Fairlawns is a 5 star hotel, nestled in the Morningside suburb of Johannnesburg north, this is a getaway from the hustle and bustle of traffic, it’s located in a tranquil setting among the lush landscape of gardens.

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted, with refeshments and a refresher towel. I was in awe of the decor!

Our magical getaway was about to begin with a full site visit of the property, the most exciting part was viewing our room in the courtyard. With no idea of what to expect this was an amazing room.


A welcome gift awaited us on the centre table, a bottle of bubbly.
