Radisson Red: The Ultimate Trendy Hotel Experience in Johannesburg

Radisson Red: The Ultimate Trendy Hotel Experience in Johannesburg

With the warmest welcome from the reception staff, Radisson Red in Rosebank, South Africa was home to our Friendly staycation for the culmination of Ramadan.

Warmest welcomes

Jo’burg is synonymous with hustle and creativity whilst Rosebank is emerging as its ever-inclusive cultural hub. Radisson RED Johannesburg Rosebank is the ‘place-to-be’ to celebrate cultures and I could not imagine a better place for us to be enjoying ourselves at the time. There’s no denying that the hotel added even more of an edge to our already thriving energy.

The Heart of Sandton – is the place to be…

Known for its high-end shopping, dining, and entertainment options, Radisson Red Johannesburg is within walking distance of Sandton City. The Sandton Gautrain Station is also nearby, providing easy access to other parts of the city.

Our Staycation Suite

Rooms: Our Junior Suite and other features

We were booked into the Junior Suite for our staycation. Starting the day with a morning cup of coffee from the in-room coffee and tea facilities. The suite comes with rapid free Wi-Fi, as well as personal device streaming, allowing guests to watch their favourite shows on the Junior Suite´s flat-screen TV.

Overall, the hotel offers a variety of room types to suit the needs of their guests. Having standard rooms which come with a comfortable bed, a desk, a TV, and a private bathroom and for those who require more space, they have deluxe rooms which come with all the amenities of a standard room plus a seating area and a mini-fridge. The executive rooms are perfect for business travellers as they come with a larger desk, a comfortable chair, and complimentary Wi-Fi. In my opinion, the suites are the trending options around, featuring a separate living area, optional features, and stunning views of the city.

The Red Rooftop Bar & Terrace

It seems like there is always something happening. From after work drinks to exclusive parties…

The Red Rooftop Bar & Terrace has a beat of its own. We enjoyed mocktails and memorable moments taking in the fresh air and vibrant ambience whilst gazing out at a spectacular Jozi sunset sprawled across the rooftop pool.

Mocktails & memorable moments

The next morning’s breakfast was just the ultimate treat for our tastebuds, leading up to the rest of the day. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet spread which invoked a bigger appetite for the ‘EID celebrations with the family’ to finish off the weekend vibe.
