• Tintswalo Boulders is hosting another of its popular winter gourmet weekends from 28 – 30 June, led by resident head chef Dustin Hammond. The experience begins with an Oyster and Whiskey pairing, accompanied by charcuterie boards, followed by a harvest-style gourmet dinner on Friday.

    Saturday morning starts with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and pastries. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace with uninterrupted views of Boulders Beach and the famous African Penguin Colony. Chef Dustin will then guide the group on a fynbos and coastal foraging excursion. Return to Tintswalo Boulders for lunch and an interactive session where Chef Dustin shares expert tips on planning and hosting a dinner party.

    Saturday afternoon is free for relaxation – book a spa treatment, explore Simon’s Town, drive to Cape Point, or relax by the fire while watching penguins on the beaches along the boardwalk.

    The highlight of the weekend is Saturday evening, starting with canapés, followed by an Elemental Banquet paired with Catherine Marshall wines, presented by the winemaker herself. This extravagant 7-course dinner is designed around the elements – earth, air, fire, and water – with each course showcasing the unique characteristics of a selected element, creating a memorable culinary journey to delight all the senses.

    Sunday morning features a leisurely bubbly breakfast, with a late checkout at 3pm, allowing time for optional spa treatments or relaxation in the luxurious suites before the week begins.

    Weekend rates start from R10 840 for 2 people, which includes luxury accommodation for 2 nights (Friday, 28 June, and Saturday, 29 June), all meals, and selected beverages specified during culinary experiences.
