About Festina Lente

At Festina Lente, which is Latin for “make haste slowly”, we believe that the things we like, that intrigue us and give us joy, are those that are made over time with love and care. Each unit is individually and luxuriously decorated in a style that marries classic French influence seamlessly with "African chic.”

Festina Lente, a luxurious guesthouse, is located in the northern suburb of Hurlingham in Sandton, Johannesburg, and is only 3 km from the popular Sandton City Shopping Centre. The property is easily accessed from both William Nicol and Sandton Drive.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Festina Lente. Our room was beautifully decorated and the service was friendly and professional. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful. Note that the picture on the site is not the only room available, and that all rooms are not alike.
