On the edge of a marina at the buzzing V&A Waterfront, hugged by views of Table Mountain, One&Only Cape Town is a world-class resort that raises the bar when it comes to a stunning location, personalised experiences and top-drawer facilities.
Luxurious lodgings aside, One&Only Cape Town is host to an array of attractions, including an award-winning spa, excellent restaurants and, of course, beautiful surroundings – all of which are yours for the taking this Valentine’s Day.
Far removed from the buzz of the nearby shopping precinct, the hotel offers guests a sense of discretion and seclusion, akin to being on a remote island. There’s hardly a better place to celebrate love than at this heavenly retreat.
Host to some of the most spectacular suites in the city, each of which has a private terrace or balcony with breathtaking views of surrounding waterways and greenery, the hotel is, not surprisingly, a bucket-list must-do for discerning travellers (and celebrities, too).

There’s also a Shimmering Valentine’s Tea – a special gemstone-themed variation on the iconic high tea – accompanied by a wide selection of luxury full-leaf teas (perfect for family, friends or significant others). Expect a bejeweling assortment of brightly coloured pastries such as the diamond cupcake, sapphire cheesecake and emerald mousse, served alongside scrumptious savoury bites on picturesque tea stands, complemented by the tranquil waterside surrounds.
Another luxurious feather in the hotel’s cap is its Bali-esque spa, which (together with a small selection of suites) is situated on its own island on the resort, surrounded by palm-treed gardens and waterways, providing guests with the feeling of being far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life.
It’s here where partners will be treated to side-by-side treatments in the luxury Spa Suites, complete with access to his-and-hers Thermal Suites, a vitality pool, steam room, ice fountain, and luxurious “experience” showers. The spa also features several serene spaces such as a Relaxation Room and Spa Garden for guests to relax in.
