AtholPlace Hotel and Villa, upscale relaxation in Johannesburg’s hidden oasis
North of the largest city of South Africa, Johannesburg, stands the cosmopolitan new suburb of Sandton, where finance, investment, and fine living come together beneath a new silver skyline. Within walking distance of this vibrant new community is the hidden gem, the AtholPlace Hotel and Villa. AtholPlace is a true boutique affair, featuring fine luxury accommodations and bespoke services. With an estate located behind a secluded suburban lane within walking distance of downtown Sandton, AtholPlace can provide visitors with a lavish, contemporary place of repose and relaxation, as well as an outstanding base for discovering the incredible sights and sounds of South Africa.
The hotel grounds are beautifully manicured with tropical palms and a stately garden, while the 25-meter outdoor heated pool allows guests to cool off before enjoying a South African barbeque, called braai, at sundown, seated on the couches surrounding the firepit, or boma, on the far side of the estate. The plush furnishings of both the hotel suites and the Private Villa are contemporary, featuring a focus on blond woods and wicker furniture. There are strong accents of the African veldt in many corners of the rooms, while the overall colours of the hotel, white, pale blue, and a variety of tans, emphasize a calming ambience. AtholPlace is glad to welcome families with children, and the hotel will be glad to arrange childcare services, as well as bespoke tours of the cities and parks of the region.
A Resort With Bespoken Charms
The AtholPlace Hotel and Villa consists of nine suites, with the Private Villa having a capacity of six adults and two children. Couples looking for romantic evenings will enjoy the four cozy Deluxe Suites, featuring king-sized beds with duck-down duvets, while the five Superior Suites allow more space for couples with children. All suites enjoy a private balcony with a view of the estate, and all guests are welcome at the pool, the Hotel Bar and Lounge, and the well-furnished library, complete with fireplace. AtholPlace Hotel and Villa will also be happy to create bespoke entertainments and services for you, bringing customized dinners to your private rooms and arranging spa service on bespoke basis, including massage sessions and various beauty treatments.
Evenings Under the African Sky
With the vast grasslands of South Africa so near to the north of Johannesburg, AtholPlace offerS visitors long drives into the great parks of the nation. AtholPlace can easily schedule bushwalks or game drives for interested parties, and bespoken sightseeing tours of the city of Johannesburg, rich in history and cultural events, are also available. After your travels in the area, a return to the seclusion and peace of AtholPlace will bring you to the tables of the AtholPlace Restaurant, where Executive Chef Wynand Van der Watt seasons his dishes with fresh herbs from the hotel garden, and local foods are the focus of the cuisine. Four-course menus are offered and supplemented with the hotel’s extensive wine cellar. Luxurious dining will bring you back to the evening, enjoying cocktails by the fires of the boma, as the night sky soars above your elegant repose in the heart of South Africa.
