Tintswalo AtlanticCape Town already feels like it’s at the tip of the world, and at Tintswalo Atlantic that sensation is magnified as guests get cozy in a suite just a few meters from the ocean. Park in the lot just off the famed Chapmans Peak Drive and take a hotel van that winds its way down a steep road, dropping guests at a collection of semi-detached units. Each is themed after a different island—Zanzibar, Antigua, Sicily, and even, oddly enough, Robben (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned). The details are thoughtful, not kitschy: elaborate wood-carved headboards, seashell-encrusted bathroom walls, idyllic paintings. It’s hard to find a setting more romantic and remote, and a shuttle whisks guests to Cape Town, just over a half an hour away.
Note: Tintswalo Atlantic was mostly destroyed in a fire March 2015. The hotel rebuilt and reopened in October 2015.
