Rooted in an ancient approach to wellness, Jiva Grande Spa believes that everything that touches the body must be completely natural.

Each exclusive treatment has been carefully recreated from the fabled lifestyle and culture of Indian royalty, and the healing therapies that embrace Indian spirituality. The natural and holistic Jiva Spa’s seek to bring about mental, physical and spiritual balance, whilst pampering, healing and rejuvenating the body.

Signature Jiva treatments range from relaxing massage, detoxification and aromatherapy treatments to healing cupping therapy and invigorating scrubs and wraps. These treatments are tailored to create a holistic connection from start to finish. Specially selected oils are used together with specific massage rhythms to not only to complement your treatment but to also complement your lifestyle.

Before beginning your chosen treatment, build a little extra time into your session by making use of the complimentary spa wet area, steam room and jacuzzi or, perhaps just take a little time to unwind in the Spa lounge with a cup of specially prepared tea.  There are a host of indulgent beauty treatments on offer like nourishing and deep-cleansing facials, manicures and pedicures as well an array of meaningful rituals and ceremonies, guaranteed to offer a truly calming experience. These same time-honored rituals of welcome, greeting and farewell, which have captured many a visitor´s heart, are part of the Jiva Grande Spa experience around the world.

This month massage your worries away with our combined Vishrama Deep Muscular and Ventoz Indian Cupping Treatment.  Priced at R1 200 per person, this treatment combination begins with an ancient cupping method designed to ease painful points on the back and shoulders. A hot compress of therapeutic Indian herbs follows and is applied through deep massage, ensuring muscles are stretched and knots are released to realign the body and restore energy flow. This two hour long journey to ultimate relaxation is available throughout the month of July 2016.

The Taj Cape Town offers luxury accommodation in Cape Town and is home to the Jiva Grande Spa. For more information and bookings, contact: or see a complete list of treatments in our Jiva Grande Spa Brochure.

Amidst the heritage and history of the Mother City, Taj Cape Town offers the discerning event planner a variety of impressive venues.

Each encapsulating the perfect combination of opulent luxury and modern convenience, these glamorous event spaces share not only a rich history, but a refined sense of intimacy and exclusivity.


Built in 1893, the African Banking Corporation Building on St. George’s is one of Cape Town’s most impressive examples of Art Deco architecture as well as one of South Africa’s top listed heritage buildings. This landmark building has seen many a re-envisioning, including its original demolishment to make way for the renaissance-styled ABC Branch of Standard Bank in 1927 and its conversion into a restaurant in 2007.


In 2014 the ABC Building debuted as Cape Town’s premier conference and banquet venue with every aspect of the building meticulously restored and enhanced with the latest technology and conveniences, including the walk-in bank vault.



Built in the 1920’s as a walk-in vault for the African Banking Corporation, later Standard Bank, The Vault at Taj Cape Town is one of the Mother City’s most unique subterranean venues.



Echoing the building’s historic banking past, the 120m² multi-function space can be used as a stand-alone venue for an art installation, wine tastings, themed banquets and a variety of extraordinary and imaginative events.



Also able to function as a breakaway room or cigar lounge for larger events hosted in the Main Banking Hall of The Reserve at Taj Cape Town, the venue is accessible via a winding staircase or one of the oldest and original vintage open cage lifts in Cape Town.



The original colossal safe-door creates a dramatic atmosphere heavy with history and a sense of the vast wealth that was once protected within the castle thick walls.



An impressive steel cage guards the 1920’s safety deposit boxes and the narrow, low-slung corridor encircling the Vault has been remodelled into an expansive wine cellar storing over 12 000 bottles.



Taj Cape Town provides stylish luxury accommodation in the heart of Cape Town and is home to such fine dining establishments as the Bombay Brasserie and Mint, the Local Grill as well as Cape Town’s premier events venues.
