At the sumptuous Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa, each room is fit for royalty and designed for absolute comfort down to the last detail. Built for leisure the hotel is an island of tranquillity set within ten acres of landscaped gardens. Exclusivity is guaranteed from the moment you enter the immense gate and are chauffeured in a luxury vehicle to the front door.

The hotel prides itself on its art collection, and it would be difficult not to be wowed by the exquisite flower arrangements that always greet visitors in the reception rooms.

Housed on the property that was the former home of business magnate Douw Steyn, this is the place where former president Nelson Mandela found sanctuary to complete his ground-breaking autobiography Long Walk To Freedom. More recently Oprah considers this a home away from home.

Saxon Hotel is also home to fine dining restaurant Luke Dale-Roberts x Saxon, a top attraction for gourmet enthusiasts that comes courtesy of South Africa's global culinary star. For a day visit, the Saxon Spa is a super-luxe escape with the best amenities in the city. Book a treatment and make use of the indoor plunge pool, floatation pool, sauna, steam room and outdoor heated pool. You can also order in a light lunch, making this the perfect hideaway from the hustle of the city.
