Meticulously landscaped gardens surround The Saxon Spa and Studio, which resides in its own 880-square-meter building. For those looking for something different, try the hydro-capsule, chromatherapy and sound therapy treatments, and experience the African Byzantine-style, mosaic-tiled chamber, where exotic rasul ceremonies take place (warm muds and therapeutic steam, anyone?). Interesting fact: Prior to its reopening in June 2000, Saxon was the personal residence of insurance magnate Douw Steyn and hosted Nelson Mandela during the preparation of his autobiography.
