At the helm of the brand-new @Sandton Hotel is General Manager Anthony Batistich, and we chatted with the GM to find out why he was excited to join the @Sandton Hotel team.
What appealed to you about joining @Sandton Hotel?
The opportunity to be involved with this unique, one-of-a-kind offering in the heart of Sandton as well as the challenge of opening a large-scale hotel and apartment offering with over 1000 keys during a pandemic.
What makes @Sandton Hotel stand out from the crowd?
Its unique concept in terms of hotel, residential and lifestyle offerings that can be compared to Dubai-style living. It’s really a city within a city.
What’s your favourite spot in the hotel?
The grand foyer! The views over Sandton and the north of Johannesburg are also very special.
Best part of working at @Sandton Hotel?
Building self-managed teams and aligning business strategies that will make this property successful. I have also loved creating a new and unique experience in Sandton.
How does @Sandton Hotel meet expected travel trends?
I believe the demand for enhanced technology and personalised experiences will be big trends, and we’ve created the environment within @Sandton Hotel to meet the demand. Features such as state-of-the-art technology, all the amenities that guests could need within the building, and apartment-style accommodation – all combine to create the perfect stay for modern travellers.
