The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa


Tucked in the leafy suburb of Sandhurst, in the heart of Sandton. The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa is perfectly situated to explore the many gems of Johannesburg – a vibrant world-class city with a fascinating mix of expressive art, eclectic culture, awe-inspiring landscapes and intriguing history. Set within a magnificent 10 acres of land, with lush gardens. This luxury hotel offers an exclusive escape where each and every detail has been considered to guarantee your absolute comfort. Right from being welcomed by name, your every need will be anticipated by a 24-hour butler and an abundance of highly-attentive, expert staff. Your Saxon experience will be one of unrivalled hospitality. Each elegant suite provides an intimate realm of luxury where you’ll awake from the fine-linens of your king-bed to fresh flowers, a newspaper and a delectable full breakfast daily. 

 For a more personal experience, choose one of the hotel's three Villas, nestled within lush indigenous gardens, comprising tastefully-decorated individual suites. Each secluded Villa has its own private terrace and heated plunge pool, and for those who opt for further intimacy, two of the Villas include a private spa suite.
