For a totally unique experience. Small scale hotel with fantastic views that has recently been rebuilt after fires destroyed it. Very nice and spacey rooms all with a unique theme and all facing the sea. Near the chapman's peak drive. Attentive and friendly staff.

We stayed at Tintswalo for our 10th wedding anniversary and had the most amazing and special time there. Arriving, you have the most scenic views of Chapman's Peak. Your car is left at the entrance in a safe spot and you are shuttled down the mountain and far from the massing crowd. You realise when you arrive it is very...

Beautiful, stunning and friendly...to be repeated, though I must be honest and say that I thought the menu was too ambitious... Many diners nowadays like at least one simpler choice of main course to be available.......but a unique experience indeed. Well done.

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
