The Oasis Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Rivonia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2017

My original motivation for choosing Oasis (in a sea of choices) was location and value for money. Turned out I was spot on on location - close to Sandton CBD and expressway for further afield appointments. My value for expectation money was way off - it was way better than I had thought possible. Owners close involvement gives a soft touch of excellence and quality in just about anything you can think of. Keep it up guys so I can enjoy many happy returns!!!

Room Tip: Upstairs is best

I have stayed at the Oasis on various occasions and it really is a hidden gem that I am so grateful to have come across. When you step inside you feel like you have "come home" and into a real life story book. Every single detail has been considered with such care that you want for nothing, they have literally catered for every possible need. The warmth and beauty of the home and gardens deserves its name "Oasis". The family and their willingness to always go the extra mile to do everything to assist and accommodate you is incredible. The rooms are luxurious and welcoming as is the entire house and I would highly recommend the Oasis to all you wont regret it!

I cannot rave about this gem more. Picking a hotel in Johannesburg can be overwhelming due to the spread, but the family who runs this place makes you feel right at home! It feels like you are staying at your favorite Aunt’s Estate. It decor has a lot of personality and charm, and the family is incredibly hospitable from the complimentary brandy in your room, honor system for drinks at the bar, various pillows of different consistency to choose from the pantry, to the great spreads of food at meal time or complimentary snacks to treat yourself between meals. We had just arrived from LA that day and didn’t feel like going out for food and the home cooked dinner was incredible! I would stay here again and again.

We stayed here for one night and couldn't have had a better experience! The staff is so friendly and the environment makes you feel as though you are staying in your home away from home - whether it be the brandy in your room for an evening night cap to Samantha the sweet Dalmatian on site. The room was just lovely, the food was great and reasonably priced and the outside pool / area makes me want to return when the weather is warmer. Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: All the rooms may have them, but be sure to request a room with a balcony!

Some hotels have great rooms, some have stand-out food and others genuinely friendly staff. Some are truly beautiful, with lush gardens or richly decorated rooms. But it is truly rare to find a place with all of these and more, Oasis is one of these places - the complete package.

I could not recommend a hotel in the Sandton area more highly than Oasis. It is a great choice for a romantic night away from home for a couple or a business trip for an individual or a team.

Great work Oasis! We will see you again.

Room Tip: Don't think you can go wrong here, all the rooms seemed great
