When guests walk into the lobby of the Taj Hotel in Cape Town they are actually entering the old Reserve Bank’s banking hall with all its pomp and glory, its magnificent marble pillars and barrel vaulted skylight. This connection to South Africa’s rich history adds character to the already charismatic hotel set against the backdrop of Table Mountain.
Stay in this exclusive Cape Town accommodation where the proximity of the city allows guests the freedom to choose where they want to go daily. Cape Town is the gateway to many wonderful sights and historical land marks. Time to stretch those legs and explore on foot the places around the Taj – restaurants, shops, the Company Gardens, the National Museum and more! The Taj Hotel shuttle takes guests to and from the V&A Waterfront.
For those who prefer relaxing within the hotel premises, head for the Jiva spa – a spa with an Ayurvedic theme and enhanced by the presence of a traditional Ayurvedic doctor. There is also a well-equipped gym and swimming pool, plus three in-house restaurants from which to choose and state of the art conference facilities for international and local businessmen.
Cape Town accommodation in the Taj comprises 175 luxurious rooms and suites found within the original hotel and the new tower that looms towards Lions Head. Heritage suites radiate an aura of colonial yesteryear while Club rooms suit those who require a private lounge and committed butler. In the tower, luxury rooms have private balconies and amazing views over the Mother City. All rooms are modern with high-speed internet and tasteful Indian decor.
The hotel’s Indian roots come through strongly in the Indian restaurant, Bombay Brasserie, offering fine Indian food created by its executive chef from Delhi. More relaxed, the Mint restaurant serves international cuisine, South African dishes and huge buffet breakfasts. The Twankey oyster and champagne bar is a swanky cocktail bar for the trendy set.
Slip out of the elaborate lobby and see the old slave quarters or the Parliament buildings. Enjoy high tea later here in the lobby before Table Mountain beckons.
