SANDTON SUN HOTEL RATES: Sandton Sun Hotel Rates

The luxurious Sandton Sun is one of Johannesburg’s finest landmarks. Situated in the heart of the Central Business District of Sandton, this establishment is the epitome of a grand international five-star hotel. Since its early beginnings (some 23 years ago) this property has been known by local taxi drivers, as ‘the red carpet hotel’, and we must admit that the Sandton Sun offers the ultimate in VIP treatment for anyone who passes through our doors.

This renowned hotel has recently undergone a major refurbishment, and is now more glamorous than ever before. However, the basic values that the Sandton Sun was built on continue to be key to the overall philosophy of excellence. These values include friendly, yet superior service, world-class facilities and the ultimate in convenience and creature comforts.

Situated on the hotel's doorstep, you’ll find a number of key attractions including Sandton City, one of the largest shopping centres in the southern hemisphere and the exquisite Nelson Mandela Square – host to a wealth of restaurants, boutiques and cafes. The Sandton Sun is also connected to the world-class Sandton Convention Centre (SCC) and is in close proximity to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

At the Sandton Sun, you can expect superior accommodation as well as a range of executive and business services. On the leisure side, there are two pools, a health club, a brand new spa and excellent restaurants.

The combination of exceptional facilities, personalised service and the finest attention-to-detail are the attributes that have earned the Sandton Sun its reputation as THE ‘red carpet experience’.
