A Day At The Saxon

Nothing quite speaks indulgence like a visit to The Saxon, Jo’burg’s finest five-star hotel and dining experience. The new addition to its luxury offering is the Saxon Spa, a healing respite where thoughtful design is proportionate to the holistic approach to vitality, energy and balance.

Designed by interiors guru Stephen Falcke, the new spa is the city’s most luxurious yet. Facilities include an all-glass couple’s treatment area, sleep room and hammam centre. As you step inside, an oasis nestled in its unique surroundings, cascading water features, a signature fireplace and influences of copper and Himalayan salts set the backdrop for a restful journey. This metropolitan spa offers holistic disciplines, giving guests time to rediscover a healthy and discerning lifestyle.

Throughout your journey, you will find yourself enveloped in the aromas of the Saxon Spa’s signature scent. Created for holistic sensory revitalisation, the scent blends therapeutic notes of Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Rose and Jasmine Petals, Pomegranate Blossoms, Musks, Cedarwood and Sandalwood. Each spa therapy or treatment begins with a welcoming milk foot ritual that soaks away day-to-day stresses and starts your relaxation process. Guests are able to personalise their spa journey by selecting the genre of their background music.

The Saxon Himalayan Signature Journey is the crème de la crème of the spa experiences, indulging guests in a skin renewing Himalayan salt scrub, followed by a stress-dissolving hot Granite stone and soothing, cool Rose Quartz massage. From the healing cleansing of the Hammam, to therapeutic vibrations of the Signature Sound Therapy, to the stress-relieving Rasul Spa Ritual, the Saxon Spa’s Signature Therapies are a unique collection of the ultimate rejuvenating journeys. It is a must for city slickers eager to the hustle and grind of daily life.
