Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa

Refined comfort in a tranquil garden setting

With elegant pillars and intricate wrought iron balustrades, this once private home is set amid landscaped gardens with pretty courtyards and extensive manicured lawns to explore.

Surrounded by trees and an array of bird life, it would be easy to forget you're located just a short distance from Sandton’s shopping malls and restaurants, and 20 kilometres from Johannesburg’s city centre.

This deluxe boutique hotel features just nineteen individually designed rooms, decorated in themes from traditional African to sumptuous French provincial style. Each room offers modern facilities including Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and rainforest showers.

With a perfectly romantic ambiance, Fairlawns offers a tea lounge, Champagne terrace, cocktail bar and an elegant restaurant. Relax in one of the shady poolside cabanas, cool off from the midday sun in the outdoor pool, enjoy a treatment in the award-winning spa or work out in the gym.

Nice place

Bern, Switzerland

Beautiful location surrounded by a lot of trees and a properly cutted lawn indeed. The majority of the staff is friendly and the service mostly good. We had a Grand Chateau Suite which is very good sized in terms of square meters. Also the bathroom is quite big and bright. The whole location is built in the colonial style. The gym is very spacious and well equiped. Nice pool area with only a few sunbeds but during our time we were mostly allone down there. But since this is e 5☆-location which has it's price, there are some details to improve: -a more detailed explanation of the accomodation upon check-in would have been great (e.g. breakfast time, showing the gym/spa, the bar, etc.) -there are some smoking spots but always with full ashtrays and dirty tables => please make sure to check and clean those on a regular basis. -couverture was not be done after 6pm even the clean up sign was out. -the restaurants are good but the food is not outstanding compared to other places in SA. I recommend to have dinner somwhere else down town. All in all still a good and nice place to enjoy a relaxing time!

Perfect break away from the city... while being in the city

This place has treated us like royalty and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away but only has a weekend. The spa environment felt like we were in Bali and the rest of the hotel felt like something international.
