One&Only Cape Town

Cape Town: 4 Nights

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is consistently voted amongst the top cities in the world to visit. It is no surprise therefore that this wonderful city is one of the highlights of a holiday to South Africa.  The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers.

One of the main tourist attractions is the tastefully restored V&A Waterfront, with its many shops, bars and restaurants. There is also an aquarium, and one of the largest craft markets in Southern Africa. Boats offer tours of the harbour from the quayside, and the whole place is always buzzing with life and activity.  The City Bowl is home to many museums and historical buildings, which can all be viewed from a 'topless' hop on / hop off tourist bus, complete with interesting commentary as you ride around the city.

The adventurous can climb up (or abseil down) Table Mountain, windsurf or kitesurf at Bloubergstrand Beach, dive in shark tanks, or do any one of a dozen more adrenalin pumping activities. For a more relaxed pace of life, there are miles of sandy beaches for soaking up the African sun, or enjoy a quiet stroll through the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

One&Only Cape Town offers an unprecedented level of luxury and style in one of the world's most fascinating cities. With its spectacular location in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and its stunning views of Table Mountain, the resort is a destination in itself.

Guests can dine in one of 3 top restaurants, including the continent’s only outpost of the Michelin-starred Nobu, which fuses Japanese cuisine with South African flavours. Revel in the high energy vibe of Vista Bar or sample rare and undiscovered vintages at the stunning Wine Loft which has more than 5,000 bottles of wine from across the globe.

The sublime calm of the sophisticated One&Only Spa offers an indulgent escape, while the Fitness Centre offers a wide range of state-or-the-art equipment and yoga/Pilates classes. The temperature-controlled, infinity-edge pool is the finest in Cape Town, framed with private cabanas and majestic palms.

98 of the rooms and suites are located within the 7 storey Marina Rise, and feature expansive glass doors that lead onto private balconies offering unobstructed views of the picturesque harbourside and iconic Table Mountain. The remaining 40 rooms and suites are located on a secluded and lushly landscaped island surrounded by a waterway, each featuring a private balcony or terrace and waterway views. Sumptuously appointed bathrooms have oversized baths, a roomy rain shower, and dual marble vanity units.

Or just soak up the sunshine and salt air, and do absolutely nothing but relax as it is only a few steps from your bed to relaxing under a palm tree by the sea.

Exotic flavours from around the world will enthral epicureans in the restaurants, while easy living is assured with beach barbecues and island-inspired cuisine paired with award-winning wines.

Important Travel Information For South Africa

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

As of the 18th March 2020, passport holders from certain countries are now required to obtain a visa before travelling to South Africa - including the United Kingdom; United States of America; France; Germany; Italy; Spain; Switzerland; and New Zealand.

All international travellers are therefore advised to contact their local South Africa High Commission or Embassy to establish whether they need to apply for a visa. There may be a fee charged for issuing a visa. Please note that some visas may take a long time to be processed so please do take this into consideration, as it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa in place before you travel. Visas are not issued at South African ports of entry and airline officials are obliged to insist on visas before allowing passengers to board.

Please note that anyone travelling to South Africa should have a valid return ticket and a valid passport. Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 30 days from the date of exit from South Africa. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport should have at least 6 months validity from the date of entry to South Africa so to avoid problems on arrival, we advise that your passport meets this requirement instead. The passport must also have sufficient pages for entry/exit stamps if you require a visa to enter the country - AT LEAST 2 BLANK PAGES. If you do not need a visa, one page is sufficient.

TRAVELLING TO/FROM SOUTH AFRICA WITH CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 18 YEARS OF AGE AT DATE OF TRAVEL: It has been recently announced that the immigration laws for children travelling to South Africa who do NOT require a visa are to be relaxed, however not all airlines have updated their systems at the moment to reflect this amendment. Therefore, until we have received notification that all systems have been fully updated with the new relaxed rules, we are strongly advising that all passengers still adher to these following guidelines: Parents travelling with children must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child, showing full details of the child's parents. If the birth certificate is in a language other than English, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation issued by a competent authority in the country concerned. If the child is adopted, the adoption certificate must be produced. If only one parent is travelling, said parent must also show consent in the form of an affidavit from the other parent named on the birth certificate authorising the child to travel (the affidavit must be no more than 3 months old from the date of travel - a blank Parental Consent Affidavit can be downloaded from http://southafricahouseuk.com/documents/parentconaff.pdf), or a court order granting full parental responsibilities to the travelling parent, or (where applicable) a death certificate for the deceased parent. Legally separated parents should also provide a court order when the other parent does not give consent. Where a person is travelling with a child who is not their biological child, he/she must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child supplemented by affidavits from the child's parents/legal guardian giving consent for the child to travel and copies of the identity documents or passport of the parents/legal guardian PLUS their contact details. There are also additional rules for unaccompanied minors - available on request. PLEASE NOTE: All documents must be original - PHOTOCOPIES ARE NOT ACCEPTED. In the case of foreign countries that do not issue unabridged birth certificates, a letter to this effect issued by the competent authority of the foreign country should be produced. For more information, contact the South African High Commission via http://southafricahouseuk.com/ or the South African Department of Home Affairs via http://www.dha.gov.za/.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with current passport and visa requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to South Africa.

To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

There is a risk of malaria in and around the Kruger National Park/Mpumalanga Province, the Limpopo (Northern) Province, and the north-eastern part of KwaZulu-Natal - check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

There is no risk of yellow fever in South Africa, so a yellow fever vaccination is NOT required for travellers whose sole destination is South Africa. However, in accordance with International Health Reguations, South Africa requires all travellers over one year of age arriving from a yellow fever risk country, or having been in transit longer than 12 hours at the airport of such a country, to have a yellow fever certificate. These countries include Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
