Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas And Spa


The Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas and Spa is a boutique hotel located in the tranquil suburb of Sandhurst, in the heart of the city for world class shopping and business access. The Saxon's contemporary African interior is light, airy and specious, leaving a lasting impression of stately elegance interspersed with novel Eastern influences and African artifacts.

Originally designed in 1990 as a private residence for Douw Steyn, one of South Africa's leading captains of commerce, the Saxon is a quiet retreat from the outside world that offers panoramic views over the indigenous gardens towards the city skyline beyond.

The crème de la crème is the addition of three new villas nestling in the lush indigenous gardens, comprising individual suites tastefully decorated with natural woods, silks and sustainable weaves. Each Villa has its own private terrace and heated plunge pool and two of the Villas also have a private spa suite. The three villas add an additional 29 suites to the existing 24 suites.

Villa One is a one-story with seven interconnecting Vila Suites in contemporary open-plan style. Villa Two and Three are two-story structures, each featuring seven interconnecting Villa Suites on the ground floor levels. A raised sykwalk leading to the main entrance of the Saxon offers intriguing treetop views over the gardens. Each villa has a private lift to transfer guests from the underground parking garage.
