For discerning guests who value the comfort, opulence and timeless style which are the hallmarks of the Taj Cape Town experience, the Hästens suite is a must when visiting Cape Town.

The Taj and Hästens brands have long been the global benchmark for luxury and high quality in the hospitality industry for more than a century.  The Hästens Suite at Taj Cape Town best represents this ethos of surrounding guests with superb quality.

The family-owned company has been producing top-quality beds since the 1800s with the belief that beauty and functionality should go hand-in-hand.  In a world of mass-produced beds, Hästens stands alone in its belief that there is only one way to create a true masterpiece. A team of skilled craftsmen have hand-crafted each bed in their historic facility in Köping, Sweden for more than 150 years.

Each handmade bed is also built bespoke to fit personal specifications using the finest natural materials from sustainably resourced cotton, woo and flax to genuine, hypoallergenic horsehair.  Carefully selected Swedish pine – growing at a natural pace for maximum strength – and steel combine to provide the ultimate in comfort, support, quality and durability.

These natural materials results in Hästens beds offering a deeper, natural sleep which is more restorative and rejuvenating. Each product represents the Hästens passion for giving the world the best bed, and therefore the best sleep and a belief in the natural energy, improved mood, and greater health and happiness which benefits the truly rested.

Hästens have been purveyors to the Swedish Royal Court since 1952 and in 2010 Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces purchased a bed from Hästens for the Taj Mahal Palace’s Tata Presidential Suite prior to President Barack Obama’s arrival at the hotel. The Hästens store in Beverly Hills also sells vast amounts of Hästens to undisclosed celebrities and Hästens has even become a status symbol in Scandinavia, with bedroom doors left ajar simply to show off the iconic blue stripes which are unique to the brand.

The superior quality and meticulous attention to detail which goes into every Hästens bed is available to guests of Taj Cape Town who book our Hästens suite, the first of its kind in Africa.

The Taj Cape Town offers luxury accommodation in Cape Town in heart of the city centre. Guests of Taj Cape Town are welcome to enjoy a quintessential luxury experience and the best night of sleep in our dedicated Hästens suite. Contact for further information.
