Sandton, South Africa – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The Maslow Hotel, Sun International’s new business residence, is set to open on January 7 following a $28 million refurbishment of the luxury hotelier’s former South African residence, The Grayston.
Situated in the heart of Sandton’s business district—home to top investment banks, financial institutions, the Gautrain station, and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange—The Maslow Hotel offers some of the best corporate facilities in Sandton, including complimentary high speed internet access throughout the hotel, 13 meeting rooms, conference centre with a multi divisible ballroom and auditorium, techno gym and the unique Wayfarer Lounge.
The contemporary design and urban atmosphere of the public areas, guest rooms and services at The Maslow Hotel are inspired by Sandton’s own business culture and, as Sun Internaitonal’s U.S. sales and marketing rep Lorenzo Giani says, “has been especially tailored to answer the needs of business travelers, and we believe visitors will appreciate the efforts we have put into providing perfect service.”
In the lobby is the Wayfarer Lounge, a business class type lounge, which has been designed to enable guests to be productive while waiting to check in or before departure to the airport, while The Lacuna Bistro and Bar features an urban bistro concept and international cuisine. The bistro menu boasts Tapas, Sandwiches, Tarts, Salads and Pasta dishes, as well as a lengthy whiskey menu and beer on tap and is also available in the Wayfarer Lounge.
With business comes the need to relax, however, and The Maslow Hotel answers this call with one of Sun International’s first Africology Spas. Africology is an authentic skincare brand focused on creating results driven experiences for business travelers. “We will provide a special range of massage treatments, facials, skin adoration wraps and scrubs plus”, said Renchia Droganis, founder of Africology. “We will also offer new treatments particularly for busy business travelers that treat the endocrine system, supplement melatonin and relieve aches and pains associated with long haul flights.”
The Maslow Hotel, Sun International’s new business hotel in Sandton has 281-guest rooms; 239 luxury rooms, six family apartments with two interleading rooms, four junior suites, 14 luxury suites with balconies, five executive suites with separate bedroom and living room and seven accessible rooms. A lot of numbers, indeed, but their sum is a perfect stay for everyone
