Johannesburg truly has exquisite hotels and beautiful places to stay, and as you know we love exploring in and around our city, and The Peech Boutique Hotel is certainly a gem that we are glad that we discovered. Located in the prestigious suburb of Melrose and close by to Sandton and Rosebank, it is ideally positioned in a suburb with boutiques, cafés and an adjacent park as well as a shopping centre easily and safely accessible. The Peech originally used to be a private family home which was built in...

The land of beautiful beaches, warm weather, sprawling Serengeti plains, the highest mountain in Africa, and of course… Freddie Mercury – Tanzania is a land filled with delights and discoveries second to none. Our home away from home for the four nights of our stay was the picturesque four-star Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel, which is located very centrally in the suburb of Kivukoni, a beautiful old neighbourhood with architecture harking back to its Arabic heritage, which adds to the air of history and adventure that exudes from...

We recently spent a night at the beautiful four star Southern Sun Montecasino hotel, and were blown away by the beauty of this Tsogo Sun Property. Echoing the Italian theme that Montecasino is well known for, the hotel is inspired in it's design by the 15th century Palazzo Corsini villa in Italy’s picturesque mountain region of Gianicolo, and you would be forgiven for thinking you had slipped back in time to an old-world Venetian era. Of course the hotels services and amenities are anything but old world and bullet speed...

We love discovering beautiful gems in our local Sandton and surrounds, and Clico Boutique Hotel is just that. Located on a rather busy road in the bustling suburb of Rosebank, you would be surprised to find that behind the walls of this beautifully appointed hotel, lies an unexpected peace and quiet that is set to restore the soul. Many choose to make Clico their base when in Johannesburg, whether from overseas or visiting from other cities for work, purely for the fact that not only is it really convenient...

In case you had not realised – we love to travel and seeing as we live in such a beautiful country, and a weekend escape requires a mere hour or two in the car, we are all in for exploring more. Our travels have of course led us to the beautiful De Hoek Country Hotel located cosily amongst the Magaliesberg Mountains and only an hour and fifteen minutes away from Johannesburg. Driving through the gate and over the rickety bridge would give you the feeling that you have finally escaped...

We had never considered spending a night at an airport hotel in our own city, but after an amazing evening in the beautifully appointed InterContinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel we have to say that this is certainly something that we will be doing again. The hotel is situated in one of the prime spots at the airport - a mere minute or so's walk away from the arrivals terminal, and boasts the title of South Africa's only luxury airport hotel. And luxury it certainly is. The hotel serves perfect...

Luxury is not just a price tag. It’s about beauty, experiences and moments that you’ll hold onto forever… and at LUX* Belle Mare and LUX* Grand Gaube in Mauritius, you’ll do just that, and more. There are beach resorts and then there’s LUX*. LUX* Belle Mare is situated on the east coast of Mauritius, in Belle Mare, roughly an hour’s drive from the airport. The resort is set on the island’s widest stretch of beach and, in my opinion, home to one of the most beautiful pearly white beaches...
