Reading Time: 2 minutes

Tsogo Sun’s Palazzo hotel has once again been voted Best Luxury Casino Hotel
on the African continent in the coveted World Luxury Hotel Awards. This is
the fifth consecutive win for the Palazzo, which was first recognised in
2010. Five years later, the Palazzo remains a force to be reckoned with in
the luxury hotel sector in South Africa and across Africa.
Held annually, the World Luxury Hotel Awards is an exclusive tribute given
to exceptional luxury hotels worldwide. Founded in 2007, the World Luxury
Hotel Awards is recognised as the pinnacle of achievement for luxury hotels
worldwide – a celebration of ultimate achievement in service excellence that
recognises and rewards hotels that have excelled beyond the normal standards
of quality and service. The winners are selected from votes cast by guests,
tour operators and independent travel consultants globally. For the winners,
these awards signify excellence, while for travellers they provide assurance
of top class quality and exceptional experiences.
The Palazzo has, in the 14 years since it opened, found a special place in
the hearts of the people who come to enjoy its luxurious rooms, which range
from the 600m2 Penthouse to the luxurious executive, deluxe and superior
rooms, its spectacular setting with a distant view of the Magaliesberg
mountains, its ideal location within the Montecasino precinct and burgeoning
Fourways, and its welcoming and personalised service. With much to offer the
business and leisure traveller, and the uniquely personalised service to
which every one of the 180 staff are committed to delivering, the Palazzo is
an authentic hotel in every possible way.
All 246 rooms of the Palazzo underwent a refurbishment recently – ensuring
that the hotel’s high standard of refined elegance and opulence that have
been the hallmarks of the property since it opened in November 2000 is
maintained. The refurbishment includes an addition of a new function venue
in the garden alongside the colonnade leading through to the Montecasino
complex. This venue, aptly named ‘Rosa’, ensures that The Palazzo can
accommodate the demand for additional restaurant and function space.
The Palazzo is perfectly located in the upmarket suburb of Fourways,
Johannesburg, a mere 15 minutes from Sandton, South Africa’s business hub,
40 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport and 20 minutes from Lanseria
International Airport. And, with the award-winning Montecasino entertainment
complex on its doorstep, guests can step out of the calm of the palatial
hotel with its serene rooms, beautiful gardens, delightful dining options
and spectacular swimming pool, to indulge in entertainment of every possible
variety. From dining to gaming to festivals, concerts, theatre and more –
the choices are endless!
The Palazzo is one of five luxury properties within Tsogo Sun’s portfolio of
over 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations throughout South
Africa, Africa and the Seychelles. For full information on The Palazzo or to book your room, visit
