Our vision

We are committed to making a difference each day, to offering consistent and efficient service, and to delight and satisfy our guests in every interaction we have. We aspire to lead the tourism sector in sustainable development and to inspire others. The Saxon is a luxury hotel that provides an environment of stylish elegance, where guests feel welcome and free to be themselves. This is accomplished by orchestrating an experience that is expertly directed to leave only what is truly desired.

The Saxon experience is an authentic reflection of the surroundings of the property that imparts a sense of harmony and wellbeing and delivers lasting memories. It is what sets the Saxon apart in this competitive tier and allows the hotel to deliver a kind of luxury that cannot be possessed but only experienced.

The Saxon is emboldened by luxury, masterfully designed, staffed and operated in the most desirable residential area in Johannesburg. It is authentic to the core, yet loyal to a set of powerful values that provides a solid foundation for success.
