St James Retirement Hotel

Once the pride of hotels on the False Bay coast, today The St James is no less dedicated to the comfort and well-being of its residents.  Imagine living with us on a permanent extended holiday, but in familiar and congenial surroundings.  You won’t ever need to cook or clean, drive or shop, because The St James offers full board, fully serviced suites, safety, security and all-round comfort and style the old fashioned way.  All in the idylic environs of False Bay.

With on-the-spot medical attention and recuperative care in the comfort of home, The St James is ideally equipped to deal with all the supportive medical care you might require – at a fraction of the cost and discomfort of hospital or separate nursing facility outside of one’s familiar surroundings.  Whether you are on a strict medical diet, a demanding medication routine or require post-operative care or dedicated nursing to deal with chronic illness, whatever your need, we can offer both in-suite care, or specialised attention at our dedicated Health Care Centre, staffed by highly qualified, permanent nursing professionals.

Our all-inclusive rates cover the following :  Three meals per day, morning and afternoon teas/coffees, fully serviced suites, fresh linen and towels twice weekly, 24 hour qualified nursing facility, DSTV (satelite TV) in all suites, emergency pull-cords in all suites, smoke detectors in all suites, electricity and water, rates, taxes and insurance of the building, building maintenance, maintenance of the building, gardens and grounds, management and administration of the complex, 24-hour security, manned entrances, electric perimeter fencing, 24-hour armed response, closed-circuit television.

We provide a host of recreational and entertainment facilities such as :   swimming pool, exercise classes,  meditation classes, cards and Bingo, dinner dances, musical soirees, library, ladies bar – happy hour at 17h00 every evening, outings to theatres and stage shows, Pilates and Yoga classes, knitting and crafting circle, Bridge, talk shows, poetry readings, cocktail parties, scenic drives to places of interest, private bus daily shopping facility.   Optional facilities include :  Hairdresser, Physiotherapist, Pedicurist and personal laundry.

And the extras money can’t buy -  Companionship, happiness, a good laugh, a caring touch – arguably the most precious things in any life.  At The St James they’re absolutely free !  It’s what sets us apart from so many other retirement establishments.  It shows in the special relationships our residents share with each other and with us.
