LIFESTYLE: Travel: On the edge of the world

Some people say that you don’t need a holiday … you need Cape Town. And we tend to agree, especially if you can have that holiday at the world-famous Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa

Imagine this … Just a few minutes from Cape Town, on a picturesque drive along the winding Victoria Road on the way to Hout Bay … poised at the edge of the world. On one side tower majestic mountains; to the other side there’s a never-ending view of the ocean … and in the middle of it all a picture-perfect five-star boutique hotel.

And to make this perfect image just a little more irresistible you are surrounded by the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park which forms part of the Unesco Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site.

From the moment you arrive at the Twelve Apostles Hotel you step into another world where nothing seems impossible. It’s like having all the comforts of your own home, just more luxurious. The hotel is perfect for family holidays, romantic getaways, or business conferences. They cater for everyone’s individual needs.

From the award-winning spa with a team of qualified therapists to the 16-seater private cinema, you will have an unforgettable experience.

There is a complimentary shuttle service between the hotel and the V&A Waterfront if you’d like to spend a few days without driving, or you may opt for transfer by helicopter. And to work off the amazing food you will find so irresistible, you can take a mountain walk or work out in the fitness centre. Take a dip in any of the two pools – one mountain facing and the other facing the Atlantic Ocean. Or you can relax in your room with spectacular sea views.


The cinema is available for private hire. Every month there is a new schedule of movies running five times a day … accompanied by breakfast, lunch or dinner if you wish. They have a unique “dinner and a movie” package which allows movie-lovers to enjoy an evening of wining and dining at the award-winning Azure Restaurant with a specially created movie menu followed by a screening in the cinema. If you’d like to choose your own movie, there’s a selection of classics, comedy, adventure, drama and foreign films. The plush red leather seats are the ultimate in luxury and you’ll love the lavish assortment of goodies such as popcorn, ice cream, hot chocolate, milkshake and candy that’s on offer.

Azure Restaurant

Food prepared by executive chef Christo Pretorius will add to an unforgettable experience. At the Azure Restaurant you can savour the finest indigenous and international cuisine. Choose between the set menu or opt for à la carte: from entrées to desserts, your taste buds will be in for a treat

Rest assured

The rooms are decorated to ensure ultimate comfort and hospitality. Each room has been individually designed and from your private patio or balcony you can fully appreciate the surrounding mountains and ocean.
