My fiancée and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Tintswalo Atlantic two weeks ago. The whole weekend was flawless from start to finish. We arrived and were greeted with cool towels and homemade lemonade. We shared a bottle of bubbles on the deck overlooking the ocean before going to lounge around the pool. The service is incredible. A few...

Tintswalo Atlantic is located in one of the best hideaways on the Atlantic seaboard, a nature reserve on Chapman's peak. It lies on the rocks at sea level and allows one to enjoy the sounds of the ocean and beautiful views of Hourt bay. Isolated enough to feel like you are alone in the beautiful Cape wilderness but close enough...

We stayed here for diner on several occasions. The location is superb! You drive along the cliff side in through the security gate, leave your car and they drive you down a very steep road to the hotel which is right on sea level. The views of the sea, the mountains and Haut Bay are out of this world. Sundowners...

I just has a site inspection of this property and didn't stay, but the individually styled, decorated and coloured rooms must have something that suits everyone. It is a beautifully located property, down a cliff face on a pebbled beach in Hout Bay. It also makes a great lunch stop if you're driving the coast from Cape Point to Camps...

Located at the bottom of an mountain which requires the staff to drive, it is directly on the Hout Bay. This is the hotel you wish you can stay at forever. The panamoric views of the bay, and incredible mountain vistas are memorable. Each of the individually decorated suites are spacious and well appointed. Each meal prepared by restaurant staff...

As a wedding gift night away, we literally could have been anywhere in the country or world. This place is very special. From arrival, you're made to feel incredibility welcomed. Champagne on the house and flowing on arrival, to a personal tour by the manager of the resort and room. We stayed in the Zanzibar room, which is the first...

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
