Home away from home

After a brief trip on the Gautrain from OR Tambo Airport and a short drive from Sandton Station, I effortlessly arrived at the Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre in Fourways, Johannesburg, to review this hotel and its four-star facilities.

‘In the upmarket suburb of Fourways, just north of the fast-paced business world of Sandton, the four-star Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre is a compelling blend of business-like convenience and efficiency with a warm, relaxing country atmosphere.’ This is what the Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre’s brochure says, and I couldn’t agree more. Ideally situated near all major highways, business centres, quick travel links to OR Tambo International Airport and 15km from Lanseria Airport, the Indaba Hotel is perfectly located for both business and leisure. Designed in keeping with the country-style character of the hotel, each of the 258 en-suite, air conditioned bedrooms offer luxurious accommodation with modern facilities. Guests will find all their needs met with Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour room service, a tea/coffee station, safes and hairdryers in each room. With two restaurants on the 17-hectare property there is no need to leave the comfort of the hotel to enjoy world-class cuisine. The 300-seater Chief’s Boma Restaurant, where I enjoyed dinner and soaked up the outstanding African hospitality, caters for all tastes with over 120 African-inspired dishes ranging from North African Moroccan cuisine to Koeksisters and Melktert from the Cape. The Shisa Nyama grill boasts a variety of game meats that ensures everyone is guaranteed to find a favourite. This open-air restaurant is also a fabulous option for corporate and private functions, and sundowners on the deck overlooking the dam. Breakfast is an equally lavish affair and a hearty start to the day at the Indaba Hotel. A full South African breakfast buffet is served daily between 06:30 and 10:30 at the Epsom Terrace Restaurant. The same restaurant also boasts an evening grill menu and a highly-popular traditional carvery lunch and live music on Sundays. As South Africa’s second largest conferencing and accommodation venue, the Indaba Hotel is suitably equipped for wide-ranging conferencing requirements across 24 dedicated venue options and offers state-ofthe- art equipment and AV equipment specialists on site. And, for the ultimate pamper, the Mowana Spa and Wellness Sanctuary, set in the hotel’s tranquil bushveld gardens, exceeds expectations for those wanting to quietly relax and unwind. Corporate packages are also popular and well catered for. Mowana Spa’s commitment to service excellence and staff empowerment through training and mentoring ensures that your needs are met and your expectations exceeded as you enjoy a Day of African Rejuvenation with the Mowana Makoya Journey or indulge your senses with the Mowana Time-Out Pamper. Additionally, Mowana on the Move brings ‘wellness to you’ by incorporating relaxing massage techniques into shorter time periods in the comfort of your office environment. The spa’s trained therapists set up a Mowana Relaxation Zone in an area of your choice and offer mini massages including head, neck and shoulder, foot and hand massages to target work stressed muscles. Mowana on the Move means that wellness and relaxation is accessible to everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre, and was impressed with the excellent service during my visit. The attention to detail was faultless, the staff were friendly and helpful and, although there were a number of conferences on the go and numerous guests at the spa and hotel, I wanted for nothing. The Indaba Hotel really did feel like home away from home. For more information, visit www.indabahotel.co.za
