2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

It was the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. We loved every second of it. It was magical and memorable. 10/10 if you looking for a special place to stay this is it. Everything is perfect and authentic

Hotel's Favourite
Well, we waited almost two years (four times rescheduled) to visit, and it was WORTH THE WAIT! This place is even more breathtakingly beautiful in person than the gorgeous pics online. We arrived, after a warm and sunny safari, on a wet and chilly afternoon, and the ambience was fantastic. Fires going, stunning views of Sentinel Mountain (must've taken 25+ pictures of its different presentations over five days). The rooms, bathrooms, and their views-out of this world. The sounds of the crashing waves-amazing. The tastes of the super breakfasts and residents menu dinners (the bread and curated butter, the seared tuna app, the linefish and risotto-OMG) - the kitchen is to be commended. The service unparalleled-they made us feel like family. Special thanks and kudos to Jonathan, Tracy, Annie, and the FAB Jess Green who surprised us with a confectionary treat for our anniversary. We did try the Chef's Warehouse at Maison for the tapas lunch in the winelands region - very yummy and unique. They also introduced us to Escape and Explore tours-we were delighted with our two days - traveling around the Cape and visiting the wine country with Lizelle. I simply do not have the words to aptly describe this piece of paradise. It was love at first sight, and the travel love only grew throughout the week!!

Shocker! Wonderful location but no idea how to deliver a 5 star experience. We arrived for a 2 night stay to a room with no hot water and no Wi Fi. Cold showers on day 1 and day 2 in the morning in Winter. They told us they had given up trying to fix the hot water and there was no manager on duty! Following morning we packed up, made alternative arrangements, ready to leave early. During breakfast they managed to fix the hot water but not Wi Fi. We said we’d unpack and stay if they refunded our night but they flat out refused offering a complimentary night which we didn’t want. Unreal considering the circumstances so we left anyway. After some complaining and a few very damaging reviews in closed groups, they finally offered a refund on the first night but not the second when we didn’t even stay there, what a joke! They even made false claims about having offered complimentary spa treatments. This is our third trip there and second very poor experience since the first trip also landed up with them giving us a complimentary stay. Never again. Go to the restaurant to enjoy the location, don’t stay in the hotel, there are much better hotels in Cape Town.

Room Tip: Don’t stay in the Zanzibar room, it shares a wall with the restaurant and will keep you awake.

A lovely romantic place for couples, location is the highlight, also love how they have taken advantage of the location, for example, having a swing and relaxing area literally in the ocean, the resturant deck is unforgettable in terms of the views etc. The service staff are great, the room is a lovely size and the bathrooms are unforgettable with a view that is unseen before .... Cleanliness is key and visible everywhere, including the property itself. Chefs warehouse, the quality of the food was awesome, however, personally, we like a combination of the simple stuff with the fancy stuff, so the menu appears a bit inflexible, for example, no pizza or toasted sandwiches or pancakes for breakfast ... however, if you request these to be made, the kitchen is fairly accomodating. The specific spa room for treatments needs an uplift, it really does not compliment the general ambience of the property and rooms and the treatments are quiet expensive. Apart from listenning to the waves while you have your treatments (which is priceless) you also want to feel like you in an exclusive place having a treatment.

Everything about the Tintswalo Atlantic is stunning, including its location and the rooms. But what made it a memorable stay is its staff. Everyone went out of their way to provide exceptional service with a smile. We also appreciated Tintswalo’s flexibility when we had to reschedule our trip last year due to Covid.

Tintswalo is one of the most beautiful locations in South Africa and worldwide. Luxury, attention to detail and complete relaxation that’s right on the ocean with Table mountain in the background. We were treated like royalty and savored every moment.

A stunning stay to celebrate our anniversary and the venue is quite spectacular. With waves crashing at your feet as you stare out from your bed. Delicious Chefs Table tapas meal from restaurant with incredible views. Check out their SA residents mid week package they’ve put together if you want to spoil someone.
