Taj Taj Cape Town

Taj Cape Town

Explore the city right from our doorstep… Originally home to the South African Reserve Bank and Temple Chambers and, later, the Board of Executors (BoE), Taj Cape Town effortlessly combines the legacy of the old with the luxury of the new. Located in the centre of the old city, it boasts a strong sense of place and is within walking distance to some of South Africa’s foremost landmarks and attractions and an eclectic array of shops, galleries and restaurants. Spread across two heritage buildings, all 176 rooms have spectacular city views or overlook the iconic Table Mountain. Our Taj Club Rooms and Suites offer all the benefits of the executive Club Lounge like butler service, evening canapés and private breakfast, while the One and Two Bedroom Suites are perfect for the discerning traveller or for families. We offer an array of dining experiences, from Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge to Bombay Brasserie, our fine dining Indian specialty restaurant, and Mint Restaurant for relaxed all-day dining. The Twankey Bar specialises in handcrafted prohibition-era cocktails and delicious tapas-styled dishes. Rejuvenate your senses at our Jiva Grande Spa, the first of its kind in Africa. Indulge in unique and authentic treatments based on the ancient wisdom of the Indian philosophy of wellness or spend time at the fitness centre and heated indoor pool. Steeped in tradition, Taj Cape Town is more than just an hotel, it’s a place where service, sincerity and expertise combine to give you an experience unlike any other.

Save Water and Secure Your Future

Cape Town is situated in a water-scarce region and recently experienced severe drought conditions. After much hoped for winter rains, our dam levels have risen to 76% capacity, in comparison to last year’s figure of 37%. As of 1 December 2018,water restrictions have been lowered from Level 5 to Level 3. In order to secure our futures, we must remember that saving water is not just a Cape Town issue, it is a global issue. Taj Cape Town is fully committed to doing what it can and so urges Capetonians and visitors to our beautiful city to be mindful and to implement water-saving measures where possible.

Beautiful hotel with table view in Centre of Cape Town
The Hotel is lying in the Centre of the city and from upon floors suites with two balconies so beautiful view to the table mountains. The view from bathroom , livingroom, from bedroom was exceptionally! The rooms are beautiful decorated. By arrival we waited long time and got the room after many times asking at 3-30 in the afternoon. The corner room to wich the staff changed us, was really great, and the bed absolute comfortable. The housekeeping service in the rooms was a little difficult many times asking for the towels. In the night forgotten to make up the room view times. We where waiting for our flowers many hours, that friends given to the reception up, for our room. After many hours delivered. As well a parcel gift, delivered after we were asking many times and after two days. At breakfast, was cleaned very quick after eating, a positiv point, food and beverage was good, but not perfect. The reception service depends of the persons. The overall staff was very friendly. The hotel I would select again, is beautiful and totally central place with a wonderful view from the upon suites to the table mountains. The houskeeping and arrival, waiting as longer as normal to get the room, can be made better. Therefore I have in view points only 4 stars inread 5 stars! But it was a wonderful place to stay.
