NH Hotels & Resorts Brand Debuts in Africa with the Launch of NH Johannesburg Sandton Hotel

Minor Hotels, an international hotel owner, operator and investor with more than 550 hotels in 56 countries in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, the Indian Ocean, Europe and the Americas, proudly announces the latest addition to its portfolio in Africa – NH Johannesburg Sandton. The launch is part of a strategic partnership between Minor Hotels and The Cavaleros Group, one of the largest privately-owned property groups in South Africa, and represents the debut of NH Hotels & Resorts on the continent and Minor Hotels’ commitment to expansion in the region.


The addition of NH Johannesburg Sandton is part of Minor Hotels’ strategy to expand its global footprint and cater to travellers’ evolving preferences. The launch was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the hotel led by Amir Golbarg, Minor Hotels’ Senior Vice President Operations – Middle East, Africa and India, and Penny Cavaleros, Chief Executive Officer of The Cavaleros Group.


The property will first operate as NH Johannesburg Sandton and subsequently, following an extensive refurbishment, will be rebranded as NH Collection Sandton.


Located in Sandton, the 329-key property offers a selection of guest room categories including Standard, Deluxe and Executive rooms, One Bedroom Suites and the 145 sqm Presidential Suite. Dining options include Tradewinds, which offers sophisticated dining with an international menu of a la carte and buffet dishes. With two bars, an executive lounge and 12 meeting and events spaces accommodating up to 750 delegates, NH Johannesburg Sandton is an ideal and convenient meeting venue in the country’s financial centre of Sandton.  A gym and large outdoor swimming pool enhance the guest experience by offering wellness and leisure options.


The launch of NH Johannesburg Sandton marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the hotel, which has long been a cornerstone of the Sandton business district,” commented Amir Golbarg, Senior Vice President Operations – Middle East. “We chose this particular hotel for its strategic location and rich heritage, and we are dedicated to delivering unparalleled hospitality that exceeds the expectations of our guests and contributes to the thriving tourism sector in South Africa.”


The rebranding of the hotel to NH Hotels & Resorts offers guests an exciting gateway to the GHA DISCOVERY loyalty programme, where members can unlock exclusive benefits and rewards across nearly 230 NH hotels, in addition to opening doors to a broader world of hotels and resorts with over 800 hotels across 40 distinguished brands in 100 countries.


Looking ahead, NH Johannesburg Sandton will introduce new initiatives to enhance guest experiences and expand its market presence. This includes the development of exclusive packages, curated local experiences, and continued investment in sustainable practices. The property’s transformation is designed to resonate with both local and international guests, offering a blend of comfort and modern sophistication.


Nico Vivier, Regional Director of Operations & Development at Minor Hotels South Africa, commented on the significance of this move: “South Africa is a vibrant and rapidly growing market with immense opportunities in the tourism sector. The debut of NH Johannesburg Sandton allows us to bring our world-class hospitality standards to this region, providing travellers with a premium experience that showcases the best of local culture and hotel accommodation.”


Vivier extended heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated team, partners, and supporters who made this launch possible. “Our success is a testament to the hard work and vision of our team, and the unwavering support from our partners, The Cavaleros Group.”


NH Hotels & Resorts has an existing portfolio of over 230 properties in well-connected destinations across Europe and the Americas and is now expanding its footprint into other regions. NH provides guests with value-for-money, smart service and all the necessary comforts for work, rest or enjoyment, ensuring each stay is always a pleasure.
