Description & Facilities


5 Stars


Family Friendly



The One & Only Cape Town is great hotel situated in the heart of the famous Victoria & Albert waterfront. Its location offers amazing, scenic views of the magnificent Table Mountain. Also, being less than 30 minutes drive away from Cape Town's international airport, means the One & Only Cape Town is perfectly located to meet all your holiday needs.

With just over 100 rooms the hotel is small enough to feel personal but big enough to have the facilities you would want. It boasts suites at the hotel which are largest of all in Cape Town. Each one has been designed using contemporary artwork, fabrics and furnishings. The rooms are designed to echo the feeling of the African Savannah. They have a vibrant African character to make your stay feel as authentic as possible.

As well as being authentic they are also modern with features such as oversized baths, roomy rain showers and a butler service that can be called on 24 hours a day.

As you would expect from a five star hotel, The One & Only hotel Cape Town offers an array of top of the range facilities and activities. You can indulge in Cape Town's most peaceful and friendly spa as you pamper yourself with a relaxing body massage. Treat yourself to a spa day and enjoy the picturesque relaxation room, sauna and steam facilities. There are also two spacious swimming pools which will leave you feeling totally refreshed and rejuvenated.

You can head down to the hotel's top fitness centre where the latest fitness equipment and qualified personal trainers are on hand for you. Or why not treat yourself to a beauty treatment such as a relaxing manicure or pedicure, at the hotel's full service salon. The One & Only also offers spa treatments and fitness for younger guests too so that even the little ones can feel completely refreshed and relaxed.

The hotel offers two exquisite 5 star restaurants as well as a magnificent wine loft with a mezzanine tasting room. Enjoy a drink or two as you gaze upon breath-taking views of Table Mountain in the vibrant lobby lounge and bar Vista. Feast on traditional South African dishes as well as international mouth-watering cuisines form around the world for that ultimate dining experience.
