The hotel

Said to be set in Africa’s richest square mile, The Maslow has a lot to live up to. Luckily it has that winning combination of smart styling, soothing spa treatments, and al fresco swimming to make sure it keeps up with the Joneses. In the popular financial district of Sandton, it’s a favourite with those wanting a relaxed stay in the city – especially with its complimentary shuttle to nearby Sandton City Mall, and its handy proximity to must-see sights like Nelson Mandela Square. When you return from sightseeing around Jo’burg, The Maslow welcomes you back with its sleek yet comfy guest rooms, the relaxed Lacuna Bistro and bar, and stunning views over this modern city from its Africology Spa.

There are many other better options in Sandton. Read less

Our waiter Sibusiso is a star, he was able to demonstrate true costumer principles and even went an extra mile of showing us the private dining area and different menu option on offer. My wife was sold and looking forward to celebrating our wedding anniversary and 40th Birthday at Maslow's Lacuna Bistro. Thank you for the experience, we will definitely recommend Lacuna Bistro to our associates and friends. Read less

Fabulous service and an incredible hotel. I’ve stayed here the last few months and I can see a massive marked difference in the team and the quality of the hotel. I would definitely recommend them for your stay!
