The Residence

Explore South Africa

A luxury boutique hotel in Johannesburg, The Residence is set in carefully manicured gardens and offers a quiet retreat from which to explore the city. Found in the pleasant suburb of Houghton, the area is prosperous and was once home to former president Nelson Mandela. Guests will find the warm, friendly staff and high standards of accommodation ensure a comfortable stay.

The air-conditioned suites found at the hotel are large and seductively elegant. Their sophisticated sense of style is most inviting with Persian rugs, crisp Egyptian cotton and crystal chandeliers completing a look of plush refinement. Look out from your private balcony over the gardens, pool or tennis courts and enjoy the sunshine. For slightly more luxurious options the Penthouse Suite and the Madiba Suite are both on offer. from the Penthouse enjoy a large skylight over the bed and a roof garden with a Jacuzzi and from the Madiba expect to find your own champagne and wine cellar.

For complete relaxation the Residence Spa is the perfect choice. Unwind with traditional spa therapies in one of two treatment rooms and indulge in time well spent in the sauna and steam room. Guests can also expect to find two stunning lounges, a piano bar and two swimming pools.

How to get to The Residence
