At the heart of vibrant Cape Town, the Taj offers a rich history wrapped in elegant contemporary architecture, seamless service and delectable fine dining.

Taj Cape Town is striking, both inside and out. Incorporating a modern tower as well as two heritage buildings, the old Reserve Bank Building and the Temple Chambers, the hotel perfectly balances old-world charm with all the modern amenities travellers expect. Looking out to the surrounding historic buildings of City Bowl, you're within walking distance of interesting sights including art galleries, museums and markets. A complimentary shuttle service means both V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain are a short drive away.

There are two restaurants – a relaxed all-day dining restaurant, Mint, and an Indian speciality restaurant, Bombay Brasserie. The latter is highly popular with the locals so booking a table is recommended. Both are warm and welcoming and serve outstanding cuisine. Alongside this you’ll find a wonderful cocktail bar known as The Twankey Bar which is exceedingly popular with both locals and guests alike. The hotel's superb location on St George's Mall also means that you are not far from the city's best restaurants and nightlife, with Thursdays playing host to the Earth Fair Food Market where you can enjoy street food and local crafts right on your doorstep.

There are 176 rooms and suites and each is light and beautifully appointed. Rooms are located in both the restored heritage buildings and the newer tower. Although they differ in décor and design, the two offer the same modern amenities and present a variety of options, with each of the contemporary Tower Rooms featuring a walk-out balcony. Luxury Rooms have city or mountain views, while staying in a Suite or Taj Club Room includes all the benefits of the Club Lounge, including evening canapés, cocktails and private breakfast. One and Two Bedroom Suites are also available, ideal for families and those that enjoy a little more space and luxury.
