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.

Even though the Spa treatment at fairlawns is one of the best in Johannesburg, I would comfortably say that it is not the best service that they offer. That title goes to their kitchen for the quality of food they put out. You go to fairlawns for the Spa, but you stay for the food.

I experienced unprofessionalism and hostility from the hotel staffs. Not inviting and helpful at all! And for the second time I booked the spa treatment with no avail, no one really follows up on guests!
