Welcome to Ten Bompas
Close to the heart of Johannesburg and Sandton's business districts, this small, suite-only retreat envelops its guests in warmth and tranquility, whether with its pool and peaceful gardens or through unlocking the wealth of experiences Africa has to offer. A different designer created each of the ten bespoke suites following a brief by proprietor Christoff van Staden to provide natural light and incorporate the lush garden setting. Gill Butler's Edwardian suite combines sand-hued walls and robustly colored leather-embossed furnishings with modern tile and steel. Other suites blur cultures, with military-style canvas and splashes of color typical of the South African landscape. The ethno-African highlights in couturier Andre Croucamp's silk-enhanced suite, the contemporary cool Johannesburg suite by Cecil Lyons and the ethnic turned high-tech approach in the suite designed by the project architects, Zeghers & Associates reflect the color and excitement of the new South Africa. Originally a private dwelling, Ten Bompas has been reimagined as a home away from home in Africa, combining reassuring calm with adventure, sophisitication and a sense of discovery.
Ten Bompas Hotel is situated in Bompas Road, Dunkeld West, just off Jan Smuts Avenue in close proximity of the British Consulate General. Ten Bompas is in the heart of South Africa's premier business area, minutes away from Sandton, Randburg, Hyde Park, Rosebank, and lllovo, and a short drive from Midrand, Pretoria and Johannesburg. Johannesburg International Airport is approximately 30 minutes by car from Ten Bompas.

Each suite was to have a separate lounge and bedroom, a fireplace, guest toilet, steam bath and plenty of natural light, with access to the outdoors via a ground floor patio or a balcony. Each suite is equipped with complimentary bar, high speed internet, satellite television and a compact disc sound system. This formed the basis of Christoff's brief to the designers.
