When you are instructed to leave your car at the top of the hill/cliff as you will be driven down to the lodge you might wonder where on earth you are being taken. That was my thought as we set of down the steep and winding cliff road to Tintswalo Atlantic. When we reached the bottom we realised that maybe this is done in an effort to keep this serene place secret from prying eyes. Completely secret and private this beautiful lodge is right on the waters edge with no other buildings near to disturb it. A prime spot for proposals and couples wanting to get away for a little romance, you would never know that this gorgeous boutique property existed if you had not been told. Each of the cleverly decorated bedrooms takes it's name and decor inspiration from an island somewhere in the world. They all look out onto the sea and have their own private terraces and are linked to the main lodge by little wooden walkways. The pool is set slightly further away from the lodge to give people privacy from diners at the restaurant, and wherever you are in this romantic property you will hear the sea lapping against the rocks. For total peace and seclusion this is definitely the place to visit. A very magical spot!
Perched on stilts between ancient milkwood trees, the ten wood-and-glass suites and two-bedroom presidential suite are so close to the pounding waves that it's possible to toss pebbles into the rock pools from your private deck. Each room is inspired by an island around the world; yet given the breathtaking views, themed rooms seem like an unnecessary distraction. Beds are vast, and sea-view tubs and huge showers provide an illusion of spaciousness. Although there isn't a pool big enough to swim in or a private beach directly below the lodge, guests will enjoy whale watching, romantic dinners, and outdoor massages. If you tire of that, a complimentary car service can whisk you to Cape Town.
