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 level of service and hospitality my wife and I experienced at this boutique hotel left us reeling from the first day of our stay. The moment we entered the POD we realized we booked the right choice. Situated in Camps Bay, it’s only about a 10-15 minute drive to Cape Town pro

Friendliness of all the staff. The rooms are amazing. If the decoration / look is minimalist everything else goes beyond your expectations. Service in room like nowhere else ! Worth every cent. Can only recommend it !

We had a luxury room for two nights and were very satisfied with the experience. The room was large with a nice balcony that had 'partial' sea and mountain views. The building itself looks directly out onto an old apartment building across the street, but you can see and hear the

What about the water crisis and severe draught that Cape Town is experiencing? How is the hotel handling this and how does it affect the hotel? I have plans to travel there this June 2018
Dear Kalifa282003, Thank you for your enquiry. We understand your concerns regarding the current drought in the Western Cape. Although we are encouraging guests to be conscious of their water usage, we can confirm that the operations of our hotel have not been affected. Our pools, laundry and other basic services are being supplied by our own borehole water. We have also made arrangements for a water supply from a non-drought area to be transported to us, should our borehole water not be sufficient. In addition, we have a UV water filtration system in place along with adequate bottled spring water stockpiled for drinking purposes. Most restaurants have proactively implemented water savings and water augmentation solutions to ensure ongoing availability of water in their establishments. You will still be able to enjoy primary tourism attractions such as our iconic Table Mountain, Cape Point, and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, to name a few. Cape Towns’ tourism sector contributes enormously to our economy and supports approximately 300 000 jobs. In peak seasons, international visitors only add 1% to the population of the Western Cape and if all visitors adhere to the suggested guidelines, the impact which our guests would place on the situation would be insignificant. We can assure you that the drought will not adversely affect our guests' stay with us. Warm regards, Micaela and Meagan (POD Management) +27 21 438 8550

I'm looking for party and nightlife activities, so does the hotel has this kind of activities.. Also, what about the places around the hotel?
Dear Mohammad H, Thank you for your enquiry. Kindly note that POD does not offer nightlife activities, however, the nightlife is only a mere 10 - 15 minutes drive. We would be happy to assist you with recommendations upon booking. There are restaurants and bars on the main Camps Bay strip, within walking distance from POD. A local favorite in Camps Bay is "Cafe Caprice" which is popular on weekends. I trust the above was of assistance to you. Warm regards, The POD Team

Hi I am planning to come at the end of November and wondered what the weather is like? How long does it take to get to this hotel from the airport? And how much does it cost by taxi to get to the city centre? Thank you
Dear RochieRoch, Thank you for your valued enquiry. November is the beginning of summer and end of the rainy season. The weather can vary but usually it is pleasant and warm. The average daytime temperature ranges between 22-25 °C however, it may also get quite windy towards the start of December. It is a 30 minute drive from the airport (traffic dependant). A cab from POD to the city is roughly a 10 minute drive and shouldn't cost more than R150.00 one way. Should you wish to receive a quote for a stay with us, please email us directly. Warm regards, POD Management

Hi I have a late departure on my last day(10pm), I saw that you guys have a late departure room, would you advice to use that or book another night for comfort? I know staying late/checking out late depends on your room availability. Thanks!
Dear Jeck0y, Thank you for your valued enquiry. The late departure room is equipped with a shower, restroom and small lounge area. Most of our guests only use this area to freshen up in and then relax around our main areas prior to departure. Should you prefer comfort, we would recommend to secure a late checkout. Kindly email us should you wish to secure a late check-out in your room booked (Subject to availability at the time of your enquiry). We look forward to hearing from you. Warm regards, POD Management

"If you have the budget, go for one of the corner rooms"
