Intimate 5 Star Boutique Hotel and Nature Conservancy

A short drive away from Pretoria, Johannesburg or Lanseria International Airport one will find a lush 166-hectare nature reserve on which stands a Moorish-inspired bushveld jewel. As you enter the impressive gateway leading to the palace-like building, you leave reality behind you and are drawn to a fantasy-like world of Arabian opulence. This is the Orient Hotel, an exclusive and revered 5-star boutique hotel, where uniqueness is valued, respected and celebrated through its architecture, location and decor. 220-year old massive Indian rosewood doors open to a sumptuous entrance hall, with a Moroccan style lounge area and spiral staircases. The 10 exclusive Suites have been designed by blending the most desirable contemporary, Colonial and Moorish décor; from high sloping ceilings, scenic balconies with valley views and carved doors. Removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, on the highest point of the Crocodile River Valley, the available venues present guests and delegates with the ideal space to host a wedding, conference, special get-together or meeting. The venues available: One 20 seater Conference room Two 8-seater Conference rooms 20-Seater Movie Theatre Outdoor 20-seater Palm Court Enjoy nature at its best, early morning or late afternoon, by strolling down the walkways or one of the three walking trails on the 200 hectares of Conservation Area within the Francolin Conservancy. Several species of birds inhabit different parts of the Francolin Conservancy. All of the shady trees that surround you are indigenous to this area. There is an abundance of wildlife in Francolin, including Nyala, Zebra, Waterbuck, Impala, Blesbok, Duiker and many more. On the walking trails you will find the most beautiful and rare flowers, medicinal plants, indigenous animals, majestic trees and even quirky insects. The elegant style of architecture for the Art Museum located on the grounds of the Orient Hotel is highlighted by fountains, geometric designs and decorative emblems with a Moorish influence. The architecture is classically Persian and the building includes the characteristic use of repeating patterns, keyhole-shaped arches, weighty wooden doors adorned with intricate metalwork and courtyards with flourishing gardens. The museum's distinguished fittings and finishes were hand-selected and imported from around the world over a number of years, with a keen eye for small and complex detail carefully contemplated and executed to perfection. The result is a magnificent museum and gallery that appeals to the eye and the senses.
