At Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, one is immediately overtaken by a sense of the pastoral. Set on five rolling acres in the upscale suburb of Morningside Manor, this former equestrian estate is surrounded by mature trees that keep city sounds out while sheltering numerous species of birds. The 41 individually appointed suites are palatial in size, with garden views and in-room bars; Villa and Courtyard Suites feature working fireplaces. Grab a tome from the library and lounge by the pool; better still, enjoy a Hot Stone Massage at the spa. Amuse Bouche Food and Wine restaurant is one of Sandton’s finest.null
