The perfect Urban getaway infuses glamour into indulgence

Stop what you’re doing right now and book your urban getaway at Taj Cape Town. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a destination.

What’s the single biggest factor you look for when you’re choosing a getaway spot?

Location is bound to be a big one – you want to be able to reach your destination with plenty of time for all the pampering and relaxation to follow. The activities are important too, and of course, it helps if you find yourself in surroundings that make you feel like you’ve just been annointed queen.

You want to be treated like a queen, too. Sure, there’s five-star service – but then there’s service that gives you what you want, even before you realise you wanted it, with all the warmth of home globally recognised as Tajness. Taj Cape Town gives you all of the above, wrapped up with a big silver bow.

Here’s why: for a start, its location just can’t be beat. Imagine being right in the heart of the Mother City with all that bustle, and the city’s best landmarks just a short drive a way (oh, and did we mention the fabulous views of Table Mountain from this vantage point, too?).

Now, to answer the question: “What shall we do?” We don’t blame you if you don’t actually feel like moving beyond your luxury room– but, in case you want to venture beyond your door, gorgeous spoils await at J Wellness Circle. Of course, every spa experience is special, but this is truly something out of the ordinary, offering treatments that are based on traditional Indian healing practices that have been in use for more than 6 000 years. You could opt for a quick treat, or set aside time for some serious downtime with signature therapeutic spa journeys.

Afterwards? Head to one of the hotel’s eateries. You have several to choose from: dress up with a touch of glamour and head to Bombay Brasserie for dinner if you’re in the mood for something a little different, as the restaurant’s nod to Indian cuisine is matched by its accent on South Africa’s heritage flavours, making for a delicious taste adventure and journey. Or, opt for lighter dishes at Mint: enjoy a little theatre while the chefs sizzle up dishes on hot coals, while sharing small plates or cosmopolitan bistro-style fare. You could even treat yourself to sumptuous afternoon tea, sit back and relax with a choice of tea from Ceylon and a decadent slice of cake for afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge.

Whatever you do, make sure you have your camera ready at all times. Taj Cape Town’s interiors are all about old world glamour, the kind of opulence that begs for a reel, and atmosphere abounds, thanks to the hotel’s location in an old heritage building.

What you’ll remember most, though, is the way you felt at Taj Cape Town. Luxury might be in the details, and there’s certainly no shortage of sumptuousness in this hotel – but it’s the heartfelt smiles and warmth of hospitality from Taj Cape Town’s team that truly set it apart.
