One & Only Cape Town

One & Only Cape Town

The One&Only Cape Town is a 5-Pearl chic urban hotel resort and one of this brand’s global luxury accommodations. Nestling close to the bustling and beautiful Victoria Alfred Waterfront Marina with views of Table Mountain, the hotel offers top-notch contemporary accommodation and amenities.


The hotel has a fine location overlooking a Marina in the heart of this diverse and vibrant city facing the S. Atlantic Ocean. Part of the property stands on an artificial island along the canal with a vista of the famous flat-topped Marina Table Mountain. 

The V&A Waterfront is also a popular community area with shops and eateries. Additionally, there are arts and crafts, entertainment, kid’s play areas, events, and accommodation. Moreover, the ‘Watershed’ is a hub for many fashion and accessories brands and local artisans displaying unique ceramics, textiles, furniture, and jewelry. 

Adjacent is the Two Oceans Aquarium. Gorgeous Clifton Beach and the Cape Nature Reserve are also nearby. Furthermore, the city is well served by public transport and taxi services. Besides, the hotel has complimentary parking for private cars. Cape Town International Airport is about 12 miles from the city center.

Hospitality and Features

This property has a reputation for gracious, friendly, and efficient staff and a wide range of amenities/services expected from the One&Only brand. Guestrooms and public areas are spacious, light, and airy with contemporary styling, comfortable and plush furnishings. 

Additionally, the welcoming lobby and lounge feature a bar overlooking the water with Table Mountain dominating the skyline. African art is strongly featured throughout the hotel. An on-site boutique also stocks innovative high-end fashion pieces. Moreover, children are welcomed, and special needs facilities are provided at the hotel.


There are 133 extremely spacious guest rooms and suites divided between the 7-story Marina Rise building and a private island by the waterside. The rooms in the main building are notable for soft colors, sumptuous fabrics, and the finest bed linen. 

Satiny scatter cushions, and luxurious throws add touches of warm color. However, everything is subtle and soothing, and the scenery is dramatic enough. Most rooms have balconies with views of the harbor or mountain. 

Amenities include free breakfast, Nespresso coffee machines, mini-bar, Wi-Fi, TV, and cable/satellite. There are also iPod docking stations and 24-hour room service. Bathrooms are darkly marbled and lavish with standalone tubs, separate showers, double vanities, bathrobes, and slippers. 

Moreover, there is a Premier room choice on the upper floors with particularly pleasing views of the marina and mountain from the private balcony. A superior double room is also available on the island location overlooking the seasonally heated infinity pool.


Many of these enormous suites sit on the lush private island with a walkway connection to the main building. Featuring all the luxury amenities/services of the rooms, suites have extended living space and add-on rooms. These island suites also have privacy, great views, and the beauty of the infinity pool. 

Furthermore, there is a one-bedroom grand suite with kitchen and dining areas and a two-bedroom family suite. Bathrooms feature generous-sized soaking tubs under wide windows to mimic outdoor bathing, separate rain showers, and toilets. Some suites also include fireplaces, and all have wide terraces.

Special Suites

The finest accommodations, some of the most expansive and coveted in the city, are the Table Mountain and the Presidential suites. Featuring panoramic views of the city, waterfront, and Table Mountain, these suites have kitchen and dining facilities and lavish bathrooms. The decor is lilac-blue and earth colors. Also, the sumptuous seating areas have enough room for family and friends and more to spare.


The infinity pool is a charming lagoon-style watering place. Guests can bathe or relax on padded sunbeds under overhead shades or choose the privacy of a luxurious cabana. Drinks like champagne and snacks will be server throughout the day. The resort also offers a Pool Day Special, which includes a private family cabana all day with a revitalizing foot massage by the pool.

Additionally, a special sharing lunch menu and snacks come with cocktails, beers, soft drinks, and water. Children also have access to the kids-only pool. 


In addition to the kids-only pool, this is a very family-friendly hotel with great facilities for children. The Kids Club has plenty of attractive playing spaces with daily organized activities. It also features arts and crafts programs and games - indoors and out.

Gourmet Dining

This hotel is blessed by having Nobu as its premier restaurant. Celebrated Michelin-starred chef, Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, oversees the preparation and presentation of his inspired fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, admired the world over. 

Dining at Nobu is an experience. It begins by ordering drinks at the swish bar, then fine dining in the very chic dark décor of the restaurant. The experience ends with relaxing in the lounge upstairs, sipping sake, and late-night cocktails. Also, don't forget to ask about the famous west coast mussels.

Poolside Dining

Isola is for casual dining by the exquisite pool between bathing and lounging in the South African sunshine. Light summery menus include salads and wraps, seafood, and wood-fired flatbreads. Ices and sorbets or long cool drinks or smoothies are also available to refresh any time.

Breakfast and Afternoon Tea

Both of these are specialties of the One&Only. Breakfast is on a floating basket-style tray in the infinity pool. Colorful to the eye, delicious to taste, and unique in experience, available for all hotel guests. 

Paddle-boarding can be attempted in the pool to get up an appetite. Moreover, tea is famous and available in the attractive lobby. Additionally, mixologists conjure up cocktails in the Vista bar just off the lobby with magnificent mountain views. Furthermore, the Wine Loft has over 5000 fine wines for tasting, including South Africa’s finest. 

Spa and Fitness

This fabulous One&Only Spa has a lushly landscaped island all to itself. This exclusive spa island is surrounded by palms and lapped gently by the calm sparkling waters. Secluded and serene, the spa offers sybaritic facials using gorgeous plant-based ESPA products plus wraps, scrubs, and full-body treatments. Also, a sauna and steam rooms are there for your enjoyment. 

This sanctuary invites steam baths and dips in the vitality plunge pool and detox drinks in the lush garden. Moreover, the fitness center has state-of-the-art gym equipment and exercise programs with qualified trainers on hand to help.


Cape Town has marine life, mountains, and eco-parkland to explore besides the beaches. What's more, the One&Only resort has all else needed for visitors to the city.
