The Regent scoops top WTA award

The Regent has walked away with the World Travel Award for Africa’s Leading Apartment Hotel following a glittering ceremony in South Africa.

The Johannesburg-based property fought off stiff competition from across the continent, with director Cori Terblanche picking up the prize in front of a 1,000 strong industry audience last night.

But what is it that makes this development so special?

The Regent

Set just a ten minute walk away from the vibrant Sandton business district, the peaceful ten story property houses 98 luxurious apartments. A gentle curve to the structure presents many of these with stunning views over the surrounding area.


The philosophy at The Regent is one of tranquillity; peaceful estate living within the Sandton effervescent energy.

Individual apartments are accessed via lifts from the lobby.

The living areas are developed on the North fa├žade of the building and open onto a terrace. Large corner windows open the living spaces up to the surrounding views and gardens - flooding the properties with natural light.


The penthouse apartments comprise three floors; the bedroom level at the bottom, the living areas on the central level and an entertainment terrace on the roof level.

These have double the living space and include a splash pool.
