A warm boutique hotel, The Residence, is set amidst an abundance of bougainvillea blossoms in the historical suburb of Houghton. With seductive and sophisticated style, seventeen generously proportioned suites feature antique French crystal chandeliers, dramatic velvet drapes and Persian rugs. Spacious balconies open up onto views of the lush garden, sparkling swimming pools and tennis court. Outdoor showers, baths or Jacuzzis lend an extra element of decadence.
Sumptuous champagne breakfasts with an array of delightful delicacies are served in the sunny breakfast area, followed by a relaxing lunch on the Koi bridge and to wind down the evening, experience local fine dining in The Dining Room restaurant. Situated on the top floor, the Sky Spa boasts spectacular views over the Johannesburg skyline. Guests in need of relaxation can reinvigorate the mind, body and soul in the serene spa, a personal time capsule where guests can enjoy traditional spa treatments.
What we love about The Residence
- Kick back with a pre-dinner cocktail in the aptly named Piano Bar while listening to the sounds of the Residence Pianist.
- Indulge in an aromatic Swedish massage in the spa’s beautiful treatment room – it’s built on a wooden deck suspended above the running water, so you relax and unwind to the soft sounds of moving water.
- After a long day of sightseeing or travel, enjoy a special touch of luxury by opting to use your outdoor bath or shower and relax under the African sky as water envelops you
