One & Only Cape Town

One & Only, Cape Town, South Africa


Luxury takes centerstage at One & Only Cape Town, sitting pretty on the V&A Waterfront overlooking the marina and boasting panoramic views across the water to Table Mountain. Guests may step out the front door into the vibrancy of the city, then later return to this private enclave away from the bustle.


Intended as tranquil urban escapes, the redesigned rooms, suites, and penthouse are the largest in the city. Each space blends natural elements with upscale amenities for a sense of home – yet elevated. Private balconies offer inimitable views of Table Mountain, the marina, or both. Sprawling suites mix indoor and outdoor spaces for a luxurious residential feel, complete with homey bookshelves laden with trinkets and curiosities.

Upping the ante on sophistication, One & Only Cape Town also offers the meticulous Table Mountain Suite, with a remarkable view of the natural wonder, the Presidential Suite with a large living area, two spacious bedrooms, and uninterrupted Cape Town views, and the Lion’s Head Penthouse with four ensuite bedrooms and expansive indoor and outdoor living areas.


Foodies fall for One & Only Cape Town’s curated selection of restaurants and bars, from the buzz-worthy Japanese-Peruvian cuisine at Nobu, to decadent breakfast spreads of treats both savory and sweet at Ochre, a space inspired by South African heritage and a local design aesthetic. Mid-day beachy cocktails from laid-back, but ultra-cool Isola are delivered to guests’ sun-loungers or private, poolside cabana, decked out in designer prints. Oenophiles can’t miss the Wine Studio, with almost 700 references and wine experiences such as Sip&Savour, highlighting the Cape’s most exquisite wine farms, and a South African wine blending class.

It’s easy to spend a day dallying about the hotel, dipping into the sparkling infinity pool, or trying stand-up paddleboarding on one of the property’s private waterways. World-class beaches are just moments away. The renowned spa has its own island on the property, perfectly set apart for personalized spa journeys under the expert care of hand-picked ESPA therapists. A cutting-edge fitness center, exercise and wellness classes, and exclusive Biologique Recherche skin-care treatments round out the options for relaxing and recharging.

Families are not overlooked at One & Only Cape Town – rather, they’re quite welcomed. The kids’ club is the only of its kind in the city, catering to tiny imaginations with games, sports, crafts, and cooking activities.
