One and Only Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

At the One & Only Cape Town, on the Victoria and Albert Waterfront, the African influences have a decidedly urbane feel. With views of Table Mountain, the hotel sits on a man-made lagoon. Within, its sleek, modern décor gets gravitas from African fabrics, local art and wall-to-wall windows, which bring the landscape indoors. Amid the lagoon, on its own private island, a spa brings to mind the African bush with tropical gardens and treatments borrowed from regional traditions such as baobab oil and local herbs.
