Very exclusive boutique hotel. Dinner with piano, SPA massage was part of a unique experience. A hot pool, picture below to have a relax time and drinks. All the mini bar drinks are included. Special car service for small distance! Cant miss the michelin star restaurant, but book in advance.

The Saxon is a lovely oasis in the Sandton area of JoBurg. When you first arrive, enormous gates slowly open--shades of Jurassic Park. Inside however it is peace and serenity. We stayed in the main building. The room was spacious and well thought out--living area, large bed, bathroom with enormous soaking tub, separate shower and water closet. Small snacks, reading...

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I stayed at, and one of the top personalised accommodation experiences too. Amenities in the room may just be my overall best, as well as the design and comfort. There are a few shortcomings like the silent rooms are exposed to sound (just like a normal hotel room would be), hot water...

The Saxon is a fortress. In this city of walls, razor wires and electric fences, this hotel is definitely secure. It's in your face secure but you want that. It's the subtle luxury too (except for the gauche "drawings" of the owner with celebrities...funny though). The rooms are large, with all the bells and whistles. Loved how sensible it is...

We arrived here in the afternoon after a very long flight from the states and the front desk suggested a massage. The spa was very nice and the massage was wonderful. We also had dinner at...

Multiple pools, some for swimming, some with Koi fish. Multiple restaurants- gorgeous covered terrace with view, fine dining, African themed, dining service close by in your villa or your room. Beautifully decorated with arts and crafts-...

From the moment you enter until you leave, you feel the level of service oozing out and everyone cannot be more helpful. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and small touches like a free minibar are appreciated (even though we only ever took a coke!). The breakfasts are incredible in every way, and we had lunch on the terrace which...

My family and I arrived at the Saxon on the 11th of August 2016. There were 12 of us (including two children), and we took 5 rooms at Villa 3. The Villa just like the rest of the hotel is simply stunning. We only stayed for one night as we were heading off to Kruger Park the next day. I...
