One&Only Cape Town


On the Waterfront and with great views of Table Mountain, this five-star luxury hotel is constructed on two man-made islands.

Each room and suite, decorated using African colours and artefacts, has a balcony or private terrace from which to enjoy the sun and the views, while the three penthouses make great second homes for emperors and oligarchs. This is a resort in the middle of a city with everything a metropolitan visitor would need, but at the same time providing the amenities and activities a holidaymaker demands. Not only are there three superb restaurants, but the most comprehensive spa in Cape Town, a fitness centre which offers everything from kinesis training to yoga & pilates, and a KidsOnly Programme for toddlers through to teens – and all of the city’s splendour on your doorstep. To enhance their guests’ stays in Cape Town the hotel has created a series of unique experiences including wine tasting with their Head Sommelier, a masterclass with the Head Chef of their Nobu Restaurant and a guided walk to the top of Table Mountain. 


Our Thoughts

Ignore the hotel’s claim to being a resort within a city, and just enjoy some of Cape Town’s best facilities. The swimming pool is the city’s largest, the gym its finest, the guest rooms amongst its biggest, and the spa its best. A world class hotel, with a penthouse enjoyed by proper A-listers.
