“The birds of Indaba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I arrived at Indaba on June 3, 2014 after an exhausting flight from Lusaka. Exhausting because I travelled economy. The hotel along Fourways is clean and truly four star. The standrads are high. You are driven to your room but after that it becomes a nightmare walking from the rooms to the restaurants like chiefs boma. the distance is exhausting. The staff in restaurants should try as much as possible to be friendly. Its not everyone at fault though.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the reception might be better in terms of accesing other hotel facilities.

This was an early Mother's Day treat and mom loved it. The spa was wonderful and the room was beautiful .The beds are very comfortable. There is ample parking and different parkign areas for each section. Mowana Spa has a variety of products on sale. Mowana Spa's food was delicious. The grounds are very pretty.

Room Tip: Not about the rooms but do not trust your GPS to get you there. We got lost and they are not listed...

I came here for a girls' relaxation day-out. We got the Me Time Indulge package which included two treatments, coffee/tea and light snacks.

The environment is a relaxing and warm African setting, lots of open space, outdoor treatment rooms, with friendly and professional service. Bathroom/locker rooms were very clean and felt very relaxing with fresh flowers and flower petals accenting the space.

The foot/leg exfoliation and body massage was excellent. I really loved the open air space, being surrounded by nature, and take a mental time out. By the time I was having my hot stone massage, I was truly relaxed and had fallen into a deep slumber. You can have a shared treatment room, in this case I was sharing with my sister, who let me know I had been snoring during my massage. That proves to me that I had reached true tranquility! I woke refreshed and stress-free.

I would definitely recommend it for a day out to chill out and pamper yourself, for locals and visitors!

I would like to thank management and staff of Indaba Hotel with their warm welcome and excellent service, my partner and I were very impressed.

The food, rooms were clean and specious.

The Spar treatment was the most highlight of our holiday.

Thank you again.

This was our first hotel out of 6 on a tour and gave an excellent welcome. Great place to chill and not too far from Airport.
Staff were very friendly, hotel felt very safe and everything really clean and convenient.

We stayed in this hotel at the start of a tour of South Africa. It has very comfortable beds and friendly staff. The pools are pleasant but both had leaves in, and rather like all pools on our tour, were unheated so somewhat bracing! They were both set in lovely environments. There is a lovely terrace and the good in chief boma was very good. We had the buffet which was excellent value and we enjoyed the African band.

Breakfast was ok but rather chaotic as the restaurant was cramped and it was very busy as everyone seemed to be leaving at the same time.

Excellent accommodation, excellent service and food. Nice location, close to Monte Casino and Sandton. Romantic setting, feels like you are away from the city centre. Rooms are very comfortable, clean and luxurious.
