  • Northern Suburbs

    You’ll find the majority of the ultra-luxurious options in Joburg’s northern suburbs, including Sandton, Randburg and Bryanston. The Four Seasons Hotel: The Westcliff is a great example close to most of the city’s main attractions and offers two heated swimming pools and an onsite spa. African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel is perfectly positioned for travellers looking to dive head-first into lavish Joburg living, stationed right inside the uber-trendy Melrose Arch shopping precinct.  With a restaurant, free private parking, a shared lounge, an outdoor pool and a manicured garden, Highgrove Guesthouse in Sandton is a lovely 4-star option if you’d prefer something smaller, simpler and more intimate. If staying in the eastern parts of Joburg, Bedfordview Boutique Lodge comes highly recommended and is located in walking distance from Eastgate Shopping Centre.  Finally, how about barefoot luxury at its best? It’s always a good time to make your way to a restful haven on Joburg’s outskirts to experience “glamping” (glamorous camping).
