The elegant Fairlawns Hotel & Spa is a boutique five star hotel in the prestigious Morningside area of northern Johannesburg. This award-winning boutique hotel has 40 rooms and suites all set in lovely gardens which exude a serene ambience with huge mature trees and prolific birdlife.

The external architecture is Palladian, but there are a variety of styles in the bedrooms to suit every taste. Decorated with impeccable style, each spacious bedroom has a generous en suite marble bathroom and offers serenity, luxury and privacy.


There are 12 courtyard suites, 6 Villas suites, 20 Grand Chateau suites and a palatial three bedroom presidential villa.

The euro-centric courtyard suites have a quiet courtyard location, open plan bedroom and lounge. Features include high ceilings, long silk drapes framing the sash windows, beautiful garden views, opulent fabrics, fireplaces, and romantic four poster beds in some rooms.

In contrast the Villa suites relate to some aspects of South African history and honour such distinguished men and women as Emily Hobhouse, Jan Smuts, Nelson Mandela, Harry Oppenheimer and Mahatma Gandhi. They have a main bedroom with spacious en suite bathroom including a Jacuzzi bath, a separate lounge with fireplace and large working desk as well as air-conditioning, heating and stunning views of the gardens. Those on the second floor have balconies.

The 20 Grand Chateau suites are the newest addition and include 4 family interleading rooms. Again in true Fairlawns style, each room is individually decorated yet with a modern contemporary twist.

Grand Chateau Suite

These 20 suites are the latest addition to the hotel with 2 interleading rooms. Again in true Fairlawns style, each room is individually decorated, echoing the original ideas of the Courtyard and Villa suites, yet with a modern contemporary twist. The building process and day to day energy preservation was a key factor considered in the building of this new wing of the hotel.

The public area on both levels creates a cozy atmosphere with lounges and large sandstone fireplaces. A lift provides easy access to the second level and the environment is wheelchair friendly.

The spacious bathrooms are fully equipped with granite vanities, large separate showers and baths. Working fireplaces enhance the romanticism of the suites.
