The Saxon

Upon his release from imprisonment, Nelson Mandela chose to seek refuge at the Saxon – perhaps he was pleased to be surrounded by the contemporary African décor and ethnic art, or maybe he simply appreciated the deep luxury and serenity offered by this deluxe boutique property. Indeed, the Saxon has become the hotel of choice for visiting luminaries and local dignitaries. Set in six acres of landscaped gardens, the modern exterior of the hotel is an elegant gray that belies the bright, open interior. Inside, the rooms have an airy, sun-drenched feel with light-colored fabrics, honey-blond wood floors, and large bay windows offering expansive views. Guests can enjoy the cigar lounge, spa, restaurant, or the truly impressive 920 square meter infinity swimming pool.
