Owing to Taj Cape Town’s central location, there are endless reasons to take a wander through the surrounds and really absorb the local culture. The inner city is filled with nightlife, cafes, restaurants and galleries among other attractions and places of interest. Two such attractions are stores; Ma Se Kinners and MSK Kreatief are located side-by-side on Church Street, right next to the Taj Cape Town.

Ma Se Inspiration

Capturing Cape Town’s unique, trendy and vibrant air, Ma Se Kinners and MSK Kreatief are sophisticated boutique stores located at 1 Church Street. Each with their own charm, they work hard to foster new talent, support local industry and promote design without limit.

The Ma Se Kinners Store

Ma Se Kinners is a baby, child and apparel store. The clothing is trendy, fun and vibrant and their ranges cater for children in every age group from newborn to the age of 15. The clothing is locally sourced and Ma Se Kinners prides itself on its distinct yet affordable designs. Along with the local kids clothing labels they carry, they also sell their own range of clothing called Baby Luxe and Bows and Arrows which are designed and manufactured entirely within their stores by owner Evert Johan Erasmus.

The MSK Kreatief Store

Next door to Ma Se Kinners is MSK Kreatief. This chic, sophisticated and modern store carries a range of products which appeal to the elegant and fashionable woman with a love of clothing, homeware and jewellery. As with Ma Se Kinners, MSK Kreatief supports local designers and manufacturers. The clothes are designed in consultation with Hugo Amos, with the aim of offering a unique shopping experience, giving wearers elegant and urban details which are so highly sought after.

What makes Ma Se Kinners and MSK Kreatief so unique is their keen desire to showcase local talent and modern design. They are continually evolving to reflect changes in the cultural and design landscape, which is exclusive to Cape Town. Every month the shops unpack fresh stock to this end.

The Taj Cape Town is more than a distinctive luxury hotel, it offers a variety of activities and tours, ensuring that guests savour every last drop of this incredible city. For more information and bookings contact:, or call +27 21 819 2000.

On 9 August 1956, 20 000 pioneering women, led by Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Albertina Sisulu and Sophia Williams-De Bruyn, marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to speak out against the country’s “pass” laws infringing on freedom of movement during the Apartheid era.

To honour the great women of ‘yesterday’ and to spoil the great women of ‘tomorrow’, Taj Cape Town has an array of treats and luxurious delights available throughout the month of August.

Our famous Chocolate-themed Afternoon Tea returns with the addition of a specially prepared Women’s Month crumb-fried nougat – a decadent confection which also pairs perfectly with a glass of pink bubbly!  That’s just to whet your appetite so if it’s more chocolate you’re after, work your way through our selection of oreo cheesecake, chocolate terrine, chocolate lamingtons, chocolate and vanilla panna cotta, malva pudding with chocolate sauce, chocolate scones and many, many more mouth-watering indulgences! Priced at R250 per person Afternoon Tea also includes a glass of sparkling wine.

If pampering is what you need or prefer, we are also offering a luxurious Sushupti signature treatment at Jive Grande Spa. The treatment begins with an aromatic foot bath followed with a body wrap of 22 herbs, green gram flour, honey and fresh cream. A heavenly scalp massage calms the mind while a warm bath of nourishing raw milk, enhanced with rose essence and rose petals washes away the wrap. End with a relaxing massage to leave you thoroughly pampered from head to toe. Priced at R1400, this two-hour long journey towards ultimate relaxation includes complimentary access to the Spa wet area.

We look forward to welcoming you to Taj Cape Town this Women’s Month and wish you a relaxing and fun-filled National Women’s Day on the 9th of August.

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 a variety of premier event venues for your year-end events.
