One&Only Cape Town
Cape Town

The perfectly located One&Only Cape Town is a large harbourside resort with exemplary One&Only hospitality, designer décor and a huge array of facilities including Cape Town’s largest spa. It’s in the heart of the V&A Waterfront but has its own private harbour so is much quieter and more relaxed. It also has Marina Island which has a decidedly Dubai-esque feel about it which is where many of the suites can be found – good for longer staying clients.

Grounds are immaculate and spacious, situated right in the heart of Cape Town’s thriving V&A Waterfront crowned by Table Mountain, yet so sprawling that it offers a real sanctuary to guests. There are 91 guest rooms and suites with sweeping harbour views and a further 40 Island rooms and suites in a secluded island setting. Facilities include a large fitness centre, a 350-metre free-form infinity pool, and a 1,200 square-metre One&Only Spa set on its own private island. The Kids Only Kids’ Club offers a fantastically wide range of supervised activities for children so adults can head off and enjoy their day whilst in confidence that their loved ones are in safe hands.

The One&Only has a welcoming lobby with 30-foot glass panes that maximise the views of Table Mountain. Guests can be seen in enjoying the 360 degrees bar throughout the day discussing the delights of exploring the Mother City. The staff here are also one of a kind, extremely kind and will go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one.

It is a great choice for foodies and wine-lovers, home to two acclaimed restaurants: the continent’s only Nobu by legendary Michelin-starred Nobuyuki Matsuhisa; and Ochre which is inspired by the rich flavours of traditional Cape Malay cuisine. Head chef Chris Mare plates up modern interpretations of local favourites such as Bobotie and West Coast Mussels. For locals dining at Ochre this invokes a feeling of ‘tuisgemaakde’, nostalgia, and for guests, this is an education of South Africa through food. There is also the Wine Loft which houses over 5,000 bottles of South Africa’s finest wines and with sommeliers on hand to advise, it would be a shame not to sample a few.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
