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. 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. 

 

Location

The dazzling Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa is set within an exclusive estate in Johannesburg's premier suburb of Morningside. As its name suggests, the property is surrounded by undulating green lawns of perfectly manicured grass, enhanced by exquisite lush gardens. Previously a private residence, this all-suite hotel has been meticulously designed to impress and will meet even the most sophisticated guest's expectations. Although it's location is not within walking distance from local amenities, a short drive will take you to the heart of Sandton's business hub. With a distinct air of exclusivity that encloses the serene and secluded premises, Fairlawns is the perfect base for globetrotters that demand unrivaled privacy.

Hotel Facilities

My favourite part of Fairlawns was the Balinese inspired spa - an almost mysterious oasis of calm, flanked by tall tropical plants and tranquil water features. Guests can enjoy a treatment indoors or in the spa gardens where private massage huts hide amongst the thick foliage. I managed to squeeze in a quick back and shoulder massage, which left me energized and de-stressed. To ensure maximum respite, I recommend booking in advance as the spa is very popular with locals (I don't blame them). The hotel's gym forms part of its wellness area and is huge by boutique standards - sporting a wide range of training equipment for cardio, strength and body workouts. Of course there is also the large main pool, staged within the magnificent gardens, where you can sip cocktails whilst soaking up the sun or relax on one of the plush covered daybeds.

Room

There are just over 40 suites, housed in 3 separate chateau-like buildings which are discretetly positioned around the expansive grounds. I had the pleasure of staying in their fabulous two bedroom pool villa, also known as the Maison de Ville. This spectacular residence has its own gorgeous garden featuring a huge sparkling azure pool bound by calming curtained cabanas. Despite its enormity, which includes a full gourmet kitchen (a private chef can be arranged upon request), personal study, huge dressing rooms and working fireplaces, the space is warm and welcoming. Beautiful indigenous artwork, premier quality finishes and lavish furnishings complete the hotel's showpiece quarters - a grand retreat fit for royalty.

Service

From the moment I arrived at Fairlawns I noticed their individual yet professional manner of interacting with guests. I was immediately welcomed by a friendly porter who escorted me to the hotel's eclectic reception area, where a refreshing towel and cool glass of cranberry juice awaited. After being courteously checked in, a friendly manager showed me to my villa and presented a brief tour of the immaculate space. Throughout my stay the staff's helpful demeanor and genuine passion was obvious, which in turn forged a warm and inconspicuous sense of hospitality.

My thoughts

This unique hotel epitomizes classic boutique style with inimitable attention to detail. Its secluded surroundings, abundant onsite facilities and sincere service culture ensures a rare guest experience which surpasses convention. An unashamed haven for the avant-garde locals and elite jet set, Fairlawns has pioneered an opulent yet bona fide approach to luxury which completely agrees with the seasoned leisure or business traveller.

Health

Spas are no longer the domain of the spoilt and pampered. In the frenetic pace of urban life we ignore looking after our bodies, mental equilibrium and spiritual well-being at our peril.

We need to occasionally relax, empty our minds and soothe our souls in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. For those of us who cannot find the time or means to visit tropical spas, TheSpa @ The Fairlawns, right in the heart of Sandton, seeks to recreate the principles of holistic healing in a pampering environment.The newly built Balinese Spa Garden, with its hydrotherapy treatments, relaxation and dining pavilions and outdoor massage areas is as close as one is going to get this side of the Indian Ocean to what we all instinctively crave - time-out to renew our batteries, get our skins to glow and our energies to flow.
