The opulent One&Only Cape Town is a unique sanctuary by the city’s waterside with sweeping views of the iconic Table Mountain, showcased by floor-to-ceiling windows, and an award-winning spa. This contemporary urban resort opened in 2008 and bursts with the wow factor – it’s easy to see why this is a five-star retreat.

Set in the heart of Cape Town, the hotel is idyllically located a walkable .2 miles from the popular Victoria and Albert Waterfront and 5.4 miles from the mighty Table Mountain and its surrounding nature reserve. If you walk anyway, only do so during the day. The hotel is 3.4 miles away is the Old Biscuit Mill (a trendy and unique eating meets shopping hub) and can be reached in a 15-minute drive or taxi ride. The Table Mountain cable car station is just 4 miles away, great for adventurous days. Just a ten-minute drive of 8.5 miles will bring you to the enchanting Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and a 55-minute drive of 30.5 miles will take you to iconic Boulders Beach – famous for its wild penguin residents. Venture further along the Cape Town peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope, the hour and a half drive (44.7 miles) is worth it. The journey from the hotel to Cape Town International Airport is 12.2 miles and takes approximately 25 minutes by car.

The One&Only Cape Town offers eight room types, ranging from 207 m2 to 594 m2, across its eight floors. Nearly all rooms feature sweeping views of Table Mountain, as well as a private balcony, a Nespresso machine®, iPod docking stations, bathrobes and plush linens. The suites offer an even more personalised and special experience, including personal training, wine selected by the sommelier on arrival, as well as canapes and sparkling wine at sunset. Choose an Island room for a more exclusive feel, close to the spa and pool area.

You’ll feel at home from the time you check in with a warm welcome from the friendly staff. The hotel’s award-winning Spa Island offers a selection of vitality pools, sauna, aroma-steam room, ice fountain, 12 treatment rooms, lavish bathrobes and hair-straighteners – nothing has been overlooked. There is also a yoga pavilion, which can be used for meditation, a free-form infinity pool and double chaise lounges for sunbathing. If you’re an early bird, join the morning stand-up paddle boarding along the Canal, or book an excursion with the hotel. There’s also a great kids’ programme and activities for teens. From cooking classes and baking classes to surf lessons, swimming lessons, junior yoga and t-shirt painting – your little ones will be kept happily busy.

The resort is home to three restaurants – including the iconic sushi restaurant Nobu, where talented chef Nobuyuki’s menu infuses South African spices with creative Japanese dishes and try the delicious spinach salad. Or take a seat at the new restaurant Ochre – opened 10th October 2019 – showcasing South African cuisine in a celebration of local flavours and seasonal ingredients, try Springbok Loin with Kalahari Truffle and Rooibos poached pears. At dusk, relax at the Vista Bar and ask the barman to create a special cocktail, using one of the local craft gins. Soak up the panoramic views of Table Mountain, then move on to the Wine Loft; it’s home to over 5000 of the finest bottles.
