Take a gourmet heli-flight from The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

Flights back to The Twelve Apostles from Robben Island offer spectacular ocean views…

By Juan Wolmarans
Operations Manager at The Twelve Apostles

Our ‘Scenic Hopper’ heli-flights have created a lot of excitement among our guests. Along with its unique location The Twelve Apostles is known for its food and dining experiences, and this ethos has spilled over into our new gourmet flight excursions.

Flights take off from Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, for those extraordinary harbour views, and fly guests back to The Twelve Apostles. Our executive chef Christo Pretorius and his talented kitchen team have elevated the excursion by curating some imaginative gourmet food experiences, matched with sommelier-picked wines from a boutique local winery.

Flights back to The Twelve Apostles from Robben Island offer spectacular ocean views. We also offer fly-in spa treatments, with gazebos set up in stunning natural surroundings, and we can arrange a heli-trip with a flight of wine for a special celebration. What we really want is for our guests to have fun with it and the ‘burgers and beer heli-flip’ is popular too. In Cape Town where the vibe is relaxed these experiences are very much a ‘come as you are’ occasion. Dress up; dress down – it’s up to you.

Whether it’s sushi by the sea, a panoramic picnic at Stanley Rock or tea by the sea, visitors to the The Twelve Apostles are guaranteed a one-off experience. Tea by the Sea, which can be enjoyed in either The Conservatory overlooking the mountains or the sea-facing Leopard bar includes a gin cocktail prepared with botanicals by our mixologist – I’m sure there’s no other afternoon tea like it on the continent!
