This is where you’ll find Tintswalo, a rustic yet sophisticated, shabby-chic boutique lodge in Table Mountain National Park just outside of Cape Town, South Africa. If you’re seeking a respite from the city, Tintswalo is the right place to be. It offers a most peaceful and tranquil environment, alongside the Atlantic Ocean; which lends itself to being the perfect location for meditation and rejuvenation.
Aside from being the ideal place for relaxing, it is also one of the most romantic and intimate boutique lodges along the Atlantic Seaboard that you will find. Now, envision chandeliers, deep blue aqua colors, antique and vintage style décor; this is what you’ll discover at Tintswalo.
Many describe Tintswalo as a luxury lodge because of its rustic charm and high-end furnishings. Regardless of how it is described, one thing is for certain, it is one of the most warm and inviting hotels you’ll ever step foot in. Its suites are so close to the ocean that you can even hear the sounds of the waves. Each of its 11 luxury suites offers an ocean view and is named after an island. No two suites are exactly alike in style and design; which makes it possible for you to come back time-and-time again to stay in a different suite. Each suite also has a uniquely designed door that is sure to capture your attention.
The suites are so beautiful that you may think twice about even stepping foot back outside once inside. You will find a wood burning fireplace in each room, which further adds to the warmth of your suite; flat screen television with Cable TV, Espresso machine, mini-bar, electronic safe and more. Suites are en-suite with a separate bathtub and shower. Enjoy relaxing in the deep soaking tub with fine essential oils and bath salts while taking in views of the ocean right from the tub. This might just be the best bath you’ll ever experience. In addition to the essential oils and bath salts that are complimentary for its guests, the under floor heating is a most welcome touch when stepping out of the shower or tub on those cold winter evenings. Tintswalo has thought of everything to make your stay incredible! Your breakfast meals at Tintswalo are included in your stay. It’s almost impossible to stay without making your way to the lovely dining room where your experience is further enhanced by the culinary offerings of Executive Chef, Guy Clark.
