Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards
We are extremely proud to have been named the No. 1 City Hotel in Africa and the Middle East in Travel + Leisure’s 2016 World’s Best Awards. The World’s Best Awards reflect the opinions of some of the world’s most experienced travelers.
It is also very exciting that 6 out of the Top 10 in this category is South African hotels. With this award being voted by the readers of Travel + Leisure this clearly shows that South African hotels are delivering on expectations of travelers. A further point to be proud of is the fact that responses from travel industry professionals are not included in the results, meaning that this is purely the opinion of guests.
“We are extremely honored that the Saxon has been recognized by Travel + Leisure’s discerning editors,” said Managing Director George Cohen, who credits the Saxon’s continued success to its core philosophy. “The Saxon serves as a home away from home for many of our esteemed guests. Guests and industry professionals alike continue to honor the Saxon for one simple fact; each guest is treated with the individual attention they require without the compromise of quality or service.”
We hope we will be able to continue to exceed the expectations of our guests, and with our colleagues in the rest of South Africa, ensure that they experience the best our country has to offer.
