Your home away FROM HOME

Move! - - CHILLZONE - By Nonzwakazi Cekete

The hus­tle and bus­tle of the city and the de­mands of life can some­times get a bit stress­ful. Peo­ple al­ways need a break but have a per­cep­tion that you have to get out of your city to do this or that a get­away will break the bank. That isn’t nec­es­sar­ily true! You can treat your­self and a friend, your stokvel mem­bers, your man or kids to a get­away in one of Jozi’s gems, Park Inn Sand­ton.

THE HO­TEL

This beau­ti­fully de­signed and tran­quil ho­tel sit­u­ated at the heart of Africa’s rich­est square mile is af­ford­able and ac­ces­si­ble by road, train or air. To ex­pe­ri­ence the warmth of the staff and the lux­u­ri­ous rooms, you don’t need to have won the jack­pot but with proper plan­ning, you can af­ford this ex­pe­ri­ence that will leave you feel­ing like a mil­lion bucks.

The dé­cor in the 273 ho­tel rooms is ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful and styled with wall­pa­per of the Joburg sky­line, that re­minds you that you are in the city of gold. The rooms have a TV with pre­mium chan­nels so you can en­joy your favourite shows away from home. Guests can also en­joy free Wi-Fi. You can choose a stan­dard room, busi­ness friendly room or a ju­nior suite de­pend­ing on what you can af­ford.

THE FOOD

Ho­tel food can some­times be pre­dictable and plain old bor­ing but the chef at the Park Inn Sand­ton restau­rant, RGB Bar and Grill, Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Jonathan Mor­neo al­ways cre­ates an un­for­gat­table meal. There is some­thing for ev­ery­one but meat lovers are es­pe­cially spoilt for choice and the por­tions cer­tainly pro­vide value for money. Park Inn Sand­ton makes a break­fast fit for a king, with a range of op­tions to choose from, in­clud­ing a lighter op­tion or the full English break­fast.

AC­TIV­I­TIES TO DO

It is easy to be car­ried away with Chef Jonathan's ex­quis­ite cui­sine but for­tu­nately there is a gym on the third floor of the ho­tel, where you can burn off those calo­ries. There is a pool where you can en­joy a swim or a re­lax­ing time by the pool­side while sip­ping cock­tails from the lobby bar. If you love shop­ping, the ho­tel is sit­u­ated close to Sand­ton City and Nel­son Man­dela Square. Park Inn Sand­ton truly is a hid­den gem in the city of gold.
