Sadly in 2015 Tintswalo Atlantic was destroyed in the devastating fire.
What does five star actually mean to you? What do you consider to be, or not to be a top notch five star treatment that has the X factor attached? What do you expect from fine dining and five star hotels? There are those special places around the world offering perfection that is hard to beat. It’s a moment when you can sit back and breathe a sigh of relief and say, “ah! This is just perfect!” Often this is the case when the backdrop of your surroundings is Mother Nature. The magnificent beauty of Cape Town is when nature nourishes your inner well-being.
We started off by checking into Tintswalo Atlantic where we would remain for the next week. When you step across the threshold of Tintswalo, you enter into a world of nature. It engulfs you and you immediately feel a calm sensation. Five stars!
Monday lunch was at Ellerman House, again this is paradise on earth – peaceful and breathtaking! A light lunch was followed by a wander through the garden and a sneak view of a private art collection. Five stars all the way.
Tuesday was taken up with a huge hike up the mountain from Chapman’s Peak. This hike is a must with a guide; you do not want to get lost on this magnificent mountain.
Wednesday we decided to go off to Stellenbosh to the Delaire Estate for lunch; without a doubt more than just five stars. Mr.Graff is a man of perfection who has world knowledge and experience that shows through his creation of the Delaire Estate. It is refined and breathtakingly gorgeous!
Now, let’s get down to some serious fine dining. One of the best experiences you can have is at the Chef’s Table at the Mount Nelson – or rather, in the Mount Nelson’s kitchen. This is a full on culinary experience that will subtly take your taste buds into a frenzy of delight!
The other fine dining experience that is an absolute must is at the Green House in the Cellars Huguenot. Fine dining is the total experience that starts from the moment you sit down to the moment you savour your first bite. From that point on you experience a euphoric food phenomenon, it is a gastronomical experience, a creation from the Chef and his team that will leave you spellbound, wanting to experience it again and again……
