For smaller, opulent and exclusive accommodation there are a number of boutique hotels: Fairlawns, Morningside (Sandton) – once one of the opulent homes of the Oppenheimer mining dynasty and converted to a retreat-like boutique hotel with vast luxurious suites; The Saxon, Sandhurst - since being converted from the private residence of an insurance magnate, (Nelson Mandela wrote his biography here) to a stunning exclusive hotel set in tranquil, beautifully landscaped gardens it has developed a reputation as having one of the best kitchens in the country. Ten Bompas, Dunkeld – this 1930’s Johannesburg home has been ingeniously converted to a tiny gem of a place with 10 exclusive suites, offering a great location and a gourmet restaurant.
