Luxury Boutique Retirement Living at its Best

Independent but Never Alone.

When entering the Palm Garden Retreat no one would blame you for thinking you are in a charming gracious vintage five star hotel.


We offer a luxurious lifestyle in the heart of Sea Point where you are independent yet secure in the knowledge that a comprehensive safety net exists (whether you require care, catering or housekeeping) and your physical safety is of utmost importance at all times. Please refer to the Lifestyle page for more information on the services we provide.


Undoubtedly this is one of the premier retirement destinations in the Western Cape.


The retreat features 37 apartments and an 8 bed care facility which includes a well-equipped treatment room. The care facility is registered by the Department of Health and Social Development and managed by a top class Nursing Manager. The 8 bed care facility is manned by Enrolled Nurses and carers around the clock and each resident has their own panic button connected to the nurse’s station in case of an emergency. 


For your peace of mind there are security and receptionists on duty 24/7. The spacious lounge, games room and a magnificent dining room (complete with pressed ceilings), an exercise room and large swimming pool with beautiful gardens complete the picture. Resident and guest parking is provided and an in-house chauffeur service is also available.
