Tintswalo Atlantic has an exceptional location in Cape Town, on the water’s edge just off the picturesque Chapman’s Peak drive on the Cape Peninsula. This ultra-stylish and romantic retreat looks out over Hout Bay towards the towering peak of The Sentinel, bathed in pink and purple at sunset. Nestled unobtrusively between the Atlantic and the slopes of the Table Mountain fynbos reserve, Tintswalo Atlantic offers absolute seclusion and relaxation, with the ocean literally a stone’s throw away from the pebbled beach! Whale watching is an effortless activity between July and November.
This is the perfect destination for visitors wanting to relax right beside the ocean – either at the start of their holiday or at the end after a few days on safari. Though it is not close to the city centre – 25 mins drive to the city and the Waterfront, its unique location means that you are well placed to explore the many attractions of the Cape Peninsula as well as Kirstenbosch gardens, the picturesque village of Hout Bay and the Constantia wine estates all nearby. Alternatively you don’t have to stir from this oasis – just lie by the swimming pool, or enjoy a drink on the terrace listening to the gently lapping waves.
Accommodation at Tintswalo Atlantic
The 10 suites and the two bedroom Presidential Suite are authentically decorated to emulate the experiences and colours of various well-known islands of the world. The air-conditioned suites are quite literally, situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The suites offer supreme comfort and privacy with extra length beds, air conditioning and a private deck. Spacious en-suite bathrooms, all with double basins, large showers and bath also enjoy an uninterrupted marine view.
Tintswalo Atlantic is the only lodge within this fynbos reserve, known worldwide for its extraordinary rich and diverse fauna and flora. No trees were removed and not so much as a branch was cut from the Milkwood trees that grace the shoreline.
In the Shangaan language, Tintswalo means “the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace bestowed upon someone offering you a meaningful and worthy gift.” I think that about sums it up!
