Candice smiles from her soul – shyly, but from her soul, and this passionate, yet soft spoken chef is the brains and drive behind the highly successful Grei Restaurant – located at the prestigious Saxon Hotel in Sandhurst. Keeping in mind that the likes of Oprah Winfrey, and other such Hollywood A-Listers spend their time in our beautiful city here, you should know that everything is nothing short of show stopping, of course. From the moment you step out of the lift (beautifully scented with lemongrass to begin your herbal...

Travel bug aside - we continue to be amazed at the incredible beauty and luxury that exists around our African continent and continuing to explore it will certainly be on our travel list for the next few years. We recently visited the picturesque Sarova Whitesands in Kenya, which is located just North of Mombasa, and Sarova Hotels continue to astound us with their luxury and fine attention to detail that every hotel and resort is well known for. The Sarova Stanley hotel is one of the few five star rated...

One of the best kept secrets in Joburg’s whisky bar category, but we don’t mind letting the secret out, it’s only fair - has to be The Maxim Lounge (affectionately known as Maxim by the locals). Maxim is all about leather, cigars, whisky and polished surfaces and serves as the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink, or a post evening night cap, in a luxurious surrounding. Located next door to the incredibly popular Maximillien restaurant at The Da Vinci Hotel and Suites in Legacy Corner Mall, Sandton, Maxim Lounge is...

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...

In the bustling heart of Sandton, lies the hidden gem that is the Maximillien restaurant. Conveniently located in the da Vinci Hotel, this hot spot is well known by locals and internationals alike for not only its creative and inspired menu, but also for its beautiful, old school New York inspired décor and views out over the hustle and bustle of the Sandton streets below. The man behind the culinary creativity and menu revolution at The Maximillien is none other than Durban born chef, Sylvester Nair – who has...

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...

We just love the beautiful rooftop deck at the iconic Sandton Sun, and are delighted that the San Deck has re-launched just in time for summer cocktail sippers to enjoy the vibes and views of Sandton's beautiful skyline as the sun sets. San Deck is vibrant, stylish, and comfy and offers a number of pretty unique spaces, from the pool area, to the restaurant, to the comfy couches and lounge areas, and a new rooftop garden area which was created through the intricate use of metal lattice screens, foliage...

One of our fave Rosebank hotels, 54 on Bath have taken their fine-dining experience at Level Four restaurant (aptly named as it is on the 4th level of the hotel) to new heights with a fresh new summer inspired menu, thanks to Executive Chef, Matthew Foxon. We love that the team at Level Four give credit where credit is due, and share the names of the individual young chefs who have created the dishes as well. Delish starters on offer include a tasty Seared ‘Yellow Fin’ tuna, fresh raw peas,...
