Saxon Boutique Hotel in spa focus

The award-winning Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas and Spa is offering guests and visitors the opportunity to relax and unwind with a unique Signature Sound Therapy treatment.

Created for guests this special treatment incorporates the use of gongs, cymbals and Tibetan singing bowls and uses the vibration of sounds to balance and restore the body’s natural energy centres.

While the sounds waves work on the chakras, the logical mind is silenced in the alpha or theta mind state. The treatment is performed on a heated water bed with built-in colour therapy that enhances its effectiveness, rebalancing the flow of natural energy.

Other unique treatments include Rhythm Massage, Elemental Massage Therapy and Rasul Chamber.

The Saxon Spa and Studio combines treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy area and is unique in offering outside treatment rooms as well as boasting an outdoor heated pool, indoor jacuzzi and cold plunge pool. Colour therapy is a common theme throughout the spa and is also a visual component of the steam room. Its flotation pool, hydrocapsule and Rasul Chamber combine therapeutic treatments for a relaxing multi-sensory experience.


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. Once home to Nelson Mandela after his release from prison, it was here that he found the serenity to edit his acclaimed autobiography Long Walk to Freedom.

The Saxon boasts 53 suites of various sizes, including 3 new villas located within the property’s lush indigenous gardens. Each suite incorporates a strong element of African art, with state-of-the-art facilities and stunning views over tranquil gardens or the breathtaking pool terrace.

Excellent business amenities, world-class cuisine and a leading spa and fitness centre all help explain why The Saxon was voted Africa’s Leading Boutique Hotel, Africa’s Leading Suite and South Africa’s Leading Boutique Hotel at the World Travel Awards Africa and Indian Ocean gala ceremony.
