We selected the POD Camps Bay hotel for our final two nights in Cape Town on our honeymoon. The location is superb and we loved being close to the beach. It gave us a new perspective on Cape Town, having spent the first two nights in the City Bowl. The Pod is ultra modern and its design is very sleek.... More

Where else do they provide a beach bag with all you need for the beach (including flip flops !!) ? One... More

The hotel is beautifully designed, amazingly located in front of camps bay beach and with all necessary items to provide comfort. But the really outstanding part is the service. I can only say its overall the best hotel service I ever had. Congrats !!

Staying at POD was a truly wonderful experience. POD had arranged a driver to collect us from the airport, something I would most certainly recommend after our long haul flight. From the moment we arrived the level of hospitality was unparalleled. Architecturally modern, POD oozes luxury creating a calm and serene space in both the common areas and the guest... More
