It’s been five years since One&Only Cape Town opened its doors – the first urban resort in South Africa and indeed the African continent. Since then, this world-class property has continued to welcome both local and international guests with open arms, building a reputation as one of the finest five-star properties in Southern Africa. With a highly skilled and dedicated staff at its helm and a reputation for an unparalleled level of service, One&Only Cape Town is a beacon of luxury at the tip of the continent.
Since opening for business in 2009, One&Only Cape Town has shown consistent growth year-on-year, while its restaurants and Spa have garnered much praise and plenty of international recognition and awards too. Managing Director Clive Bennett has helped hone a generosity of spirit and personable service that is synonymous with the One&Only brand and with the resort’s continued focus on product innovation, anticipating guests’ needs and delivering an unsurpassed experience, there’s no doubt that the guestbook at One&Only Cape Town will continue to be filled with ample praise.
As a result, there is much to celebrate this April, the resort’s official five-year anniversary and in true One&Only style, the celebrations will be directed at the resort’s guests with specials and decadent offerings aplenty.Celebrate with us this April:Wine and Dine
