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.

Mrs M wrote a review Oct 11
Pretoria, South Africa2 contributions1 helpful vote
We were only in Cape Town for a night, and spent it at the One&Only. It was our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make our trip special. They gave us so many special treats to celebrate, from platters of macarons, fudge, nougat and bubbly, to running a bath for us with rose petals. Nobu was a treat too, and again the staff made us feel so special and gave us a lovely dessert to celebrate. From check in to departure, to organizing us a shuttle to our next destination, everything was lovely and 5 stars!

Positives - well thought out rooms with all the comforts , friendly and helpful staff , quality amenities- 5 star facilities. NOBU restaurant was a good experience. Negatives- hotel under construction room was changed from mountain view to island with only 2 day in advance notification- due to renovations certain areas closed. Pastries were stale at breakfast. Overall would give a 4.5 rating

True 5 star quality in every way. The staff were excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. We were greeted by name from our arrival to departure. Nobu Restaurant served up some truly outstanding dishes, worthy of any Michelin establishment. If we want a good time in Cape Town, we don't go anywhere else.
