One&Only Cape Town
Providing a unique blend of location and luxury, One&Only Cape Town is an urban chic resort in the heart of the city. Set within the secure and vibrant Victoria & Alfred waterfront, the property is framed by the towering natural wonder of Table Mountain, mesmerizing waterways, and the traditional harbour.

An array of spacious rooms offer the choice to wake up on an inner-city island sanctuary, or aloft the superb seven-storey 'Marina Rise', gazing upon a 'Wonder of the World', Table Mountain. Featuring private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows, rooms and suites have bathrooms with intricately carved African wood screens, egg-shaped bathtubs, rain showers, and two marble vanities.

Cuisine spans fine dining from Michelin-starred Nobu to the local flavors and heritage from Ochre. While Isola provides an al fresco Mediterranean-inspired restaurant by the pool, nestled in the heart of the resort's own private island.

Spend the day by Cape Town’s largest infinity pool, or in the spa to re-charge or beautify, while younger members of the family can partake in the KidsOnly Club with a variety of children's programs.

While staying at the resort, guest hosts ensure travelers become the ultimate curators of discovery, through an array of exclusive and tailored experiences from active adventures to mindful moments.
