Balua wood wrap-around balconies to give you the best view in the world.

An African sunset is special, but an African Sunset viewed from the lap of luxury on the lower slopes of Table Mountain with nothing but ocean to the horizon is absolutely spectacular.

Experience the best the city, province and country has to offer, choosing to stay at Villa Ronald will be the best way to soak in all the glory and majesty of a beautiful bay, containing two Blue Flag beaches.

Picnic on the Beach

December 08, 2016

Picnics on the beach are a holiday staple that everybody needs to experience. For soft sand lovers there is the iconic Camps Bay beach with its’ one-in-a-kind view of the ocean and majestic mountain backdrop. If the sand is not what you’re looking for there is always the rocky outcrop between Camps Bay and Glen Beach which affords all the same views (some say better). 

Things you will need:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sun umbrella
  • A nice big blanket
  • Drinks and snacks (please remember, open alcoholic beverages are illegal on our beaches)
  • Frisbees, beach bats etc etc.

For snacks we would highly recommend Kleinsky’s Delicatessen in Sea Point, especially their Bada-Bing Bagel (Beef bresaola, provolone cheese, rocket and lemon Dijon vinaigrette). You could also pop by Giovanni's

in Green Point, and browse their fantastic selection of cold meats, freshly baked breads, fine cheeses and jams to stock up for your excursion.

Sandy B

Sandy B at The Bay Hotel is the intersection of summer and elegance, it’s being poolside, and beachside, at the same time. We highly recommend the iconic and signature Hibiscus & Rooibos martini, with gin, hibiscus extracts, lime, cranberry extracts and rooibos tea, it’s local flavours at an international level.
