Elevate your Corporate Event at AtholPlace House & Villa…Strategise in Style!
27 November 2023
As 2023 winds down, projects are completed, and final meetings are being scheduled, isn’t this the ideal time to start planning your next conference, event or strategy session? Take advantage of the quieter months of January and February to bring your teams together to set the tone for the year ahead.
AtholPlace House & Villa in the quiet suburb of Athol, Johannesburg, is our exclusive-use property, offering a conveniently situated venue close to the Sandton Central Business District. Equipped to host small conferences, hybrid meetings, workshops, and product launches for up to 50 people, and with stable Wi-Fi, bespoke function menus, and attentive service in a five-star setting, we look forward to making your event a success.
Extend the experience for your team with an overnight or longer stay. We can accommodate 26 people in two houses – 18 guests in nine rooms at AtholPlace House, while the more intimate AtholPlace Villa has four bedrooms accommodating eight guests. The two buildings provide a conducive environment of versatile spaces for both formal and informal interactions. Facilities include luxurious living and dining areas that showcase our prized artworks, a library and landscaped gardens accented with sculptures.
After a day of meetings and brainstorming, your team can unwind with drinks at the bar, followed by dinner on the terrace or under the trees in the garden, and a nightcap around the boma. These casual settings are where the real conversations happen, allowing individuals to connect on a deeper level, away from the formalities of the boardroom.
Tailor your programme
Our property is also the perfect backdrop for hosting your executive coach. Whether it's for DISC training, Enneagram workshops, or other coaching exercises, maximise the experience by enhancing team dynamics, communication and cohesion.
Perhaps team wellness is on your 2024 agenda? We have an onsite gym, private temperature-controlled swimming pool and outsourced massage therapists who provide in-room destressing massages and treatments.
Are you interested in historical and cultural excursions for your team? Our preferred supplier facilitates fascinating guided tours and experiences in Johannesburg, such as a visit to the Apartheid Museum and colourful Soweto or guided walks through Newtown and the Maboneng Precinct.
Dining and personalised service
We offer bed and breakfast, but full board is also possible on request. In this case, our chefs are available daily to tailor menus according to your team's preferences – traditional, formal or nouvelle cuisine. We cater for all dietary requirements, including Kosher (additional supplement).
Mealtimes are flexible to fit in with your programme and served at your accommodation. This attention to detail extends to all aspects of service at AtholPlace House & Villa, where our dedicated team is on hand to attend to every requirement and request, ensuring a memorable stay for our corporate guests.
Location, location, location
The proximity of our property to world-class shopping centres, art galleries, and cultural landmarks adds to its appeal as a corporate destination. The Gautrain station is less than a kilometre away and has a direct connection to and from O R Tambo International Airport. Sandton City, Nelson Mandela Square, and various restaurants are within minutes of AtholPlace House & Villa, as are leading art galleries, such as Everard Read, CIRCA and SMAC.
Let us tailor a package for your team, whether at AtholPlace House, AtholPlace Villa, or our combined properties. We welcome a list of your requirements to ensure your conference, meeting or corporate retreat exceeds expectations. Chart the course for a successful 2024 while enjoying the luxury and tranquillity of one of our finest properties in Johannesburg.
