While honouring the buildings’ original histories, the hotel also breathes new life into them and subtle decorative suggestions of Indian culture are noticeable throughout.
THE SUITE LIFE
A selection of room types are available - from the split level Presidential Suite (the TATA Suite) to rooms with mountain or city views.
All of the rooms are immersed in glamorous old-world luxury combined with 21st Century convenience, including everything from gold paisley prints and old-school armchairs, to complimentary Wi-Fi, an iPod docking station and charger, an internet-enabled television, and a work station with a multi-media hub so that laptops can be interfaced with the television.
However, should you want to forgo the modern conveniences for the day and choose instead to explore the authentic offerings of the hotel, I would suggest that you book yourself a traditional Indian wellness treatment at the Jiva Spa.The staff are all incredibly friendly and make you feel as though it is your divine right to be pampered – if ever you wanted some heavenly treatment, then this is the place to get it!
After an afternoon of pampering, treat yourself to yet another indulgent experience by enjoying some fine dining at the Bombay Brasserie. Located in the old Board of Executors building, Bombay is an upmarket restaurant with high ceilings and elegant décor. It serves up the finest in Indian cuisine.A meal enjoyed here cannot help but turn into a delightful evening filled with beautifully plated, flavourful food.
The next time you feel as though deadlines are looming and stress is running at an all-time high, swap South Africa for India and allow yourself to be lost in time atTaj CapeTown.
