One&Only Cape Town
A Destination Resort in South Africa’s Most Vibrant City
Situated at the centre of Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, overlooking the marina and with panoramic views across to Table Mountain, the 131-key One&Only Cape Town resort is a chic resort offering unrivalled dining and a private Spa Island.
A destination unto itself, One&Only Cape Town provides a comprehensive range of luxury services and also serves as a gateway to a myriad of experiences throughout the continent – from safaris to pristine beaches to the exploration of the world-renowned Cape wine region.
Built by Cape Town-based architects Dennis Fabian & Berman and Ruben Reddy the seven-storey stylish property integrates seamlessly with the Waterfront District. The resort interiors, by internationally acclaimed New York-based interior designer Adam D. Tihany, are contemporary whilst drawing on Africa’s culture and heritage. Tihany’s approach of imbuing each of his projects with a sense of the surrounding culture runs parallel to One&Only’s core philosophy of providing distinctive experiences.
Forty of the resort’s spacious rooms and suites are set on an adjacent lush green landscaped island in the marina itself, giving these rooms a distinctive resort feel and convenient access to the Spa Island. The resort’s rooms and suites, the largest in Cape Town with a minimum size of 63 square metres, all have a private terrace or balcony. The rooms at the 91-key Marina Rise have panoramic views of Table Mountain. Two suites offer their own en-suite spa treatment rooms to afford guests maximum privacy and relaxation. The resort’s main pool area, located on one of two private islands linked by bridges, feature a heated 350-square metre freeform, infinity-edge swimming pool, a private sitting area with double chaise lounges for sunbathing and shaded trellis pavilions for those seeking respite from the sun.
The resort features One&Only Spa, an oasis of serenity and privacy surrounded by water and dense vegetation. The 1,200-square metre One&Only Spa offers 12 treatment suites of which two have private wet areas for couples treatments. Two vitality pools complement the relaxation spaces, sauna and steam rooms, a hair salon and the celebrated Bastien Gonzalez pedicure and manicure studios provide additional facilities.
The 200-square metre One&Only Fitness Centre, located in the main resort building, features state-of- the-art fitness equipment from Technogym® with personalised workout programmes developed for guests and residents. A dedicated Kinesis training room offers tri-dimensional pulley system training and there are spacious studios for yoga, Pilates and tai chi.
One&Only Cape Town also has a specially-designed KidsOnly Club for younger guests of 11 and under, which offers daily complimentary supervised activities including full and half-day programmes.
For guests with business in mind, there is an extensive Ballroom measuring 260 square metres, able to host up to 200 people for cocktails and 120 guests for a sit down dinner. The space can also be divided into two separate rooms for a more intimate setting. An adjacent Marina Meeting Room seats 40 and the Business Centre Boardroom seats 12 people.
On the dining front, innovative chef Nobu Matsuhisa brings one of the most celebrated global restaurant brands featuring his signature Japanese-inspired menu, with a few South African twists, to Cape Town – the first Nobu in Africa. One&Only Cape Town is also home to Ochre, the resort's signature restaurant whose menu celebrates the Cape’s rich culinary heritage and features fresh, local produce.
A spectacular tri-level wall of glass and steel commands the entrance to Ochre's impressive Wine Loft. Here, guests can discover a magnificent collection of 5,000 bottles. Fine vintages of Cape Pinotage or Shiraz are on offer alongside undiscovered South African gems, with particular emphasis given to both acclaimed and undiscovered South African vintages.
In the mezzanine tasting room, 80 wines are available by the glass, served with suggested food pairings to create a truly new culinary experience with each tasting.
A third restaurant, Isola Pool Restaurant, located outdoors on Villa Island is available for more casual dining. Vista, the lobby bar, has a magnificent three-storey clear glass wall highlighting the scenic Table Mountain views.
