Every week we also take our office on the move to spend the day working at a new Joburg hotel. We launched our 'roaming office' project in February 2021 as an opportunity to test drive new hotel offerings, reconnect with our tourism and hospitality partners and get a look at how life is changing at Joburg's leading hotels after lockdown. You can catch up on our weekly 'roaming office' project by following our Instagram page and see which hotels we've been working from this month on our blog.
Here's a look at the latest new hotel openings and offers launched in Joburg this May.
The Mint Hotel group is expanding
The Mint Hotel opened their first Joburg hotel, Mint Hotel on 84 Katherine in late 2020, hitting the ground running with a restaurant operated by the Pablo Eggs Go Bar team. The brand is now rapidly expanding across Gauteng and in May opened a new budget hotel, The Mint Hotel Sandton View in Wynberg, which also has a Pablo restaurant called Pablo People. And it doesn't stop there. Work is already underway on a new The Mint hotel in Melrose and the group also recently launched The Mint Collection Blyde Villa, a four-bedroom serviced villa overlooking the lagoon at Pretoria's exclusive Blyde Riverwalk Estate. All properties are currently running very compelling specials, that start from just R450 a night for a room at The Mint Hotel Sandton View. Find out more at minthotels.co.za.
Bookings now open for the 58 Farmhouse at Nirox Sculpture ParkThe first stage of a gorgeous new boutique hotel called 58, currently taking shape in the farmland adjoining Nirox Sculpture Park, is now open for bookings. The farmhouse has 22 minimalist-chic rooms now open for bookings, with more suites and exclusive villas due to open later in the year. Find out more and book here.
