One&Only Cape Town

One&Only Cape Town has scooped the Top City Hotel in Africa & Middle East acknowledgement in the 2012 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, confirming it is officially the best hotel in the region.

Leading international travel publication Travel + Leisure announced One&Only Cape Town’s position as No. 1 Top City Hotel in the Africa and Middle East region and voted No.14 in the Top 100 World’s Best Hotels with a average score of 95.33 overall.

Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best is arguably the most prestigious international awards program for luxury hotels. Given the size and diversity of these continents and regions, these awards have understandably been met with great excitement from the One&Only international team.

“It is the never ending pursuit of service excellence, combined with authentic South African hospitality, genuine friendliness and ensuring guests needs and expectations at every touch point are exceeded, that has contributed to this recognition” comments Clive Bennett, managing director One&Only Cape Town.

Fiercely determined in their desire to be at the top of their game, the efforts by the One&Only Cape Town team to be viewed as among the best in South Africa have not gone unnoticed.

Their recognition as No.1 Top City Hotel in Africa & Middle East by the 2012 Travel + Leisure Awards is a much appreciated reward for their dedication to service and proof that they are not only the best in the city, but among the best in the world.

Due for publication in Travel + Leisure Magazine and online at this August, the Travel + Leisure 2012 World’s Best Awards is a fully audited awards program based solely on reader entries (travel-industry professional votes are eliminated) that recognises the top destinations, hotels, airlines, cruise lines, river cruises, car-rental companies, and outfitters.

The results are from an annual World’s Best Awards Survey, where readers rank their favourite destinations and travel companies on a variety of characteristics.

One&Only Cape Town is the African flagship of the world-renowned One&Only collection. This five-star luxury urban resort was the first city-based resort initiated by the brand and since its opening just three years ago in 2009 has achieved outstanding success, receiving a number of local and international awards for its varied world class offerings.

Understandably, the resort, situated in the heart of Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, is one of the city’s most desired luxury destinations.
