Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa
Despite being located in South Africa’s largest city Johannesburg, Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa is set in lush acres of landscaped gardens perfect for a tranquil hideaway, romantic getaway or celebration. With its intimate atmosphere, exceptional service and heartfelt hospitality, it truly feels like a home away from home. The 41 chic, upscale suites are individually decorated in varying themes ranging from Eastern influence to French provincial, each featuring every desired modern amenity. Apart from the African Suite, they are mostly euro-centric in their decorating with high ceilings, elaborate cornicing, tall doors and sumptuous fabrics.
With an array of elegant dining experiences to choose from and a variety of culinary tastes, guests are spoilt for choice. For your special occasion, be it a romantic dinner in the gazebo or an elegant high tea in the gardens, Fairlawns will not disappoint. And look out for their private dining area, ‘Into the Woods’, which offers a memorable experience for up to 12 guests under a chandelier in a recreation of a Birchwood forest environment.
