One&Only Cape Town provides a comprehensive range of luxury services and accommodation, and serves as a gateway to the myriad of experiences in the city and on the continent – from safaris to pristine beaches to the exploration of the world-renowned Cape wine region. The resort’s feel is contemporary whilst drawing on Africa’s culture and heritage. The rooms and suites, the largest in Cape Town with a minimum size of 63 square metres, all have a private terrace or balcony. The rooms in the Marina Rise have panoramic views of Table Mountain, and the rooms on the resort’s adjoining island have a distinctive resort feel and convenient access to the infinity pool and separate Spa Island. The resort’s main pool area, located on one of two private islands, features a 350 sqm freeform, infinity-edge swimming pool, a private sitting area with double chaise lounges for sunbathing, and shaded trellis pavilions for those seeking respite from the sun. The exclusive Spa Island features the most comprehensive and expansive spa in Cape Town. An oasis of serenity and privacy surrounded by water and dense vegetation, the 1,000m2 One&Only Spa offers 12 treatment suites of which two have private wet areas for couples treatments. Two vitality pools complement the relaxation spaces, sauna and steam rooms, and a relaxation lounge offers snacks and beverages. The 200 sqm One&Only Fitness Centre, located in the main resort building, features state-of-the-art fitness equipment from Technogym® with personalised workout programmes developed for guests and residents. A dedicated Kinesis training room offers tri-dimensional pulley system training and there are spacious studios for Yoga and Pilates. Qualified Personal Trainers may be booked by guests for assessments and individual training sessions. One&Only Cape Town also has a specially-designed KidsOnly Club for younger guests from 4 years and older. This offers both indoor and outdoor games and activities, as well as full and half day programmes. These are all supervised, and ensure younger guests are educated, safe and happy. For guests with a large function in mind, there is an extensive Ballroom measuring 216m2 - able to host up to 250 people for cocktails and 120 guests for a sit-down meal. The space can also be divided into two separate rooms for a smaller setting. For meetings, the adjacent Meeting Room seats 40 and the Business Centre Boardroom seats 12 people. On the dining front, the resort boasts a selection of dining options and locations for in-house guests as well as visitors. The signature restaurants on the resort are Nobu. These are in the main resort building, and are on either side of the lounge, bar and deck known as Vista. A treat for wine lovers is the impressive tri-level Wine Loft with a mezzanine tasting room. On the resort’s own island is another venue called Isola. Between these, our banqueting department which services group events and celebrations and our in-room dining that services guests 24 hours a day, every culinary wish can be fulfilled. One&Only Cape Town displays the hallmarks of excellence found in all One&Only resorts around the world. It offers an unparalleled commitment to the finest experiences, attention to detail, luxurious accommodation, a wealth of activities and programmes, and state-of-the-art facilities.

We received the warmest welcome upon arrival. The staff was friendly, generous and warm. I would like to single out the following people for making our stay magical. Deverencia, Lord Elton, Masonwabe, Prince, Aubrey, Sakhele, Siviwe, Luvo, Phumla and Thabisa. Thanks to Housekeeping for keeping our room warm and romantic for my husband and I. The staff at NOBU was exceptional, from the awesome intro done by Ray to the divine cocktails made with so much passion by Mishack. Last but not least thank you to Ashley for his hospitality and generosity. He made sure our stay was of world-class experience. Keep up the good work!!

We stayed at the One and Only after a three week South Africa trip and were pretty tired. They graciously upgraded us when we arrived, and our room was the size of an apartment...full kitchen, full dining, full living room. It was beautiful and had everything you need. Even though the property is so beautiful, what made it an exceptional stay was the staff. They are so warm and personable and happy to make any request happen. They were the true 5 star experience at the One and Only.

The high level of standards is constantly high, so with each visit, our expectations are either met, or surpassed. It is hard to beat the tranquil setting of the One & Only. Whether having breakfast next to the canal, watching the tour boats cruising in and out, or enjoying great food on the balcony courtesy of room service, the sense of relaxation is magnificent. So the question is, how soon is our next visit ?!

The entire experience was very relaxed and memorable. My lady enjoyed herself and so did I. It definitely left like we were not in Cape Town for that weekend. I recommend it to anyone want to get away for the weekend but also don’t want to be far out. Very nice!

Romantic Valentine’s Day stay. We had originally booked in 2020 but due COVID, had to re-arrange to 2021. Gorgeous suite and service at the hotel. The staff were first class and it is because of them, it made our stay extra wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble at the One & Only. Bedrooms and the hotel were spotless. We can’t wait to visit again!
