Full Sensory Bliss
After a loving restoration of the old South African Reserve Bank, Taj Cape Town is nothing short of iconic. Taj Cape Town is one of 98 hotels in the Taj Group, and Cape Town is one of the most popular of their 61 global locations. Taj Cape Town, true to its name, strives to celebrate Indian culture through its décor and influences, without forgetting to add a healthy dose of luxury. Like everything else about this hotel, the use of culture is tastefully done – the original architecture of the Reserve Bank was kept; the lobby area still displays the original clock and the now antique chandelier.
When you enter one of the stunning rooms at Taj Cape Town, a sense of comfort will wash over you – like being at home. With personalised welcome messages on the TV and a small treat, it is difficult not to settle in straight away. With an immensely soft and comfy bed, the sheets will almost call your name – beckoning you to lie back into sheer cosiness.
Life can be stressful sometimes and the best way to relax is to visit the Jiva Grande Spa. In keeping with the Indian theme, the spa draws on the lifestyle and culture of the Maharajahs of ancient India and, along with 6,000-year-old wellness philosophies, aims to align your body, mind and soul. At Jiva, they work with the notion of ‘the guest is God’, or Atithi Devo Bhava, and start any treatment with the ceremonial washing of your feet. The aromatherapy full-body massage will leave you feeling like you have found absolute peace, and you’ll never want to leave.
Taj Cape Town can offer guests a multitude of dining options – all of which are delicious, and include a cigar lounge, an art gallery which offers wine tastings and, various pairing options at the onsite restaurants. Mint Restaurant offers a casual all-day-dining multi-cuisine experience. Bombay Brasserie offers guests the chance to sample authentic but fine-dining Indian cuisine. Finally, The Twankey Bar is the perfect place for a drink. It’s reminiscent of an old speakeasy and offers sensory sophistication with their interactive and creative cocktails. Each dining option offers guests something unique and memorable.
Located only 400 metres from Green Market Square and a stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament, Taj Cape Town is the ideal hotel to visit for business, as well as enjoyment. Being in the heart of the Mother City is never be a bad thing. The hotel has onsite conference rooms available if you’re looking for a stylish conference venue.
