 Tintswalo Atlantic at a glance

  • The lodge has an island theme—each of its 10 suites is named after an island with individual décor to match. In addition to the suites, there is one presidential villa, so the lodge sleeps a maximum of 24 guests.
  • The centre of the lodge is the dining area with an expansive deck where breakfasts and sundowners are served.
  • Dining is five-star in a down to earth setting.
  • The lodge features a small private swimming pool.
  • The lodge is meters away from the sea, and breaking waves surging against the rocks will lull you to sleep at night.
  • There are no organised activities at the lodge except guided walks, but guests can visit Cape Town’s many attractions using this as a base.
  • No children under 12, except in the presidential villa. But we feel it is not a kid friendly environment.

The concession

Tintswalo Atlantic is nestled on a private concession on the slopes of Table Mountain, privately situated along Chapman’s Peak. This is one of the most scenic drives in South Africa, and the hotel is located in a secluded spot within metres of the ocean. The views over Hout Bay towards the Sentinel are breath taking. The lodge is set amid indigenous fynbos with native milkwood trees and other species. The bay is frequented by pods of dolphins and whales. This is a great jumping off point to visit the attractions of Cape Point, the Winelands and Table Mountain Reserve, but you may never want to leave the lodge! Such is its tranquil and relaxing appeal. For more about Cape Town click here.

The seasons

The hotel is wonderful in summer (November to March), but this can also be a windy time in Cape Town. March and April tend to be wonderful months with very little wind. The Cape gets its rain in winter, but Tintswalo has fireplaces and cosy living areas, so it will also be a great option at this time. Whale-watching and indigenous fynbos are at their best from July to October.

What Tintswalo Atlantic costs

  • The rates start from about R4685 per person sharing with dinner and breakfast.
