A Place Of Reflection
Set in Nelson Mandela’s primary place of residence in the leafy-green suburb of Houghton, Johannesburg, Sanctuary Mandela includes elements of the home Madiba lived in after he returned from Robben Island, where he hosted the likes of Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey, and which later became the headquarters of the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Sanctuary Mandela is now a re-envisioned residency, a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel with 9 curated rooms and retreat spaces for reflection, healing, and thought-provoking experiences inspired by the life and times of Nelson Mandela.
The hotel is located between Johannesburg CBD and Sandton, allowing for easy travel between these areas and only a 20 minute drive to OR International Airport. Houghton is a predominantly residential area. Horse riding, hiking and bird watching are all popular as well as the excellent coffee shops and restaurants. Time spent at Sanctuary Mandela promises a sense of healing and reflection for all visitors.
