12 Apostles Hotel & Spa

Accommodation in Cape Town - City

Star Rating:0

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 complimentary car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad. Nearest of all is the elegant area 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.


When asked for their memories of The Twelve Apostles, guests are hard-pressed to choose between the magic of the glorious Atlantic sunsets or the kindness of our staff.
Luckily, the two go hand-in-hand. While you watch the sunset from a striped terrace lounger, we'll be at your side with cocktails, cool drinks, or tasty snacks.

Whatever you want, we'll arrange it for you. That's how life is at the Twelve Apostles.
From the complimentary drink that awaits your arrival to the free transfers to Camps Bay and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, from 08h00 to 21h30 you always feel at home.

Your stay includes a full South African breakfast and use of the Sanctuary Spa, (voted best spa resort in Africa) which boasts of hydrotherapy pools, a sauna and flotation tank.

And when the day's over, you retire to a room or suite of elegant luxury. Each one is unique; each is decorated in relaxed, soothing colours for airy, daytime coolness and cosy, night-time intimacy.

Children love the 12A too. As do our guests' pets. Young or old, two-legged or four-legged, we make a fuss of everyone. Nothing is too much trouble – we'll even rustle up a bowl of popcorn or other treats for you to enjoy in our private 16-seater cinema.

Room Description at :


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.

Classic Rooms
A Classic Room is the light and airy retreat that puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. There's a simple yet unforgettable elegance to a Classic Room. Here you'll find crisp white linen, an en-suite bathroom, and impeccable good taste. It's your own Cape paradise complete with a private patio overlooking our stunning fynbos gardens.

Mountain Facing Room
Prepare to be awestruck. A Mountain-Facing Room gives you a private balcony view of the towering Twelve Apostles mountain range. Full-height sliding windows let you choose between an interior of fine fabrics, tasteful furnishings, and a sparkling en-suite bathroom or views across the distant fynbos. This is untamed nature and 21st-century luxury in simple harmony.

Luxury Room
With more floor space and partial views of mountain and sea, a Luxury Room gives you space to breathe and time to relax. There's a choice of decor in sophisticated styles – safari, stamp, shell and natural – that encapsulate the Cape's enduring tradition of hospitality. Ground-floor rooms have a private patio; upper-floor rooms come with a private balcony; all have superb en-suite facilities.

Superior Sea Facing Room
"Maximising the experience of the heavenly marriage between sea and sky…." Why visit the Cape if you can't observe the sea? These split-level, open-plan rooms appear to sweep straight down to the Atlantic. Three steps separate your bedroom and en-suite bathroom from the lower-level lounge and its accompanying balcony or patio. Take dinner from this private vantage point and see the sun set over the crashing rollers.

Garden Suite
If you love seclusion, you'll love our Garden Room with its private garden, flower-filled patio, and open-air jacuzzi. Indoors you'll find a gloriously airy lounge with separate bedroom, bathroom, and toilet. The easygoing decor and furnishings add to the sense of stillness and relaxed intimacy.
This is how life should be: luxurious, unhurried, and filled with birdsong. Both rooms are decorated in Colonial style.

One Bedroom Mountain Facing and Sea Facing Suites
Whichever you choose – sea-facing or mountain-facing – a One-Bedroom Suite gives you the best of both worlds. Outside, there's an uninterrupted view of the Cape wilderness; inside, a taste of spacious modern luxury with separate lounge and bedroom, a large bathroom and separate toilet. These suites are as timeless as the service that supports it. 
Presidential Suite
The magnificently appointed Presidential Suite of 151 square meters offers a private lounge and 8-seater dining room with every conceivable luxury.
The principal bathroom and bedroom afford sweeping uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles Mountains. A wood panelled study or dressing room and second bathroom add to the luxury of the suite. The private and tranquil wraparound terrace offers a perfect setting for cocktails or a private dinner.
The recently re-decorated suite encompasses a free standing antique marble bath, cool white marble floors throughout with under floor heating. Chandeliers are imported from Italy and walls are adorned with antique mirrors and a fabulous collection of South African Masters works of art. Mosaics and finely carved panels adorn the floors, walls and ceilings. Our Presidential Suite is bookable on a request basis only so should you wish to stay in this suite please contact the hotel direct.

The Presidential Suite can easily be extended into a luxury sea facing two bedroomed suite for parties of 4. For parties of up to 10 guests it may also be combined to form part of the Grand Master Suite which offers a total of 5 interleading rooms and suites on its own private floor.
