I had no idea what to expect from a retreat within Camps Bay, it just seemed, well, too close to the urban chaos to be all too 'retreat-like' but I was in fact very pleasantly surprised when I arrived and walked into this hidden gem. What I was expecting to be small and urban proved to be the contrary. The retreat is tucked away in the breathtaking Twelve Apostles mountains and consists of an enormous piece of land that is still majority natural landscape. Not only does it overlook the ocean but the environment made me feel as though I was far away from any form of concrete and certainly not 5 minutes from the CBD. So I was impressed already.

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I were treated to a day of relaxation that we will surely never forget. Mint Wellness at Camps Bay Retreat, a truly hidden gem in Cape Town, has breathtaking views, gorgeous gardens and perfectly hidden treatment rooms which ensure that you have utter privacy and experience sheer relaxation. We were a small group of people and sat amongst scattered cushions and comfy chairs under a large umbrella which reminded me of a picnic setting. Ayesha, the manager of Mint Wellness, gave us a small introduction to the property (which is over a century old). On the four acres of this flourishing nature reserve is a Boutique Hotel as well as a Deck House and Villa, which you have to cross via a hanging bridge.

Camps Bay’s best-kept secret, The Retreat is appropriately hidden in complete serenity on a lush nature reserve, with streams and a natural meditation pool. Modern, chic decor and breathtaking views and facilities include sauna, steam room and solar-heated pools. I experienced the Love Actually Package and, oh, I’m in love. The treatment started with an Aroma Vine massage that was to-die-for. My therapist really paid attention to my needs and performed one of the best Swedish massages ever! The cherry on top was having the treatment performed in a comfortable room with a wood-burning fire that set the mood just right – the fact that it was a freezing, rainy day made it all seem perfect! After my massage I spent half an hour chilling in a jacuzzi bubble bath gazing dreamily over the valley of lush greenery, sipping on glass of Champagne. It really was a fantastic experience that left me feeling happy, relaxed and at ease.
