About Fels Retreat

Fels Retreat is situated in the heart of northern KwaZulu-Natal. This gem is located just outside Paulpietersburg, at the foot of the Dumbe Mountain, the tail-end of the magnificent Drakensberg mountain range. Fels was originally a Catholic Mission with a monastery, chapel and other outside buildings. The transformation into Fels, as a venue for various occasions, started in 2000.

With a spectacular view over tree plantations and of mountain ranges on the horizon, this retreat is a perfect countryside bed and breakfast and wedding or event venue. We also specialize in corporate, social or spiritual retreats.

Fels Retreat can accommodate approximately 34 guests in various rooms including Superior Rooms, Double Rooms, Standard Rooms, Dorms, and Self-catering Units. Camping sites are also available with hot showers and a boma with a fire pit.

The on-site chapel can seat 150 guests; with pipe organ and a bell that all adds to a special atmosphere.

The rustic-looking, round, thatched-roof lapa seats 150 guests. For conferences, about 60 participants can be seated at tables. A large bar counter, fridge and freezer is available.

Fels Retreat is a pet-friendly establishment (by prior arrangement).

                                                      The huge amount of space and fresh air was very nice.
