Located in Johannesburg, the financial powerhouse of South Africa, Sun International’s Maslow Hotel is a tranquil oasis right in the heart of Sandton City’s bustling concrete jungle.
The 280-room hotel is a multi-purpose venue that is ideal for travellers wishing to explore South Africa’s richest square mile, as well as for those needing to conduct business in it. It is also a popular venue with locals for a power business lunch, to unwind with colleagues or friends after work, or to host a wedding and other personal celebrations.
The proximity of the hotel to the Gautrain with its fast track to OR Tambo airport makes it ideal for travellers. With its state-of-the-art technology, the 4-star hotel can satisfy every business traveller’s need from the productive Wayfarer business lounge, to physical and virtual conferencing facilities, Wi-Fi and a top end luxury spa to massage away the stresses of the day.
Although The Maslow is located in Africa’s richest business note, the area is an important urban tourist destination as well.
Johannesburg offers many activities for visitors which are all very unique. Where in the world can you travel down a goldmine, visit the apartheid museum, the stock exchange and a lion park, all on one day? And attractions like Vilakazi Street in Soweto are cultural gold – these are unique and authentic manifestations of true South African culture. Or simply hop on a Red Bus for a tour of the sights and sounds of Johannesburg. Similarly, Sandton is also the gateway stopover to attractions such as the Kruger Park or Sun City.
But The Maslow’s unique selling point is its plentiful parking and the fact that that it is the only hotel in Sandton that has a large, lush, natural garden. Guests can step outside into a peaceful green space with established trees, lawn and a beautiful pool deck. Although the hotel is in a suburban environment there is a sense of open space in which visitors can relax – either in the gardens or overlooking them from the pool, or on the Lacuna Bistro and Bar deck.
This green lung makes The Maslow the Central Park of Sandton and enables Sun International to also offer additional activities such as events, conferences, banquets and weddings, and even picnics all of which can be held indoors or on the ample lawn outdoors.
And being the only garden in the area means it is the hotel of choice for birds. The birdlife at dusk, when they return to their nests, is a sight to behold. Thousands of birds fly out every morning and return every evening. It’s quite an experience to sit on the deck having a sundowner and taking in the delights at dusk of the birds returning to their nest to sleep that night.
Not only is the environment very parklike, unlike most urban hotels in the world, guests can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep with the blackout-curtaining.
Equally positive is the recent refurbishment of The Maslow. The hotel now has a modern, trendy look and rooms also cater for every possible executive need from power sockets to recharge cell phones and laptops to facilities for video conferencing calls.
Complimentary high-speed internet access is available throughout the hotel and will make emailing large files a simple matter.
The Maslow is no longer one of the grand old ladies of Johannesburg – it is a modern, hip, cool hotel!
