Sanctuary Mandela, Johannesburg

Set in Nelson Mandela’s primary place of residence in the leafy suburb of Houghton, Johannesburg, Sanctuary Mandela was once the home Madiba lived in after he achieved freedom. Now re-envisioned, one-of-a-kind boutique accommodation with 9 curated rooms, Sanctuary Mandela is a retreat for reflection, healing and thought-provoking experiences inspired by Madiba’s life.

Paying homage to Madiba’s depth of character and contemplative spirit, Sanctuary Mandela is surrounded by lush gardens and retreat spaces filled with perfectly-curated exhibits that pay tribute to the human rights activist, former perfect president and global icon, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Every corner of the boutique hotel is envisaged to provide the combination of tranquillity, heritage, and mindful experiences. Time spent at Sanctuary Mandela promises a sense of healing and reflection for all visitors.
