Please note that Cape Town is currently situated in a water-scarce region and in the midst of a very severe drought. In light of the water crisis Taj Cape Town is doing everything possible to conserve water at this time and requests your help in safeguarding this precious resource. As such, certain facilities at Taj Cape Town may be unavailable for use or made available by request only.

We thank you for your understanding and in helping us make every drop count.
