Hidden historic estate.
Save

Nestled away on a ten-acre estate in the quiet, tree-lined Sandhurst neighborhood, the Saxon Hotel blends a vibrant history with clean lines, contemporary African décor, and manicured gardens.

Insider Tip

Be sure to try the Saxon Himalayan Journey which begins with a welcoming milk foot ritual that soaks away your day-to-day stresses. This is followed by a full body Himalayan salt scrub and a hot granite massage. A cold rose quartz crystal is then used to relieve and heal muscular inflammation. This treatment is an absolute must for spa connoisseurs.

Where You’re Staying

Suites blend marble and wood décor with African artifacts in open layouts, complete with private terraces. Marble bathrooms feature soaking bathtubs and walk-in showers. Select villas are set in lush gardens, each with a private pool. All accommodations include 24-hour butler service.

Where to Dine

Experience locally inspired culinary delight with Qunu’s bold flavors, homegrown seasonal ingredients, and contemporary approach to cuisine. Complement your favorite dish with wine recommended to you by the property's sommeliers. Enjoy lunch at The Terrace, afternoon tea in the Piano Lounge, and an aperitif at the Olive Bar.

Where to Relax

Unwind in the outdoor infinity pool or by the koi pond. The Saxon Spa features a whirlpool, steam room, sauna, relaxation area, nail stations, hair salon, and fitness center. The Saxon African Opulence Signature Journey includes a traditional mielie-meal body scrub, massage using a rungu stick, and skin conditioning with kola nut butter.

What To Do

Tour the Saxon’s on-site art collection. Explore Johannesburg and Soweto on a guided city tour. Visit the Nelson Mandela Museum and Desmond Tutu House. Shop the bustling African Craft Market of Rosebank. Book a safari at Shambala Private Game Reserve.
