If you're in Sandton for business or a conference, steal an hour (or two!) to stretch your legs and explore one of the most energetic cities on the continent. After all, lunch breaks give you a chance to relax and help you recharge for the afternoon ahead.

We found six things to do in Sandton during your lunch break that range from the spectacular to the serene. Here's our list:

The mini-pamper

Of course, the ultimate business hotel in Sandton, The Maslow Hotel, has a luxurious Africology Spa within it. Pop across to The Maslow and let the highly skilled spa therapists pamper you with a quick facial, pedicure, or massage. It'll set you straight for a fantastic afternoon!

The hearty lunch

But if you're jonesing for a hearty lunch, Lacuna Bistro has a sumptuous menu to delight your tastebuds. Pick a table, sate your palate, and get kicking on to your next meeting for the day. 

The shop and schmooze

If retail therapy is more your style, pop next door to Sandton City! Boasting what feels like every single designer store there is, Sandton City is the best spot for shoppers and fashionistas.

Bask in the sun

The Maslow has one of the most gorgeously serene gardens in Sandton, with thick, tall trees that insulate the hotel from the bustle of Sandton, making it a great place to clear your head. Order a picnic basket from Lacuna Bistro and make the most of your lunch break.

Art Makes You Smart

You could also get a little cultural and pop in at one of the art galleries in Sandton, take a meander through the exhibitions and – if you're feeling brave – purchase a piece to take home with you!

You'll find the Candice Berman Fine Art Gallery 15 minutes away from The Maslow Hotel. The Gallery is great if you're looking to pick up a piece for home, as the team is committed to showcasing and exhibiting work from established and emerging South African artists. The Gallery also offers professional framing services, so it's a great one-stop shop if you're an aesthete.

Let Off Steam With a Team

But if you're keener on letting off some steam during your lunch break, head to the Sandton Action Sports Club: Action Hockey, Netball, Soccer, and Cricket league matches happen here, and you can also look forward to the funny-but-fun Bubble Soccer! Bubble Soccer sees competitors bouncing off each other in pursuit of a soccer ball.

With so much to do around you, it's time to step away from those reports, PowerPoint presentations, and conference notes and step out to Sandton.
