Poised above the Atlantic Ocean
Our boutique hotel is flanked by the majestic Twelve Apostles and Table Mountain National ParkVisit site
The award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, is situated on Cape Town’s most scenic route. Poised above the Atlantic Ocean, the five-star boutique hotel is flanked by the majestic Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site, and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. The hotel offers 70 guest rooms, with a holistic spa, private cinema and breathtaking views from the legendary Azure Restaurant and The Leopard Bar.
"Opened in 2002, The Twelve Apostles has undergone a number of incarnations, from a private home, to advertising agency, to hotel. My own journey with Red Carnation began in 2001 in London and culminated in my appointment as General Manager at The Twelve Apostles in 2014.
I am proud to have witnessed the growth and achievements of our team and I’m equally proud of the role the hotel plays in the local community. Our location in the environs of a national park demands diligent sustainability practices. We have impressive water-saving initiatives, a system for the management of waste and energy consumption, and have eliminated single-use plastics from our operations.
For as long as I’ve worked at The 12A, it never ceases to delight me. Our hotel is close enough to Cape Town but far enough away from the ‘madding crowd’ to make your visit seem like a retreat. The V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay beaches, the historic Constantia Wine Route and Hout Bay are all within easy reach.
Our location is exceptional - wedged between mountain and sea – our design is incredible, and our guest experiences are so diverse. Experiences range from exhilarating helicopter flights and mountain walks, to High Tea by the Sea or a treatment in an outdoor mountain spa gazebo. Our views of the Atlantic Ocean are unequalled anywhere else in the city.
We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise very soon."
