Tintswalo at Waterfall is certainly for a discerning holidaymaker, given the stamp of luxury that goes with everything on offer here – from the God-given spectacular views of the distant Magaliesberg mountains to opulent rooms. There are 16 rooms in total, a small number which bears testimony to the hotel’s exclusivity.
The Five Star lodge is located on 200 hectare estate overlooking a magnificent polo field. All around it’s a kind of serenity which is not commonly found in a busy city. The sound of croaking frogs, chirping birds and wide open spaces give the impression of a country setting.
Tintswalo at Waterfall is strategically positioned, as it is close to Montecasino, Sandton’s Nelson Mandela Square, Woodmead’s shopping experience and just 35km away from
