One&Only Cape Town


Seamlessly blending the contemporary with the traditional, right on the V&A Waterfront.

The exclusive One&Only Cape Town is the epitome of urban resort chic. It has stunning views of Table Mountain and a contemporary interior that infuses African flair. The V&A Waterfront is within walking distance if you're keen to sample its many eateries, shops and attractions, and there's a complimentary water taxi to take you to other areas of the waterfront too.

Within the resort there's a vast outdoor pool with a spa retreat on an island within it. And the food truly sets the One&Only Cape Town apart. There's spectacular afternoon tea at Vista Bar & Lounge of buttermilk scones among exquisite French-style confectionery and a range of restaurants that includes Africa’s first by renowned Nobuyuki Matsuhisa – Nobu. An innovative blend of classic Japanese cuisine and South African seafood and spices, Nobu is one of Cape Town’s most popular restaurants. Isola is exclusive to hotel guests, and located on one of the resort's 'islands'. Add to that the sophisticated brasserie cuisine of Reuben’s and the spectacular tri-level Wine Loft, home to the largest collection of South African vintages in the world, and you have a gourmet paradise.

The resort's rooms and suites are Cape Town’s largest and 40 of them are set on an adjacent private 'island' for an extra touch of privacy. Rooms feature the latest technology to help you get the most of our your city stay. Order room service or book a table at one of the restaurants from your room using the ALICE device, and take your 'handy' smartphone when you leave your room for unlimited local and international calls and internet access on the go. Marina Rooms and the more spacious Suites are found in the Marina Rise building with harbourside or Table Mountain views. Island Superior Rooms are set on the resort-style 'island' with waterway views, while One Bedroom Island Suites offer a separate lounge.
