Te One & Only Cape Town (, located within the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, a varied shopping and entertainment district built seven years ago on the edge of the historic harbor, served as the home base for several days worth of excursions. Te building itself, designed by local architects Ruben Reddy and Dennis Fabian & Berman perfectly encapsulates the city by paying homage to its rich and diverse history with a defnite eye toward a dynamic future. While located in the midst of a bustling city, being on property feels very much like a secluded enclave, the ideal embodiment of an urban oasis. An expanse of windows in the lobby frames the view of Table Mountain. Indigenous art and architectural accents play heavily throughout the design. To the left of the lobby is a three-story homage to food and wine, housing the Wine Loft and Reuben's restaurant, and defned by an illuminated wall holding 5,000 bottles of wine. At the opposite end of the lobby and lounge is Nobu, the frst African outpost of Master Chef Nobuyuki 'Nobu' Matsuhisa's internationally acclaimed empire that serves as the property's fne dining concept. It has the distinction of being the frst Nobu with a kid's sushi menu, which is complemented by sushi-making classes for kids available through its comprehensive KidsOnly program. 37 V&A Waterfront.
