OUT OF OFFICE | Maslow Hotel
Award Winning Solutions for Business and Leisure
The luxurious Maslow Hotel in the heart of Sandton has received several awards for its catering for the discerning business traveller and for the provision of exciting offerings for weddings and fine dining.
With a four-star grading awarded by the South African Grading Council, The Maslow provides a place to do business away from home as well as conferencing solutions with 12 conference rooms available for hire. The hotel also offers the flexibility of full-day or half-day conferencing, allowing guests to choose a tailor-made package that best suits their needs.
The Maslow knows that experience is everything and that the best facilities go hand in hand with excellent service. For this reason, all of its butlers undergo extensive training to ensure that, from the moment guests arrive until they leave; they receive the highest quality of service from committed,
motivated staff. Growing a business-centric hotel in the Sun International hotel portfolio, The Maslow offers guests an entirely new class of hotel: one that knows that work and life need to be balanced. By offering the best in conferencing, luxury accommodation and other creature comforts, The Maslow prides itself on providing a full package for its guests.
he name of the hotel is inspired by world-renowned psychologist Abraham Maslow, famous for his Hierarchy of Needs theory. These needs – both basic and sophisticated/complex – are what The Maslow aims to meet with respect to its guests. This is the way it chooses to understand its guests, and everything at the Maslow has been crafted to do just this.
The hotel further specialises in customising its services and tailoring its offerings, which means remembering what kind of pillows a returning guest prefers, and providing world-class technology such as complimentary access to uncapped, high-speed Internet for the duration of one’s stay. In-transit guests can experience home-away-from-home comforts in the unique Wayfarer Lounge, which creates a space for day guests to relax in luxury, and to take a refreshing shower on arrival or departure in plush surroundings.
The Maslow has not forgotten that food is an important aspect of keeping business meetings and personal occasions flowing smoothly, and the Lacuna Bistro and Bar is a sophisticated urban bistro to do just this. The Lacuna is proud to have one of its cocktails recently featured in City Press’s list of the 10 best cocktails, and the bar as a whole was voted among the top 24 cocktail bars in South Africa.
It’s not just the cocktails that are award-winning – the World Luxury Spa Award and the unique spa Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Award for 2013 have been awarded to its Africology Spa. The spa is the ideal place to relax after a day’s work and offers a range of treatments, from oxygen therapy to massage. Because of its popularity with business guests, most treatments focus on stress relief and balancing, giving them the energy to do a little more.
From top to toe, The Maslow offers unexpected delights and areas where guests can relax. One of these is the rooftop garden where herbs are grown organically. The potager garden is the latest project of Lacuna Bistro chef Dallas Orr. Chef Orr is passionate about using the best, freshest and most sustainable organic ingredients, and growing herbs was a natural extension of the holistic approach the hotel takes. Designed to delight the senses of guests in the bustle of the vibrant Sandton business district, this is just another way the hotel seeks to make sure its guests are looked after in every way possible.
Of course, life isn’t all about business. Many couples have tied the knot within the beautiful spaces created by the Maslow. Hotel staff will ensure that weddings are the perfect experience they should be, with world-class service. Since The Maslow’s is conveniently situated so near to the Gautrain, guests flying in for weddings experience a hassle-free occasion.
‘Business as usual’ really is a thing of the past at The Maslow. Take a step into the future.
