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.

Best spa in Johannesburg

Johannesburg, South Africa

I love this place, attention to detail. The ladies at the spa are professional and friendly. the setting is truly 5 star. The food and the cocktails are amazing. just go early and chill by the pool, make use of all the facilities. It is a hidden gem and a wonderful oasis.

Disappointing service - not good enough

Poor service - this is not what I expect from a 5 star hotel. You sent us from pillar to post because you didn’t know where we were having dinner or that we were checking in. A serious let down. I’m so irritated I wasted so much money on such a poor experience.
