Tintswalo Atlantic Re-Opens After Devastating Fire

Words: Crush

Good news for travellers, Cape Town’s iconic boutique hotel on Chapman’s Peak Drive, Tintswalo Atlantic re-opens for business on 1 October 2019.  The hotel has been closed since February when a kitchen fire destroyed the main section of the lodge.

Those who have visited Tintswalo prior to the February fire will notice changes to the foyer and deck areas. Having been completely destroyed, these have been re-built with a renewed and refreshed look, while still maintaining that signature Tintswalo elegance.

Room rates include bed and breakfast and start at R6500 per room per night (low season 1 May to 31 August); R9600 (high season), R11500 (peak season 15 December to 15 January).

A Word from the CEO

Says CEO, Lisa Goosen, “With tragedy comes opportunity and after the fire the re-launch has provided us with the prospect of fine-tuning our product offering. Tintswalo Atlantic is synonymous with luxury, privacy and seclusion. This is what we will highlight as our service promise.”

The aim to present guests with a bespoke and exclusive, private lodge experience, complete with the warm South African hospitality and personal service our brand is known for. 

Rebuilt public areas have been freshly decorated in the signature blue and turquoise shades by the owners, mother and daughter team Gaye Corbett and Lisa Goosen.

Lisa goes on to say, “Family owned and managed, Tintswalo Atlantic is a magical, emotive place. The sensation of love, gratitude and peace is what we’d like for our guests to experience when they stay with us. It is a Tintswalo tradition for every guest to be invited to make a wish before they leave this special place, by casting a pebble into the ocean and taking this special moment away with you.”
