Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa is situated in the affluent business district of Sandton in Johannesburg. But while this area is known for its bustling shops, offices and markets, Fairlawns is a serene green space of manicured lawns, lavish Palladian-style architecture, designer decor and world-class service.
The beautiful spa at Fairlawns is built in the Balinese style with bamboo furniture, carved wooden panels and stone Buddhas decorating the serene gardens. It makes the perfect place for a soothing treatment, including facials, massages and body wraps.
Open fires, antique furniture and marble-decked bathrooms give Fairlawns’ suites a country-house feel. With names such as African, Windsor and Florentine, each individually designed space is truly bespoke. Twelve are set around a formal, leafy courtyard, six overlook the immaculate gardens, another 20 are located in the Chateau wing, and there’s the Presidential Residence, which has three en-suite bedrooms, living room, dining room, study and kitchen.
This romantic and relaxed hotel, with its spa sanctuary, beautiful swimming pool and lush gardens – home to colourful exotic birds – has everything you need for a magical luxe stay. But if you want to explore Jo’burg, there is a free shuttle to take you to the shopping centres in Sandton. And there’s lots to see in this vibrant city, including fascinating museums detailing the history of South Africa.
Fairlawns’ fine-dining Terrace restaurant provides memorable meals in a sumptuous setting of pristine table linen, silver cutlery and cut-crystal glassware. The wine-pairing menu includes mouth-watering dishes such as confit of farmed sea bass, and langoustine and salmon ravioli.
