Executive outcome: Back in the Sandton high life again
Balancing work and leisure is made easy at the new Capital on the Park development
The demands of modern life have us making tough choices. As we race from meeting to conference to strategy session, we constantly have to decide between quality and comfort or efficiency and convenience. The Capital Hotel and Apartments recently opened its new offering in Sandton, Capital on the Park, so now you don’t have to choose.
Those of us who spend most of our time packing our suitcases for the next out-of-town or out-of-office client meeting will already be well acquainted with The Capital. Managing director Marc Wachsberger’s ambitious strategy has seen his hotels pop up in Umhlanga, Joburg, Cape Town and Pretoria, and I had to see what the fuss was about.
The Capital on the Park is geared towards executives who want the comforts of home with the convenience of a business hotel. A sauna, steam room, poolside champagne bar and an expansive sun deck are some of the many ways you can mix business with pleasure – not forgetting the health spa. On your way to an early morning meeting? Stop by the convenient Grab and Go Deli to snatch up a healthy sandwich, salad or fresh fruit juice.
The hotel has small rooms and larger suites that are perfect for long stays. Our suite came equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher and a large, separate lounge area perfect for sprawling downtime with Netflix; the windows offering panoramic views across the Sandton cityscape.
The main attraction, for me at least, is the benefit of having Sandton's Mushroom Park on the doorstep of the hotel. After a delicious breakfast of freshly baked croissants and a cheesy omelette, we took a leisurely stroll along the small lakes and river of the park where families lay out their picnic spreads, enjoying the crisp spring air.
If you’re on the hunt for your next big property investment and find it difficult to leave at the end of your stay, The Capital on the Park offers luxurious penthouse apartments for sale. Who says you can’t have it all?
