The five-star Tintswalo Atlantic Luxury Boutique Hotel enjoys a magnificent oceanfront location on the world-famous Chapman's Peak Road in Hout Bay, South Africa. The seaside town of Hout Bay in Cape Town is beautifully framed by scenic mountain ranges, overlooking a sheltered bay, and is home to a famous sandy beach. The Cape Town city centre and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront are only a 15 minutes' drive away along the spectacular coastal road leading via Llandudno and Camps Bay.

At this secluded seaside hideaway the spray of the waves, as it crashes against the rocks, can be felt. The hotel nestles in the Cape Mountain Reserve and surrounded by a dense variety of unique fauna and flora. From this pristine location, the hotel offers breathtaking views of the ocean, the mountains, and beach of Hout Bay, and from the outdoor deck, guests can enjoy the most magnificent sunrises and sunsets.

The well-appointed and welcoming Luxury Suites reflect inspiration from famous islands around the world. The spacious and comfortable Luxury Suites are located virtually on the edge of the ocean and thus offer beautiful sea views. With a bit of luck, whales and dolphins, and seals can be spotted from here. 

The Luxury Suites offer an extra-length double or twin bed, an en-suite bathroom, air conditioners, and a private deck. The boutique hotel's Presidential Suite is uniquely decorated and furnished to imitate the colours and experiences of the Elba and Corsica islands in the Mediterranean. The spacious entrance hall leads off to two separate en-suite rooms, which are connected by a lounge. Both bedrooms and the room at the Presidential Suite face the ocean and provide stunning views.
