The Regent, in Johannesburg, has been recognised as the World’s Leading Residential Apartments by the World Travel Awards for the past two years. Here Breaking Travel News takes a tour.
Having been recognised as Africa’s Leading Apartment Hotel and the World’s Leading Residential Apartments by the prestigious World Travel Awards for the past two years, The Regent, Johannesburg, has a world-class reputation to celebrate.
Located near the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the Sandton Convention Centre, Nelson Mandela Square and the impressive Sandton Shopping Centre, The Regent offers an unsurpassed luxurious lifestyle to leisure and business guests, with excellent facilities and amenities of the highest standard. The Regent’s decor theme adheres to a modern yet comfortable style with exceptional “Yes-I-Can” service standards.
This magnificent hotel building has a gentle curve that presents the apartments with breath taking views of Sandton, the country’s business and fashion hub. The philosophy at The Regent is one of tranquillity and peaceful living in a “home-away-from-home” environment. The hotel’s architecture was calculated in such a way that it allows an abundance of natural light to flood each room, taking full advantage of the warm northern sunlight for which South Africa is celebrated. The incorporation of expanses of glass further enhances the sense of space, allowing guests to indulge in the beautiful surrounding city views.
Cori Terblanche, Director and Co-Owner, The Regent, told Breaking Travel News: “We developed this property as an apartment block initially, but we were thrown into the deep-end when The Regent became an apartment-hotel.
“Being such a new hotel, we were deeply honoured when the World Travel Awards recognised our work and we will continue to develop over the coming years.”
The suites are accessed via private elevators which lead guests directly into their entrance lobby, while the living areas are situated on the northern facade of the building and open onto a private terrace. Large corner windows open the living spaces to the views and the gardens below. The magnificent penthouses span three floors, with the bedroom on the ground level, the living areas on the centre level and an entertainment terrace with a splash pool on the roof.
The contemporary and luxurious decor style is reflected throughout the grounds of The Regent, including a fully-equipped exclusive gym complete with a heated swimming pool that is partially indoor and outdoor. Wellness In Motion Club & Spa provides top level fitness technologies with personal trainers on hand for assistance to ensure a complete body workout. The 24-hour reception offers the luxury and convenience of concierge services such as executive chartered flights, private catering and travel bookings. The Hotel offers five modern in-house meeting rooms, free high-speed internet connectivity, shuttle services and limousine VIP services.
The Regent’s personalised VIP treatment, coupled with a high-tech security system, which includes biometric finger print access system, makes the property a world class destination in the hub in vibrant Sandton business hub.
