Taj Cape Town is a luxury hotel set in the vibrant and historic heart of South Africa’s Mother City, offering guests a combination of refined Indian hospitality and an authentic Cape Town experience.
Occupying two historic buildings, the Taj retains the architecture and many meticulously restored interior features of the original South African Reserve Bank and the old BoE building (formerly the Temple Chambers), built in 1890.
Seventeen new storeys house suites, guestrooms and residences with magnificent views, including those of a new 7th Natural Wonder of the World, the iconic Table Mountain.
Here are the top 7 reasons to visit Taj Cape Town:
1. Luxury and 180 degree views
Our room’s 180 degree view of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head was impressive, and towered over St George’s Cathedral.
We could watch the flat screen TV from just about anywhere, including the lovely big bath tub, thanks to a glass wall in the bathroom.
The satellite signal cut out intermittently, but hubby still happily managed to watch quite a bit of the late night rugby highlights.
That was after we’d returned to our room from a movie at the Labia to discover a delicious complimentary dessert to share.
