I am writing this following the devastating wild fire which swept through this beautiful area destroying part of this unique hotel. They are rebuilding and it will be as lovely as before.
There are some places in the world that provide a level of luxury that money alone cannot buy. Tintswalo is one of those rare places. The location is simply stunning, nestling on the rocks at the bottom of Chapmans Peak Road, looking out across Hout Bay to the harbour on the other side. The hotel was built with eco credentials and from the exterior you have no idea what awaits you within. However, from the moment you enter into the reception area, dining room and terrace and then your room, you will be blown away by the great sense of style, space, comfort, the use of colour, lovely decorative touches, the proximity to nature and the ocean.
The waves break onto the rocks just metres away from your bedroom terrace and the smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves lull you to sleep every night. In the bathroom, partially decorated with a riot of seashells, your roll top bath sits alongside a glass wall with views over the sea.
All the staff are friendly, efficient and professional whilst maintaining a lovely relaxed vibe. They really could not have been more helpful.
I booked exclusive use of the hotel for 3 days for a birthday event, and I could not have been more thrilled by everybody's determination to make the occasion just as fabulous as it possibly could be. They made everybody feel very special. Oh, and the food is delicious!
When Tintswalo re-opens we shall be amongst first guests.
