About Idle Winds

“The devil is in the Detail”

Idle Winds, located 40 minutes from Pretoria, Sandton and Krugersdorp; is the perfect place in the country, almost in the city. Idle Winds changed hands in 2006 and major renovations, refurbishment and new buildings ensued. Now in her 27th year, Idle Winds has grown and continues to thrive; enjoying new patronage and valuing the long-standing relationships formed over decades. “The devil is in the Detail”

Idle Winds is set in almost 9 hectares and the beautiful gardens, multiple venues and her friendly, long service staff is the perfect venue to ensure that your conferences, product launches, corporate functions, weddings and business meetings are conducted professionally and to specification.

The 58 en suite rooms are comfortable country style accommodation and include a Junior and Senior/Honeymoon suite. Each suite has a private patio and garden.

Enjoy a drink in either the restaurant bar, the gardens or in winter by the fire in the Wagon Wheel Pub.
Our prize winning restaurant is long established and offers superb cuisine, wonderful service and a well-stocked wine cellar.
