Cape Town, South Africa
Insider’s Review of The One Above
The top two floors of the great One&Only hotel, set within a few minutes’ walk of the bustling Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, are reserved for the exclusive-use, two-storey, utterly magnificent The One Above Penthouse. More specifics appear below, but quite beyond its maximal creature comforts, we should note that The One Above is graced with some of the most staggering views in the solar system. So you’ll be excused if you look out from The One Above—at the Southern Atlantic, colossal Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Devil’s Peak, and at Cape Town, one of the fizziest cities on earth—and have a certain quiet sense of proprietorship. The ultra-luxurious two-storey penthouse inspires physical and philosophical exultation.
