The Saxon has been voted the World’s Leading Boutique Hotel for the last 6 years, and it’s easy to see why. Set in the exclusive suburb of Sandhurst, the Saxon is situated on a leafy avenue, concealed by imposing gates framed by towering trees.
Be welcomed into the grand entrance hall by world-class staff, and sip on a flute of champagne as you admire the clear water of the wraparound pool.
Climb the sweeping staircase and trace Nelson Mandela’s footsteps; after being released from prison, the Saxon was Mandela’s home and it was here that he edited his biography “A Long Walk To Freedom”.
Browse through the boutique shop and visit the smoking library before retreating to the piano lounge, where you can relax as live music resonates through the opulently decorated room.
Alternatively, make use of the fully supervised gym and heated lap pool, before unwinding in the steam room.
Visit the Saxon Spa and Studio, which was voted the Best Day Spa in South Africa 2006 by Les Nouvelles Esthétiques, and named Top 100 City Spa in the World, 2007, by Tatler, UK.
