What could be better than having your own private rooftop pool in Cape Town with spectacular views of Table Mountain and the Atlantic? That’s right: having two. Aptly named The One Above, the new penthouse suite at One&Only Cape Town occupies two storeys on the top floor of this urban resort, with four bedrooms and three separate open-plan living spaces surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows.
The suite has a study with fireplace, a library and reading corner, fully equipped kitchen with separate service entrance, formal and casual dining areas and a gym and sauna. But the icing on the cake is the choice of two spacious outdoor terraces, both with their own pools, BBQ areas and plenty of space to throw a spectacular party.
Fans of South Africa’s grape-based exports are spoiled for choice thanks to a 280-bottle temperature-controlled cellar and musical virtuosos can woo their guests with a song or two on the grand piano. Each of the four bedrooms feature their own unique style; three have outdoor terraces and the fourth compensates with a constellation of twinkling lights above the tub in the en suite bathroom. From US $13,100 per night.
