This September 5th, South Africa celebrates Secretaries Day joining in with employers the world over to show their appreciation for all the effort, time and hard work their secretaries and assistants put in throughout the year.
Also known as Administrative Professional Day, Secretaries Day was created in America in 1952 with the specific idea of encouraging more people to consider secretarial and administrative positions. This salutation to the hardworking staff who keep the wheels of business and industry turning has grown to become perhaps one of the largest workplace rites.
Always celebrated on the first Wednesday of September in South Africa, the day is celebrated with parties, time off and the all important gifting. Customary gifts range from flowers, chocolates and trinkets to restaurant lunches and spa treatments.
Taj Cape Town is once again inviting you to bring your secretary this coming Wednesday 05 September and to show them just how much you appreciate them.
Secretaries come and enjoy lunch in MINT Restaurant, order a main course and your dessert is on us. Jiva Grande Spa offers all secretaries a 30-minute Deep Tissue Back Massage for R345 or R695 for double. And as a very special treat, a free gift from Miglio designer jewellery is included with purchase of the gift voucher.
Miglio designer jewellery is a proudly South African jewellery range of beautiful, uniquely versatile fashion jewellery. These free gifts are only available while stocks last though, so it’s highly encouraged to get in on this offer as soon as possible.
Wishing all a fabulous Secretaries Day this September from Taj Cape Town!

Our Expressions series continues its journey of bringing unique Cape Winelands experiences to the heart of Cape Town with the new September offering – Expressions of Franschhoek.
Pairing wines and cuisine from the beautiful Franschhoek valley, Guest Chef Michelle Theron will wow Cape Town pallets with her passion for the home-cooked, traditional farm-style food which has made the Cape Winelands cuisine at Pierneef à La Motte restaurant a true treat for patrons.
The launch of the new expressions menu will be taking place on Thursday 30 August before hitting Mint Restaurant as the Table d’Hôte dinner menu for the month of September. The evening will begin at 18h00 with a private wine tasting, followed by a 4-course dinner with paired wines at 19h00 for 19h30 at a cost of R350 per person including mineral water.
A special room rate is also provided for attendees to enjoy the elegant luxury of Taj Cape Town at R1750 per room, breakfast included.
Those not attending the launch are also invited to join us on Thursdays at the Earth Fair Market between 12h00 and 15h00 to taste a selection of regional wines from the current Expressions series as well as meet some of the people who created them.
Featured wines from the launch are now also available for purchase at cellar door prices through our new wine kiosk which is open seven days a week!
As usual, those dining from our Expressions menu or who purchase wine at cellar door prices at our Thursday tastings, stand a chance to win one of many prizes, including an evening stay for two in a luxury room at Taj Cape Town.
