Tintswalo Atlantic, located on the second bend after the Chapman’s Peak toll gate on the Hout Bay side, overlooking the whole of Hout Bay and Sentinel peak. One will have to search far and wide to find a more stunning location or a more exquisite lodge!

Tintswalo Atlantic is one of three properties in the Tintswalo group, the others being Tintswalo Waterfall at Kyalami, Gauteng and Tintswalo Safari Lodge & Manor House within the Manyeleti Game Reserve in the Hoedspruit area, Mpumalanga.

Since November 2008, this tranquil haven has enchanted their guests with beautiful suites, great food, impeccable service and wonderful staff under the leadership of the management couple, Ryno & Melissa du Rand.

The lodge offers a lounge, bar, wine cellar, dining room and interactive kitchen. These areas open up onto a long wooden deck with a heated Jacuzzi pool, a variety of nooks and crannies to enjoy a cup of tea or decadent sundowner whilst enjoying the beautiful views and sound of the ocean.

They can accommodate a maximum of 50 guests for a sit down dinner or up to 80 guests for a cocktail function. Tintswalo Atlantic is popular for small wedding or private group / corporate group functions. Open to the public on prior arrangement only for breakfast, lunch or dinner based on the number of in-house guests. Cuisine range from a la carte menus to seafood feasts, all customized according to the client’s requirements and the creativity of the executive chef, Johan Lamprecht.

The deck leads to the 10 individually themed and decorated suites together with a presidential suite consisting of 2 en-suite rooms and a communal lounge. Tintswalo Atlantic thus sleep 12 guests on a single basis or 24 guests on a sharing (double) basis. It is possible to convert either Robben Island suite or Sicily Island suite into a twin configuration when required. The suites are all named after exquisite small islands around the globe which has special meaning to the owners of the Tintswalo Group, the Corbett family.

The suites are all spacious with own private decks, huge bathrooms with uninterrupted views, Tabrar & Earle bathroom amenities and it is recommended to stay at least for 2- 3 nights to really enjoy all that Tintswalo Atlantic has to offer.

This property has a 30 year concession from San Parks since 2008 and is a totally green development. There is no space for private cars at the lodge. Guests are transported from the secure car park to the lodge on arrival. The lodge can offer airport and Cape Town area transfers to in-house guests as well as restaurant visitors. Entrance at the Chapman’s Peak toll gate is R30 per vehicle from sunrise to sunset.

The peak period for whale watching is during September and October, but they are often seen earlier in the year as well. The waters in front of the lodge is a crayfish and perlemoen (abalone) sanctuary and not generally accessible. The lodge is in the process of building an additional pool area to be completed towards the end of 2011.

In the native Shangaan language Tintswalo means “the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace bestowed open someone offering you a meaningful and worthy gift”. A very accurate description for Tintswalo Atlantic indeed.
