On the site of an old Cape Dutch homestead, a hotel was controversially developed less than ten years ago. It was contentious because this stretch of Cape Town's Atlantic seaboard is part of a protected nature reserve and was quite empty of other human habitation. The first developer couldn't complete the building and subsequent owners never quite found its full potential. The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa hotel has now been reinvented as the one of Cape Town's most attractively positioned 5-Star establishments.
The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa seems to have come of age to provide one of the most pleasant venues in Cape Town for accommodation, drinking, dining and pampering. The Twelve Apostles is only 10 minutes drive from the city, yet completely surrounded by nature, with an elevated position above the only road leading along the Atlantic coast, just south of Cape Town city. This location allows access easy to Cape Town, its beaches, and the V&A Waterfront, and there is a complimentary hotel courtesy bus to run you around.
The Twelve Apostles Hotel is an incredibly scenic hotel. Stand on the open terrace and face the azure ocean with outstretched arms, look from your right hand to your left and take in that rare sight of an unbroken horizon. Now repeat the exercise facing back towards the steep rise of the 12 Apostles mountain range.
The modern entrance at the Twelve Apostles Hotel has a stylized crystal-ball water feature leading to a reception area that is a wonder of ornamental relics and contrasts. Feather-lined lampshades, shell-encrusted vanity tables and a wide-screen plasma TV all compete for your attention as the competent staff bustle efficiently.
The Twelve Apostles Hotel has little nooks and courtyards with rock pools, fynbos gardens and sun loungers around swimming pools. Overlooking the ocean are large Atlantic-view terraces for al fresco dining and nightly sunsets over the water.
The rooms at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa are decorated with understated elegance in 4 secluded and individual wings linked to the public areas via airy walkways, accentuating the sweeping views. Rooms are either mountain or sea-facing and are priced accordingly.
Business Ready Rooms are designed to help you tear yourself away from the view, with a carefully thought out range of extra features that make working a pleasure. Guests will have access to generous desk space, laptop rental, mobile telephones for hire, office supplies and stationary, personal fax / copier / scanner, secretarial support on request, internet access and special lighting. The extra space and panoramic views of the sea completes your experience.
