Luxury Accommodations Add to South African Experience

Marilyn JonesA hotel can stand alone as a destination anywhere in the world. While traveling throughout South Africa I stayed at several hotels and resorts that were much more than a place to hang my hat and get a good night’s sleep. They had history, character, and charm.

The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa

The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa in Johannesburg was originally a private home. Many esteemed and honored guests — including Nelson Mandela, when he was finishing his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom — stayed in the home. After it became a hotel, villas were added, each like mini-hotels with private lobbies, a bar, and service staff.


In addition to the beautiful grounds, luxuriously appointed rooms, and excellent restaurants, the staff is one of the best attributes of the hotel with their friendliness, professionalism, and willingness to help no matter what is requested by a guest.

Located in the residential area of Johannesburg, it is quiet and serene, very peaceful and relaxing.
