As the only hotel permitted to operate within the boundaries of the word-renowned Heritage site, the lodge enjoys the very best of magnificent, panoramic ocean views, as well as access to the natural beauty found along the mountainside's winding hiking trails.

We spent two nights at Tinswalo and this was on the special rate offered What an fabulous destination The room was immaculate and the service from the minute we arrived at the top gate was excellent. This is a world class destination with world class accommodation, cuisine and service. The new Chefs warehouse dinning experience is superb and I love the fact that you can choose as many plates as you like Overall I think it’s amazing that when you are offered a discounted experience due to the current situation, you receive the top service and facilities We will be back!!

This is such a special place to unwind. It will be a challenge to find a better location than this to have a well deserved break. The views of the bay from your balcony are amazing with the waves crushing only meters away. Suites are luxurious and decorated tastefully. We stayed in Cousine with the turquoise Seychelles theme which was quite fitting for the setting. Food in the restaurant was great with the a delicious small plates menu catering for every choice. The small menu does get a bit boring after day two. It is great for a special meal but we found it a bit pricey and boring for a longer stay. However which lacked at a lodge with only 10 suites to take care of was the personal touch. Although all staff were friendly, after 5 days nobody knew who we were. Check-in was impersonal and we did not feel welcomed at all. We celebrated our anniversary which was clearly stated on our checkin forms but was never acknowledged. I ordered some flowers beforehand which arrived the day after our actual celebration. Small things like running out of soap and toiletpaper, the dustbin not cleaned, not replacing sugar and our tv not working for 3 days just did not add up to the 5 star experience we expected. Nonetheless we enjoyed our stay immensely, feeling rested and relaxed when we headed home. We will certainly return one day hoping the service wil be stepped up a notch which will make this a six star establishment.

This property epitomises luxury on every level of the experience but for me it was the little things that made it special. The staff are wonderful and go the extra mile to make sure your every whim is met and you can truly relax and feel like you are home except for the fact your every need is being met. The culinary team deliver an exceptional taste journey matched with a great wine list. Oh and did I mention the views!!! My next visit won't be soon enough.

Tintswalo are blessed with one of the best views in South Africa, the ocean, the mountain and the most amazing sunsets. Each room has an unique theme and decoration with an balcony on the ocean. The inhouse dining offers an fine dining experiece in the small romantic restaurant. The nicest thing about coming to Tintswalo is that you can enjoy your weekend here without having to travel anywhere. The latest edition to their remarkable offer is the hotpool on the beach.

3.5+ stars. Food was good, some things were great and others average. We stayed in the Lamu room, which offered stunning views. The room was clean and a nod to east Africa, but the glued shells on the wall in the bathroom was kitschy. eek. The overall decor of the restaurant with the exposed wood beams and coastal outside decor was bizarre. Get rid of vases with fake flowers and add natural fynbos. Service in the dining room was inconsistent, though always polite and courteous. Although they have the necessary Covid-19 protocols in place, I'm not sure all the staff is taking it to heart. We even had an employee (manager?) mention that he thinks it's an overaction because he doesn't in fact know someone who has had the virus. I think it's a good idea to leave your political conspiracy theories to rest when talking with guests. We do know people who have had COVID and so were quite annoyed by having this conversation during our breakfast. Dinner had white linens that felt clean (replaced between. guests), whereas breakfast had fabric table runners out and I'm not sure that is the most sanitary place for silverware. I realize when you go out during this time you have to assume some risk of the virus, but it's a good idea to keep the table surface as clean as possible. There is not much to do but relax in this setting, which is what we wanted. We walked along Chapman's Peak and just hung out at the room and had a spa service. I think 2 nights is perfect. It is a beautiful place to celebrate a milestone with a special someone.
