Sheltered by ancient milkwood forests, and perched just yards from the Atlantic Ocean, this luxurious lodge enjoys an unrivalled location on the shores of the Table Mountain National Park.

The 10 suites are each named for iconic islands, with unique decor inspired by the namesake. The separate two-bedroom villa is ideal for families, offering additional privacy. The lounge, spa and pool-deck all offer superb sea views.

The on-site Chef’s Warehouse restaurant is a destination in itself, serving up flawless, contemporary tapas – local oysters, risotto, zingy salads – that draws gourmands from across the country.

The dramatic location on the shoreline of the national park comes with a downside: the lodge is fairly remote from many of the city’s attractions. It’s a 15-minute drive to the nearest suburb, while the city centre and most popular beaches are 45 minutes away.

But, for a second visit to the city, or a few days of secluded relaxation after sightseeing, the castaway charm make Tintswalo Atlantic hard to beat.
