One&Only Cape Town is a deluxe, contemporary hotel situated in the trendy V&A Waterfront area of central Cape Town, South Africa. Boasting wonderful views of the surrounding marina and Table Mountain, this sleek upmarket property is perfectly located for the Waterfront’s numerous restaurants, bars, and entertainment options. Offering 131 elegant rooms and suites, several bars and restaurants, a lovely infinity pool, gym, and spa, the hotel will appeal to travellers on a higher budget seeking select accommodation and facilities in the heart of this vibrant city.

Communal areas include Reuben’s Brasserie, serving international cuisine and local specialities, and the renowned, Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant, Nobu. Isola offers tranquil, alfresco Italian dining on one of the hotel’s private islands. In-room and private dining can also be arranged. The ‘wine loft’ boasts an impressive wine list, whilst Vista Bar and Lounge in the hotel’s central lobby offers light snacks, afternoon tea and cocktails alongside superb mountain views. There is a lovely outdoor infinity pool surrounded by day beds and palm trees, and an extensive spa with thermal pools and a steam room. There is also a gym onsite, and an upmarket designer boutique.

Activities include guided walks around the city, whilst stand-up paddle board excursions offer a unique way to explore the Waterfront area. A revolving-cable car journey to the top of Table Mountain is an exhilarating ‘must-do’. Cape Town’s pristine beaches including Clifton, Boulders, Camps Bay, and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, are all within easy reach.

The accommodation comprises 91 rooms and suites in the seven-storey main hotel, and 40 rooms and suites on a leafy secluded island in the marina, surrounded by tranquil waterways. Each sleek, contemporary unit has one or two bedrooms with a king size or two queen beds, and a spacious modern bathroom with rainfall shower, and many with a separate bathtub. Suites include a walk-in wardrobe, a comfy lounge, and a dining area, and some have a separate kitchen. All units have floor to ceiling glass doors leading onto a private balcony or terrace, with views of the harbour or of Table Mountain.

At the top end of the budget spectrum, the palatial one bed Table Mountain Suite and two bed Presidential Suite each offer expansive living space with oversize bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen, private gym, office, butler service, and optional private chef, along with panoramic views from the wonderful terrace.

Children of all ages are warmly welcome and well catered for. Under 12s stay free of charge when sharing a room with their parents and interconnecting rooms are available. A dedicated kids club runs daily for 4-11 year olds, with under 3s welcome when accompanied by an adult. A separate teen programme is also available. Discounts are offered for children dining in the hotel restaurants. Cots, highchairs and feeding equipment are provided, and babysitting can be arranged on request.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
