Taj Taj Cape Town Jiva Spa

Jiva Spa

Drawing on the fabled lifestyle and culture of Indian royalty through the centuries, along with 6000-year-old Eastern wellness philosophies devised to align body, soul and mind, Jive Grande Spa is a special space. At its essence, it encapsulates the ‘science of longevity’ with the wisdom of the ages behind its offerings. Here ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ meaning ‘the guest is god’ is an adage to be adhered to, and holistic treatments are enlivened with meaningful ceremonies and rituals that encourage total relaxation. Taj Cape Town boasts the only Jiva Spa in Africa and the spa’s global principles apply: everything that touches the body is completely natural, with materials like organic cotton, sun-bleached fabric, oven-baked pottery and soy cotton.
