About Us

Location

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. 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 shops and restaurants of the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are only 15 minutes away via our free car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad.

Nearest of all is the elegant town 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.

Accommodation

When choosing one of our 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. A guest preference form will be sent out prior to arrival to ensure every need is anticipated and met.

The Spa

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 our fitness room, learning to dive – or finding serene peace in our 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.

If you prefer something a little quieter, our Spa is a magical 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. In our seven treatment rooms, we can pamper you with a range of treatments including many based on the indigenous fynbos flora. Or you can opt for a secluded open-air treatment in a shady gazebo.

Best of the Best

Part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, the award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is poised high above the Atlantic Ocean on Cape Town’s most scenic route. Renowned as the city’s leading boutique hotel, it provides easy access to all attractions, including a complimentary shuttle service to Camps Bay and the V&A Waterfront. Guests are spoiled with spectacular ocean or mountain views from the 70 bedrooms and suites, each exquisitely designed to provide the utmost in comfort and style. Other hotel features include a holistic spa, private cinema, the Azure fine dining restaurant, The Café Grill and The Leopard Bar.

Advisor Tip

Ask for a picnic basket; walk one of the Table Mountain trails that start at the hotel and eat alfresco, with a view of the ocean. –David Lauwers Chicago, Illinois

Sustainability

At The Twelve Apostles, we are committed to our community and to supporting local charities such as the Amy Foundation, Pack for a Purpose and ME to WE. We have also implemented over 40 water saving initiatives, from reusable ice cubes to systems to reuse rain water. All unused slippers and soap are donated to local charities and soup kitchens such as Fishers and Co. and Ferdinandos where they are then distributed to those in need.

At the heart of our sustainability efforts is the TreadRight Foundation, a non-profit that uses travel as a means to improve local communities, planetary health and global wildlife conservation efforts, and brings The Travel Corporation (TTC) family of brands together to make travel matter.

In 2019, we continued to make daily, impactful changes to the way we operate as a business, in favour of a more sustainable approach. We eliminated plastic straws, takeaway coffee cups, single-use butter trays and cocktail stirrers from all of our restaurants and bars, and in our guest rooms, we swapped plastic grooming kits for bamboo variants. We are proud of our newly implemented “Green Room”, a space for recycling and waste separation within the hotel, which has been developed in close partnership with Waste-Plan.
