The Saxon Hotel and Villas
Rated as one of the world’s leading hotels, The Saxon Hotel and Villas is a five-star oasis in every sense. Set on ten landscaped acres in Johannesburg’s exclusive Sandhurst district, known for its leafy tree- lined avenues, The Saxon offers a true urban retreat – the drive up to the entrance is enchanting. Nelson Mandela chose to complete his autobiography here and guests can stay in his former suite. Originally a private home, there is still an atmosphere of a grand residence with personalised, discreet service and a vast collection of African art.
Each of the luxurious rooms is fully equipped with a business area and technology making it perfect for working travellers. Indulge in the enormous pool and the 24-hour fitness centre with personal trainer on request, as well as the award-winning spa with its innovative treatments. Breakfast on the sun-kissed deck (we love the freshly shucked oysters) can be spent watching the Weaver birds build their nests. Both hotel restaurants, the Qunu and the famed Luke Dale-Roberts, serve gastronomic delights.
