Astrino shares his experience in opening the Acsiopolis high-rise in Sandton and why @Sandton Hotel stands out from the crowd.
What is the difference between Acsiopolis, @Sandton Hotel, @Sandton Apartments and @Sandton Lifestyle and Anaprop?
These are the brands housed within the Acsiopolis Development in Sandton. The Projects name translates to City of Worth and all the brands @Sandton are run by our in-house teams.
Anaprop is our original property management business that uses its experience and intellectual property to manage the property, its facilities and apartment rentals.
What excites you the most about the @Sandton Hotel?
It’s a full lifestyle experience in one development – we’ve provided all amenities and services within the Acsiopolis building, which houses the @Sandton Hotel brand. We’ve also invested in cutting edge technology to ensure the full safety and security of our guests and residents.
What makes @Sandton Hotel stand out from the crowd?
We tick a lot of boxes! The hotel is beautifully designed, comfortable and luxurious, and we’ve made sure to keep pricing affordable so that everyone can enjoy the @Sandton Hotel experience.
What are your favourite areas of the @Sandton Hotel?
I have a few. The atrium – where you’ll find the hotel lobby – is incredibly striking and an amalgamation of all the uses in the building. The piazza is a beautiful spot to catch the sunset, and of course, I have to mention the penthouse – it’s the ultimate in luxury, with wall-to-wall imported marble and epic views.
What do you want people to get from their @Sandton Hotel experience?
We want people to enjoy themselves, knowing that everything they want is under one roof – from leisure to conferencing, wellness and dining, we’ve covered everything. There’s even a child minder service in place so that parents can enjoy their time here while their kids are looked after by our team.
What was the brief for the look and feel of the hotel?
We wanted something modern and grandiose, a building that makes a statement in the Sandton skyline.
What’s the best part about doing what you do?
Bringing to life the incredible vision of the Anaprop group has been a milestone for me and seeing the hotel come to life as guests arrive is very special. We’re looking forward to seeing how it evolves in the coming months and years.
