The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, Cape Town

With a dramatic seaside location, impeccable service and a world-class restaurant it’s no wonder that this magnificent boutique oasis is repeatedly voted one of Cape Town’s best hotels.


A member of Leading Hotels of the World, and part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, the ‘12A’ lies between the majestic Twelve Apostles mountain range in the Table Mountain National Park and the Atlantic Ocean. As the only building on the coastal road between Camps Bay and Llundudno beach, the location is outstanding, especially at sunset. Despite its wonderful isolation, the V&A Waterfront is a 20 minutes drive, with a complimentary all-day shuttle to take you there, and to Camps Bay.


Guests are accommodated in 55 spacious, individually decorated rooms, 15 luxurious suites and a Presidential Suite. The interiors combine sophistication with simplicity, comfort and elegance to create a tranquil atmosphere.

Facilities include two smallish swimming pools, an extensive award-winning spa offering treatment in an outdoor gazebo and a 16-seat cinema. Services include in-the-know concierges and a sports buddy programme with staff on standby to play a round of golf or a game of squash, attend a yoga class or take a hike with guests.


Susie suggests:

  • To arrive at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront in style, take the eight minute helicopter flight from the hotel’s helipad. You can always come back on the shuttle.
  • In winter, this hotel is unbelievable value for money.
