From the moment we walked through the door I knew it would be as good as I had hoped - but it was even better! Sleek, minimalist, pared back luxury. A very warm welcome from the staff and that superb service continued throughout our stay. The staff on reception went out of their way to help - the daily free bottle of wine was exchanged for a Chardonney instead of Savignon. I was a little apprehensive that the Mountain room might feel claustrophobic having smaller, high windows but what a surprise - the Lions Head was perfectly framed in one window and 12 Apostles in the other. Room was not huge but perfectly and thoughtfully designed, as was the ensuite, making both feel surprisingly roomy. Beautiful toiletries. Not that we stayed in to watch their DVDs but they provide popcorn with them! Breakfast was superb and the service then and for complementary teas, coffees and waters always first class. Beautiful, if smallish pool area with loungers but they also provided very comfortable deckchairs which they took down to beach for us and collected too. Sea view rooms were fantastic and the deluxe corner sea view was simply stunning - but unless you are thinking of staying in your room 24/7, opt for Mountain View ( not mini Mountain) and stay another night or two!
- 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. 17 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. ... more less
