About Idwala Boutique Hotel

A luxurious and comfortable haven set in tranquil indigenous gardens, in the leafy green suburb of Darrenwood. The rooms are all thatched and tastefully renovated, with magnificent views over the Northern Suburbs. Delicious breakfasts are served, with dinner and light meals by arrangement.

The ambiance is luxurious, quiet, and relaxing, it is an ideal place for a stopover or as a second home during your business trip or stay in Johannesburg.

Idwala Boutique Hotel Johannesburg is an original farmhouse which was built using natural rock over 100 years ago. This rock has been carried over into our bathrooms, which have natural rock features so that a clever mixture of luxury and nature is evident throughout the guest house.


The rooms are all thatched and tastefully renovated to create a luxurious and comfortable haven set in tranquil indigenous gardens, so that the guest house is now a stylish luxurious home away from home, equipped with the latest technology and conveniently situated in the middle of Johannesburg with magnificent views over the Northern Suburbs.

The spacious non-smoking bedrooms are comfortably furnished with extra length kingsize beds, crisp cotton linen, flat screen LCD television, with satellite channels (DStv), underfloor heating and stunning bathrooms, with heated towel rails. Computer facilities include wireless ADSL internet access.

In addition to the spacious bedrooms with luxurious en suite bathrooms, Idwala is also able to offer a charming 2-roomed cottage, with a bedroom, full bathroom, lounge with self-catering facilities and own patio, and a 1-roomed cottage with kitchenette / dining area and a superb view!


A huge welcoming lounge where you can unwind on arrival awaits you watch the sun fade away over the Northcliff hill as you sip a cocktail at the bar adjoining the lounge area. On the many warm days and evenings perhaps a dip in the splash pool will refresh and revive you, or warm yourself at the open fireplace during the cold weather!


We also offer conference facilities, fax and printing services, airport transfers, laundry services, and restaurant bookings. For both tourist and executive alike, Idwala offers tranquil surroundings where you can immerse yourself in luxury while at the same time carry out your business efficiently.

Our focus is on your comfort and no effort will be spared to ensure that you enjoy a peaceful and memorable stay!


Idwala lies in the leafy green suburb of Darrenwood, away from the hustle and bustle of the large city and yet just a few minutes away from Cresta Centre, one of the largest and most popular shopping centres in Johannesburg. Rosebank, which has a variety of shops with an international flavour, is not more than ten minutes away, and Sandton, the ever expanding business centre with a treasure trove of boutiques and restaurants is also within easy reach. The trendy and varied restaurants of Parkhurst and Greenside are only a few minutes drive from Idwala.
