Stay in the Mother City’s finest accommodation
City | Food & wine
Having undergone a full redesign of its rooms and public spaces, this iconic Cape Town hotel brings the very latest in ultra-luxury accommodation to the city’s fashionable V&A Waterfront. With inspiration taken from the culture and landscapes of its surroundings, the hotel’s reimagined interiors present the perfect balance of traditional African heritage and cutting-edge design, showcased across all 133 rooms and suites as well as its lobby and spectacular new Vista Bar & Lounge. As such, you can expect local artworks, handmade ceramics, fabrics and colour schemes reflecting everything from the nearby forests and ocean to the unique topography of the iconic Table Mountain.
Even the entry-level rooms are impressive, dressed in contemporary clean lines and featuring everything from Nespresso machines to private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows – perfect for taking in the view. Expect to enjoy panoramas of either the yacht-dotted marina or the city’s Table Mountain icon. The marbled bathrooms are a further highlight, host to rain showers and designer egg baths. There are also similar rooms found on hotel’s private marina island, while upgrades mix in the likes of suite living, penthouse settings and champagne and oysters on arrival. There are even two that come with their own butler and kitchen.
It’s perhaps the restaurants that stand out most among the One&Only’s amenities. The first and only African outpost of the world-famous Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa is the obvious highlight, where the master chef’s signature Japanese flavours are paired with the freshest Capetonian seafood. Sumptuous breakfasts and brasserie classics are then served in Reuben’s, while Isola offers pool-side bites. Think wood-fired pizzas and the day’s catch.
All rooms enjoy complimentary use of the spa thermal suites. But, for more considered relaxation there’s a full range of massages and beauty treatments, alongside aroma-steam rooms, a sauna and a series of vitality pools. Then there’s the infinity pool, fringed by majestic palms and private cabanas, while the city’s famous beaches are just a short hop away.
