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.

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.

 

  • Exceptional dining at Amuse Bouche, with its award-winning wine list
  • In a peaceful location with beautiful landscaped gardens
  • Just 20 kilometres from Johannesburg city centre
  • Pampering in the Balinese Spa Garden for an indulgent and therapeutic experience

Just lovely

Solihull, United Kingdom

Only stayed here for one night during our South African adventure, our only disappointment was our flight delay of 3 hours meant we lost the time we could have had at this lovely hotel. We only had a light meal on the evening and breakfast before we left both delicious. Our room was absolutely gorgeous and very spacious with everything you could need. It was just such a shame we didn’t have the time to use the spa or the lovely outdoor pool.

Spa treatment disappointing

Johannesburg, South Africa

From the booking to checking out was unprofessional and unwelcoming. Waited unattended several times. Snacks and glasses not replenish. Steam room out in the garden with a clear glass door (?!). Actual treatments: C for mediocre. I might have had a trainee - not sure but it felt like it. Had the body exfoliation and massage for R1500. Value was far less. The massage was very poor. Decor starting to look a tad tired. Block drain in shower. Steam room is Ladies cloak room not working. I visited almost two years ago and cannot believe that a place can go backwards so fast! Definitely not a destination Spa and not luxurious at all. This was my last visit.
