Fairlawns Boutique Hotel and Spa Sandton
Johannesburg Gauteng

Accommodation South Africa

The Fairlawns Hotel opened its doors as a boutique hotel in January 1998, with the original 12 courtyard suites, the restaurant and bar. Today there are another 6 premier suites and a presidential suite, a conference centre, a large fully equipped gym and a spa. Once the private home of John and Anna Thacker, the current owners, the property was bought from the Little Brenthurst Trust of Oppenheimer fame, (hence the Oppenheimer Suite), and consisted of a 10 acre property with horses and stables and rolling lawns (hence the name Fairlawns). Portions of the property have unfortunately been sold off, but it has managed to retain its stately, park-like ambience with huge mature trees and prolific bird-life. The external architecture is Palladian, but there are a myriad styles in the bedrooms, one to definitely suit every taste.
Apart from the beautiful surroundings, which without exception seems to elicit the response "one would never say one is in Johannesburg", the warm, homely ambience is unerringly remarked upon as is evidenced by the comments in the visitors' book. As one visitor commented "a home away from home, only better". Establishment believe that in this 21st century with its mass production of products and services which are becoming increasingly uniform across the globe, people from all walks of life appreciate being acknowledged as a very unique individual, in very unique surroundings. Establishment strive to achieve that.
