POD Camps Bay

Visit hotel website
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Cool beyond question is POD Camps Bay. A true Africa original realised in a stunning set of decor elements, POD is both raw yet polished. See naked Africa design timber dropping into stone, shifting into glass, imbuing a sense of seaside sophistication so often attempted but so rarely achieved. 17 modern suites and rooms share the spoils of idyllic mountain and ocean views. Truly surprising is POD's proximity to the famous and ever energised Camps Bay beachfront, just a few light footsteps away. It is little wonder that POD appears on the Condé Nast Hot List 2011, and finds its place among Tatler's 101 Best Hotels in the World.

The staff is very cordial and helpful. Hotel is small, something I prefer. Fruits for breakfast are great, but cheese and bread could be better. Very nice room, but the one I had towards the street is quite loud. Location is perfect - a few...More
