Finally I am back it again with a travel post! I know it has been a couple months since my last trip and although this trip was not very far from home it was most certainly still worth writing about.
This trip was a staycation in Sandton City, where I had the pleasure of vacationing over the weekend at the Radisson Blu Sandton which is situated in the heart of the city.
Checking into our Suite, we were warmly welcomed with a sweet treat of cake and champagne, rose petals scattered all over the suite and our bed beautifully decorated with towels shaped in swans. 
The hotel has a lot to offer for guests wanting to stay in the heart of the city. The Radisson Blu has a beautiful restaurant, called Vivace, on the 13th floor, a pool deck on the 8th floor and a fully equipped gym located on the 10th floor.
An additional benefit officed to all guests staying in suites or penthouses is that these guests are able to access the business class lounge which offers delicious snacks and beverages throughout the day. The view from the lounge overlooks amazing buildings and is perfectly located on the west side of the building, making it the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner, or two ;)
The Vivace Restaurant, offers all day dining with a fantastic buffet breakfast that has some scrumptious croissants and roasted coffee flavoured muffins. The dinner menu is suited for everyone, including the vegetarians offering a beautifully presented seared salmon dish as well as a tasty roast vegetable salad. As a self proclaimed foodie, the presentation and taste of the food at the Vivace Restaurant most certainly deserves recognition. 
Unfortunately, I stayed at the hotel during winter and during the coldest weekends of the season but the pool deck at the RadissonBlu is perfectly located on the 10th floor at the hotel and is in and amongst the biggest buildings in the city. This spot makes for a pretty cool location in Spring and Summer. Speaking of the perfect location, on the 31st of September the Radisson Blu Sandton will be launching "Friday Sunsets" with a live DJ at the pool deck which will make it the best place to kick start the weekend.
