As a local of Cape Town, it is rare to want to stay overnight in my own backyard, but having overseas visitors made us give it a go. All I can say is Wow. This is possibly my best place in Cape Town. You can look over the photos and realise the location is stunning but even the most perfect...

If you are in need of an escape to a little isle of tranquility away from the real world where you are pampered and made to feel special with every need catered for then this is it! A top place to celebrate any special occasion.

We have probably found the most idyllic location and peach of a Hotel that we have encountered during many years of travel to all Continents around the Globe. If you are searching for tranquility with amazing scenery, sumptuous food, a fine drinks / cocktail selection whilst staying in absolute luxury, then look no further. The Management and staff are to...

Exceptional lodge with exceptional staff. One of the most beautiful setting in the world and can easily compete with the best. Excellent dining and service, modern but soothing décor and a management team that becomes friends. Highly recommendable, even if on the expensive side (but this for understandable reasons). The lodge suffered a severe setback in 2015, having been totally...

This hotel was perfect in every way. Every finishing touch was thought of and rhe food exceptional. Waking up to the ocean was just a perfect end to our south African holiday. I could not fault it. From the exceptional breakfast to Canapés and drinks on the deck at sunset was just amazing. Thanks tinswalo. (We stayed in zanzibar)

What a magnificent spot. We were welcomed very professionally and informed of all that was on offer. Our room was beautifully 'romanticised' which was a special touch. The food was good but was expecting it to be even better. The staff were pleasant but felt there could have been a waiter allocated to each room when considering what one pays....

We are mid way through a 9 night honeymoon stay at the Tintswalo. We have both stayed in many places around the world but this is by far the most beautiful location we have ever visited.

The moment you arrive at a pair of beautifully wrought metal gates on the cliff top you know you are somewhere special. Guests are not allowed to drive further so a four wheel drive takes one down a steep winding road to the waters edge. The simple looking wooden lodge belies the luxurious eclectic decor, squishy linen covered sofas, accents...

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
