Johannesburg, the largest city in South Africa, is a city of contrasts. From bustling Soweto to upmarket Sandton, there is lots to do and see at any time of the day or night.

Known as “Africa’s richest square mile”, Sandton is a cosmopolitan melting pot of global trades, cultures and trends. If you are looking for a stylish place to stay, we recommend Sun International's business hotel - The Maslow. Featuring state-of-the-art facilities and complimentary shuttle service to one of Africa's biggest shopping centres, Sandton City, this four star hotel is a perfect destination for your next trip!


"The perfect place to go to escape the hustle of the office, the Maslow is a haven with its beautiful gardens, idyllic water features, crisp blue pool and tranquil terraces." - suninternational.com

BEAUTY & WELLNESS

The Maslow offers a variety of recreational facilities that can help you relax and rejuvenate after a long day of work and business meetings (or shopping at the nearby Sandton City!).

Large outdoor swimming pool where you can enjoy a drink or snack from The Lacuna Bar, fully equipped fitness centre with complimentary fruit and water, and trendy Africology Spa where you can take care of both your body and mind - they all make The Maslow an excellent oasis in the heart of the city, a place you want to go back to...

Africology Spa uses carefully selected pure and natural ingredients and combines them with the wisdom of traditional healers. High quality therapeutic products and treatments are created especially for business travellers and will help you to re-balance, relax, and improve the way you look.

A great spa massage can undo accumulated tensions, calm down the body and mind, and renew your energy. It also improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells, and stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body's waste products.

Africology Spa is open for both hotel guests and non-residents. Highly recommended!


The Maslow Journey

"A journey into the self, starts with the realization and acknowledgment of the bodies expression during moments of stress. Stress a sign from the higher mind to remind us to take time out, let fo and regroup once again. It is in that space, of nothingness, that we are able to hear the voices of our inner being. With this in mind, we have created a safe environment for you to let go. Your journey is bespoke, as your therapist will adapt her therapeutic approach accordingly." - Africology Spa
