Overview of Taj Cape Town

The Taj Cape Town is a luxurious tribute to the grand architecture of the original South African Reserve Bank and other historic buildings, constructed in the 1890s. The facades of the buildings have been impeccably restored, while the interiors were designed to recreate an era of glamour with a distinctly Indian influence. The hotel is ideal for guests wanting an upscale holiday experience where no detail is missed and every opportunity for refinement is offered.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the Company’s Gardens, St George’s Cathedral and Greenmarket Square, and is ideally situated for easy access to all of Cape Town’s attractions. Nearby must-see sites include Table Mountain, the excellent beaches at Camps Bay and Clifton, and the world-class shopping at the V&A Waterfront. For the ultimate in pampering and relaxation, you can visit the Jiva Grande Spa for a range of traditional Indian wellness treatments.

      The Taj had a perfect location, and even though we rented a car we also walked a lot around in Cape Town.
