For my boyfriend’s birthday we decided to spend the night away. I choose Tintswalo Atlantinc, a hotel very close to CT just outside Hout Bay. We had an amazing stay. For starters, to get there from CT you drive through Chapman’s Peak, which is the most beautiful drive you can do in the Cape Town area. Whether you stay in this hotel or not make sure you do the Chapman’s Peak drive!
The food at Tintswalo was mouthwatering, the service was great, the pool was so perfect, it really was a lovely stay. Best of all you get free wine (of a certain brand called Protea, which was delicious) throughout all your stay. The thing is that it is expensive so we only stayed one night. I recommend this for a special night or celebration, the price was very high and if you book during peak season (which is summer, Nov-Feb) it might be even higher, but if you have the money go for it! What you can also try to do is book to have lunch or dinner and then ask if you can stay the whole day at the pool. I really enjoyed it here. The only thing I didn’t like as much was the interior decor, but once you see the view of the room you get over it immediately! I hope you get a chance to visit.
