Overview

The award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is situated on Cape Town’s – if not the world’s most scenic route. Flanked by the Twelve Apostles mountain range and majestic Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site which recently gained New7Wonders of Nature status, it is poised above the Atlantic Ocean and guided by a luminescent marine reserve with frequent whale and dolphin sightings. The legendary Atlantic Ocean sunsets feature the longest hours of sunshine in Cape Town, and are guaranteed to make your stay a breathtaking experience.

This luxury boutique hotel offers easy access to spectacular beaches and tourist attractions while the famous Cape Winelands is a scenic drive away. A shuttle service is offered to the V&A Waterfront and city centre, while exhilarating helicopter transfers from the hotel’s helistop present spectacular aerial views of the Peninsula.

A member of Leading Hotels of the World, The Twelve Apostles is well established as Cape Town’s leading boutique hotel, and repeatedly voted as one of the best on the continent. African Style and classic European comfort affirm the elegance of the hotel, which boasts 70 individually designed bedrooms and suites, including a Presidential Suite. Part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, The Twelve Apostles Hotel offers splendid luxury, passionate service, generous hospitality and exquisite cuisine. The property is the perfect choice for a wedding or any special occasion, and a popular venue for intimate conferences and executive board meetings too.

Twelve Apostles offers many elegant touches that are extended to guests, including a welcome drink of chilled Rooibos tea, sparkling wine, or mineral water. Children of all ages are welcome and cared for with children’s activity packs, special turn down services, child-friendly menu options, and plenty of space to run around and play. Small pets may also be accommodated in room types that offer access to the garden.

Hotel guests are spoiled for choice with a wide range of facilities and activities on offer, from relaxing next to the infinity or heated rock pool, to enjoying movie nights in the 16-seater private cinema. Enjoy mountain walks and picnics in the National Park, or surrender the senses in the tranquil Spa with its range of world-class signature treatments. The Spa is a haven of comfort, style and tranquility and designed to focus on holistic principles, combining ancient wisdom with modern technology. Gourmets will delight in the superb wine and dine experience on offer by Executive Chef Christo Pretorius and Sommelier Gregory Mutambe at Azure Restaurant and The Cafe Grill, while there is no better spot in Cape Town to mingle with locals for classic cocktails and sundowners, than the famous Leopard Bar.

With a mantra of ‘No request is too large, no detail too small’, it is no wonder that The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa was rated as the No. 1 City Hotel in Africa and the Middle East in the Travel + Leisure World's Best Service awards for 2013.
