About Us

At the heart of the City of Gold, beneath the warm sunshine in the opulent, tree-lined suburb of Sandhurst, lies the enchanting Saxon Hotel. A uniquely perfect blend of rich cultural history and contemporary five-star service, the Saxon is situated on ten acres of magnificent indigenous gardens, providing a private and peaceful retreat like no other.

At the Saxon we create our own standards. Every detail is considered, from the quality of the food to the finer points of our warm hospitality, you can expect only the best. The best is what we know, it is entrenched in the roots of our African spirit. On arrival at the Saxon you will be greeted warmly by our arrivals staff and our Concierge, working together as a family to ensure your stay is an unforgettable one. The sense of space, the landscaped gardens and remarkable infinity pool set a serene backdrop for a restful journey. You become aware of the sights and sounds and the warm atmosphere as you arrive at the entrance with its sweeping staircase. The lounge and terrace offer views over the gardens.

We treat every day as a journey to make you feel at home. At sunrise our Chefs visit the vegetable garden to handpick the day’s ingredients which will inspire the seasonal menus. The tables are laid, the gardens are tended to, fresh flowers are arranged and the Butlers prepare themselves for a day of service.

Throughout the day our team continues to work behind the scenes to make your stay pleasurable and enjoyable. The Pastry Chefs are masters at crafting delectable pastries for an indulgent High Tea. You will always feel at home, whether you choose to relax on the sunlit terrace or enjoy a leisurely lunch under the canopy of fig trees.

The Concierge is on hand at all times to assist with information and advice. In the evening, as our Butlers turn down the beds and add the final touches to your rooms, our Chefs and Sommeliers are preparing for dinner. You can take in the spectacular African sunset before heading to one of the Saxon restaurants for an unforgettable culinary experience.

Every day at the Saxon is different and brings a renewed sense of adventure. It is this Africa that beckons you, the Africa that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.

Best of the Best

The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa is perfectly situated for exploration of the many gems of Africa's financial capital, Johannesburg — a vibrant, world-class city with a fascinating mix of art, eclectic culture, awe-inspiring landscapes and intriguing history.

Sustainability

The Saxon is committed to a comprehensive green programme, which includes recycling practices, organic gardening and environmentally friendly marketing collateral.

The energy-saving programme includes energy-efficient lighting as well as centralised control of in room lighting control and time-controlled external lights. Within the Saxon environment all the buildings have been designed with thermal glazing to help control temperatures and reduce energy consumption.

All water heaters have been replaced with heat pump technology, reducing the energy consumption of the boilers. Grease-traps are used to prevent contamination of waste water systems, and the waste is disposed of through accredited waste companies. All our mechanical systems are fitted with noise controllers in an effort to prevent noise pollution. Spill kits are available in case of accidental spills. We implement a strict programme of waste separation at source and comprehensive waste recycling.

We have stayed at the Saxon Hotel on 3 different occasions and have loved the quietness and serenity of the environment. Our stays have been for only 1 night as we were either on our way to Safari or returning from Safari. The Saxon was the perfect place and now it feels like home. I would highly recommend the Saxon for anyone visiting Johannesburg.
