Overview

Set in Johannesburg’s affluent neighbourhood of Sandton, AtholPlace offers two luxury exclusive-use options that are conveniently located close to OR Tambo International Airport and the hubbub of Sandton’s many upscale malls and restaurants. Although guests are never far from the action, there is still plenty of peace and serenity at this refined and sophisticated city getaway.

Guests can choose between the nine-bedroom house or the four-bedroom villa. Both properties are contemporary in design and provide a luxurious yet comfortable stay. After exploring the nearby attractions in Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square, AtholPlace has a variety of ways to relax and unwind – from lounging in the manicured garden and soaking in the swimming pool to enjoying cocktails from the private balcony while watching one of Johannesburg’s legendary sunsets.

Rooms

Athol House

The elegant and stylish AtholPlace House comprises of the main building and a secondary building a few meters away. The house accommodates 18 guests in nine rooms – of which five are in the main building and four in the secondary building – making it ideal for large families or big groups. The nine en suite rooms are individually designed and are built to maximise guests’ comfort, from the plush king-sized beds and minibar to the 42-inch flat-screen television and air conditioning.

Guests at the house have access to a library, temperature-controlled swimming pool, gym and lush garden space with incredible views of the surrounding nature. There’s also a fully stocked bar from which you can grab a drink to enjoy around the crackling fireplace on cooler evenings.

Atholplace Villa

AtholPlace Villa is every bit as luxurious and stylish as the house. It combines the best aspects of a 5-star hotel stay with that of a tranquil, secluded hideaway. Catering for eight guests in four spacious rooms, the villa is perfect for small families and groups who want a space to themselves but still be near the action in Sandton.

The villa strikes the perfect balance between homely warmth and extravagant luxury. You’ll have all the comforts of home while enjoying being waited on hand-and-foot by your personal butler and private chef. Guests will also enjoy a firepit boma, fireplace, temperature-controlled swimming pool, and lush garden space with incredible views of the verdant suburbs of Johannesburg.

Facilities

Guests have either the house or villa all to themselves. Each property comes fitted with its own kitchen, dining room and living spaces. The manicured garden is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or catch up on a good book. Then move down to the pool for a dip and some afternoon tanning. End your days with a movie in the media room or reflect on your day in South Africa’s most vibrant city around the fireplace.

Dining

AtholPlace aims to please, so mealtimes are tailored around your schedule and can be taken indoors or out in the garden. Both the house and villa come with a private chef who will prepare anything your heart desires with only freshest ingredients. And if you’re in the mood to go out to eat, Sandton’s finest restaurants are just a short drive away.
