Send to Kindle
Idwala Guest House

Idwala Guest House

WIN a weekend away with friends or family (6 people) at Idwala Boutique Guest House, a luxurious and comfortable haven set in tranquil indigenous gardens, in the leafy green suburb of Darrenwood in Johannesburg.

This truly distinguished Boutique Guest House offers a very special and luxurious environment combined with an embracing warm hospitality. Idwala’s passion is to care for a handful of guests who are looking for the finer things in life.

Idwala offers pure tranquility and the feeling of being ‘out in the bush’ even though it is situated conveniently in the middle of Johannesburg with easy access to shopping, entertainment and business hubs.

The Prize

Valued at R10 760, the prize includes:

  • luxury accommodation for 6 people sharing for 2 consecutive nights during a weekend
  • 2x champagne breakfast for all 6 of you
  • Jo’burg concierge services (help with planning and organization of activities during your stay at Idwala)


Idwala Guest House

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!

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.

“My husband and I, together with our extended family stayed in the main house occupying all the rooms. We had an amazing stay at Idwala and will always remember the special attention we received. Everyone felt at home in this luxurious guest house in the suburbs of Johannesburg. We had wonderful breakfasts every day. We even had dinner catered for us one evening. When we asked for help in arranging tours around Johannesburg, it was done quickly, with a smile” – Helena Livingston, Singapore
