Thanks to welcoming smiles, impeccable service, and a staff that knows when to appear and when to slip away, you will immediately be seduced by the atmosphere of this hotel of the Relais & Châteaux chain, their first in Johannesburg.
The nine suites are decorated in a warm mix of neutral, soothing, and natural tones, along with wood and wicker, and contemporary or African-inspired furnishings alongside a few well-chosen pieces of art. Each room is different and equipped with a private balcony. Depending on the time of day, you'll enjoy the large swimming pool that stretches out in the shade of a hedge of palms or the quiet of the magnificent library warmed by the fireplace for some cooler evenings.
The menu is renewed each day and you will feast on recipes with Asian and Indian influences prepared with excellent local produce, some straight from the herb garden on the property. Prepare yourself for a hushed and rejuvenating interlude in the heart of the city.
