Saxon Boutique Hotel and Spa Johannesburg Reviews
True luxury hidden in the heart of Jo'burg Feb 28, 2008
Occasionally, you come across a thing of splendor that is so unexpected, it makes you wonder how you've gone so long not knowing of it.
I had an opportunity to attend a launch party at The Saxon Hotel in Sandhurst and decadence does not adequately describe this boutique hotel nestled in the green suburb of Sandton, cleverly blended into the residential scenery.
The magnificent and massive wooden gates makes the first impression and the concierges at every corner, always eager to tend to your needs made it feel like I was a guest at the hotel instead of just attending a party.
The service was impeccable, the view from the deck area overlooks the treetops of the city and gives you the feeling that you are in some faraway exotic island resort. The champagne, which flowed all night, was delicious and you glass never emptied.
The food looked impressive although I didn't eat because I had a huge lunch earlier but the "mmmm's" from everyone else tells me it was good.
Although I was only in the atrium and deck areas, the imagination runs away with what the room must look like and not to mention that there is a spa as well.
If you can afford it, this is the most luxurious, decadent, wonderfully spoilt hotel in the area.
I'm thinking of blowing next month's paycheck on a weekend there...
