A 60 second guide to hotels in Sandton and available accommodation options.

More Info
									Sandton
Housing the JSE, the largest stock exchange in Africa, and a host of corporate head quarters,
financial institutions and investment banks, Sandton is one of the most important financial and
business centres in Sub-Saharan Africa and is situated to the north of the Johannesburg
Metropole.

The Wall Street of South Africa
Since the first democratic elections in 1994,
Sandton has become one of the wealthiest areas in
the country and carries the reputation of being the
richest square mile on the continent.
With land at a premium, development has been
forced upwards, creating a new skyline of imposing
glass, chrome and stainless steel buildings - the
African equivalent of the skyscrapers of New York!
Apart from its strong business connections,
Sandton is also a popular convention destination
with delegates travelling from far and wide to the
glittering Sandton Convention Centre, the successful host of the Miss World pageant in 2008
and a venue rated as one of the largest in Africa.

A major African retail hub
It is also one of the most significant retail hubs in Johannesburg, and boasts Sandton City as
one of its main attractions, a retail destination that ranks amongst the largest shopping
centres in Africa!

With all these assets, Sandton has become the default centre for business tourism in
Johannesburg and there are a superb variety of 5-star hotels, opulent guest lodges, luxury bed
& breakfasts and other top accommodation in Sandton to prove the point.
Attractions
Formerly a quiet, secluded suburb characterised by small holdings presided over by the ‘mink
and manure’ set, Sandton is now a hive of activity offering a wide variety of attractions.

                                      The magnificent South African Lipizzaners, pure white
                                      stallions trained to perform aerial antics, are based near
                                      Sandton in Kyalami, which is also home to the Kyalami
                                      Race Track, the venue of the annual South African Grand
                                      Prix until it was discontinued in 1993 and, today, a
                                      popular destination for motor sports enthusiasts.

                                      Montecasino, the exclusive leisure and casino complex,
                                      is yet another major draw card in Sandton; so too is the
                                      6-metre high bronze statue of Nelson Mandela which
                                      presides over Nelson Mandela Square!
Restaurants, galleries, markets, a library and a 200-seat theatre all ensure visitors to Sandton
are well entertained. Those more intent on a golf holiday in South Africa can choose from a
number of challenging golf courses located in neighbouring areas.
