If privacy, exclusivity and an uninterrupted sea views are your idea of a South African vacation or honeymoon spoil, then Tintswalo Atlantic is your kind of luxury boutique lodge. Situated at the bottom of a steep seaside cliff, with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, Tintswalo Atlantic is situated in the Table Mountain National Park (a World Heritage Site) and is one of a handful of buildings within this protected zone. Guests are transported from the central reception parking in the hotel vehicle down a steep and winding road to the hotel to a tucked away escape from it all.
Here, hidden in a grove of Milkwood trees is a luxury escape from it all, where time stands still for the limited number of guests who can be hosted here at any one time. With just 10 suites, plus a lavish Presidential Suite, those wanting to get away from it all have certainly come to the right place. Each spacious suite (named for an island) is individually decorated in sumptuous fabrics and fittings befitting of the lodge’s five-star status while personal touches abound ensuring the continuation of the home-from-home atmosphere the Tintswalo brand is known and loved for.
The lodge is ideal for couples wanting together time and honeymooners of course and is also popular for groups travelling together. With its deck perched over the water and dining areas that allow guests to drink in the view over breakfast or dinner, days are spent in a contemplative state, wondering whether to arrange a massage (a therapist is available on site) or whether to venture out into the natural spoils of Table Mountain National Park. Of course the city is a mere fifteen minutes drive away too if the bright lights beckon.
World-class cuisine, superb wine choices and impeccable attention to detail are part and parcel of the offering at this luxe lodge that embraces its hidden position so elegantly.
Well-loved as an exclusive venue for intimate soirees or weddings, Tintswalo Atlantic is certainly a bucket list lodge – no destination in Cape Town can be closer to the ocean.
