Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa Luxury Accommodation

The Fairlawns is a very unique, exclusive and up-market sanctuary for today’s traveller, be that business or leisure. This well-kept secret is the perfect balance between tranquility and proximity to the thriving business centers of Sandton. Elegant enough to host European royalty, relaxed enough for one visitor to comment “a home away from home, only better”, this establishment is truly a world-class venue.

Originally owned by the Openheimer family, the property was purchased in 1986 and remained the private residence of the current owners, John and Anna Thacker, until the establishment of Fairlawns as a Boutique Hotel in 1998. A forerunner in creating spacious bathrooms, individually themed suites and even the name Boutique, which at the time was not the popular nomenclature it is today, Fairlawns has been at the forefront of a different offering in hospitality.
