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 restaurant on the resort is Nobu. This is in the main resort building, and on the side of the lounge, bar and deck known as Vista Bar & Lounge. A treat for wine lovers is the impressive Wine Studio with almost 700 references, offering one of the most balanced and diverse wine collections. 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.

My travel agent recommended I stay at One & Only Cape Town. I am so glad they did! The location was a quick walk to the waterfront where there are restaurants, shops and a mall. The view from my room and the lobby of Table Mountain was breathtaking! Just be aware, and this is true of all of Cape Town, of load shedding, otherwise known as rolling black outs. Their grid gets over loaded on a daily basis. But luckily One & Only has a generator so the lights turn off for only a few seconds.

Everything about One & Only is incredible, the team, the views, the bars and restaurants and the pool were all amazing. The team honestly couldn’t do enough for you. If you’re thinking about visiting Cape Town, you have to stay at One & Only!

Just as the name says! It was a fabulous 4 day stay. Staff was kind, courteous, helpful, and went above to accommodate you. Breakfast was included and contained most everything you would need to start your day. Try the shakshuka! Appointments were spectacular along with the setting. Must stay

Wonderful stay here - Excellent Room - 0utstanding Linen - Dreamy Pillows! Amenities and design fabulous. OUTSTANDING performers : Melissa reception - she is in another league of elegance and professional. Lenuabo - thank you thank you for your warm welcome. Mary at the spa - was fantastic - Although must comment that one of the last treatments I had at the spa - therapist was 30 minutes late - neither an apology or explanation but a negative mood which was not pleasant, wish I had cancelled. Housekeeping Brilliant - thank you

Dear Ayangara, What an amazing review , I have no idea where to start ! Thank you for your heart-warming and spectacular comments regarding your stay. We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful experience at One&Only Cape Town. We are , however, disappointed to hear about the therapist's time management. That is in no way the quality of service that we are known for and for that mishap, we sincerely apologise. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.  Best, Anne Scott General Manager

What a magnificent hotel to spend a few days in - I felt like I was in another country. Staff warmth was exceptional and the attention to detail that this hotel gives to everything, makes one feel like royalty. We stayed in a suite on the island over my birthday and staff went out of their way to make it a memorable experience for me and my family. I highly recommend this experience.

We visited One & Only for cocktails in their lobby bar. Elton who I believe was the head bartender was very knowledgable and passionate about his craft, making us a cocktail each based on our favourite spirit. He was full of energy, enthusiasm and personality which made for an enjoyable moment. If staying at the One & Only or in the vicinity, be sure to pay a visit to the lobby bar for great cocktails!

I was really disappointed with the overall value of my stay, especially given the mishaps I experienced, no transport, delay in receiving hangers. It's not what I would expect from a top tier luxury hotel.
