Hidden gem on the Cape Town western shores. Exclusive, luxurious, tasteful & well worth a visit. Top class dining, excellent spa, out of this world sea and mountain views in untouched surroundings. Most importantly, the service experience from booking to check out is world-class, with unsurpassed attention to detail. A real treat!

Really was a wonderful stay. Had a see facing room which was stunning, had excellent service throughout, and the bar & restaurants were great. Free shuttle to go in to town which is an added bonus. Helipad for helicopter rides which is a must and spa for relaxing - you can have them in private rooms/pods with sea views. Wish... More

Absolute luxury, a special spoil. 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa is really amazing. From the moment you walk in the door, until the moment you leave, the service is excellent. Attention to detail of the highest regard, everything is pretty much perfect. A 5-star experience!

Fourth year running that my wife and I have enjoyed the Winter Special deals at Twelve Apostles. From making our booking direct with Jason at reception it was perfect. Exceptionally warm welcome from Brian , Masood , Mondo and Patrick while our room was upgraded and prepared. The location is simply superb as always and we both thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Excellent service through out the hotel. Food and wine of the highest quality is served. The location is awesome and most relaxing. It's definitely home away from home and every effort is made to make guests feel comfortable.

We stayed at the Twelve Apostles for our final night in South Africa, after sampling several other five-star options in Cape Town (and the rest of the country). The competition in this segment is tough, no doubt (we really enjoyed all hotels we stayed at) - however, the Twelve Apostles is able to hold its own with its unique location,... More

I just landed this morning back to NYC from South Africa, we stayed at 12 Apostles when we visited Cape Town during our trip.

From the moment we walked into the hotel you felt welcomed with a glass of bubbly. The staff all around was excellent. Our weekend started with a Romantic couples massage in the mountain gazebo overlooking the Atlantic ocean as the sun sets. The spa's hot pool in "cave" like atmosphere was relaxing. We had the corner room which you can... More

Top-rate service from Mireille who was astute enough to catch on to the fact that it was my friend's gift from me and arranged/served Liz an appropriately decorated plate ("Happy Birthday"). A lovely and personal touch to an otherwise delightful outing on one of Cape Town's perfect winter days at an hotel with wrap-around views of the coastline. And the... More
