— 10 September 2019

The award-winning One&Only Resorts offer some of the most luxurious accommodation experiences in the most exotic locations across the globe, but they may have just outdone themselves with their latest addition to their Cape Town retreat.

‘The One Above’ is a magnificent two-story penthouse apartment atop the One&Only Cape Town in the heart of the vibrant South African metropolis. The abode offers unrivalled views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, Devils Peak, Lions Head and the Cape Town Harbour. 

The predominately open-plan layout features floor-to-ceiling glass windows and consists of four massive bedrooms with ensuites, three lounges, a library, a study with a fireplace, a formal dining area, a fully functional gym and sauna as well as two separate outdoor areas, each with their own pool and BBQ facilities. 

‘The One Above’ can accommodate eight guests, with each of the four bedrooms featuring spectacular views of Table Mountain. The master bedroom is the definition of grandiose and sports its own private terrace, huge walk-in wardrobe, dual marble vanities, separate showers, jacuzzi, fireplace and high-end fabrics and finishes to complement the stylish layout.

The interior takes advantage of neutral colours to create a feeling of space and has an elegant contemporary look, designed to make guests feel right at home. Decorated with an impressive art collection, other neat touches throughout the penthouse include a black grand piano, temperature-controlled 280-bottle glass wine cellar, a professional coffee machine and an opulent grand marble staircase with glass balustrade connecting the two floors. 

Along with a sojourn in urban paradise, guests will have access to all the amenities of the resort as well as a variety of special extras. Both a butler service and a guest host are on call 24/7, spa treatments are complimentary and curated trips can be custom created by the personal concierge for you to experience everything Cape Town has to offer.
