Sandton Sun

Sandton City, 5th St. and Alice Lane, Johannesburg, Gauteng, 2146, South Africa

One of the first luxury hotels to open in Sandton, the Sun has a very upmarket designer African feel. Elegant and luxurious, the look draws inspiration from bold earth tones and sculptural baobab trees. Guest rooms are small but classy and superbly laid out, with understated lighting and pared-down furniture. The spa includes eight treatment rooms and offers everything from massages and facials to waxing and manicures.

  • business suites have home-automation technology and video conferencing

  • pricey
