Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, The Saxon in Johannesburg is a luxurious home away from home, with excellent service and a wide range of facilities to ensure guests' stay is a happy one. Located in Johannesburg's Sandton suburb, the hotel is nearby the main business district of the city. Ideal as a stop-over before moving on to another destination, the hotel is quietly exclusive and very accommodating, with a charmingly stylish atmosphere.
The property offers a range of room choices, from Executive Luxury Rooms to a variety of suites and a high end villa, all of which are well-appointed and decorated in contemporary Africa decor. Throughout your stay the Saxon's extremely helpful butler service is on hand to assist you, from making restaurant reservations to helping you to settle into your room. The rooms are very spacious and inviting, with some boasting a Jacuzzi, wonderful views of the hotel's lush gardens and walk in showers, along with all manner of mod-cons.
Guests can expect to be spoiled at the award winning Saxon Spa and Studio, with individualised holistic treatments and a lengthy menu of therapies to pamper and relax. For those wishing to squeeze in some exercise time, the fitness centre is ideal, with a strong selection of gym equipment on offer. One of The Saxon's delights however, is the culinary pleasures that are served up in the hotel's restaurants.
The Saxon is approximately 45 min - 1 hour drive from Johannesburg International Airport (depending on traffic) and 5 - 10 min drive away from Sandton.
Close-by Johannesburg's major business, cultural and shopping centre.
Read what our previous clients thought of Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa
Very stiff and somewhat impersonal service. Not much to do in the area.
One of the finest hotels I have stayed at anywhere in the world. The staff Is exceptional. The Luke Dale Roberts restaurant is a night of special dining not to be missed when staying in the hotel.
