Now Open in South Africa: The Taj Hotel Cape Town

January 11, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Taj Cape TownThe world's gaze has turned to South Africa as one of the hottest destinations of 2010. To quote The New York Times: "as host of the 2010 World Cup this summer, South Africa has gotten its game on with a flurry of new stadiums, new hotels and safari lodges." One of the most exciting is the brand spanking new Taj Hotel in Cape Town, housed in two historic buildings in the heart of downtown, a big player in the revitalization of the inner city. From the new glass tower, guest rooms offer sweeping views over Cape Town and Table Mountain. Facilities include state-of-the-art banqueting and meeting rooms, a Jiva Grande Spa, fitness center, and a variety of dining options (Champagne and oysters, anyone?)
