The Saxon Boutique Hotel
The Saxon is a luxurious retreat in the quiet suburb of Sandhurst, just minutes away from Johannesburg's business hub of Sandton. This multiple award winning hotel - repeatedly voted best boutique hotel in the world - is an island of sophistication and tranquility in the epicenter of a bustling (and rather chaotic) Johannesburg.
The Saxon is set within six acres of beautifully manicured tranquil gardens. Water is an integral part of the Saxon's architecture, from an expansive infinity pool overlooking the lush front garden to the cozy heated pool and khoi pond in the courtyard, and various water features throughout the interior of the hotel. The soothing sound of trickling water softly reverberates through virtually every corner of the Saxon, establishing a sense of serenity that is further enhanced by an abundance of fresh floral arrangements and oriental rock gardens. The Saxon's policy of not hosting children under 16 is in keeping with its sophisticated and serene ambiance.
The Saxon offers just 24 spacious and luxurious suites, each with large bay windows overlooking the lush landscape or pool area. Each suite features a generous living room, a fully equipped workstation (including multi-line telephone, fax, and wireless internet connection), and a sumptuous king size bed. A wide screen television with a personalized in-room entertainment system. The bathroom includes a lavish bathtub, a large walk-in shower, separate W.C., double vanity and mirrors, and extensive closet space.
The Saxon epitomizes contemporary South African elegance - combining abundant natural light and cool surfaces with warm fabrics and the rich texture of African art and artifacts. The theme is carried throughout the hotel's many common areas, including the stately entrance hall, main dining room, bar, wine cellars, piano lounge, and library. Cuisine is a highlight. The internationally acclaimed team of chefs adheres to a fundamental philosophy of preparing only the freshest local ingredients, creating innovative dishes that are presented with flair. Meals are served in the main restaurant, and private dinners can be requested in the wine cellar or dining library. The Saxon's wine collection is in keeping with the superlative culinary experience, with vintage wines from many of the world's most renowned estates.
Relaxation and pampering are taken to the next level at The Saxon's exquisite Spa and Studio. This world class facility - which has been voted the best Day Spa in South Africa and one of the top 100 City Spas in the world - features the most up-to-date equipment and beauty / wellness treatments, with numerous relaxation areas and treatment gazebos. The spa offers a full menu of treatments, from massages, customized facials, spa manicures and pedicures, to exclusive and innovative treatments, practiced by specialized therapists.
