The Maslow: Award-Winning Solutions


Sun International’s luxurious Maslow Hotel in the beating business heart of Sandton has just celebrated its first anniversary. It’s been a year of achievements, with The Maslow rewarded for catering to the discerning business traveller and providing exciting offerings for weddings and fine dining.

With a 4-star grading awarded by South Africa’s Tourism Grading Council, The Maslow provides a place to do business away from home, along with a comprehensive conferencing solution, thanks to 12 conference rooms available for hire. The hotel also offers the flexibility of full-day or half-day conferencing, allowing guests to choose a tailor-made package that best suits their needs.

At The Maslow, we know that experience is everything, and that the best facilities go hand-in-hand with excellent service. For this reason, all our butlers go through extensive training to ensure that from the moment you arrive until you leave, you receive the highest quality of service from committed, motivated staff.

As a business-centric hotel in the Sun International portfolio, The Maslow offers its guests an entirely new class of hotel – one that takes cognisance of the fact that work and life need to be balanced. By offering the best in conferencing, luxury accommodation and other creature comforts, The Maslow prides itself on providing a full package for its guests.

The name of the hotel is inspired by world-renowned psychologist Abraham Maslow, famous for his ‘Hierarchy of Needs’ theory. These needs – both basic and sophisticated/complex – are what The Maslow aims to meet when accommodating guests. This is the way we choose to understand our guests, and everything at The Maslow has been crafted to do just this.

The hotel further specialises in customising its services and tailoring its offering. For example, remembering what kind of pillows a returning guest prefers, and providing world-class technology such as complimentary access to uncapped high-speed Internet for the duration of a guest’s stay. The recently-launched Maslow app also provides guests and visitors with quick access to all hotel facilities on their mobile devices. 

In-transit guests can experience home-away-from-home comforts in the unique Wayfarer Lounge, which creates a space for day guests to relax in luxury, take a refreshing shower on arrival or departure, in plush surroundings.

At The Maslow we have not forgotten that food is an important aspect of keeping business meetings and personal occasions flowing smoothly, and the Lacuna Bistro and Bar is a sophisticated urban bistro that is able to do just this. The Lacuna is proud to have one of its cocktails recently featured on the City Press list of the country’s 10 best cocktails, and the bar as a whole has been voted as one of the top 24 cocktail bars in South Africa.

It’s not just our cocktails that are award-winning – a World Luxury Spa Award and a Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Award for 2013 recently went to our Africology Spa. The spa is the ideal place to relax after a day’s work, and offers a range of treatments, from oxygen therapy through to different types of massages. Because of its popularity with business guests, most treatments focus on stress-relieving and balancing, giving you the energy to do a little more.

From top-to-toe, The Maslow offers unexpected delights and areas where guests can relax. One of these is the rooftop garden where herbs are grown organically in the most beautiful of settings. The Potager garden is the latest project of Lacuna Bistro chef Dallas Orr. Chef Orr is passionate about using the best, freshest and most sustainable organic ingredients, and growing our own herbs was a natural extension of the holistic approach we take at the hotel.

Designed to delight the senses of guests in the bustle of the vibrant Sandton business district, this is just another way we seek to make sure the hotel’s customers are looked after in every way. It is a real treat for urban guests, high above the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg’s economic hub.

Of course, life isn’t all about business. Many couples have tied the knot within the beautiful spaces created by The Maslow. Our staff will ensure that your wedding is the perfect experience it should be, with world class service. The Maslow’s unique convenience of being situated so near to the Gautrain makes guests flying in for your wedding a hassle-free experience.

Experienced hotel staff will make sure that your every wish is catered for, while you take advantage of being pampered at our spa or enjoy time with your friends and family. With gorgeous gardens and luxury all around you, The Maslow provides a blank canvas upon which to paint your dreams.

“Business as usual” really is a thing of the past at The Maslow. Take a step into the future of corporate and personal events by ensuring that The Maslow is your chosen venue.
