One and Only Luxury Hotel, Cape Town

We're excited to introduce the One&Only luxury hotel group's latest addition: One&Only Cape Town, Opening April 3rd, 2009.

‘An urban chic waterfront resort with captivating views of Table Mountain and private spa island'

Situated in the heart of Cape Town’s picturesque Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, this contemporary urban resort embodies a chic island design and African flair. The crescent-shaped architecture of the seven-storey Marina Rise allows for splendid views of Table Mountain and Signal Hill from 91 spacious rooms and suites. Two lushly landscaped islands at the centre of the waterfront feature 40 Island Suites and the tranquil One&Only Spa.

Clean lines, dark African woods and contemporary artwork by local artisans accentuate the stylish, spacious accommodation – the largest in all of Cape Town. Each of the 91 rooms and suites within Marina Rise features expansive glass doors that lead onto private balconies which capture the drama of the magnificent mountain views.

All rooms and suites are indulged by the discreet yet attentive services of a dedicated butler, 24-hours a day. The Presidential Suite looks spectacular:

The 1,200-square-meter One&Only Spa houses 11 Treatment Rooms and Two Vitality Pools, Sauna, Steam, Relaxation Areas, Full-service Salon, and Bastian Gonzales Mani:Pedi:Cure Studio. It also houses The City’s Most Comprehensive Spa Fitness Centre with State-of-the-art Equipment from Technogym® and Kinesis® Training Room, Free-formInfinity Edge Pool and a KidsOnly Club.

Dining is headlined by two world-renowned chefs: Gordon Ramsay for Maze and legendary Nobuyuki Matsuhisa for Nobu. The spectacular tri-level Wine Loft houses more than 5,000 bottles including popular and undiscovered South African vintages – the most magnificent collection of wines in the country.

Grand Opening Special: Stay for a minimum of 3 nights and up to 2 children stay for free! Enjoy 2 complimentary spa treatments and a bottle of Cape Estate Wine.

I'm looking forward to visiting One&Only Cape Town myself as soon as possible. In fact Geoff Calmeyer from Roar Africa will be making the first visit in the first week of opening. We'll report back.
