The Residence

Outside is the new in, amongst lush landscaping and cascading bougainvillea covered terraces. You are now in the heart of Johannesburg’s suburban seat of power – daily retreat to the most recognisable South African names and faces. This is new world glamour and old world charm. This is the Residence, Houghton.

The final word in modern city grandiose, the Residence represents compelling tranquillity in the otherwise fast-paced city of gold (Egoli). This luxury estate is conveniently located to allow access to the city (both Johannesburg central and Sandton) as well as a variety of nearby attractions. Whatever your day may entail, rest assured – you’ll savour your return. Get active in one of our three sparkling pools (one heated) or on the tennis court. Soak up the South African sunshine on the luscious lawns. Play a round of golf on the greens of nearby Houghton golf course.

Inside, the rich interiors of the property’s ample public areas reflect an eclectic mix of modern and classic. French crystal chandeliers and grand pianos add a touch of nostalgia, a plush sense of comfort. This is further amplified in the 17 suites, each of which boast private, outdoor bath and shower, enormous beds and spacious balconies. The attention to detail here is duly noted. End your day surveying the skyline with its typically spectacular sunsets from the Sky Spa or pamper yourself with a relaxing treatment at the Residence Spa. Alternatively, retreat to your suite for a carefully planned turn-down with local treats compliments from this team of boutique hoteliers.
