As South Africa reopens borders for GCC travellers, One&Only Cape Town offers curated experiences with unprecedented access to the city
Consistently voted as one of the best travel destinations in the world, Cape Town is an engaging and vibrant city, for every type of traveller. Whether a city break, an adventure, a romantic getaway or a family vacation, Cape Town has an abundance to offer throughout the year.
One&Only Cape Town prides itself on personalised service, and ensuring their guests see and experience only the best of what is important to them - opening doors to places, people and memories not always accessible to, or known by, other visitors to the city. Through One&Only, travellers will go beyond that which is visible to all, they will get a real sense of Cape Town and its residents and will quickly understand why it holds the hearts of so many. The resort has conceptualised and curated a number of experiences available exclusively to guests.
TASTE OF SOUTH AFRICA
Cape Town is considered one of the best wine-producing regions in the world. For those wanting to enjoy and explore the wines on offer, One&Only Cape Town's Head Sommelier, Luvo Ntezo will host guests to an enticing introduction. Experiences include a tour of the reimagined Wine Studio, grape blending and a visit to Cape Winelands – a vast, lush green area in which many of the world’s top grapes are produced.
One&Only Cape Town is home to the only Nobu Restaurant in Africa – part of the renowned group headed by World-class master chef Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa. Nobu Cape Town offers an exciting Masterclass where guests can learn how to prepare Nobu’s signature dishes and enjoy sensational Sake pairings.
AT ONE WITH NATURE
Guests at One&Only Cape Town can practice yoga atop one of the most iconic landmarks, the ancient and majestic Table Mountain. The experience begins with a luxury transfer from the resort to the Table Mountain cableway, where guests will be comfortably lifted to the summit by cable car. Once at the top, the resort’s experienced and qualified yoga instructor will guide guests through a one-hour yoga practice, with sprawling views of Cape Town beneath and the richest floral kingdom on earth all around. This is the perfect excursion to restore balance and harmony, while enjoying the magnificent sites of South Africa’s Mother City.
Discover the mesmerising and private V&A Waterfront waterways by Water Bike or SUP (stand-up paddle board), with historic landmarks and breath-taking views of Table Mountain along the way. Both activities provide an exhilarating and unique experience, suited for people of all athletic abilities. Guides are available to coach and assist, and ensure guests feel at ease throughout the experience.
Conquer one of two iconic Cape Town mountain peaks, Table Mountain or Lion’s Head - both are conveniently situated near the city centre.
One&Only Cape Town’s energetic and highly qualified KidsOnly team will whisk away the kids for an action-packed morning of fun and games at the V&A Waterfront. The adventure begins with a cupcake making class with the resort’s exceptional pastry team. After fuelling up on some delicious baked goods, it’s a short walk to the Scratch Patch Mineral World where kids can channel their inner prospector, "scratching" for their favourite tumble-polished gemstones from a selection of thousands - including some Southern African favourites such as Tiger’s Eye, Rose Quartz and Amethyst. Next is a ride on the famous Cape Wheel, and a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium for some marine life fun and ocean exploration – complete with touch pool, predator and penguin exhibits.
