IIt’s a scenic drive from the vibrant city of Cape Town to Hout Bay, and just beyond, the winding, world-renowned Chapman’s Peak Drive hugs the mountainside toward Noordhoek. Completely hidden from passers-by, Tintswalo Atlantic lies below, nestled beneath the towering slopes of Table Mountain National Park and a pebbled beach. With its understated exterior, one would hardly imagine that beyond the lodge’s heavy wooden doors, a heavenly space of luxury, light and world-class service awaits. With its floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors, the panoramic ocean views are beckoned indoors, as are the sounds of roaring waves and the salty scent of kelp, blended with aromas of grilled line-fish and treated wood. Sheltered at the foot of the mountain, Tintswalo Atlantic’s eleven suites overlook the pebbled beach, with waves lapping up to the balconies at high tide. Each suite is tastefully decorated individually, taking on the personality of islands of the world. From the historical significance of Robben Island and the African authenticity of Zanzibar, to the azure tones of Cousine Island and the old-world charm of Sicily, no detail is left unattended, and no luxury is spared. As if the scenery and facilities aren’t enough to win over the most seasoned traveller, Tintswalo Atlantic’s kitchen serves up mouth-watering culinary experiences paired with the regions finest wines. Its unique location presents the perfect setting to celebrate a special occasion where during summer, guests dine right on the water’s edge, breathing in the fresh sea air. In cooler weather, the beautifully appointed dining room with an open kitchen enables diners to enjoy an interactive dining experience overlooking the ocean, warmed by cosy fireplaces and renowned, friendly service. Guests of Tintswalo simply won’t want to leave, but if the riches of Cape Town do entice visitors out for a day, the lodge’s central location allows for easy access to the rolling beauty of the Cape winelands, as well as the eclectic communities of Cape Town city and its surrounds. Some of the region’s most attractive sandy beaches are a picturesque drive away, as are the iconic Look-Out Point and Cape of Good Hope, the southernmost tip of the African continent, and the point at which two oceans meet. Dubbed as one of Southern Africa’s most romantic hotels, Tintswalo Atlantic manages to offer its guests unsurpassed luxury and service, at the fingertip of one of the world’s top city destinations. Quite simply a “must” for any traveller, local or otherwise!
