Breaking the convention of City-Hotels and Meeting Venues our expansive gardens and quiet residential setting offer a relaxed “home-from-home” environment for the Business and Leisure traveler looking for a more personal and uniquely tranquil experience in the cosmopolitan suburb of Rivonia.

Welcome to the Sandton Lodge Rivonia, we extend a very warm welcome and trust your upcoming stay or conference with us will be both enjoyable and comfortable. 

Sandton is an affluent city situated in the Johannesburg Municipality, Gauteng, South Africa. The name comes from the combination of two of its suburbs, Sandown and Bryanston. In 1969 Sandton was promulgated as a municipality but lost its status as an independent town after the reorganization of South African local governments. 

The Simama Hotels Sandton Lodge Rivonia offers business services and facilities. Our 34 Suites are all strictly non-smoking and have; Air-conditioning and Heating, Tea and Coffee Facilities, DSTV Decoder, a Mini-Bar Fridge (Stocked on request) and complimentary Broadband WiFi Internet Access with Secure on-site Parking available.

As part of our continued guest-safety measures and growing international trend, the Sandton Lodge Hotel is a cashless establishment, for your convenience all major Credit and Debit cards are accepted in addition to Snap-Scan and Apple-Pay facilities.

While South Africa is a beautiful country natural resources are under great strain. The Sandton Lodge Team endeavours to utilize Generator Power sparingly in addition to our other ongoing green initiatives to minimize energy consumption.

we also take great pride in our “Water-Wise” practices aiding the unnecessary consumption of this limited resource, our on-site purified bore-hole system ensures that the Hotel always has water in the event of municipal outages and our green initiatives extend to solar geysers and a transition to full led and solar lighting.

Due to the excessive nationwide load shedding which has necessitated that additional restrictions be placed on our Generating capacity to keep our Accommodation costs reduced. During our Electricity Provider ESKOM’s planned and/or scheduled Load Shedding (Power Outages) the Sandton Lodge Hotel only operates on Generator Power until 23:00 pm in the evenings. Emergency Lighting is provided in-suite and main public areas during these periods. Our Security staff are equipped with Torches.

At the discretion of Management, we may further restrict Generator use from 12:00 – 16:00 pm on Sunday and Mondays without prior notice. Please note that there is no tap water available during these “offline periods” due to the municipal pumps being offline as a result of the loading after 23:00 pm in the evenings and during the day*. Internet Access/Wi-Fi and in-Suite phones will also be disconnected during these periods in the event of Load Shedding and our Generator being offline.

Whilst we continue to develop our green initiatives our Team will always ensure that your stay remains;  Private, tranquil and Comfortable.

Welcome to some of South Africa’s wealthiest square miles, but make sure you don’t get lost – take a wrong turn down one of the gated roads and you’ll be frustratedly zig-zagging your way up and down shut-off streets.
