The Saxon is in six acres of stunning landscaped gardens in a secluded residential area in exclusive Sandhurst. It is an all-suite hotel and was home to Nelson Mandela as he wrote his biography, “The Long Walk to Freedom”. It epitomizes authentic African elegance combined with discreetly personalized attention to detail.

An amazing entrance with a stately staircase sweeping around a central glass dome leads off to a boutique shop, piano lounge, smoking library and dining room. Cool terraces and shaded gazebos adjoin the heated lap pool and immense swimming pool. There are actually six pools on the property, including an outdoor heated pool complete with underwater music, a Spa pool, three heated plunge pools and an impressive infinity edge pool. Other leisure facilities include a fully supervised gymnasium, steam rooms and the Essence Skin and Body Salon, which will ensure that even the most jaded of travellers will feel pampered and relaxed.

The 53 luxury rooms, suites & villas incorporate strong elements of African art, with latticed shutters covering large bay windows looking onto the gardens or pool area. Whether you opt for the Nelson Mandela Presidential Suite, Executive One Bedroom Suite, One Bedroom Suite, Executive Luxury Room or the Luxury Room, you are assured of the highest levels of amenities, facilities and luxury.
