We call it home

Discover the luxurious St James Retirement Hotel in the magnificent historical setting of False Bay. A lovely blend of old world elegance, modern comfort and superb service, The St James is nestled above one of Cape Town’s best wind-free beaches in the picturesque village of St James.

The Hamlet of St James lies only 24km from Cape Town. It is an affluent suburb; the neighbourhood is one of palatial homes and stately Summer houses – some of which date back to the turn of the century – enjoying panoramic views across the False Bay coast.
