Set in Nelson Mandela’s primary place of residence in the leafy-green suburb of Houghton, Johannesburg, Sanctuary Mandelas the home Madiba lived in after he returned from Robben Island, where he hosted the likes of Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton which later became the headquarters of the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Sanctuary Mandela is now a re-envisioned residency, a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel with 9 curated rooms and offers retreat spaces for reflection, healing and thought-provoking experiences inspired by the life and times of Nelson Mandela.

In Nelson Mandela’s household, food was more than sustenance. It was about tradition, family, home, sharing and enjoying meals with those he loved. In memory of his love for food, our fine dining restaurant serves as a tribute to his favourite dishes as previously prepared by his long-time personal chef, Xoliswa Ndoyiya.

    Your portion control good but your prices are too pricey

    There is nothing I could have asked for. I honestly felt loved... (see my IG post) simply because care regarding my gluten intolerance was taking more seriously than one could have ever hoped. Thanks so much for all that you are.
