Come watch the IPL Cricket Tournament at a function venue in Gauteng!

Idle Winds, a function venue in Gauteng, is the perfectly positioned base between the new Wanderers Cricket Stadium in Johannesburg and the Supersport Park cricket grounds in Centurion – the venues for the IPL (Indian Premier League) tournament to be hosted in South Africa between 18 April 2009 and 24 May 2009.

Whether you’re looking for comfortable country accommodation that is seemingly far removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Johannesburg, or simply an award winning restaurant that has become renowned for its international cuisine, then Idle Winds is for you.


We are offering 53 comfortable double or twin rooms with en-suite showers/bathrooms, tea/coffee making facilities and M-Net television in a location that is reminiscent of old Johannesburg. We are located between Supersport Park in Centurion and the Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg and have the added benefit of having all the features of any first-world city in close proximity.


Established in 1989 and winner of many coveted awards, the restaurant at Idle Winds makes every meal a relaxing experience. The cuisine is international and caters for a smorgasbord of tastes and preferences – specializing in meat dishes, seafood, as well as a variety of scrumptious options for vegetarians and the health conscious. In addition to this, there is a world-class wine cellar stocked with the kind of wines that have put South Africa on the list of every wine connoisseur’s places to visit.
