Ten Bompas is a small luxury all suite hotel located in a garden setting in the Johannesburg suburb of Dunkeld West, close to the business and retail districts of Sandton, Rosebank and Illovo.
Originally the private home of proprietor Christoff van Staden, the building was extensively renovated and redesigned in the 1990's by Belgian born architect Luc Zeghers to create South Africa's first Design Hotel. The reception areas of the hotel feature an appealing collection of African sculptures, art and architecture forming an aesthetic match for the cotemporary African feel of the boutique hotel.
Guests are accommodated in ten large suites each of which has been individually decorated by a different interior designer whose brief was to create a luxury hotel room with a contemporary African ambience but with the emphasis on guest's comfort.
Each of the ten suites comprises a large bedroom, with king, double or twin beds, full bathroom with steam bath, private lounge with double sided wood burning fire place. and complimentary mini bar. Further facilities such as broadband internet access, satellite television, and DVD recorder add to the guest's convenience. Complimentary breakfast, tea and coffee at any time and complimentary mini bar are included in the experience.
Ten Bompas emphasises its garden setting with the lounge, bedroom and bathroom of each suite opening onto a private garden or private terrace. In summer and on warm winter days guests are encouraged to dine outdoors on the terrace or in the garden next to the swimming pool. Ten Bompas is proud of its extensive collection of South African wines which it houses in a double volume, glass fronted wine cellar.
Sides, the award winning restaurant at Ten Bompas, specialises in contemporary new world cuisine with a menu which varies with the seasons. The restaurant features an appealing private collection of African sculptures, art and the hotel's contemporary styling forms a perfect aesthetic match.
