POD Camps Bay Boutique Hotel
Cape Town is a pleasure-seekers paradise, and part of Africa, but more an extension of the Med.
The film and fashion crowds have long had an enduring love affair with photogenic Cape Town, and the accommodation that has sprung up to house them, is well equipped to deal with the diva in all of us.
Camps Bay is one of the world’s most desirable destinations, and the hip hub where you find stylish restaurants, cool bars and little shops. And POD Camps Bay Boutique Hotel is in the seaside centre of it.
Overlooking Camp Bay’s main beach, the rectilinear architecture of POD is gaining currency along the Atlantic Seaboard. With only 15 rooms, glass walls, sleek open-plan interiors and chic accessories, POD oozes style and sophistication. POD Camps Bay delivers design with a big D, and it’s terribly relaxed too, the reason why it appeals to an international, design-savvy crowd.
This ultra-hip boutique hotel has a variety of rooms from Mountain Rooms to Deluxe suites, presenting the pinnacle of modern design and architecture. Some come with private plunge pools, rain showers, patios or balconies, and all share the glory of mountain and sea views. The rooms and suites are sanctuaries of calm, with raised, wooden, pod-like structures containing a super comfortable bed.
POD Camps Bay doesn’t have a restaurant, but you can order from a restaurant nearby. Besides, POD’s breakfast is delicious. Order from the breakfast menu – try the POD Special with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, avocado, crème fraiche & chives – or enjoy the delights from the buffet. The bar, which is ideal for sunbathing during the day, offers yummy POD cocktails and is also a very cool spot to fully enjoy your night.
Watch the body conscious doing yoga on the beach from your balcony, take some time to relax by the infinity pool, or step outside your door and be in the thick of the action. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience South Africa’s most famous beach. The staff will set up sun-loungers, beach towels and umbrellas on Camps Bay Beach for you whenever you wish. Or rent a car and opt for whale watching in Hermanus, white shark diving in Gansbaai for the thrill seeker, or go wine tasting in Stellenbosch.
Good to know: we love POD’s attention to detail like POD’s list of cool places to visit, the complimentary minibar, DVD’s plus free popcorn for a lazy night plus the rose pedals, chocolates and sparkling wine for our honeymoon (this list could go on). Furthermore, POD Camps Bay has a secure basement parking (an absolute boon in peak season), there is a gym and wellness room.
So, what are you waiting for?
