Tintswalo re-opens it’s doors to the public on 01 October
Award-winning 5-star boutique lodge, Tintswalo Atlantic is getting ready to reopen its doors to the public on the first of October following renovations. We obviously couldn’t say no to the opportunity of experiencing it ourselves and based on that, we’re able to tell you luxury is in the lodge’s DNA.
Nestled at the base of the ocean-facing Table Mountain National Park and at the water’s edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the lodge will treat its guests with magnificent views of the ocean and mountains.
The lodge already has a polished reputation as the most dramatic and romantic destination in Southern Africa. Many choose it for special occasions such as weddings, honeymoons, and romantic getaways. It has 10 beautifully styled luxury suites and one 2-bedroom suite, all aesthetically drawing inspiration from the world’s best islands.
The lodge also boasts a heated pool with ocean view. Otherwise, you also have an option to go chill by the beach.
Wine aficionados have an opportunity to enjoy the Cape’s finest selection of wine varietals. For nature lovers or adventurers like us, there are hiking trails from the lodge and many more activities in close proximity to the lodge.
Driving in, we noticed that the entrance is a bit further up than where we parked but luckily for us as royalty (for the night at least) we were picked up by a special driver who dropped us straight at the lodge’s entrance. A drive that took us about 5 minutes.
We were booked in Luxury Island 3, titled the Robben Island room. It’s a full en-suite room with a balcony, wood-burning fireplace, and premium sea view. The decor combines neon and neutral colours effortlessly on the bed and on sofas. The walls complete the look with paintings that bear same colour mashup. The room has that feel at home vibe about it. The lovely staff cracked up our fireplace to help us keep warm and comfortable during one of Mother city’s coldest nights.
The hotel entrance is a few metres away from Chapman’s Drive, so after settling in, we went for a short drive through the scenic road. Upon our return, we dived in for sunset canapes and cocktails on the main deck.
We watched the sunset, marveled at the beautiful mountains in front of us while appreciating the sound of the ocean. Few hours later, we found ourselves sitting for a three-course dinner prepared by incredibly talented Chef, Thando Jaxa. The fireplace was cracking and we enjoyed our meals while being serenaded with sweet melodies.
After a relaxing dinner, it was only fitting to take a long and relaxing bath.
