The Saxon Boutique Hotel and Spa is located among the tree-lined Avenues of the Sandhurst suburb of Johannesburg, within the vibrant Sandton business district. The Saxon’s decor is thematically African incorporating handcrafted ethnic art and artefacts, while the imposing entrance foyer is centred around two converging sweeping staircases and a glass dome illuminating the reception area. This radiates out to the piano lounge, smoking library and dining room.
 

Accommodation comprises twenty-four open-plan Egoli suites decorated with African artwork and latticed shuttered bay windows, mostly overlooking the garden or pool. Three presidential suites each have a separate entrance hall, four-poster bed, lounge and dining areas, while the superior Nelson Mandela Platinum Suite is appointed to the highest standards and extremely spacious with a jacuzzi and steam room. Surround-sound state-of-the-art audio-visual entertainment is provided with wide screen televisions as complemented by business oriented technology.

 

To the rear of the six-acres of landscaped gardens that feature a koi pond terrace, is a large 920-square metre heated swimming infinity pool, with atmospheric underwater piped music.

 
 

There is also garden yoga, a fully-equipped gymnasium and cinema and conference facilities. Oh and not to forget the Essense Skin and Body Salon providing holistic health care and Dermalogica products-based grooming treatments.


Fine dining of personalised chef-prepared dishes specialising in African game and seafood are paired with wines selected from a comprehensive and distinguished cellar collection. Other facilities include the Olive Bar for cocktails leading off the pool terrace and private party dining library. The gallery of wines forming the upper floor of the restaurant is an effective and novel display.

The The Saxon Hotel and Spa is a member of The Small Leading Hotels of the World group and its awards include being voted among the 100 Top City Spas of the World by Tatler UK in 2007. The hotel also has the distinction of being the home of former South African president Nelson Mandela upon his prison release when he edited his autobiographical ‘Long Walk to Freedom.’
