The Baths, with its Natural Hot Water Springs of 43º Celsius, is situated only two hours drive from Cape Town on a citrus farm in the scenic Olifants River Valley, near the town of Citrusdal in the Western Cape of South Africa. Established in 1739 this self-catering resort, with handsome Victorian-style stone buildings, maintains an old world charm in a scenic, rural setting.
Today the resort is run by the great-grandchildren of James McGregor, who bought The Baths on public auction in Clanwilliam in 1903.
Accommodation includes 15 chalets and 18 flats with self-contained kitchens and braai areas.
There are 20 well shaded caravan and camping sites with ablution facilities and some with electrical points.
In addition to the hot and cold water swimming pools and hot mineral spring water baths, relaxing pastimes include tennis, trampoline, pool table, small playground for children, hiking trails, mountain biking and bird watching.
MacGregors' Restaurant with its mouthwatering a la carte menu offers an alternative to self-catering or the opportunity to relax with sundowners on the deck.
A shop on site sells self-catering necessities.
The owners of The Baths have a policy of non-commercialisation. Although we now have cell phone reception, we do not have TV's in the units. We want to promote outdoor living in a relaxed, yet comfortable atmosphere. An internet HotSpot at MacGregor's Restaurant is available for fast internet access.
