I recently stayed at the Saxon Hotel in Johannesburg, it is a beautiful deluxe property.
It is a small boutique hotel and every room is a suite. They have a wonderful spa, an outdoor pool, beautiful grounds, Piano Bar, small boutique shop and fitness center. The fitness center was small but had everything you needed for a good workout.
I loved the African artwork throughout the property, it had a warm feeling, very homey.
I am a travel agent and belong to Virtuoso, which is an affiliation that offers benefits to my clients at selected deluxe hotels and cruises. When we arrived in our room they had given me the Virtuoso benefits that they give to my clients.
We had a very long flight beginning in California. We arrived at the hotel at dinner time and were really tired. There was a wonderful bottle of South African Red wine waiting for us in our room and our butler brought us all kinds of appetizers to go with the wine.
We had such a good time that we never left our room that night.
Our Butler was very attentive and helped us to get settled in and anything that we wanted she was eager to provide. The hotel had a car and driver pick us up at the airport but I would recommend taking the train. It goes directly to the airport and is a much more direct way to reach the hotel.
The location of the Saxon is in a residential area of beautiful estates. It is in the Sandhurst suburb of Sandton. It is very private and the security is very good. While you cannot walk to the shopping area it is convenient to Sandton where there are a lot of shops and restaurants.
The hotel is happy to provide transfers to the shopping area.
Breakfast was included with our room and the restaurant is charming and the breakfast was fabulous.
The hotel is great for small groups. They have a villa that the group could take over that is really private and very deluxe.
I would highly recommend this hotel for families, small groups and business travelers.
