POD Camps Bay, the ultimate South African seaside experience
Ultra-modern designs and green architecture greet you at POD Camps Bay, but the stunning views from the balconies are even better: the beaches of Camps Bay, Table Mountain, and the seemingly endless Atlantic Ocean. Called by some the African Riviera, Camps Bay is a vibrant strip of beaches, gourmet experiences, and nightlife half an hour away from Cape Town’s International Airport. Superbly set at the meeting point of beach and mountain, POD Camps Bay offers the ultimate urban seaside experience.
Comfort, Elegance and Stunning Views
You can choose between seventeen different rooms, all of them stylishly modern and unique. Enjoy superb mountain views from the compact elegance of Mountain Rooms, which pack in 22 m2 a king-sized bed, an open plan en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, and complimentary mini-bar and treats. Offering both convenience and value, these rooms are ideal for quick stays or weekend getaways.
For your own private balcony with some of the best sea views in Cape Town, you can upgrade to a 40 m2 luxury room with underfloor heating and Nespresso and tea station, or trade the sea view for a 45 m2 luxury room with plunge pools and sun bathing patios. The most striking rooms at POD Camps Bay, however, are 75 m2 Deluxe Suites which open up to a private balcony that offers spectacular views of the beach, ocean and mountains. With their bath tub and dual walk-in rain showers, these are ideal for longer stays.
One of the key words at POD Camps Bay is sustainability. Regardless of the room you choose, you can enjoy sustainable heating, lighting, and water circulation systems, such as solar heating for the water system, electronically-controlled water circulation pumps, shower-heads with flow restrictors, and LED lighting, among others. Also good to know is that daily housekeeping operations are carried out using environmentally-friendly chemicals, and that the hotel has a tree-planting programme to account for its carbon footprint.
Bar, Pool, Beach
The hotel’s cocktail bar and heated lap pool are two easy enjoyments that await all guests, but you’ll probably want to hit the Camps Bay beach right away. As one of South Africa’s best-known and most exciting beaches, Camps Bay is vibrant with colors and beautiful people, while in the background, mountains offer the perfect backdrop for spectacular sunsets.
POD Camps Bay includes beach services, so you don’t have to worry about useful beach paraphernalia such as mats, towels, or umbrellas. Bask in the sun, splash in the water, and float on the waves for as long as you like. POD Camps Bay is within walking distance of the beach.
Cape Town Awaits
The many other attractions of Cape Town are within driving distance of POD Camps Bay, as are some of the best restaurants in the city, including The Round House, Paranga, The Codfather, Aubergine, Kloof Street House, and Chef’s Warehouse. These offer a wide selection of food, from gourmet and decadent menus to traditional South African dishes, flavored with wines from the wine farms of Stellenbosch and Robben Island.
Stylish, sustainable, and surrounded by natural beauty, POD Camps Bay is a great alternative to Cape Town’s downtown hotels. It’s an inspired choice for couples who want a quick getaway filled with beach delights, or a long, indulgent holiday at the beach.
