Location

One&Only Cape Town is in the coastal town of South Africa’s capital city. Overlooking the marina, the hotel boasts perfect views of Table Mountain and sits just 300m from the fashionable V&A Waterfront with its choice of dining and shopping. Two man-made private islands sit in the centre of the space with a huge winding pool surrounding them.

Rooms

Guests can choose from 23 rooms in the Marina Rise block or the spacious Island Suites which sit close to the pool. The fresh and simple rooms in the block offer views of either Table Mountain or the Marina from private terraces and en-suites with egg-shaped bathtubs, rain showers and marble vanities. The 32 Island rooms sit within landscaped gardens surrounded by an infinity pool and offering similarly spacious and luxurious en-suites. The Table Mountain Suite is a slice of elegance with breathtaking views of the mountain, African artwork lining the walls, a separate lounge area and a personal gym.

Communal Areas

Guests at One&Only Cape Town have three restaurants to choose from. Enjoy views of Table Mountain from floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the glamourous Vista Bar, dine on local cuisine at Ochre or indulge in Japanese dishes at the Michelin chef-run Nobu. Sip on a large selection of wines from The Wine Loft or enjoy laid-back fare at the poolside Isola restaurant. The award-winning Spa Island hosts multiple pools with luxury cabanas, treatment rooms and spaces to relax and it’s worth booking in ahead of time.

Activities

When not enjoying a spot of paddleboarding on the sparkling waterways or relaxing in cabanas by the pool, head out for a range of activities from hiking to the top of Table Mountain to visiting the Cape Winelands. Take a cruise to see South Africa’s spectacular wildlife or simply tour the city and its many art galleries, museums and bars. The Waterfront is packed with art, street food and boutiques and for pampering, Spa Island offers a private and luxurious space to disappear to.

SUMMER

Ideal weather with mainly clear skies, very little rainfall and little wind. Midday temperatures will generally reach highs of around 25°C/77°F, occasionally going over 32°C/90°F. Nights are warm but comfortable.

As with the rest of the Western Cape, the Cape Town can be best described as having a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild and wet winters. Ideally, we would recommend visiting in the Spring, Summer or Autumn when the weather is at it’s best within the area. Winter weather is cooler, wetter and often much windier; there are however still a huge number of activities possible and accommodation prices are more competitive.

AUTUMN

This can be a fantastic time of year to visit as the summer's heat subsides, the wind settles and autumn casts its brightly coloured mantle over the vineyards, generating red, burnished vistas spreading from the mountain tops to the sea. Midday temperatures of around 24°C/75°F, mornings can be a little chilly at times, so do pack a warm jumper.

WINTER

The arrival of Winter signifies cooler weather, increased rainfall with weather front often rolling in off the Atlantic Ocean, accompanied by strong winds. In between the weather fronts, the weather can be surprisingly pleasant, these days are just less frequent. This is a spectacular time to see the Western Cape in all of its glory, but just be prepared for any weather!
