The Resort

Cayley Mountain Resort

Cayley Mountain Resort is located in the Central Drakensberg, overlooking the Cathkin Peak and Sterkhorn ranges. The Bell Park Dam lies stretched out in front of the development offering breathtaking views from the comfort of your unit. It is here where you wake up to craggy mountainscapes coloured with green, blue and orange hues during the warm summer months. In the wintertime the blue mountains meet the oak coloured landscape and misty clouds descend, often treating guests to soft snowfall.


We know that holidays are a time for breaking the mould of the daily grind, discovering new things and having fun, so we planned our resort facilities with this in mind.
