Don’t feel silly if, while pulling up to the Palazzo Hotel in Fourways, you mistake…

Just when we thought that experience couldn’t get any more exclusive and luxurious, they proved us wrong – the hotel has just completed a soft refurbishment and now boasts a brand-new look and feel!
So what can you look forward to? There’s a new couple’s treatment room in the spa, which previously had only one treatment room for couples. Each room is special, providing guests with an open area option or a dark cosy enclosed option. In other words, you can now choose from two very different experiences.

The deck around the heated pool has been expanded and new tables and chairs have been added, so guests can enjoy a long, lazy lunch around the pool area (don’t you think it’s just the perfect spot for a few afternoon G&Ts?). What’s even more exciting is that this space will also be used to hold small gatherings for afternoon gin tastings and high teas.
The gym has also been relocated to the second floor and now overlooks one of the hotel’s pools, providing guests with the best possible treadmill views. Plus, the gym offering has been expanded with new cardio equipment and weights for all the fitness addicts.
