India’s luxury hotel group has breathed new life into the old Board of Executors building. There’s plenty of heritage here, but a new tower also houses the chic contemporary-styled rooms, many offering spectacular views of Table Mountain. Service and facilities, including the excellent restaurant Bombay Brasserie, are top grade.
