Nestled in the exclusive Sandhurst suburb of Sandton, the Saxon Hotel makes a word class statement of ethnic African elegance, combined with personalized attention to detail. The Saxon Hotel has always been a place of welcome. First as a home, now a home away from home. With its roots in the heart of Gauteng, it has drawn the warmth of the city that bred it – from the world it has won its refinement and ease.
The welcoming entrance with stately staircase sweeps around a central glass dome, permitting natural light to blend with and enhance the contemporary African decor and handcrafted ethnic art effects. Leading off this area is a boutique shop, piano lounge, smoking library and the dining room. Set in six acres of lush landscape gardens, the Saxon has been designed to capture and embrace its natural environment. One of the design themes is the extensive use of water. The central point of the water theme is the magnificent nine hundred and twenty square meter swimming pool.
The Saxon Hotel boasts twenty-six suites of various sizes. All suites incorporate a strong element of African art, latticed shutters covering large bay windows, looking onto the tranquil gardens or pool area. Each suite features large screen televisions, VCR and DVD player with surrounding sound systems. Workstations fitted with multi telephone, fax and ISDN lines, provide each guest with an incomparable experience in business-orientated hospitality.
