While many people opt for a simple room to rest their head when visiting Johannesburg, others wait for the classic decadence available at Max Executive Apartments. From the rooms to the service, every stay is enjoyable. This is what we thought…
5 Rivonia Rd, Illovo, Sandton
There are 28 apartments on site, with a range of six different types to suit your every need. You can choose the executive studio, a two bedroom apartment (either studio or with a garden view), and even a three bedroom apartment for a family. All equipped with living areas and full kitchens, the apartment comes with bespoke furniture and some even come with a view of the landscaped ground, ranging in sizes from 40m² to 110m².
Every apartment is a comfortable home away from home. While each place has different works of art covering walls in taupe and grey, what’s similar is the well-designed interior, satellite TVs (the number of these vary depending on the apartment), washing machines and the warmth carried from the aesthetic of every apartment.
With the direction of a New York apartment, each space in Max Executive Apartments takes on a balance of soft and dark tones translating into something a little sexier. The layout gives way to framing views and entrances, while feature lighting and reputation let the strong textures work with modern pieces and clean lines. The furniture softens up the rooms with a use of grey palettes offset with tan leathers too.
Not only is there free and fast Wi-Fi for guests to connect to the world, Max Executive Apartments also offers a library and a boardroom for onsite meetings of up to 16 guests. The garden centre includes a central pool and if you want to stay in shape, there’s a daily membership at Planet Fitness available. What we loved the most was the pre-arrival shopping. If planned for, each guest can have a range of items ready to make the stay even more enjoyable from the moment they walk in. Not a detail left to chance, Max Apartments is tailored with all the luxuries of a hotel.
Ready to transform into whatever the guest needs for sustenance, The Seconds Lounge, Max Apartments’s restaurant, offers a breakfast, fully equipped to create eggs benedict with hollandaise in the morning or a cappuccino with the perfect amount of foam to kick-start your day. To pick you up or unwind after a long day, the bar makes spectacular martinis too.
Both luxurious and comfortable, Max Apartments gives everyone their privacy with a service customised to every guest’s need.
