In keeping with Taj Hotels' tradition of breathing new life into iconic properties, this hotel encompasses two historic buildings: The Temple Chambers, built in 1890, and the original South African Reserve Bank Building, dating back to 1932. These properties house heritage guest rooms and suites, with tasteful furnishings that complement the original architecture. In addition, a newer 17-story tower features bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-out balconies with city or Table Mountain views. All accommodations come with flat-screen TVs, Posturepedic mattresses, complimentary newspapers and fresh flowers. 

The Taj brand's signature Jiva Spa showcases ancient Indian therapies and rituals in its Signature Experiences, including the Cape Fynbos, which incorporates South African botanicals. Bombay Brasserie serves haute Indian cuisine, and Mint offers more casual grilled fare. For something memorable, guests can enjoy a 5-course tasting menu with wine pairing or cigars and cognacs in the lobby cigar lounge. Twankey Bar presents wine, beer, cider and small bites in a handsome, colonial-era setting. Board, conference and banquet rooms include The Vault, a former walk-in bank vault that now boasts a wrap-around wine cellar.
