A unique weekend away with the best natural hot waters

There is nothing better in the world then soaking in hot mineral baths from deep within the earth while the night skies fill up with stars. This is The Baths for me.

Nestled at the top of a narrow valley, this resort is my top choice if I want t get away from it all. The camping sites are strung out along a brook, underneath huge trees, and the ablutions are the best I've seen. A small shop offers necessities, and there is also a restaurant with a deck. You can enjoy... More

Absolutely amazing view of the Citrusdal Valley and the Olifants River. Enjoyed the hot tub set next to chalet with naturally hot water. Somewhat basic accommodation but with efficient and quiet air conditioning. It would have been a good idea for management to have advised us that the farmers would be spraying the citrus trees in the middle of the... More

Dear Sigi2013 Thanks for the feedback. At present , we are in a process of upgrading all our accommodation units.

If you want some relaxing quality time alone, this is definitely the place to be! Its like a little oasis out of real life. We stayed in a private suite with our own big outside bath where you could relax and listen to the sound of nature. It would however be nice if there was a cleaning service, everything needs...

We were in the area for the weekend and decided to spend the day at The Baths. And we were very glad that we did. The hot and cold pools were a hive of activity with quite a few of the guests hanging out and some in the pool. It didn't feel too crowded and we had a good experience.... More

My Wife and I stayed at the Baths for 5 night in October 2015 and had mixed feeling upon our arrival. The staff weren't really friendly or helpful for that matter, not much information was given regarding the surround area or wildlife(which I will explain later). The cottages were neat and tidy, but felt like something was lacking when you... More

This was our fifth time at The Baths and we still just love it. It was great to see some updating and refurbishment going on and to see that the new owner wants to take care of this wonderful place.

Visited The Baths for the afternoon... Quite the lovely spot to cool off on those sunny days in Citrusdal. Lovely views of the mountains by the pool side and very quiet environment to have spent the afternoon. Very friendly oldish man at the gate who was happy to assist and answer any questions we had and friendly reception staff.
