The Hästens Suite
Taj Cape Town strives to host guests in comfort, opulence and timeless style while providing the epitome of culture, atmosphere and service. The Hästens suite is a continuation of this ethos and the first of its kind in South Africa.
Hästens has had a vast history of providing exceptional bedding to the hospitality industry for over a century. Superior quality and an amazing attention to detail are the hallmarks of the bedding and furniture in this suite.
Hästens is family-owned company which has been producing top-quality beds since the 1800s. The core theme of Hästens products is the belief that beauty and functionality should go hand-in-hand. Each bed is a masterpiece, hand-made with pride and care by skilled craftsmen using the finest natural materials to ensure not only sustainability, but also the most amazing comfort.
The beds themselves are made from hard-wearing natural materials such as horsehair, flax, wool and cotton, all of which are excellent for regulating body temperature. From the rich colour palette to the inspired hand-stitching – the beauty of a Hästens bed lies in its exquisite detail. Add to this, the stability and quality of the Swedish-pine frames and guests are ensured a divine sleeping experience.
Hästens have been purveyors to the Swedish Royal Court since 1952 and in 2010 the Taj Mahal Palace purchased a bed from Hästens for President Barack Obama’s stay in their Tata Presidential Suite.
