Travellers' Choice
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.

Hotel's Favourite
It was truly one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had and the staff are exceptional. I have been in the hospitality industry for 15 years and I know what it takes to provide the level of service your whole team gave and furthermore, under the restrictions of COVID. From the front desk team to the ladies who served us breakfast, we could not have felt more welcomed or “at home”. We can not wait to come back next year and we will certainly be telling all our friends about POD! The rooms were beautiful and spacious and the views are breath taking. The pool is beyond perfect and the gym was an added bonus too! If I’m CT you must stay here!

The POD in Camps Bay has been the best hotel stay we have ever experienced. The entire staff is so happy and friendly, nothing is too hard and everything is an absolute pleasure. The service was also beyond impeccable. We were spoilt with the attentiveness from the staff, who gave us incredible pool side snacks all day long, and offered us popcorn, hot chocolates and an array of sweets for our movie nights (they have HUNDREDS of movies to choose from!). The complimentary mini bar topped off the experience - we couldn't believe the generosity of the hotel! The entire hotel was impeccably clean. Our room was spotless, yet homely. We felt like we were living at a home away from home. The rooms are big, spacious and noise proof. The views are spectacular from the big balconies! We sat there every night enjoying the sun set. Everything was supplied for: a coffee machine, teas, biscuits, sweets, nuts, wine... If you could think of it, it was there! And whatever you need - the staff have it. The all inclusive breakfasts were divine! The first morning we chose to enjoy our breakfast in bed, and it was so easy, quick and scrumptious. Whatever your breakfast of choice, it's bound to be on the menu! Oats, waffles, pancakes, scrambled eggs, eggs benedict... and more. The entire hotel is modern and luxurious. There are photo opportunities GALORE, especially for any social media fanatic (#Me) :-) We spent both our days relaxing at the pool, which was warmed to a lovely temperature, and enjoyed the views of the ocean right by the doorstep. There was quiet ambiance music, and the staff as always readily available to make you any drink you desire. I am a margarita-queen, and have tasted many different ones over the years, but the POD makes the best margarita, hands down. It's also FANTASTIC that they have secure underground parking, you feel safe 100% of the time. Also such a great thing to mention is the location, right by the Camps Bay beachfront which means all the best restaurants and bars are just 2 minutes away. No matter who you are or what you're looking for, the POD is it. I can't WAIT to go again!

This place is absolutely beautiful! A unique design and aesthetic that gets drenched in Cape Town sunlight for the majority of the day which makes for a perfect pool session. Amazing staff that were super friendly and attentive, would highly recommend for those who are looking for a relaxed Cape Town getaway.

Seriously I must say this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. We started off our honeymoon here and our only regret is that we did not stay longer. The rooms are modern and large. The service received was exceptional throughout our stay. The cocktails served were awesome and pretty reasonably priced. But the pista resistance has got to be that incredible view. It truly is an amazing hotel.
