If you're headed to Cape Town, the first decision to make is whether you want to be in the city or the upmarket suburbs. City hotels put you close to the waterfront, but it's a working harbor rather than something that belongs on a postcard. Camps Bay, on the other hand, is right on the ocean. It's also quieter and...

Pod is an excellent option for travellers visiting Cape Town and Camps bay. This little boutique hotel is clean, modern and warm. Like most little boutique hotels, the staff believes in a high degree of personal attention on their guests (staff remember your likes and dislikes, what you like to eat and drink etc) . The staff helped us plan... More

A beautiful and luxury boutique hotel. Our room was just amazing with fantastic views of the sea. It was pure luxury and worth every penny. The staff were also amazing and couldn't do more to help or please us. Breakfast was excellent and again the staff were very helpful. Can't wait to go back.

I cannot more highly recommend POD in Camps Bay. The location, the room, the staff, the service . . .everything was excellent. We were greeted with offers of a drink and the service never stopped from there. I requested an iron to press a couple of shirts but was told, for liability reasons, that I couldn't use one in the...

Everything about the hotel was fantastic. The room was decorated and designed wonderfully sleek and modern. While it's not a direct full on ocean view, you get a really good view of it on the balcony and even for the room from the floor to ceiling windows. The staff was delightful and were very helpful with recommendations and were all... More

This was the best hotel experience we had in Cape Town in all the 13 times we've been staying in different 4 and 5 star hotels in the Cape Town region. The interior and layout is esceptional and the ipod docking station adds a nice touch Leon & Adre van Biljon

POD is an exceptionally well designed and well run boutique hotel in Camps Bay. The design is striking - functional modern well done.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cool beyond question is POD Camps Bay. A true Africa original realised in a stunning set of decor elements, POD is both raw yet polished.See naked Africa design timber dropping into stone, shifting into glass, imbuing a sense of seaside sophistication so often attempted but so rarely achieved.15 modern suites and rooms share the spoils of idyllic mountain and ocean views. Truly surprising is POD’s proximity to the famous and ever energised Camps Bay beachfront, just a few light footsteps away.It is little wonder that POD appears on the Condé Nast Hot List 2011, and finds its place among Tatler’s 101 Best Hotels in the World.Facilities:POD Camps Bay offers modern and stylish rooms which include the following amenities: AC, Under-floor heating, rain shower, ultra slim 40’ flat screen TV, satellite TV channels, DVD player, ipod docking station, WiFi, Nespresso & tea station and a complimentary mini bar and room snacks.The hotel boasts a large pool overlooking the Camps Bay beach, a wellness room and a gym which offers both cardio and toning equipment.Rates include:Breakfast, unlimited tea, coffee and mineral water. Uncapped WiFi and secure underground parking.Services:24 hour reception, concierge, business services, laundry and dry cleaning, airport and city shuttle, luggage storage. ... more   less
