We recently had an opportunity to spend the night at Tintswalo Atlantic - what an absolute pleasure. The setting was awesome, the service brilliant and the food "to die for". Even though Tintswalo was fully booked, we never got that "overcrowded" feeling, which allowed us the freedom we wanted. The staff are very friendly and attentive to ones needs. I...

We stayed here 3 nights for our wedding 14/12 and it was the most beautiful place to be in the world! We stayed in the Lamu suite and got married on our big deck as it was just the two of us and it was magical. Melissa, 8 plus months pregnant - dont know how she did it, was such...

Anyone who grew up in Cape Town knows how busy it gets during the December festive period. People, traffic and retail temptations. My husband and I needed to take a break from all of that and Tintswalo Atlantic was the perfect getaway. Tucked away at the foot of Chapman's Peak away from all the hustle and bustle. To be completely...

This hotel is truly one of the most magical and relaxing places we have ever had the privilege to visit. The setting, right by the Atlantic with waves crashing onto pebbles right outside our deck, is breathtaking. This is the ultimate stress buster! From the moment we arrived the staff were kind, attentive, switched on and ever helpful. The Rooms...

This is a really fantastic hotel in terms of location, atmosphere, service, spacious rooms and above all a friendly, attentive but unobtrusive staff. It is expensive (for locals!) but worth the price asked; highly recommended for foreign visitors who will probably regard the prices as modest!

This place was spectacular. The rooms were amazing, the view was incredible. The hotel is located within Table Mountain National Park right on the bay. We were able to leave the doors to the balcony open and listen to the sounds of the waves. The sunset was breathtaking.

Tintswalo is as close to perfect as you can get. The location is stunning, right on the waters edge and with beautiful views of Hout Bay. Rooms are really spacious, each with a unique design and with small balconies overlooking the sea. Since returning to our crazy London lifestyles I've often wished I could transport myself back to the terrace...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched above a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapman's Peak, and overlooking the Cape's iconic Sentinel mountain, Tintswalo Atlantic sits sheltered by the Table Mountain National Park. As the only hotel permitted to operate within the boundaries of the word-renowned Heritage site, the lodge enjoys the very best of magnificent, panoramic ocean views, as well as access to the natural beauty found along the mountainside's winding hiking trails. With ten beautifully appointed suites and one regal presidential suite - all of which have been freshly re-furbished from floor to ceiling - Tintswalo Atlantic offers the luxuries of a world-class hotel, with personalized service and attention to detail. Managed by a host of dedicated staff, Tintswalo Atlantic offers guests nothing less than true Tintswalo hospitality, from the moment that they arrive at this seaside paradise. Enjoy sundowners on the deck beside the heated pool and share cooking tips with the charming Executive Chef, venture out to the quaint Hout Bay village, or take a drive to the nearby Cape Winelands for an unforgettable wine-tasting adventure. Located just a short, scenic drive from the vibrant city of Cape Town, guests can also embark on a suburban adventure into the heart of one of South Africa's most exciting and eclectic cultures. Having been described as the most dramatic and romantic destination in Southern Africa, Tintswalo Atlantic promises to remain an idyllic location to rejuvenate oneself, away from the stresses and distractions of modern living. ... more   less
