ELLE MUST STAY: POD BOUTIQUE HOTEL

What makes one of the world’s most desirable locations all the more impressive? Viewing it from your very own private balcony. Enter the POD Boutique Hotel, which feels less like a hotel and more a 'home away from home'. That is, if your home was decked out with modern design pieces, green architecture and a personal lounge pool. Extra plus points? The hotel is committed to environmental conservation with the use of solar panels and water circulation pumps.

The location?

Location wise you couldn't ask for more. The POD Hotel is located on the shore of the palm-lined Camps Bay beach, so prepare to watch surfers and sunbathers soaking up the African sunshine. The hotel is also only a walk away from the Camps Bay strip which has some of the best restaurants, bars and little surf shops in Cape Town.

The décor?

Behind its unmarked door, you'll be greeted by a fresh contemporary interior, sleek glass walls and a sea of wooden furniture, making it an irresistible location for some much-needed cocoon comfort. The POD Hotel knows how to do modern simplicity, beautifully.

The rooms? 

The hotel offers 17 rooms which provide a balance between comfort and luxury. The Deluxe suits offer a private balcony with breath-taking views of Camps Bay beach, while the Luxury rooms are equipped with their own sun bathing patios and heated plunge pools. The Mountain rooms offer spectacular mountain views while the Classic and the Mini Mountain rooms cater to the single or budget-conscious traveller.

My highlights of the apartment were…

The white lacquered bathtub and rain shower! If beautiful spaces are right up your street, you're about to experience some serious bathroom envy. With the use of natural materials the bathroom creates a warm, luxurious and contemporary space. Your cares and stresses will wash away as you begin to unwind in the large tub (that can easily fit two).

Need to know? 

Although the POD Camps Bay doesn’t have its own restaurant, it is located just five minutes from some of Cape Town's best restaurants including the The Round House, Paranga and The Hussar Grill. The hotel does however serve a seriously delicious breakfast. Try their spinach and poached eggs on rye, or their berry waffles.

With its modern interior, a 'nothing's too much trouble' attitude and with plenty of fine dining at your door step, the POD Boutique Hotel ticks every box for the perfect hotel getaway.
