Tintswalo Atlantic is undoubtedly one of Cape Town’s best sunset spots. A magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean is just one of this tranquil haven’s many assets.

After a kitchen fire destroyed the main section of the lodge in February 2019, the good news is that this superb Chapman’s Peak Drive boutique hotel now re-opens for business on 1 October 2019.

Coinciding with the re-launch, Tintswalo Atlantic is taking a new marketing approach to focus on resident guests only. In addition, more accessible room rates have been introduced to invite guests to immerse themselves in the full Tintswalo hospitality experience. Room rates include bed and breakfast and start at R6500 per room per night (low season 1 May to 31 August); R9600 (high season), R11500 (peak season 15 December to 15 January).

Luxury, privacy and seclusion

Says CEO, Lisa Goosen: ‘With tragedy comes opportunity and after the fire the re-launch has provided us with the prospect of fine-tuning our product offering. Tintswalo Atlantic is synonymous with luxury, privacy and seclusion. This is what we will highlight as our service promise. We’d like to present guests with a bespoke and exclusive, private lodge experience, complete with the warm South African hospitality and personal service our brand is known for.”

“Family owned and managed, Tintswalo Atlantic is a magical, emotive place. The sensation of love, gratitude and peace is what we’d like for our guests to experience when they stay with us. It is a Tintswalo tradition for every guest to be invited to make a wish before they leave this special place, by casting a pebble into the ocean and taking this special moment away with you.”

Exclusive Tintswalo Atlantic Wednesday Lunch

Non-resident guests will be accommodated once a week only at the Tintswalo Atlantic Where else in the World Wednesday Lunch, where a limited number of casual diners are welcome by prior reservation. Due to its limited availability and exclusivity, the WWW Lunch is destined to be one of the most sought-after lunch experiences in Cape Town.

Moving away from traditional fine dining, Tintswalo diners may expect wholesome and fresh, seasonal cuisine. Honest and uncomplicated seaside fare is served in a relaxed environment, complemented by an award-winning wine list. The 3-course lunch is offered at R960 per person. Resident guests will have the option of booking for lunch and dinner daily.

A maximum of 24 resident guests are accommodated at Tintswalo Atlantic in 10 Islands Suites and a 2-bedroom Villa. Suites are individually designed and decorated and named after popular islands – Robben Island, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Java, Corsica and Sicily.

Public areas have been decorated in signature blue and turquoise shades by the owners, mother and daughter team Gaye Corbett and Lisa Goosen.

All suites have a lounge area with a wood burning fireplace, a tea/coffee station with espresso machine, as well as a private deck overlooking the ocean and the pebbled beach below. Spacious en-suite bathrooms also have sea views and walk-in showers, his-and-hers basins and huge Victorian baths with fragrant soaps and pampering bath products.

Also included in the rate is wi-fi and extravagant full breakfasts, as well as the signature Sundowner Cocktail of the Day with a selection of canapés. Room service, in-room massages, transfers and a range of sightseeing excursions are available too.
