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. 17 modern suites and rooms share the spoils of idyllic mountain and ocean views. Primely located a mere 50 meters from the silky sands of the famous Camps Bay beachfront with its trendy restaurants and bars. POD Camps Bay offers a luxurious 5 star boutique hotel experience. 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.

This hotel is in a great location in Camps Bay! It is just off the Main Street but still has rooftop views of an amazing sunset over the ocean from their bar and infinity pool. The service was great and everyone was really professional and helpful. The rooms were not huge but had plenty of space for me and my husband and were pretty luxurious. The infinity pool has perfect views to watch the sunset and have a drink before going out for dinner. Their breakfast was really good in the mornings and included. We loved our stay here and were really sad to leave, we would absolutely come back!

Hotel's Favorite
One of the best hotel stays we've ever had. Everyone was quite hospitable and went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our time there. I've seriously never interacted with such a consistently good staff across the board. The room was kept well-stocked with snacks and alcohol, all of which was included. We had a comfy bed and a fantastic waterfall shower. As this was our honeymoon, they graciously upgraded us to a larger room with a balcony and a beautiful view! We stayed immediately prior to closures related to COVID-19 and we felt that the staff made several extra precautions to ensure safety and cleanliness. We saw staff cleaning at all hours, maintaining appropriate social distancing, etc. and it made us feel very safe while we were there. We'll definitely be back again when we return to South Africa!

There is a reason why this hotel has won so many awards. It is perfect in every way. From the time that you walk into the open lobby, you feel welcome. The staff cannot do enough for you. One morning we were going on a tour and really wanted to try their lattes. They quickly made two lattes to go for us (and they were delicious). This is just one example of how they go out of their way for their guests. The rooms are the cleanest, most modern, and well-apponted I have ever seen and we have stayed in high end hotels all over the world. There are no words to describe the level of customer service. The breakfast food is delicious and don't miss out on the breakfast juice of the day! Many thanks to Micaela, Megan, Daniella, Nick, Vaughn, Adric (spelling?). You were all so special. We liked it so much that we were trying to figure out how we could stay an additional night. When we were there, we passed some of the other hotels in the area that we had considered and were soo happy that we chose POD! Just book it--you will be glad you did!!
