It’s easy to forget that you’re in Johannesburg when you enter the grounds of Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa. Once the private residence of the Oppenheimer family, this gracious hotel has the feel of a country manor set amongst trees, vast lawns and neatly trimmed hedges.
Leave city stress behind as you sit down to a decadent high tea served overlooking the hotel gardens. Or spend the afternoon shopping in Sandton, just a few minutes’ drive away, then return for a sunset cocktail out on the Champagne Terrace. As night falls, look forward to fine dining complemented by an award-winning wine list at the hotel’s restaurant, The Terrace.
Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa has 40 suites, each individually decorated with lavish designs and luxurious furnishings. There’s a beautiful outdoor pool area, a fully-equipped gym and a library stocked with books and newspapers. Add to that the hotel’s impeccable service; and you know you’re in for a relaxing stay,
Finally, we’d highly recommend visiting Fairlawn’s Balinese-style spa. Here you’ll find open-sided treatment areas surrounded by a lush garden with gently trickling water features. Lie down for a massage and you really do feel like you’re drifting off to Bali – even if only for a couple of hours.
