It truly is the giving season and Taj Cape Town is doing its best to make a difference in the Mother City for the holidays.

We would also like to remind everyone about our stationery drive for the Amy Biehl Foundation.We have a dedicated box in the Lobby Lounge to fill with stationery for underprivileged children. Any stationery and educational items such as colouring books, flash cards, crayons, colour pencils, chair bags, dictionaries, calculators etc., are welcome and will go a long way to improving the education of children in the townships. Alternatively, a selection of stationery items is also available for purchase at the Hotel Kiosk. All proceeds from these sales will go directly to the Amy Biehl Foundation.
In time honoured Taj Cape Town tradition we will be decorating our fabulous Lobby Lounge Christmas Tree on the 10th of December as well as decorating the hotel in the festive spirit of the season. The Lobby lounge will also have a Salmon and Champagne Bar where delicious fresh and smoked Salmon variations can be enjoyed alongside your favourite glass of Champagne or Cap Classique.

Jiva Grande Spa’s are unique in providing a holistic approach to relaxation therapy inspired by ancient wisdom.
The Jiva Grande Spa philosophy is inherently rooted in India’s ancient approach to wellness. Jiva’s philosophy is one which believes that a spa unfolds the holistic path of life that opens out channels to nurture ones’ life force. It’s this deep understanding of mind, body and spirit as well as their individual needs and interdependency which Jiva Spas embrace.
Jiva signature experiences are treatments exclusive to Jiva Grande Spas and have been carefully recreated from the fabled lifestyle and culture of Indian royalty and the healing therapies that embrace the spirituality of the culture. Included is the Cape Fynbos treatment exclusively primed from the botanical treasures of South Africa.
This journey to ultimate relaxation begins with a scrub and wrap, specially prepared from rhassoul clay, Atlantic sea salts and rooibos tea powder. The scrub and wrapexfoliates, tones and enriches your skin, leaving it supple and smooth. Guests can feel their anxieties and tension dissipate as Jiva Spa’s skilled therapists massage-in a bespoke signature blend made from local marula oil with fynbos, a range from Cape Fleur, leaving guests revitalized and energized.
Finally, guests may transcend into a sense of bliss and tranquillity as they sip a specially commissioned signature Cape tea, brewed from the herbs of marula and rooibos.
More than just legendary treatments and ultimate relaxation techniques, Jiva Grande Spas present world class hospitality to their guests. The same time-honoured rituals of welcome, greeting and farewell, which has captured many a visitor´s heart in India, are part of the Jiva Grande Spa experience.
The essence of ancient Indian wisdom and culture are reflected by the many rituals. From greeting our guests with “Namaste” head bowed and hands folded to the foot bath which has traditionally been performed as a sign of respect, Jiva Grande Spa strives to not only welcome their guests but show how much their visit has been appreciated.
