2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Cool beyond question is POD Camps Bay. A true Africa original realised in a stunning set of decor elements, POD is both raw yet polished. See naked Africa design timber dropping into stone, shifting into glass, imbuing a sense of seaside sophistication so often attempted but so rarely achieved. 17 modern suites and rooms share the spoils of idyllic mountain and ocean views. Primely located a mere 50 meters from the silky sands of the famous Camps Bay beachfront with its trendy restaurants and bars. POD Camps Bay offers a luxurious 5 star boutique hotel experience. It is little wonder that POD appears on the Condé Nast Hot List 2011, and finds its place among Tatler's 101 Best Hotels in the World.

We cannot stress enough how great this hotel is and would highly recommand to everyone looking for some pampering. Although the location is great (right at the beach and walking distance from restaurants and Clifton), breakfast amazing and the design of the hotel stunning, the real gem here is the staff. They did their utmost best to ensure a great stay: from the breakfast staff to people at the desk, they facilitated everything. Everyday water, sunscreen, umbrella, etc for the beach, we could stay the entire day at the hotel even when checked out, we got rose peddles, a sweet note and alcohol free champagn on our room to celebrate a nice event for us and we forgot shoes and a jacket, which they will send to our home in Amsterdam. Absolutely one of the best hotels we stayed in - highly recommend.
