Location: Cape Town
Add to My Itinerary
The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world. On one side, a line of majestic mountains – The Twelve Apostles – reaches towards the heavens; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. The award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection is situated on Cape Town’s most scenic route. Poised above the Atlantic Ocean, the 5-star boutique hotel is flanked by the majestic Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site, and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. Victoria Road, Camps Bay, Cape Town
When choosing one of the 55 deluxe guest rooms and 15 luxurious suites, the hardest part is deciding whether to overlook the mountains or the sea. Whichever direction you face, the views are stunning. Interior decor is just as appealing. Our light, airy, and peaceful rooms are an eclectic mix of contemporary African style, classic European comfort and effortless, up-to-the-minute technology. Cool colours and rich fabrics bring elegance and wilderness serenity. At The Twelve Apostles, you want for nothing: every room includes 24-hour room service, individual air conditioning, entertainment centres with DVD, and plush bathrobes and slippers. Classic Room A Classic Room is the light and airy retreat that puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. There's a simple yet unforgettable elegance to a Classic Room.

Mountain Facing Room Prepare to be awestruck. A Mountain-Facing Room gives you a private balcony view of the towering Twelve Apostles mountain range. Full-height sliding windows let you choose between an interior of fine fabrics, tasteful furnishings, and a sparkling en-suite bathroom or views across the distant fynbos. This is untamed nature and 21st-century luxury in simple harmony. Luxury Room With more floor space and partial views of mountain and sea, a Luxury Room gives you space to breathe and time to relax. There's a choice of decor in sophisticated styles – safari, stamp, shell and natural – that encapsulate the Cape's enduring tradition of hospitality. Ground-floor rooms have a private patio; upper-floor rooms come with a private balcony; all have superb en-suite facilities. Superior Sea Facing Room "Maximising the experience of the heavenly marriage between sea and sky…." Why visit the Cape if you can't observe the sea? These split-level, open-plan rooms appear to sweep straight down to the Atlantic. Three steps separate your bedroom and en-suite bathroom from the lower-level lounge and its accompanying balcony or patio. Take dinner from this private vantage point and see the sun set over the crashing rollers. Garden Suite If you love seclusion, you'll love our Garden Room with its private garden, flower-filled patio, and open-air jacuzzi. Indoors you'll find a gloriously airy lounge with separate bedroom, bathroom, and toilet. The easygoing decor and furnishings add to the sense of stillness and relaxed intimacy. This is how life should be: luxurious, unhurried, and filled with birdsong. One Bedroom Mountain Facing Suite a One-Bedroom Suite gives you the best of both worlds. Outside, there's an uninterrupted view of the Cape wilderness; inside, a taste of spacious modern luxury with separate lounge and bedroom, a large bathroom and separate toilet.

A wood panelled study or dressing room and second bathroom add to the luxury of the suite. The private and tranquil wraparound terrace offers a perfect setting for cocktails or a private dinner. The suite encompasses a free standing antique marble bath, cool white marble floors throughout with under floor heating. Chandeliers are imported from Italy and walls are adorned with antique mirrors and a fabulous collection of South African Masters works of art.

And yet this luxury 5-star boutique hotel is just a few minutes from worldly, cosmopolitan Cape Town. City-centre theaters and art galleries, plus the shops and restaurants of the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are only 15 minutes away via our complimentary car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad. Nearest of all is the elegant area of Camps Bay with its beautiful golden beaches. Or, if you prefer adventure to sun-soaked relaxation, we can arrange sea fishing, shark and scuba diving, or whale watching trips. Further afield are the Cape Winelands (private tours by arrangement), notably the town of Hermanus where you can visit one of SA’s leading boutique vineyards, Bouchard Finlayson, see whales from the shore and, beyond that, the ancient tip of Africa where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet.
