Hout Bay, Cape Town
The Tintswalo Group runs an exclusive handful of properties in South Africa, two of which are in the Greater Kruger National Park. Tintswalo Atlantic is the latest addition to their portfolio, and the safari lodge influence is clearly evident in this beachfront property in Hout Bay, on the outskirts of Cape Town
About twenty minutes by car from the city, and the same from Cape Point, Hout Bay is an attractive fishing town, where forest covers the slopes of Chapman’s Peak as it meets the Atlantic coast.
Sitting right on the water’s edge, Tintswalo Atlantic is built of wood and glass in order to blend in with its surroundings, with floor-to-ceiling windows ensuring that the Atlantic view is uninterrupted.
The ten suites and the Presidential Suite are all different but share a spectacular ocean view. Such is the lodge’s proximity to the sea that you can even spot whales from your room at certain times of the year.
Tintswalo Atlantic is all about escapism and relaxation. Sink into a deep sofa or a comfy chair and listen to the sound of the sea. Feel as though you are suspended over the ocean itself as you soak in the Jacuzzi or eat lunch on the wooden deck which runs along the front of the property.
The lodge has a lounge, bar, wine cellar and dining room, and its kitchen is known as ‘interactive’, as guests are invited to take a seat at the counter to watch the chefs in action, and to pick up some tips from them. Food is taken very seriously at Tintswalo Atlantic, with lunch and dinner menus tailored to individual guests.
