An experience not to be missed. The 5 star Houghton Hotel offers complete tranquility with
un compromised luxury.

The Houghton Hotel sets the benchmark for luxury hotels in Johannesburg. It oozes quality from
every pore – whether you’re approaching its grand exterior, entering the opulent lobby with its
weaving staircase , lounging at the pool or padding the thick carpets of the corridors.

Service is top notch, without being suffocating. There are two restaurants to choose from, the first
being the Nova Deli ( which even has its own herb garden ), provides an informal and friendly
approach, the staff seem to have perfected the balance here. The restaurant appeals to the walk in
South African public as well as guests staying at the hotel creating the friendly atmosphere that
visitors have become accustomed to experiencing. The second option is the signature fine -dining
Sejour restaurant where patrons can enjoy uninterrupted views of nature while enjoying Chef
Freddie Dias’s playful culinary exploits and exciting global flavours.

Facilities include four swimming pools, a world – class spa , steam room, heated indoor pool ,
state-of-the-art FitBar gym, conference and function facilities and the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus
designed golf course at the Houghton Golf Club.
The Spa offers modern facilities, expert treatments and luxury products for a restorative
escape. Guests are invited to optimise their experience by visiting the spa’s sauna, steam room and
indoor heated pool after their pampering needs have been met. The couples suite includes a
private jacuzzi, there is also a nail beautique and hair salon for those special occasions.

The Houghton Hotel sets the standard in elegance for business and leisure travellers visiting the
city of gold.The art of hospitality has been perfected and they have developed an approach to
luxury that is difficult to duplicate. There is an overall comfortable, laid-back atmosphere in the
common spaces and a warmth to the welcome from the attentive staff.

The beating heart of the hotel, particularly in summer is surely the pool . With its water surface that
looks like a flat sheet of glass so fabulous that you won’t want to leave.The water flows in from a
dramatic height providing a striking visual to the mesmerising pool, guests can lounge by the
poolside, sipping cocktails and soak in the glorious South African sunshine.

Splashes of turquoise throughout the hotel pay homage to the corporate identity of the serene
lifestyle offered emphasising the best destination and living accommodation in South Africa. The 60
room hotel plus 7 penthouses exudes a sense of place with its fresh, modern decor , Nespresso
Coffee machines and flat screen tv’s that clearly appeal to the 21st century traveller.

A lifestyle destination, celebrated for sublime service , and graced by celebrities, dignitaries and jet
setters .Where modern art pieces adorning the walls rub shoulders with bold lighting and
exceptional dining blends with contemporary cocktails there is no better location in the plush
suburbs of leafy Johannesburg whether it be for business or leisure.
