Twelve Apostles Hotel

premier Camp | Cape Town, South Africa

| Read Reviews | Write a Review

The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world. On one side, a line of majestic mountains—The Twelve Apostles—rises into the sky; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins and the crashing Atlantic. All around are the wilderness trails of Table Mountain National Park. Yet this 5-star boutique hotel is just minutes from cosmopolitan Cape Town.

Our Expert Says

This is one of my favorite places in all of Cape Town. Even if you don’t stay here, treat yourself to a drink on the deck—the view is truly the best in all of Cape Town, the only vista of ocean, sky and mountain.

The Hotel

Location: Cape Town, South Africa
Number of Rooms: 70

Between the glorious sunsets over the Atlantic and the exquisite pampering of the staff, guests are often in awe during a stay at The Twelve Apostles. Rooms overlook either the rugged mountains or the sea, and each is unique—though equally elegant. Decor incorporates an eclectic mix of contemporary African style, classic European comfort and cutting-edge technology. Light, muted earth tones and airy spaces invite relaxation and a refreshing night’s sleep. Recently named Best Spa Resort in Africa, The Twelve Apostles offers a menu of wellness treatments and indulgences to delight even the most seasoned spa aficionado—or the merely tired traveler. If ever a hotel’s location and its 5-star cuisine were in harmony, it is here. Choose fine dining with uninterrupted views of the ocean or lighter fare at the grill offering fresh small bites. In the lounge, the bartender’s superb cocktails have become a local tradition. Afterward, munch popcorn and view classic films in the intimate private theater.

Wildlife Viewing & Activities

Although not a primary wildlife viewing area, marine life abounds off the shores of the Cape. This is one of the only places in the world to see breaching great white sharks, typically best from July to October, as well as year-round African penguins, Cape fur seals and common dolphins. Cape mountain zebra, ostrich, chacma baboon, and other mammals and birds are found in Cape Point Nature Reserve and Table Mountain National Park.
