Delve into tranquillity in the city

The Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton is a tranquil oasis with the soul of a country estate found in the bustling and up-market suburb of Sandton in Johannesburg. It is an ideal stopover point and base for business travellers needing to be close to surrounding areas, and for tourists who wish to be close to the city’s transport systems, shops and restaurants.

Explore the many cultural insights and historical monuments that Johannesburg has to offer. Meander through galleries, visit the theatre and even an amusement park. Back at the hotel, health-conscious guests can delight themselves in the ground-floor fitness centre, which is stocked with the latest equipment. After the workout, be sure to take a dip in one of two swimming pools, both of which are surrounded by lush and landscaped gardens.

The hotel includes over 300 rooms ranging from standard rooms to two-bedroom suites. Each room is air-conditioned and tastefully furnished in a classic, comfortable style with an en-suite bathroom. Many of the Crown Court suites have the additional luxury of a private spa bath. Dine and drink at the Bull Run Restaurant, Colony Restaurant, Oval Coffee Shop or Lords Bar.
