Our Ethos

Our Ethos

Born in 2013, our first “all star hotel” was aptly named “Once in Cape Town..." like the beginning of a travel story: that ONE time you dared to live a little and jump from a plane...or climb Table Mountain with new friends, leaving with travel memories that are etched in your mind forever.

When you stay with us, alone or in a group, you will feel a part of our Once family; a wider community that connects you to people from all over South Africa. We offer continual learning opporutnities and growth for staff, enforce best practices for the environment and support the wider community by partnering with businesses through our local procurement of products and services. 

We do our best to help make the world a little bit better.
