Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

Victoria Rd., Cape Town, Western Cape, 8040, South Africa

If you fancy taking a helicopter to the airport or lazing in a bubble bath while looking out floor-to-ceiling windows at sea and mountains, then this award-winning, luxurious hotel and spa may be for you. Enjoying spectacular views of the sea, it is the only man-made structure between Camps Bay and Llandudno, and its enormous indigenous gardens meld into Table Mountain National Park behind it. Rooms are light and airy, and most have either mountain or sea views (the "classic" rooms have close views of the garden). A shuttle runs to the Waterfront every hour all day long, and constantly changing events like "dinner and a movie" night in the 16-seat cinema or special-occasion high teas and wine tastings are the norm. Breakfasts at on-site restaurant Azure, with its stunning sea views, are exceptionally good (free-flowing sparkling wine and live oysters included in the breakfast buffet).
