Joburg and Surrounds, South Africa

Nestled in the exclusive Sandhurst suburb of Sandton, the Saxon makes a world class statement of ethnic African elegance, combined with personalised attention to detail. With its roots in the heart of Gauteng, it has drawn the warmth of the city that bred it - from the world it has won its refinement and ease.

The welcoming entrance with stately staircase sweeps around a central glass dome, permitting natural light to blend with and enhance the contemporary African decor and handcrafted ethnic art effects. Leading off this area is a boutique shop, piano lounge, smoking library and the dining room. Set in six acres of lush landscape gardens, the Saxon has been designed to capture and embrace its natural environment. One of the design themes is the extensive use of water. The central point of the water theme is the magnificent nine hundred and twenty square metre swimming pool.
