Widely regarded as one of the finest hotels in Africa, The Saxon is an exclusive spot from which to base your stay in Johannesburg. On numerous occasions it has been voted the ‘World’s Leading Boutique Hotel’, and it’s not hard to see why given its desirable location in a tranquil suburb among six acres of landscaped gardens.
Relaxation is a priority, enhanced by a high level of service and a dreamy setting of tasteful African elegance and lush tranquil greenery. A destination in itself, most of our clients will retreat to The Saxon for a few days of laidback luxury either before or after a South African safari or wider tour of the Rainbow Nation.
Not to be missed during your stay is the buffet brunch – served at either Qunu or on a Sunday on the Fig Terrace. This exquisite offering serves up a stunning array of local flavours, such as ‘Springbok, egg and Parma ham’. To celebrate a special occasion, nothing beats the tasting menu at Luke Dale Roberts X the Saxon restaurant.
After a day spent exploring the culture of Johannesburg, head to the Saxon Spa for a haven of indulgence, where signature treatments include the Saxon Himalayan Journey. And before you retreat back to your suite or villa, why not peruse the incredible wealth of art which adorns the walls of this five-star retreat?
53 Suites and Villas. Each is designed in a contemporary, elegant African style, boasting first-class amenities. The suites in the main hotel are perfectly placed close to all of the luxury facilities, while the villas are tucked away in a quieter location for additional peace and privacy.
Transfer: 35 minutes from Johannesburg Airport.
