While hon­our­ing the build­ings’ orig­i­nal his­to­ries, the ho­tel also breathes new life into them and sub­tle dec­o­ra­tive sug­ges­tions of In­dian cul­ture are no­tice­able through­out.



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.
