It’s no secret that our city is on most foreigners’ travel lists because of its beautiful natural landscapes and unforgettable beaches, but this month Cape Town was added to yet another list, that of the world’s 50 best hotel and honeymoon destinations as chosen by Telegraph UK readers and travel experts.

Featuring on the list among popular must-visit spots like the Maldives, Bora Bora and Zanzibar, Cape Town has been cemented as one of the best places on the globe to spend the most romantic holiday getaway.

The list says that newlyweds, who commonly sought out honeymoon destinations that offered once-in-a-lifetime romantic experiences in the past, have more recently been turning to destinations where they can experience action and adventure as well as big beds, amazing views, good service, and fantastic food. Cape Town definitely comes to mind when considering these preferences.

While on the topic of the best destinations, we can’t leave out one of the best hotels as Cape Town’s very own One&Only hotel was named as the best place to stay on honeymoon in the Mother City.

There are many reasons One&Only makes a great accommodation choice, from its 91 rooms all having their own gorgeous views of Table Mountain, to its restaurant and spa set on its own seemingly-private island.

The hotel is perfectly located for starting off the morning with an adventurous hike up Lion’s Head or simply enjoying the view as you dine on a luxurious breakfast on a private balcony.

Everything about this home-away-from-home offers its guest sheer luxury, adventure and great service with a touch of romance on the side, so we can see why it was named the hotel to honeymoon at.
