Their rooms and suites offer gorgeous views of the ocean and mountains. Each hotel room is luxuriously furnished. The Adventure Pad has a private, glass-enclosed balcony with views of Camps Bay main beach and Lion's Head, while the luxury rooms are sea facing and boasts private loungers on the balcony.  The hotel itself is quite impressive. There are four restaurants at the property.

The Tides Restaurant caters for the breakfast crowd while the Caamil's Bar is an intimate venue for guests to enjoy a glass of wine or champagne next to the fireplace.
