Leaving the bustle of glitzy Camps Bay behind, head out on the gently winding coastal road that has the majesty of the Twelve Apostles mountain range to your left and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean to your right. Before reaching the seaside enclaves of Llandudno and Hout Bay, turn off the road near Oudekraal to the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa, which is surrounded by hectares of indigenous fynbos and soaring mountain peaks.

Originally a private home built in 1929 with the classic white Cape Dutch gables that marks the traditional architecture of the Western Cape, The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa has been extended to offer guests a variety of rooms with sea or mountain rooms, a spa, plenty of dining options – the Leopard Lounge & Bar is a favourite with locals – and even a private 16-seater cinema. It offers the best of both worlds: a short drive to the Blue Flag beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton as well as Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront and the cosmopolitan Cape Town city centre but also the joy of being surrounded by nothing but nature.

One of the highlights for guests is no doubt the nature trails and picnic spots that lie behind the hotel and the exclusive-use gazebos that are perfect for sunset massages.Ideal for honeymooners and discerning couples, The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is also a popular venue for weddings and celebrations because of its incredible views and stately décor.

The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is well equipped for guests who like the option of dining and relaxing on a hotel’s premises.The all-white spa has seven treatment rooms (including dual therapy rooms), a flotation tank, rain showers, hydrotherapy pools and a health bar to complete the physical cleanse. To truly unwind, head to one of two private glass gazebos located on the slopes of the Twelve Apostles mountain range for a massage amid the tranquillity of nature, with views of the ocean and sunset.

The Rasul Chamber offers guests a traditional Arabic cleansing ritual that is a combination of mud and warm steam.The 16-seater cinema has Dolby sound and on-tap movie goodies like popcorn and milkshakes. Take in one of the scheduled shows along with a meal or select one of your favourites from the film library – perfect for a rainy day or when you need to simply sit back and relax.One of the most unique aspects of the hotel is that, because it lies on former farmland and was once the site of a 19th century hunting lodge, it is surrounded by hectares of pristine fynbos, the indigenous heather that forms part of the magnificent Cape floral kingdom. Within the fynbos garden are 10 hammocks that beg for you to lie down and catch up on your holiday reading or cat-napping.

There is also a rock pool with mountain views as well as a heated infinity pool along the front façade of the hotel (keep an eye out for passing pods of whales during August and September). The fynbos also has several natural hikes, with durations that run from an easy 10 minutes to a more taxing 45 minutes.The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa runs a shuttle service to the popular V&A Waterfront, near the Cape Town city centre and harbour, which has attractions such as the Two Oceans Aquarium, boats to Robben Island, excellent shopping and views of Table Mountain from the many bars and restaurants.


For fine dining, Azure restaurant serves up plump oysters (even for breakfast), tender scallops, succulent abalone and perfectly cooked springbok on its menu that intertwines seasonal ingredients, local flavours and international favourites, with an extensive South African wine list to match (the wine is stored in the specially commissioned ‘Vinoteque’ to be at the best-possible temperature). The expansive balcony has sea views while the interior is a stately combination of dark wood and light linen warmed by a log-burning fireplace. Enjoy ‘Tea by the Sea’, a classic high afternoon tea where you can nibble clotted cream on warm scones and dainty cucumber sandwiches.The Café Grill is more casual: open round the clock, enjoy light meals on its alfresco deck before sampling exotic flavours from the ice cream menu.For cocktails or celebratory drinks, head to the cosy Leopard Bar. A favourite with locals, this is the spot to order a nightcap and catch up on the city’s news and gossip. If you are out on the terrace for a cotton-candy sunset, try The Twelve Apostle’s delicious signature cocktail, aptly named ‘Atlantic sunset’.

Traveller Reviews

Twelve Apostles Hotel

Sandy Young

Our stay at Twelve Apostles was very cosy and they really made us feel welcome. Our room did not have the best views but the champagne, fruit and flowers made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts were out of this world and our celebration meal in the A zure restaurant was divine. Our high tea was amazing, too. The views from the Leopard Lounge balcony were stunning.

Alison Dagul

"We really loved this hotel. Wonderful service and excellent food. Beautiful room but bathroom needed updating and noisy from traffic. Their drivers will take you to Camps Bay & V&A."

Kipp Donlon

"The Twelve Apostles was a beatiful location. The staff was great and they helped us plan and book our entire stay in Cape Town."

Colin James

"Ending with the whole Table Mountain experience, the spectacular views, the grandeur of driving to Cape Point and the 3 nights in the luxury of the 12 Apostles!"

David Hakansson

We both think this was a fanatastic hotel. Small enough for the service to be personal but still with all the resources a luxury hotel should have. Very efficient staff. Located very nice along the cost with calm beautiful surroundings. A place to re lax but with an appreciated transfer service when you want to go to Camps Bay or the V&A Waterfront. We took a mountain walk the first day and the paths are pretty good. Extremely nice pool areas. Beautiful bar with real sunsetter potential. The spa looked wonderful. It is a place where we could stay again.

We had a little mix up in the beginning when the Twelve Apostles had a bunch of construction going on but Lynn took care of that and they upgraded us to an unbelievable room. The staff at that hotel was all over us - it felt like we were the only peo ple staying there.
