    Cape Town Hidden Gem The Tintswalo Atlantic Should be On Your 2022 Destination Bucket List

    Collectively, the suites are named after the islands – Antigua, Corsica, Cousine, Elba, Ithaca, Lamu, Robben, Sicily, and Zanzibar Island. Antigua was our room for the evening and ironically the only island on the list that I had actually visited, causing a flood of dopamine and happy memories. First steps into the room and we were inundated with a wave of colour. 

    A tasteful blend of turquoise walls, warm sun-yellow accents and oversized furniture, created an aesthetic of unpretentious extravagance; looks exquisite but I wasn’t afraid to make myself at home. 

    Maritime themes and shell motifs echo throughout the lodge, however it is the unexpected vintage fireplaces and neoclassical chandeliers that add another element of warmth and calm to each room. All suites come complete with a large terrace, which is virtually the only thing to separate you from the ocean waves. 

    We dumped our bags and made the most of golden hour with complimentary sundowners, taking in the unique panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Sentinel Mountain Peak and the blue bowl of Hout Bay. The ambient noise of the ocean was enough to hypnotise us into a state of contentment. This was truly the first time I had felt this type of relaxation since before the pandemic.

    Dinner had been pre booked at the renowned, Michelin star worthy restaurant, Chefs Warehouse, located on site and in association with the Tintswalo Atlantic. Described as Cape Town’s best five-star restaurant with views to match, I can confirm that this dining experience was like nothing I had ever experienced before. 

    The postcard-worthy setting is synonymous with the restaurant, as Chef Braam Beyers and his team created a menu aligned to the restaurant’s locality, drawing on the ocean for both produce and inspiration. 

    The menu is an award-winning formula consisting of eight dishes split into four courses and designed to be shared, otherwise described as tapas at its finest. Every dish was stunningly presented and cleverly thought out, as well as creating flavours that I didn’t know existed.
