POD Camps Bay, Cape Town

We can’t help the hankering for luxury that courses through our veins and Camps Bay has just the trick do satisfy us. A hotel that reflects all the style, class and substance we crave: POD. This hotel, with its sensational views over the ocean on one side, and the majesty of Table Mountain on the other, is a blend of seriously stylish contemporary chic and classic rustic designs which you’ll see in the tree trunk tables resting seamlessly next to modern-styled chairs in the sleek lounge areas.


In the heart of the uber-trendy Camps Bay, with its soft sand Clifton Beaches, palm-tree lined promenades and plethora of outdoor bars, restaurants and cafés, POD is still only a short drive from Cape Town. Put simply, it’s where you want to be. What’s more, the views are nothing short of spectacular, with the shimmering ocean on one side, the idyllic Table Mountain on the other and, at night, the bright lights of the city transforming the coastline into what looks like a flickering mass of candles. Simply beautiful.

Your room

With a unique design that blends classic and contemporary, POD’s 15 rooms survey the glory of either the mountain or the sea views. Brightly lit with contemporary furniture and encompassing comfort to burrow down in, your room will certainly impress. Sink into comfy ergo-beds, lose yourself in the enormous walk-in rain shower, and in the suites, step out onto your balcony to survey the view with the sea breeze in your hair.

Why we like it

Where to start? The location, the luxury, the views, the design; it all adds up to create a special hotel that has left us truly wowed. We love the stunning pool terrace that overlooks the ocean and in the case of the suites, the plunge pools are perfect for that decadent edge to relaxation. What does it the most for us though is the style that the hotel exudes from every room. The bar and lounge area’s seating, with tree trunk tables and luxuriously comfy sofas to sink into are just perfect to enjoy a drink as you look out onto the incredible views and, together with the rooms’ designs, it left us no choice but to love POD. We know you will too.
