45 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport on the suburb of Sandhurst, lies the exclusive private retreat 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.

The entrance exudes an air of quiet majesty with its sweeping feature staircase and spectacular chandelier. Looking towards the 1805 Bar, Piano Lounge, Cigar Lounge and Qunu, the neutral shades of the interior reflect the tones and textures of Africa.

The central point of the Saxon is the impressive infinity pool. The pool terrace is the ideal relaxation area for spending leisure time, taking in the superb sunset views and admiring the well stocked Koi pond.
