Overview of The One Above Penthouse

From your roof-top wrap-around entertainment area that has two sparkling swimming pools, you will be able to sip your morning espresso to the view of Table Mountain coming alive in the sunshine and toast your good fortune in the evening as the African sun slips below the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean. Set in the heart of Cape Town’s vibrant and exclusive V&A Waterfront, the One Above penthouse truly lives up to its name. The dazzling views and unbeatable location are matched by a designer interior that includes a temperature-controlled wine loft with 280 vintages, a private fitness centre and a sauna.

A private butler and chef are on hand to ensure an unparalleled vacation experience and guests have access to all amenities at the One&Only Cape Town hotel, which includes a spa offering world-renowned Bastian Gonzalez manicures as well as Japanese-fusion restaurant Nobu Cape Town.

But it not really necessary to venture beyond the walls of this sophisticated penthouse, which are filled with beautiful art, as you will have access to a state-of-the-art kitchen, a barbeque deck and a cosy library with a fireplace – the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring magnificent Cape Town.

    General Facilities

    The One Above penthouse is a glamorous take on a seaside villa: instead of wicker, expect marble; for bleached wood, substitute glass, mirror, thick rugs and imported fabrics. A subtle palette of creams and silvers allows the sun-drenched rooms to sing against panoramas of Table Mountain, the twinkling Cape Town city centre and far-off Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was once held. Stretching over two storeys that are linked by a glass-balustraded staircase, the penthouse is very spacious with an airy feel that is immediately relaxing.

    There is a private lift to the basement parking and 24-hour, access-controlled security at all times. The first floor has a study or library with a fireplace leading from the entrance area, plus a fitness centre and a sauna.

    The One Above Penthouse offers several indoor and outdoor dining areas, with the indoor dining room being on the second floor, along with two sun-flooded living rooms. The expansive outdoor area on the first floor offers sun loungers, a barbecue area and a dining table, making it the ideal venue for alfresco meals or a sunset cocktail party. There are two swimming pools, meaning you can follow the sun on a perfect summer’s day.
