City Highlights

Nestled in vast, landscaped gardens, Saxon Hotel is a peaceful haven from which to explore the vibrant, friendly heart of South Africa: Johannesburg. The multi-faceted city has plenty to offer visitors of all tastes - from historic sights of political importance and cultural landmarks, to a wealth of museums, craft markets and art galleries. Whether you want to discover South Africa's traditional roots or explore the optimistic and lively spirit that the city holds for the future, Johannesburg will not disappoint. Saxon Hotel's glorious concierge can arrange a number of excursions for you to make the most of your visit - including the Johannesburg City Tour and the Soweto Tour.

Culture & History

With a turbulent, complex and disquieting history, exploring Johannesburg can be equally sobering, fascinating and inspiring. Illustrating the rise and fall of South Africa's era of segregation and oppression, the chilling and, at times, overwhelming Apartheid Museum is a must-see - using film, audio and live accounts to provide an unsettling insight into the grizzly past. Discover the legal and historical consequences of the struggle at iconic Constitution Hill or the informative Nelson Mandela Museum, or head to Gold Reef City - built around a former gold mine - and explore historic miners' houses and the South African Mint Museum, or enjoy a Victorian fun fair followed by traditional tribal dancing.

Spa & Wellness

Surrounded by a beautiful garden, filled with birds and large areas of calm water, Saxon Spa and Studio offers custom-designed treatments that adopt an holistic approach to promoting all over wellness, such as the Signature Sound Therapy, which uses the vibrations from gongs and Tibetan singing bowls to restore the body's natural healing energy centres. Extensively refurbished for 2016, several new select experiences offer deep rejuvenation, such as the Hammam Journey and Himalayan Salt elements.

In Addition

Thanks to the culmination of the Sommeliers' wealth of experience, Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa has a remarkable wine collection, housed in the two wine cellars. The White and Red Cellars, reminiscent of authentic European and Cape maturation cellars, are unique venues, perfect for a memorable private dining experience.
