The Hotel

Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Number of Rooms: 40

Important Note: Though the Fairlawns is a Premier property, we are able to offer it to our guests at Distinctive-level rates.

Once the private home of the current live-in owners, the original Fairlawns was a 10-acre parcel with horses, stables and rolling green lawns. Today it retains its park-like ambience with large, mature trees and prolific birdlife. This exquisite setting offers guests exceptional tranquility with close proximity to the city center, as well as personal hospitality that makes you feel you are a guest at an exclusive private estate. Each unique suite is a work of art in its own right, with refined décor in a variety of European period themes. From the spacious and opulent bathrooms to the goose-down duvets and pure cotton linens, comfort is of the utmost importance. Browse the well-stocked library, relax beneath the pool gazebos, and enjoy the outstanding spa facilities set within an authentic Balinese garden. Candlelit tables and soft music provide an intimate and romantic atmosphere at the Terrace Restaurant.
