One&Only Cape Town
  • rooms

    There is a huge variety of accommodation here. All rooms and suites are stylish, spacious and beautifully decorated with rich earthy tones and unique local African artworks adorning the walls.

    The 16 Marina Rise Harbour rooms all offer lovely views of the Waterfront or Table Mountain and large private balconies, one King sized or two Queen beds and ensuite bathrooms.

    The Marina Grand Suites have luxurious dining spaces and spacious lounges, King sized beds, his and hers separate bathrooms and Table Mountain Views.

    The Premier Marina Table Mountain rooms are up on the fourth and fifth floors, ensuring spectacular views from the large private balconies and a King or two Queen option.

    The other room choices are found on the resort’s private landscaped islands. The Island Superior Rooms surround the pool and have either a King sized or two Queen beds, ensuite bathrooms and can be connected together for a family stay. The two bedroomed version offers both King and Queen sized beds, delightful walk in closets and ensuite bathrooms. They also offer lounges with cosy fireplaces and dining areas that open onto large terraces overlooking the waterways. The fully equipped kitchen is very user friendly and there is also the option of a private chef (additional charge).

    And for a really special stay then there’s the choice of the Table Mountain Suite or the Presidential Suite. The Table Mountain Suite offers a private foyer, games room, executive office, 24 hour butler and huge terrace with extraordinary views. The beautiful open plan dining area and lounge are the perfect space for entertaining too.

    The Presidential Suite is filled with every imaginable luxury. Open air terraces overlook both the Marina and Table Mountain and original works of art adorn the walls. Although it is one bedroomed (expansive though this is), it can be combined with another suite for more spacious accommodation. The dining area can comfortably seat 12 and leads out onto the huge balcony and a private foyer, entertainment room and 24 hour private Butler service completes the decadence. We think a glass of bubbles might be obligatory?

  • facilities & activities

    And while it is all about the central location, the facilities here are all you would expect from a One&Only. The stunning infinity pool is seasonally heated and sits on its own private island in the middle of the resort. It’s considered the finest in Capetown. Relax on one of the double chaise lounges and treat yourself to a refreshing juice, or a crisp wine, from the poolside bar.

    There is an award winning spa, complete with spectacular views of the ocean, a state of the art gym and numerous fitness classes. Taste new wines and learn about the winelands in the three floored, glass fronted Wine Cellar. And of course the spectacular beaches, cultural attractions, botanical gardens and host of incredibly diverse wildlife safaris are all within easy striking distance.

  • dining

    Nobu needs no introduction with its world famous, classical Japanese cuisine with a contemporary twist. Head up the striking sweeping staircase and relish fresh seafood infused with indigenous spices.

    Ochre offers a contemporary interpretation of age-old South African recipes, bringing together a kaleidoscope of heritages to create uniquely re-imagined dishes and flavours. Open to locals as well as hotel guests, diners can choose from a menu comprising 6 starters and mains and 3 desserts, interspersed with surprise tastes and treats. In addition, there are show-stopper house specialties which are designed for sharing. Under-stated, stylish local inclusions thread through all aspects of the décor and experience. The ambience and service-style is welcoming, familial and holds an unstuffy elegance. 

    During the day head to the chic poolside restaurant, Isola. Light Mediterranean and African dishes are served up amongst the waterways on the resort’s private island.

    Enjoy a sundowner or an exquisite afternoon tea with the expansive back drop of Table Mountain through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows at Vista Bar, or mingle with guests and locals alike and listen to the vibrant live music in the evenings. And all that before you sample the 5,000 different types of wine found in the dazzling glass and steel Wine Loft next door (don’t say we didn’t warn you).

  • family

    There are great room choices for a family; the Two Bedroomed Family and Premier Family Suites offer plenty of space with one master bedroom, walk in closet and a second bedroom with two queen sized beds and large ensuite bathroom. They also offer a huge dining space and lounge with lovely views of Table Mountain. However, should these not be available, there are plenty of other interconnecting configuration options amongst the Marina and Island rooms.

    Both Reuben’s Brasserie and Isola are very family friendly for in-house dining and there is a 50% discount for all children under 12 years. All kiddie paraphernalia such as high chairs, cots, sterilisers etc are complimentary, there is a special turn down service and they’ll love the backpack and colouring gifts on arrival (all age appropriate).

    The One&Only Kids Club offers a daily programme of supervised activities for children
    aged 4 – 11 with a dedicated club house complete with movie and game lounge, reading area, computer room and garden. Babysitting services are also available on request (extra charge). Teens are also well catered for with a huge selection of games such as Wii, X Box and Playstation or they’ll enjoy the excursions to City Rock to try their hand at steel track tobogganing, sandboarding, indoor karting and rock climbing. There are even cinema trips to the theatre on the waterfront.

  • location

    It’s all about location here. The hotel sits in the enviable position in the centre of the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, overlooking the famous marina and with panoramic views up to Table Mountain. Capetown’s delights are just footsteps away and the International Airport is also just a 25 minute drive away. Valet parking is available or there is an airport shuttle that runs directly from the hotel.
