Fairlawns Boutique Hotel and Spa

Fairlawns Boutique Hotel and Spa, boasts forty-one exquisitely designed units. The five-star hotel was recently crowned the ‘Best Luxury Boutique Hotel’ in South Africa by the World Luxury Hotel Awards, a well-deserved accolade indeed!


Previously a luxury private residence belonging to the Oppenheimers, this verdant retreat is situated in the tranquil suburb of Morningside Manor in Sandton, and is a mere five km from Sandton City. The estate is spread out over almost six sprawling acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and recently went through a massive revamp. The rooms are situated in Palladian blocks with stately names, like the Grand Chateaux, the Courtyard Villas and the Courtyard Suites.


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.

The Fairlawns Spa and the restaurant are very popular with day visitors too so I would advise you to book early. High teas are served in the beautifully eclectic public areas, which are reminiscent of English country houses.


Conferences and weddings are also hosted at the hotel. They host monthly lawn picnics, with the undulating fair lawns always beautifully adorned.
The hotel also offers complimentary value-added service like transfers in the Sandton area, car-washes, shoe-shining and pressing.


This your invitation to consider Fairlawns Boutique Hotel and Spa your home away from home, where exceptional service and heartfelt hospitality can be soaked up like the African sun. It’s definitely my favorite choice! Look forward to sharing more on my favorite hotel destinations with all of you.


Much Love,
