Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa | Johannesburg
Set among lush acres of landscaped gardens you'll find Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, an urban sanctuary right in the heart of Johannesburg.
With close attention to detail and exceptional service, Fairlawns creates an intimate atmosphere where some of the globe’s most vibrant personalities converge. The chic, upscale suites are individually decorated in varying themes ranging from Eastern influence to French provincial, each featuring every desired modern amenity. The hotel also caters to a variety of culinary tastes with an array of elegant dining experiences to choose from.
Located in Johannesburg - South Africa’s largest city and gateway to the rest of Africa - Fairlawns is situated just 6 km from central Sandton, and 20 km from the Johannesburg city centre to offer the upmarket traveller a delicate mix of luxury and convenience. Established in 1997, Fairlawns, or “FBH” as it’s come to be affectionately known by Managing Director, Michael Kewley, is a property proud in heritage and character. Previously a luxury private residence, it is only fitting that the property has transformed “herself” into the stylish hotel, with an air of eclectic sophistication, that Fairlawns is today.
These 20 suites are the latest addition to the hotel with two interleading rooms. Again, in true Fairlawns style, each room is individually decorated, echoing the original ideas of the Courtyard and Villa suites, yet with a modern contemporary twist. The building process and day to day energy preservation was a key factor considered in the building of this new wing of the hotel.
The public area on both levels creates a cosy atmosphere with lounges and large sandstone fireplaces. A lift provides easy access to the second level, and the environment is wheelchair friendly.
These 12 newly refurbished Courtyard Suites are so called as the U shape of the Palladian buildings form an elegant courtyard graced by a formal garden. These Suites are all individually decorated, 60sqm suites with beautiful hand-painted techniques, high corniced ceilings, sumptuous fabrics and custom made classical furniture. The spacious bathrooms are fully equipped with granite vanities, large separate showers and baths. Working fireplaces enhance the romanticism of the suites.
Unlike the Courtyard Suites, the 84sqm Villa Suites relate to some aspects of South African history and honour such distinguished men and women as Emily Hobhouse, Jan Smuts, Nelson Mandela, Harry Oppenheimer and Mahatma Gandhi.
Three of the suites have balconies, the others open onto an oak-shaded terrace. Some have guest cloakrooms, all but one have separate lounges, and all are equipped with double basins, bidets, separate showers and jet baths, towel warmers, as well as under-tile floor heating in the bathrooms and all with working fireplaces.
Named for its positioning in the treetop canopy, this two bedroom family suite is the latest addition to the Fairlawns offering. With its state of the art kitchen, lounge and dining room, this suite is ideally suited to longer family stays.
Previously known as the Presidential Suite, this elegant 240m2 residence comprising 3 bedrooms, a study, a kitchenette, guest cloakroom, dining room and lounge, as well as a separate private entrance. The main bedroom boasts a huge bathroom with a 1.8m diameter jet bath, steam shower, separate toilet and bidet, large walk in closet. There is a balcony overlooking the gardens and pool as well as a juliett balcony in the second bedroom. Ideal for families or dignitaries travelling with staff or wishing to entertain privately.
Previously known as Maison de Ville, this private villa residence is one of the most beautiful, romantic and exclusive private hotel villas in Johannesburg.
Historical touches, fine art collection, Persian carpets and moulded fireplaces set the mood with glass doorways opening from the three suites onto the private gardens, heated swimming pool, alfresco dining room and lounge, the perfect setting to enjoy the sunsets and fine Johannesburg climate .
With all the luxuries and services of the hotel this magnificent private villa, your home away from home, once you have checked in you will not want to check out.
