Mom in a Million Taj Cape Town

By Chris Boyle

The five-star hotel Taj Cape Town has announced a Mom in a Million package – with a price tag of 1 Million South African Rand (roughly $95,000) – to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 11th. The weekend long experience was created to honor the most important woman in our lives, and is designed to be the ultimate expression of what the Mother City can offer Moms in appreciation for all they have done.

As one on South Africa’s finest luxury hotels, Taj Cape Town has cherry picked the most exclusive services and offerings from its network of premium partners to make an experience that Mom and her family will never forget.

The Mom in a Million package includes two first class airfare tickets from anywhere in the world – arriving in Cape Town on Friday, May 9th – ensuring far flung family members can join in the celebration in style. Taj Cape Town’s chauffeur driven Jaguar, or Range Rover, will be on hand throughout the weekend in the personal service of the family as they flit from one indulgent experience to the next.

Offering every conceivable luxury and panoramic views of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Taj’s Cape Town’s regal Presidential Suite spans the top two floors of the hotel. Mom’s comfort and serenity is guaranteed during her two nights stay in the five star penthouse, which comprises two spacious bedrooms, a formal dining area, a large study, a personal exercise room, spa treatment room and steam room.TCT Presidential Suite

On the Friday afternoon, Mom can expect a personal consultation from the designers of leading fashion brand, Kluk CGDT, where she will be able to choose two couture items to add to her wardrobe, before popping off in the chauffeur driven Jaguar for a hair treatment of her choice from Cape Town’s most celebrated hair stylists at Palladium.

Taj Cape Town’s Bombay Brasserie consistently delights patrons with their contemporary expression of Indian cuisine, and is widely renowned as the City’s finest Indian Restaurant. On Friday evening Executive Chef, Harpreet Langani, will lay a gourmet spread fit for royalty, accompanied by a wine list incorporating some of the world’s finest wines.

Saturday sees Mom being whisked away to sit with South Africa’s leading jeweler, Graaf Diamonds, where she will enjoy R100,000 credit towards designing a unique piece of jewelry to remind her of this special weekend celebration. Next on the somewhat extravagant itinerary is an appointment with Frazer Perfume, purveyor of custom made scents, where Mom can take her time devising her own unique fragrance profile under the expert guidance of Tammy Frazer.

Saturday afternoon, the family will take to the air in a private helicopter charter from Cape Town to the spectacular winelands for a gourmet lunch in a choice of three plush venues. After taking in the dramatic scenery and indulging in fine food and wine, the helicopter will ferry the family back to Taj Cape Town, where Mom will be spoiled with a private spa treatment in the Presidential Suite. Therapists from the first Jiva Grande Spa in Africa offer a full spectrum of authentic Indian wellness and beauty treatments which are designed to heal nourish, restore and rejuvenate Mom, so as she can be at her most beautiful for the following day.TCT Jiva Spa

The Mom in a Million experience culminates with a Sunday lunch that promises never to be forgotten. A party of up to eight guests will be hosted in the Taj Cape Town’s stunning Presidential Suite, while a private chef and butler will be on hand to ensure Mom doesn’t have to lift a finger as she enjoys a culinary tour de force in the company of her family and friends. One of Cape Town’s top photographers will be on hand during proceedings to capture moments that Mom will treasure forever.
