Situated in the historic centre of the city, the Taj Cape Town is a combination of rich history and elegant contemporary architecture. Occupying two historic buildings, it 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 of the Mother City and the iconic Table Mountain.

The hotel has been reducing its environmental impact over the past few years by doing away with single-use plastics and ensuring all staff have training on sustainability.

The 176 exquisite rooms offer guests a blend of sophistication and luxurious comfort, combining old-world quality and modern amenities. As well as the gamut of facilities that guests would expect in a luxury hotel room, standard features include high-speed wireless internet, an iPod docking station and charger, an internet-enabled television and a work station with a multi-media hub so laptops can be interfaced with the television.

Positive Impact

Plastic positive

The Taj began eradicating single-use plastic over 2 years ago. Today, all drinking water is provided in recycled glass bottles, all in-room amenities are wrapped in biodegradable material and any cutlery used for take-away food is now made from corn starch.

EarthCheck approved

The Taj has been awarded the prestigious Silver Certification by EarthCheck, the world’s most credible environmental benchmarking and certification programme for the travel and tourism industry. Green operations are part of daily life at the Taj, with all staff trained on the importance of upholding the high environmental standard.
