“Heavenly”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

In the last month I have had the pleasure of visiting this property twice - once for dinner and once for dinner and a stay-over. It's hard to sum up the beauty of this property in words; it definitely needs to be experienced first-hand. Set on the water's edge, with nothing but nature surrounding you and one of the best views Cape Town has to offer, this hotel is idyllic. A great team ensure impeccable attention to detail and that every request is met; the rooms are spacious, with beautiful, luxurious finishes and decor, and the food is absolutely superb. As someone who lives in Hout Bay (with Tintswalo a less than five minute drive from my home), I felt as if I'd been transported to a remote island the minute I arrived (and certainly not 25 minutes away from Cape Town CBD). This property certainly has the wow-factor; if you can't book a stay over at least enquire about dinner (but I can assure you now, you won't want to go home after dessert!).

When searching for i high end hotel to stay at on the Cape Town Coastline, the options seem endless as beautiful rooms + views are what all the hotels pride themselves on. The one that stands out above the rest as the quintessential level of opulence when it comes to your boutique hotels in Cape Town and its surrounds is Tintswalo Atlantic. My wife an i are local residents of South African and have had the privilege of traveling and staying at some of the best hotels in and around our country. We recently attended a wedding at Tintswalo Atlantic that was unlike any wedding we have been to before. The staff were incredible and always on hand to top up a drink or help with any other needs, the decor and surrounds constantly have you experiencing a new moment of 'awe' as you come around each corner and finally the positioning of the lodge as a whole (on the western shoreline of Hout Bay) is an untouched paradise making you feel as though you are in your own little paradise with views to suit. Thank you to the Tintswalo Atlantic Team for giving us the best weekend of our lives (thus far). : )

There are actually no words I can put to paper that would describe and explain how magnificient Tintswalo is. We got married at Tintswalo Atlantic on 5th April 2014 and it was simply out of this world. The day was perfection from start to finish, thanks to Melissa, Ryno and Tanya together with the Tintswalo staff, we can honestly say from the bottom of our hearts that the day was everything and even more than we could of ever dreamt for. The friendliness, hospitality, service, excellent food and overall experience was truly amazing. Nothing ever being too much for them - always happy to help and accommodate where possible, making your every dream come true... I would get married here, over and over again & would recommend it to any bride out there!!!!

They say that "life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away" & this is one of them, from the minute we arrived at Tintswalo to when we sadly had to leave.
I will definitely be back and all our guest will be visiting too, as everyone was simply blow away with the venue, the staff, sensational food & the exceptional accommodation (simply out of this world) - attention to detail in each Suite is unbelievable.... Neville & Danielle Sparrow

Great staff with a friendly smile. The restaurant offers personalised service and prepared smoothies and breakfast to our specifications. Did not have apple juice, so got fresh apples and made us fresh apple juice - the best ever. The rooms and views are spectacular. During the evening a beautiful fire was made in each of our bedrooms - what a touch.

Every detail, from the eco-friendly ethos to the impeccable service has been thought through with the utmost attention to detail at this beautiful hotel.

The location cannot be beaten - right on the water with views over the bay and of the amazing Sentinel mountain.

The food is mouthwatering and the rooms are opulent yet cosy.

Perfect for romantic getaways or luxurious stays - just a 25 minute drive from the city.

Room Tip: Each room is unique, decorated to the theme of famous international islands, so browse through the g...

Idyllic location, right on the ocean. Beautiful spacious suites with amazing views. Friendly and welcoming staff. Some of the best food I've had in Cape Town. All round this place is just incredible. I left totally relaxed and sad to be going. This is a must see, even if you just make a booking for a breakfast/dinner/lunch. Just make sure you check it out.

Attended a wedding event here and had an amazing meal and drinks evening. The staff were super accomodating and did everything to make it an amazing evening. The view from the deck is outstanding, it is absolutely perfect for viewing a breath taking sunset. The decor is a mix of modern and shabby chic which seems to work beautifully, chandeliers suspended from trees, over size chairs and sofas... a lovely place to stay. It is at the bottom of a very steep hill but the hotel have a shuttle that takes you up and down so it is fully accessible. A lovely place to stay...
