Set amid the refined, gracious hills of Hout Bay, Hout Bay Manor is a sparkling, hidden gem of luxury and indulgence. Built in 1871 by Jacob Trautmann, it was originally known as the Royal Hotel.

A picturesque river runs through a small natural harbor into the circular bay where it meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Relax under the shade of custom-made Zulu umbrellas by the private swimming pool or unwind amid the magnificent old oak trees in the tranquil private garden.
