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 breaching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain national park. We'll even pack you a picnic. And yet this luxury 5-star boutique hotel is just a few minutes from worldly, cosmopolitan Cape Town. City-centre, theatres, and art galleries, plus the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront shops and restaurants, are only 15 minutes away via the free car transfer service, quicker still if you use the helipad.
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. The light, airy, and peaceful rooms are an eclectic mix of contemporary African style, classic European comfort, and effortless, up-to-the-minute technology. Cool colors and rich fabrics bring elegance and wilderness serenity.
Twelve Apostles is the luxurious get-away-from-it-all location that was recently named Leading Spa Resort in Africa. Here, you can be as active as you like – hiking through the mountain trails, working out in the fitness room, learning to dive – or finding serene peace in the Sanctuary Spa. There's not much you can't do at The Twelve Apostles to increase your fitness, raise your spirits, or soothe away your stress. There's a heated infinity pool overlooking the ocean for those who like the outdoor life and a smaller secluded rock pool with mountain views. You can jog through park trails, settle into one of the many idyllic garden hammocks, swim or relax on nearby golden beaches, play golf, go fishing, or explore ancient shipwrecks.
If you prefer something a little quieter, the Sanctuary Spa is a magical (grotto) oasis of tranquility cut into the surrounding rocks. Inside you'll find hot and cold plunge pools, Cape Town's only Rasul chamber, a sauna, and a hydrotherapy bath. They can pamper you with many treatments in the seven treatment rooms, including many based on the indigenous fynbos flora. Or you can opt for a secluded open-air treatment in a shady gazebo.
The nearest of all is the elegant town of Camps Bay with its beautiful golden beaches. If you prefer adventure to sun-soaked relaxation, the hotel 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.
