Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa Luxury Accommodation
The Fairlawns is a very unique, exclusive and up-market sanctuary for today’s traveler, 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.
Re: Piper and Heath Group
Dear John and Anna,
I wanted to send you this letter to express my deep appreciation for the hospitality on the part of you and staff of Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa. Without a doubt, it is one of the loveliest properties not only in Johannesburg but all of South Africa
Julie, Robin, George, Nancy and I felt like royalty and at home. The treatment and attention to our every need by the staff was stellar. Although we were all a bit tired from the long travel, we all agreed that your invitation to dinner was so kind. Most important, the warmth felt by all of us from your gesture is and will be one of the highlights. We all loved hearing about how you developed the hotel and how it has evolved to be one of the best. A testament to your talents!
This is the best place to stay when in JHB!
Wow! What an experience true luxury and the service is the best ever.
It is an experience you should not miss and the event we did there was out of this world!
Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to get everything I needed.
Don’t miss the fabulous place to stay.
I highly recommend it!
The property is magnificent, staff efficient and service/food out of this world. The property has that real old school estate feel with the most magnificent spa I have ever visited. The property is conveniently located with easy access to the Gautrain (airport/Sandton) right in the heart of everything you would need access to. Fairlawns do everything the right way I highly recommend it for someone looking for that oasis feel in the middle of the hustle and bustle of city life. 5* plus - I lOVE this property!
We used the conferencing and banqueting facilities. Without a doubt they are top notch from the decor down to the equipment provided. The food was beautifully presented and quite a gastronomical experience. The staff are incredibly attentive, right down to carry your bags and engaging in pleasantries. The GM stepped in and escorted me to my car and carried my bags. To add to this experience the surrounding gardens and pool area is an open invitation into paradise. Peaceful, tranquil and a beautiful meander through nature.
