Hotel Overview

Sense of place

The Twelve Apostles is in the scenic suburb of famous Camps Bay, and it offers a free shuttle service into the city.

Rooms at the Twelve Apostles

There are just 70 rooms at the Twelve Apostles Hotel which helps to create the relaxed feel and ultra-personalised service. Waking up in your spacious, elegant suite you’ll have invigorating views of either the Atlantic Ocean, or the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range within Table Mountain National Park – and when you’re not relaxing in your room, you can loll in one of the hammocks that are scattered around the peaceful gardens.

Food and drink

Cape Town is home to some of the best restaurants in the world, and The Twelve Apostles makes sure it doesn’t let the side down with its mixture of fine a la carte dining, and simple food done to perfection on the grill.


You can then enjoy a classic film at the hotel’s private cinema and even order breakfast or dinner at the Azure restaurant with a special movie menu to enjoy with the family (choose from comedies, adventure, drama and foreign films), or step out onto the beach and enjoy a delectable picnic laid out for you by the hotel staff.  Enjoy being pampered at The Spa with an extensive range of therapies - there is also a fitness room, two pools and lots of hammocks dotted around the hotel for when you want to simply lie back and enjoy the view. 

Activities at The Twelve Apostles

It’s really all about relaxation at the Twelve Apostles, whether you’re drifting off in one of their salt water floatation pools, or having a massage with views of the sparkling Atlantic from one of their breathtaking mountain gazebos. If you’re feeling more energetic you can go trekking in the Table Mountain National Park, followed by a picnic, or head down to the famous Clifton Beach for sun-bathing and dolphin spotting.
