Johannesburg is a booming, happening city and the emphasis is on making money – whether in business or on the streets – and has been since its beginnings when the world’s richest gold fields were discovered in Johannesburg during the 1880s. If you are in Johannesburg for business and are looking for something a little special, and more of an experience on its own when it comes to accommodation, we have the ideal solution for you.
Johannesburg is actually a much played down destination in its own right, and apart from your actual business in Gauteng, we would recommend a day exploring this vibrant city with a good local guide! It’s the sprawl of the leafy northern suburbs – there are over six million trees in Johannesburg – that draws the visitor: buzzing, trendy suburbs like Rosebank, Craighall and Dunkeld Sandton.
Ten Bompas hotel in Dunkeld, is a great spot if you’re kicking off a holiday in South Africa; for a post-safari wind down. Ten Bompas has ten rooms individually decorated by different designers and providing a separate lounge area and luxurious steam bath.
The hotel is a fantastically laid-back place that belies a can-do attitude, serviced by friendly, capable, and smiling staff.
The revamping of the award-winning Ten Bompas boutique hotel’s restaurant was inspired by a painting of Amy Winehouse purchased by the owner in France.
The decor at Winehouse, is chic French-style bistro with dark parquet flooring, beautiful lighting and intimate corner banquettes.
The menu has lots of variety and unfussy classics such as Duck Confit, Vichyssoise and Rabbit Terrine plated with style, and the place regularly plays host to top wine makers and garagistes.
Clico Boutique Hotel
Clico’s handsome Cape Dutch façade has been preserved, but inside, owner Jeanette Schwegmann has added contemporary fizz. Antique Moroccan inlaid-wood tables flank sleek sofas and chairs by local designer Dilly Lills.
The nine rooms all have balconies overlooking the jacaranda-filled grounds and are done in crisp ochre and beige tones; the gleaming white bathrooms are fitted with heating lights (useful in the surprisingly chilly Highveld winters).
Dine in the garden, where items from the French-inspired menu—such as lamb noisettes stuffed with herbs and garlic, smoked salmon on Rösti with crème fraîche, and hazelnut crème brûlée—are so popular that the restaurant has become a hot spot for area residents as well.
