Set in some of the most idyllic locations in the world, One&Only’s collection of one-of-a-kind resorts offers truly unique experiences that allow you to embrace the authentic local culture of a destination while surrounded by complete luxury.
Building on One&Only’s legacy of luxury, the brand has undergone a transformation. The result? An evolution of distinct resort experiences that complement what One&Only already does so well. There's options for every ambience and mood – the blissful Beach Resorts will guarantee a slice of sand for sun-seekers, whilst city slickers can be in the heart of the action at bustling Urban Resorts such as One&Only Cape Town. But perhaps most exciting of all is the new Nature Resorts collection, where preserving the local ecosystems and communities is a central focus and guests can give back via hands on immersive experiences.
Striving to deliver a unique experience born of its environment and locale, the design and lavish décor of every One&Only Resort tells its own individual story, ensuring that each offers the perfect setting for rare moments of romance, adventure, excitement and unforgettable experiences. Discover tranquil retreats in the Indian Ocean, Africa, Arabian Gulf, the Pacific and Caribbean and enjoy unrivalled service, genuine hospitality and blissful relaxation.
A collection of spectacular hotels sat on coastlines scattered across the globe, each property in the One&Only Beach Resorts portfolio captures significant elements of its exotic surroundings. From golden shores accompanied by the iconic skyline of Dubai, to sugar white sands beside azure Maldivian waters, One&Only Beach Resorts exude calmness and relaxation – ensuring a stay that you’ll never forget.
Each celebrating the breath taking, natural beauty of its unique location, One&Only Nature Resorts offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences that allow visitors privileged access to some of nature’s best kept secrets. Whether encountering a rare Mountain Gorilla in the foothills of Virunga Volcano at Gorilla’s Nest, or exploring the uninhabited lands of the great Australian bush at Wolgan Valley, our collection of One&Only Nature Resorts are sure to leave you with a host of unforgettable memories from some of the world’s most beautiful places.
Be among the first to stay at the group’s newest Nature Resorts in Rwanda, one of only three countries on earth where you can still see endangered mountain gorillas. Welcoming guests from October 2018, One&Only Nyungwe House is situated on a working tea plantation at the edge of Nyungwe National Park, where you can find a veritable smorgasbord of wildlife. Hidden amongst the forest, grassland and swamps there are 13 different species of primates and 75 different species of mammals. Animal lovers can join experts on excursions to learn more about the rare chimpanzees, whilst horticulturalists can explore rambling trails fringed with exotic flora.
Opening later this year, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest is nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcano range. Traditional, wooded en-suite Rwandan lodges are fitted out with creature comforts and rustic furnishings, the restaurant will serve diverse fare made from produce grown in the lodge’s garden and the spa will offer pampering based on African remedies. The lodge guarantees all guests an up close and personal, once-in-a-lifetime interaction with one of eight local families of majestic mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
