In a world where size is the standard measure of success, where me-too conformity leads the upwardly mobile masses, there is a haven of sanity and tranquility for the true individual – Ten Bompas Hotel.

The reception areas of the hotel comprise various sitting and meeting areas, Sides, the hotel’s award winning restaurant with its own double volume, glass fronted wine cellar as well as function and conference facilities.

The philosophy behind the design is to create a luxurious contemporary boutique hotel in Africa.

Gentle curves and geometric forms create an air of tranquility, which belies the fast pace of Johannesburg. Ten Bompas is enriched with eye-catching focal points in the form of contemporary African art and sculpture.

Warm neutral wall colours, enhanced by the vibrant natural cotton hues of the custom designed furniture in warm fabrics and indigenous wood, provide a peaceful and harmonious environment for meetings or relaxing.

Outdoor terraces, garden and lap pool allow guests to make the most of the beautiful South African climate, whilst in the heart of the business area.

The chic bar area is an ideal place to entertain business guests or relax before dinner. Ten Bompas Hotel is situated in Bompas Road, Dunkeld West, just off Jan Smuts Avenue in close proximity of the British Consulate General. Ten Bompas is in the heart of South Africa’s premier business area, minutes away from Sandton, Randburg, Hyde Park, Rosebank, and lllovo, and a short drive from Midrand, Pretoria and Johannesburg. Johannesburg International Airport is approximately 30 minutes by car from Ten Bompas.

Proprietors Christoff van Staden and Peter Aucamp had very specific ideas for Ten Bompas, and his brief to the ten interior designers, one of whom was the project architect, included many remedies to shortcomings he had encountered on his extensive travels.


Each suite was to have a separate lounge and bedroom, a fireplace, guest toilet, steam bath and plenty of natural light, with access to the outdoors via a ground floor patio or a balcony. Each suite is equipped with complimentary bar, high speed internet, satellite television and a compact disc sound system. This formed the basis of Christoff’s brief to the designers.

Every suite represents each designer’s journey through their interpretation of the brief – essentially the way ten interior designers would like to be “Home from home in Africa”.
