Luxury is “the state of great comfort and extravagant living”. This definition is embodied throughout the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. This elegant establishment is the epitome of splendor, where your every whim is catered to.
The hotel is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment, with a lavish facelift and, to accompany it, a personality transplant. Unfolding dazzling facilities, including quaffing superior Perrier-Jouet champers at the intimate French champagne bar, beautifully bottled in elegance and finesse this bubbly is befitting a work of art. Discover the ritual of tea drinking at Sugar Cube, and indulge in Fairlawns gastronomy, an epicurean delight, where food and beverage is at the heart of this refined retreat. If you crave relaxation and rejuvenation, languish in the tranquility and serenity of the magnificent Balinese Spa Gardens. Reflect on your inner-self and let your mind drift into quiet in this serene haven. For the suits, a cutting edge conference centre where comfort meets functionality. These iconic changes will result in a fresh, totally revived, new and inviting 5* hospitality experience in the heart of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs.
Discover heartfelt hospitality and elegance in the Manor Bistro lounge with windows opening out onto the gardens, serving daily classic afternoon tea. An ideal spot to dine on light meals, and ogle the cake trolley, inspired by the Ritz in London, this is also fast becoming very popular with events. The al fresco champagne terrace is the perfect setting to sample some of the Cape’s finest wines and bubbles and watch the Highveld sun set behind the trees. For lovers of the grape, the Wine Library will offer ‘personal blending’. Guests will be able to taste wines and blend them on the premises, bottle and label, taking one bottle away with them and the rest being stored in the Wine Library. The objective is to build loyalty, and who can resist their own signature bottle of vino!
