Ten acres of landscaped gardens create a sense of seclusion at this all-suite retreat, set in a quiet, tree-lined Johannesburg suburb. Originally built as an estate for Douw Steyn, one of South Africa’s most successful entrepreneurs, the property maintains a distinctly residential feel, and the gardens are filled with tranquil touches such as a raised deck sky walk and a fish-filled koi pond. The 53 suites are generously appointed, with oversize writing desks (Nelson Mandela finished his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, here) and artwork by acclaimed local artists including realist painter Dean Simon. At the hotel’s state-of-the-art spa, treat yourself to the signature Sound Therapy treatment—a rejuvenating ritual involving Tibetan gongs, bells, and bowls, performed on a heated waterbed.
