The Fairlawns

A stylish boutique hotel with an air of eclectic sophistication
Johannesburg holidaysSouth Africa· 40 Rooms · ££

Previously a luxury private residence in Johannesburg suburbs

The chic, upscale suites are individually decorated in varying themes ranging from Eastern influence to French provincial.

Located in Johannesburg - South Africa’s largest city and gateway to the rest of Africa - Fairlawns is situated just 6 km from central Sandton, and 20 km from the Johannesburg city centre to offer the upmarket traveller a delicate mix of luxury and convenience. Fairlawns was one of the first five-star boutique hotels to be opened in Johannesburg in 1997. It has grown from a staff complement of 13 to just over 100 today. Originally the Oppenheimer Estate, Fairlawns still exudes a park-like ambience with huge trees and prolific birdlife, but now boasts 40 suites, a presidential spa apartment, two restaurants, a Balinese spa, a conference centre and a fitness centre.

The Grand Chateau wing offers 20 suites, enjoyed by group travellers as a private residence due to the area’s direct drop off access. Adjoining family suites are available in this wing. This wing offers special needs access and elevator. The 12 newly refurbished Courtyard Suites are all individually decorated with high corniced ceilings, sumptuous fabrics and custom made classical furniture. The spacious bathrooms are fully equipped with granite vanities, large separate showers and baths. Working fireplaces enhance the romanticism of the suites. Unlike the Courtyard Suites, the Villa Suites overlook the rolling lawns, pool and have a lovely communal breakfast terrace.

Explore the wider area with a Soweto Tour, visit Museum Africa, Apartheid Museum, Orlando Towers, Hot Air Ballooning in Magaliesberg, Rosebank Craft Market and Amatuli Gallery, the De Wild Cheetah Research Project or the Elephant Sanctuary. Alternatively, rejuvenate, relax and restore in the exquisite bamboo forest gardens of the Balinese-style Spa at Fairlawns. The Award-Winning restaurant boasts an exquisite menu, paired with a Diamond Award-Winning wine list.
