Profile: Camps Bay

Profile: Camps Bay

Camps Bay is Cape Town’s premier tourist hotspot, neatly seated between the sparkling Atlantic Ocean and the rough and rugged Twelve Apostles mountain range. Its star attraction is its palm-fringed beach, where bronzed bodies play volleyball, and swimmers frolic in the warm waves.

Just a short drive from Cape Town’s city center, the village-like suburb boasts its own trendy selection of bars, restaurants, and shops, many of which dot the main drag, Victoria Road. Come sunset you can unwind with a cocktail, and then take your seat for an evening of musicals, cabaret, or comedy, at Theatre On The Bay.

    POD is absolutely the most beautiful hotel I've had the pleasure to stay. The service is beyond belief, attention to every detail. The location is perfect. The beach is right across the street and restaurants and shops are an easy walk. If you're in doubt about where to stay in Cape Town, do book POD.

    Best of both worlds

    Staff amazing, room sensational, views exceptional and location brilliant. Highly recommend this place. It was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Ideally located if you want to use the beach and only be a short trip out of the city. Best of both worlds. Thanks to the staff at POD. Courteous, friendly and helpful. Really make you feel welcome. Go and see for yourselves.

    Almost don't want to review for sake of keeping this place a secret but the boutique-like view overlooking the water, coziness, and absolutely incredible staff all make this place feel like a hidden gem.

    I stayed with my boyfriend at POD Camps Bay and was blown away by the experience. The service was top notch; even before our arrival, staff coordinated our getting to the hotel and accommodated different check-in times. They left a gift in our room for our anniversary. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. What really blew me away was when I tried to order dinner from a local restaurant during our stay for room delivery. The restaurant was unable to accommodate, and POD's staff then took it upon themselves to have the kitchen whip up EXACTLY what I'd ordered. Amazing. Would 100 percent recommend.

    Amazing spot in Camps Bay!

    My boyfriend and i had such a lovely stay at POD Camps Bay and my only regret was not staying longer. We got automatically upgraded upon checking in and had a room with a view of both the mountains and the ocean. The location could not have been better in regards to being in Camps Bay. The hotel offered so many additional amenities such as free wine in the mini fridge (!!). The person at the front desk booked us a very last minute taxi ride to the airport at an extremely reasonable price. Lovely staff, lovely hotel, lovely location!
