The Leonardo All-Suite Hotel & Residences

Next Level Luxury Lifestyle Living

Rising 234 metres from the street below, The Leonardo has introduced the continent to a new level of luxurious lifestyle living at the most exclusive address in Africa.


Designed by acclaimed architects, Co-Arc International Architects with interiors by Steven Falcke and Varoom, The Leonardo is Africa′s ultimate living experience embracing the latest in technology, energy-efficiencies and green, sustainable principles. From its furnishings to its finishings, the interior of each Leonardo suite is the epitome of luxury, with an interior palette that rivals the best in the world reflecting an aesthetic consistent with modern Africa.


Across every space, wall and pause area – The Leonardo is a literal gallery that celebrates and lauds the works of Africa’s finest artists and creative minds in a cumulative art installation that echoes the intention and realisation of the building in situ.


Guests at The Leonardo can enjoy a variety of eateries, including Leo’s Lounge & Deli, the wood-fired meal offering, Octo Bar, the soon-to-be opened sky bar, Alto234, and the building’s flagship restaurant, AURUM, meaning “gold” in Latin.

The AURUM menu is inspired by contemporary European cuisine with a touch of local flair that includes signature dishes, cured springbok, slow braised pork belly and ‘Afternoon Tea’, a dessert reminiscent of dunking rusks into tea, showcasing flavours of rooibos, buttermilk and clemengold. AURUM’s wine list features 99 of both South Africa and the globe’s finest wines, and allows guests to be exploratory, while also offering them familiar favourites from the Cape Winelands.


In the Wine Library, guests can enjoy a smaller list boasting special vintages, limited releases and edgier options for the adventurous.


Facilities at The Leonardo include a world-class gym, outdoor lap pool, poolside cabanas and the Leonardo Spa, where ancient therapies combine with the latest in beauty and restorative wellness. The treatment menu includes facial and body therapies and massages, while also being the only spa in the Sandton CBD that offers restorative wellness to its clients.


The Leonardo is in walking distance from the financial and retail hubs of Sandton, with guests benefiting from secure onsite parking, complimentary transfers within a 2km radius of the property, as well as a 24-hour concierge service making it the ideal vacation, staycation or residence location.


Before it opened its doors, The Leonardo was awarded the “tallest building in South Africa” accolade, making it the perfect centre piece of the Legacy Hotels & Resorts’ collection of Africa’s most exclusive and unforgettable four and five-star hotels, resorts and bush lodges.
