Four Tsogo Sun properties, as well as the group as a whole, have recently received awards across a range of categories. The properties that were singled out include the Sandton Convention Centre, InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo, the Palazzo Hotel, and Southern Sun Hyde Park.
Tsogo Sun and the Sandton Convention Centre took home three awards from the Business Traveller Awards Africa 2018, with Tsogo Sun winning the Best South African Hotel Group and the Best Business Hotel Group in South Africa categories and Sandton Convention Centre winning the Best Large Conference Venue award. The conference centre also won the Best Conference Venue Centre in Gauteng in the Star Readers’ Choice awards.
Shaun Bird, GM of Sandton Convention Centre, says, “Delivering a world-class service as a leading multi-purpose venue in South Africa is at the heart of what we do – every day, and we are grateful for this validation of our efforts.”
Two Tsogo Sun hotels won top honours at the 2018 World Luxury Hotel Awards, which provides luxury hotels with global recognition for their world-class facilities and service excellence.

Tambo moved up the charts with a global Luxury Airport Hotel award, having won in the Africa category last year.
Lastly, the annual Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards 2018 named Southern Sun Hyde Park as 2018’s Best Sundowner Spot. The hotel offers breathtaking views from the rooftop deck, exhilarating Friday DJ sessions, and a fresh and innovative Island Bar menu and curated cocktail selection.
