New Johannesburg hotel


2018 will see Johannesburg receive an addition to its hotel landscape, and not in the heavily over-traded area of Sandton.

The Houghton is a 5-star property expected to open in early-2018 and will offer hotel rooms as well as high-end executive apartments, some of which are already completed and on offer.

Both the hotel and apartments overlook the Jack Nicklaus-design Houghton golf course, with the hotel set to feature three room sizes, ranging in size from 50 to 145 square metres.

Additional features will be a fine dining restaurant, deli and juice bar, Skye Bar, spa, jacuzzi, gym and pilates centre, walking and jogging track, pool and pool deck, conference facilities, meeting rooms, a business centre, concierge and butler services, and 24-hour security.

The Houghton is situated in the suburb of Houghton, roughly midway between Sandton and the Johannesburg CBD.

The hotel is approximately 18 kilometres from O.R. Tambo International Airport.
