About Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas & Spa, The
The Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas & Spa offers elegant luxury in stunning surroundings distinguished by a tasteful South African aesthetic. Prior to its reopening in June 2000, the all-suite hotel was the personal residence of insurance magnate Douw Steyn and hosted Nelson Mandela during the preparation of his autobiography. The ten-acre property, set amidst landscaped gardens, welcomes guests with a hotel entrance featuring contemporary African decor that provides an eye-catching backdrop to a towering spiral staircase that winds around a gleaming glass dome.
Saxon Spa and Studio, built in 2006, occupies its own 880-square-meter facility, in which wet and dry treatments are complemented by innovative spa offerings such as chromatherapy and sound therapy.
