We attended way back in 2012 but I doubt any alterations have been made to accommodate the physically challenged. The staff i.e. Wardah & Wilma were excellent and Wilma admitting I was her first amputee she had ever massaged and that she found no difference...More

As a local resident, I am fortunate enough to have been to most of the top spas in Cape Town. The Spa at the Twelve Apostles rates as the worst of all. I was given a voucher for a package including lunch and while the...More

The 12 Apostles is a magnificent hotel with the very best views of the ocean. One would expect that this 5 star establishment would have a Spa to match. Sadly this is not the case in terms of facilities, treatments, and luxury service culture. Facilities:...More
