Part of Cape Town’s charm is undoubtedly is propensity to hide many of its most beautiful and sought-after gems. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the Mother City’s centre, a spa lies secreted in an exquisitely restored heritage building. Here, all the magic of the East takes on a unique South African spin to create a healing environment where pampering is top of mind. Taj Cape Town’s Jiva Spa is offering various specials to spoil those in need of some soulful indulging, including a Mother’s Day package for moms and daughters. 


Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to go far to escape the city – in fact, you can go right to its heart. Ideal for locals in need of some self-care or international visitors wanting to experience the best of Cape Town, Jiva Spa specialises in utilising exclusive natural products and treatments to make guests feel like Indian royalty.


On Mother’s Day, mothers and daughters can revel in a Mum ‘n Me package fit for queens. A reviving pedicure will result in soft, supple soles, while an energising facial will gently cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturise all skin types. The package costs R1250 per couple (valued at R1550p/p). Alternatively, mom can be treated to a Be Loved Indian Aromatherapy Treatment for R600 (valued at R750p/p), or a Warriors Massage to thank her for her tireless love and hard work. This includes a tranquil massage and stretching session worth R1180 but priced at R950p/p. All specials are valid from 1-31 May 2017.

Taj Cape Town’s Jiva Spa is one of the city’s best hidden treasures

As Jiva believes pampering shouldn’t be limited to special occasions, the spa is offering two specials that are valid for the whole of 2017. Weary travellers can take comfort in the Jiva Jet Lag Package, which includes a 90 minute Indian head and foot massage to alleviate swelling and neck and shoulder tension from long flights. The Jiva Mid-Week Saver gets those in the know a 20% discount on all Indian Aromatherapy massages, valid from Monday to Thursday from 9am until 3pm.


Jiva Spa offers an extensive range of experiences and one that should not be missed is the Cape Fynbos treatment – an ongoing favourite with locals and international travellers alike. Unique to the Western Cape, the fynbos biome has become almost as iconic as Table Mountain, comprising distinctive shrubbery that’s known for its medicinal properties and heady fragrance.  Jiva’s exceptional massage treatment uses a bespoke Cape Fleur blend, combining fynbos treasures with local marula oil to energize the body and mind. A rhassoul clay, Atlantic sea salt, and rooibos tea powder scrub and wrap are also part of the experience, to exfoliate and nourish the skin. And no serene South African retreat is complete without a cup of tea – a specially commissioned marula and rooibos tea, of course.
