Taj Cape Town
Taj Cape Town is centrally located in Cape Town’s historic city centre. Housed in two 19th-century buildings, once the South African Reserve Bank and Temple Chambers, this luxury hotel blends the old and the new to deliver a world-class experience in the Mother City.
Upon arrival at Taj Cape Town, you walk into a glamorous lobby with marble columns, high domed ceilings and ornate balconies. High tea is served in the lobby lounge while a delicious breakfast spread is on offer at Mint Restaurant. Mint has a relaxed atmosphere and offers all-day dining with a bright, modern interior opening out onto tables in St. Georges Mall.
This mall forms part of Cape Town’s famous pedestrian precinct, and there really is no better place to get a feel for the city, its people, blend of cultures and lively entertainment. After a day out and about exploring, visit the hotel’s Jiva Grande Spa and pick from their range of Ayurvedic treatments using Indian herbs and essential oils.
In the evenings, you can dine at Mint or at Bombay Brasserie, the more formal of Taj Cape Town’s two restaurants. If contemporary Indian cuisine sounds too heavy, pop next door to the popular Twankey Bar for seafood tapas, oysters and champagne.
