Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa
Arguably one of the most unique hotels in Cape Town, the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean with Table Mountain National Park setting the stage in the background.
Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa Overview
Arguably one of the most unique hotels in Cape Town, the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean with Table Mountain National Park setting the stage in the background. Known as the best sundowner spot in the city, it boasts stunning ocean and mountain views. The hotel sits isolated on a scenic route surrounded by untouched nature but is yet only 20 minutes away from the city centre and other attractions like beaches and wine farms.
Retreat to this fynbos oasis and leave the whirl of the city behind. Fynbos is the indigenous vegetation of the Cape Floral Kingdom and enchants visitors with their aesthetics and scents. The hotel was named after the imposing Twelve Apostles mountain range, which creates the picturesque backdrop of the property. After a recreative hike, guests can embark on a culinary journey at award-winning Azure or three other dining options, treat themselves to a message at the holistic spa or watch a movie at the private cinema.

Twelve Apostles Spa
The Twelve Apostles Spa won South Africa’s Leading Spa Resort from the World Travel Awards in 2015. The award-winning spa is nestled between the majestic mountains and the azure Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by a tranquil National Park. The spa offers a number of different and unique options.
Indoor Treatment Rooms
The extensive spa facilities include seven superbly equipped indoor treatment rooms with rain showers, for dual and single treatments. The rooms have been designed to offer a serene, calming ambiance, with heated treatment beds, fluffy towels, scented candles and relaxing music. They are the perfect retreat for both hotel guests and day spa visitors wishing to enjoy a selection of personalised individual treatments or exclusive Spa Journeys.
Outdoor Mountain Gazebos
While the interior of The Spa is exceptional, The Twelve Apostles’ unique position on the mountains overlooking the Atlantic Ocean means that a sunset massage in one of two outdoor gazebos is an absolutely unforgettable experience. It is the perfect place for couples to escape and have a side-by-side massage surrounded by nature, with the Atlantic stretching into the horizon in front of you for as far as the eye can see.
Incorporating water jets at the optimal temperature for rebalancing your body’s metabolism, use of the warm and cold plunge pools is available to all spa guests inclusive of your treatment. In addition you may also like to try a complimentary session in the unique Salt Water Flotation Pool. Offering a liquid, reduced gravity experience, floating in the salty water eases jetlag and results in maximum relaxation – research has shown that just 20 minutes is equivalent to a full two hours of sleep.
Rasul Chamber and Rain Shower
The Rasul Chamber offers a traditional Arabic cleansing ritual through the use of gentle steam and mud. This relaxing skin-smoothing self-treatment blends mineral-rich mud, steam and heat to provide an experience that cleanses, releases toxins and rejuvenates. The self-applied mud hardens in dry heat, allowing the skin to draw out impurities from the body. As the mud softens again, its beneficial ingredients and natural minerals are further absorbed by the body. A gentle rain shower signals the end of the programme, leaving you with glowing skin. The ritual is recommended for enjoyment with a partner.
To make the most of your time at The Spa, recline and relax on a comfortable lounge chair in the Tranquility Lounge, in-between and after spa treatments. Sip herbal tea, browse a selection of magazines, read a book or simply close your eyes and meditate. It’s the perfect way to complete your spa journey
Perfect Finish Tourmaline Salon
Turn a manicure or pedicure into a special experience in the Perfect Finish Tourmaline Salon. This is the perfect treat for bridal parties, mother and daughter or two friends wishing to get pampered while spending some quality time together. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or herbal tea whilst the therapists get your hands and feet into tip top condition.
Health Bar Buffet & Menu
Spa guests may take advantage of our complimentary Health Bar buffet during their time at The Spa, with a selection of healthy homemade snacks, fresh fruit juices and still mineral water. For something more substantial we also offer an exclusive Spa Menu at an additional cost, featuring delicious, wholesome meals conducive to a healthy lifestyle.
