The ultimate residence in Johannesburg

The Residence offers elegant and inviting accommodation in the historic suburb of Houghton, which is home to many famous residents. This boutique hotel is ideal for the business professional and the leisure traveller alike.

Take a stroll through the manicured gardens, pamper yourself with a treatment at the spa, enjoy a game of tennis or take a dip in one of the swimming pools. Alternatively, visit the nearby gym or play a few rounds at the Houghton Golf Club. Indulge in a champagne breakfast downstairs in the breakfast area. Take in African sunsets and sundowners at The Sky Bar on the top floor, and enjoy stellar views of the surrounding suburbs and Johannesburg’s renowned urban forest.
