In the tree-line suburb of Sandhurst, the award-winning Saxon Hotel offers world-class elegance and luxury in the heart of Johannesburg.
Once a lavish private home and host to many honored guests, the hotel still lives up to its glamorous past. Accommodations consist of luxury rooms, suites, and villas. The rooms are decorated in the Saxon’s signature style with plush furnishings interspersed with Eastern influences and African artefacts. The luxury rooms and suites feature an open-floor plan including a spacious lounge and dining area. The rooms include king-sized beds in the finest linen and elegant slippers and robes. Each room comes with a Bang & Olufsen HD LCD screen television and Blu-ray DVD player, together with a state-of-the-art surround-sound music system, including all radio stations, full gaming interface and digital music library. The generous separate bathroom has an oversized bath and a walk-in shower.
For the last word in refined elegant, guests can choose to stay in the Nelson Mandela Presidential Suite named after the South African President and Nobel-Prize Winner who used the hotel as his sanctuary in which to complete his book Long Walk to Freedom. The suite can be accessed from a private glass-enclosed elevator. This premiere suite is ornamented in stately African décor. There is an entrance and reception area, guest suite, a lounge and dining area, guest bathroom, a seating area, and a business area with full business desk, complimentary Wi-Fi, international multi plugs, and iPod docking station. A four-poster bed, walk-in closet, jacuzzi tub, private steam room, fully-equipped butler’s kitchen with twenty-four-hour butler service and chef is befitting of a president, king, or dignitary.
