Relax, dine and rest in style at Saxon Hotel
In the opulent suburb of Sandhurst, in the heart of Johannesburg, Saxon Hotel creates a sumptuous retreat in a ten-acre property graced by indigenous gardens. Awaiting guests at the end of a beautiful tree-lined avenue, the hotel’s breathtaking entrance with its magnificent chandelier, dazzling staircase, and rich collection of sculptures and paintings sets the standard for the rest of the Saxon experience. Elegantly modern yet distinctly African, Saxon Hotel is characterized by high-end services and exclusivity.
Modern Comforts in an African Context
Stone cladding, dark woods and other natural textures are prevalent throughout the hotel’s suites and villas and, together with earthly patterns and textures, create an inviting atmosphere that’s warmly and comfortably luxurious. While privacy is a given regardless of the room you choose, the hotel’s luxury villas, villa luxury suites, as well as the 200 m2 villa presidential suite are detached from the main hotel building, offering maximum exclusivity in tranquil settings enriched with fragrant gardens and sun decks.
Fine examples of the contemporary African style, luxury suites are drenched in African sunlight yet pleasantly cool, with a marble and rich wood décor and fine African sculptures, paintings, and artifacts that create a relaxing ambiance. Most suites feature private balconies that open onto lush gardens.
Relax By the Pool
Much of the social life at the Saxon Hotel gravitates around the hotel’s spectacular infinity pool. Enjoy a colourful cocktail at the pool terrace, watch the Koi fish play in the pond, or bask in the rejuvenating African sun in a comfortable easy chair. The freshness of the surrounding greenery and the crystal clearness of the water, which at night spectacularly reflects the hotel’s main building and its glowing lights, will make an indelible impression on your memory.
Inside the hotel, there are plenty of things to do as well, including stopping by the Piano Lounge, relaxing in the Cigar Lounge, or tasting some special whiskey blends at the Eighteen05 Bar.
Fine Dining, African Style
The Qunu restaurant with its woven lampshades, rich red tones, and hanging gardens promise the ultimate African grill experience. Here you can also enjoy a savory brunch breakfast on the Fig Terrace. For a gourmet fine dining experience, the Luke Dale Roberts X the Saxon adds a unique African flavour to ravishing gourmet dishes and desserts. Paired with South African and international wines, the menu at Luke Dale Roberts X can be enjoyed in a refined setting where Western elegance meets African elements, and where evening skyline vistas complete a rich sensory experience.
After incursions into Johannesburg and other neighbouring areas, you will find a quiet retreat in the Saxon Spa and Studio, where holistic body treatments that rejuvenate your body and promise complete relaxation are a specialty. And you don’t have to worry about getting out of shape with all those gourmet menus, as the hotel’s private fitness centre is open 24/7.
Secluded and serene in spite of its location in one of South Africa’s busiest cities, Saxon Hotel is an oasis of relaxation, rich in comforts and experiences.
