We had our annual Company Strategic planning session at this delightful hotel. During our breaks the only topic of discussion between my colleagues was what a wonderful venue this was.

Staying at Thaba is always a wonderful experience. We stop in for a few tranquil days every year when we visit South Africa. Its close to the airport and several places of interest, but most of all its peaceful. Its a great location to start any visit to South Africa and recover from jet lag before continuing on your journey.

When we got to our room there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us (we received a total of 4 bottles, all being delivered while we were not in the room, in fact, we didn't have any disturbances from the cleaning/ room staff at all). The view from the... More

Went here for a company team building in February. What a delight. Had our conference, food for lunch was of good quality, it could be improved upon, maybe by adding more of a variety? However, dinner was more of my style with lots to choose the from and a great vibe all round. The spa is a must, got an... More

We there went for a company function and it was a wonderful stay. The food was good, the bar was great and the service was even better. We also enjoyed a few activities (pigeon shooting). It was an amazing stay.

Located just south of downtown Johannesburg, it feels as though you are in the plains of South Africa yet you are still in Johannesburg. It is away from the hustle & bustle of the busy freeways & dense populations. Located well back off the road in bush land provides a very quiet & tranquil surrounding. A great atmosphere to relax...

I stayed at thaba ya for my anniversary. The views are beautiful. We were surrounded by nature as the room had glass all around. We had dinner and breakfast both which were great value for money. This was truly a romantic holiday thanks to thaba ya.
