Kids at the One&Only

We never take any of our kids with us because we used this as an opportunity to spend time with each other and catch up on work. However, if you are a guest at the One&Only here are some pics of the kids entertainment area.

Kids Activities

To use the kids area, you need to book beforehand due to Covid19 regulations. There are also nanny services available at the One&Only hotel. You would need to book this in advance.

You can also borrow board games and a PS4 console to take up to your room.

There is also a large gym area with a certified personal trainer. The personal trainer is also a trained hiking guide. As a guest wanting to explore hiking in Cape Town, you can enquire about booking a hike with the hiking guide.

Afternoon Tea

Sitting at the outside table at the One&Only hotel for the afternoon tea was spectacular. It provided a great sense of exclusivity as it felt like it was just the 2 of us and the majestic scenery. Your eyes will be treated to stunning views of Table Mountain while your ears will tune in to the soothing sound of running water. This is just the beginning before your taste buds are tantalized with what the One&Only’s afternoon tea has to offer. We brought our laptops with us and used this setting as our office for the afternoon after our date. It was such a delight to have a change of scenery to work in for the afternoon. Here are some pics from our Afternoon Tea.
