Tintswalo Atlantic | Stunning view

Dinner last night was in the bizarrely salubrious surroundings of the Tintswalo Atlantic hotel & restaurant - located at the Hout Bay end of Chapman's Peak drive. The hotel itself is one of the only buildings that has been permitted with the national park around Chapmans Peak - and to say that it is secluded is a massive understatement. A small entrance on the cliff side leads you to a car park where you wait for transport. In no time an offroader came and drove us slowly down a somewhat treacherous road to the bottom of the cliff where the hotel is located. The hotel was built on an old camp site which burnt down a few years ago. Tintswalo is run by a family group that has a lot of property around South Africa, and this hotel gives the impression of being a labour of love rather than ruthless business. They only have a thirty year lease on this location - at that time the buildings will be given back to the National Parks association. Drinks outside on the balcony and then dinner in a well-designed dining area. Not the cheapest but the quality of food and service were stunning. A very special evening.
