Nakheel has opened the first One & Only resort in South Africa at Cape Town's world famous harbor, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

The One & Only Cape Town builds on Nakheel Hotels’ strong relationship with Kerzner International, owners and operators of the One & Only and Atlantis brands; and expands its portfolio of luxury hotels in key destinations in Africa.

The 137 room hotel is built around two artificial islands, with a huge swimming pool fringed by palm trees, and two restaurants operated by celebrity chefs Gordon Ramsay and Nobu Matsuhisa.

The One & Only Cape Town is the newest high-end hotel to open in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, which has become one of South Africa's most visited destination.

Dubai World, Nakheel Hotels’ parent company, is part of the consortium that owns Victoria & Alfred Waterfront totaling some 123 hectares of prime property in Cape Town and is set to be center stage as South Africa hosts the 2010 FIFA World Cup in June next year.

Dubai World Chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said, “We see a bright future for this dynamic continent and continue to invest in Africa for the long term. We are delighted to add the One & Only at Dubai World’s own Victoria & Alfred Waterfront to our Africa portfolio. Our strategy is to work with the best partners and invest in high-end assets in key destinations around the world, which deliver real, measurable results. The One & Only Cape Town is part of that highly successful business model.”
