Set in Johannesburg’s affluent neighbourhood of Sandton, Athol Place is a contemporary-chic boutique hotel that provides a peaceful refuge for holidaymakers. Conveniently located close to OR Tambo International Airport and hubbub of Sandton’s many upscale malls and restaurants, guests are never far from the action while still being afforded a brand of peace and serenity which this refined and sophisticated getaway prides itself on.

Sleek interiors are matched in elegance by the hotel’s elegantly furnished exterior where the immaculately maintained garden with its sparkling swimming pool takes centre stage. You are invited to relax around a crackling wood fire at night in the classically appointed library or sip a colourful cocktail in the dappled sunshine on your suite’s balcony. Fine dining inside the grand dining room or out on the terrace is always an occasion as the innovative head chef is eager to satisfy even the most discerning palate. Heady afternoons spent lounging in the garden while harmonious birds fly between the branches of ancient oak trees make it easy to forget that even in these idyllic surroundings, Africa is on your doorstep.
