One&Only Spa was designated the best hotel-spa in Africa and Middle East within the 2013 World’s Best Awards, an annual survey which reached the 18th edition, conducted by the Travel+Leisure magazine. Located on its own island in the first five star urban resort of South Africa, One&Only Spa occupies 1.000 square meters and stands out due to the attention to personalized service, impeccable equipment, generous offer of luxurious beauty treatments, and because of the exclusivist spa that is worth the reputation.
“We’ve been open for four years now and it’s wonderful to be rewarded for taking our jobs as seriously as we do”, says Spa Manager Rosy Read Larsen, who together with her team of Spa professionals, has obtained a steady stream of international awards since the spa’s inauguration.

It features 131 rooms and luxury suites, provides views over Table Mountain and includes two specially arranged islands, being frequented by tourists who love returning here, first of all, because of the relaxation offered by the spa.
The design of the 12 rooms, dedicated to certain body treatments, is a mix of modern lines and African traditions.
