Fodor's Review

One of the first luxury hotels to open in Sandton, the Sun was updated in 2008 and the public areas have moved away from '80s glam to reflect a designer African feel. Elegant and luxurious, the new look draws inspiration from bold earth tones and sculptural baobab trees. Guest rooms are small but superbly laid out, with understated lighting and pared-down furniture, and have maintained all the functionality expected from a five-star property. The new spa on the mezzanine

level includes eight treatment rooms and offers everything from massages and facials to waxing and manicures.
