SOUTH AFRICA: New @ The SaxonFor Immediate Release: UPGRADES AT THE SAXON READY FOR FIFA WORLD CUP WORLD-CLASS LUMINARIES
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA– The construction of three new villas with 29 suites at the Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas & Spa more than doubles the capacity of this luxurious hotel in time to host world leaders gathering soon for the FIFA World Cup. The existing suites are also getting a lift so that the entire hotel will have a fresh, updated look when the project is completed in June.
Designed to offer the same exclusivity and luxury for which the Saxon is known, each of the new, stand alone villas will have its own pool, terrace and lounge, as well as a boardroom which may be converted into a dining room, a satellite kitchen and butler service. Each villa will also have a private entrance from the garage and the skywalk. The suites will be similar to the open plan design of the hotel’s popular Egoli Suites, and will also include six one-bedroom Presidential Suites convertible into three two-bedroom Platinum suites.
Changes in the existing 24 suites in the main hotel will include new beds, linen, TV, blue ray DVD players, carpets/rugs, 1000 thread count linen, toweling and Saxon robes, mp3 docking stations, new integrated lighting systems, advanced air conditioning controls, free use of laptop in every suite as well as free wireless internet access. Also, one of the in-room telephones will be converted to a mobile phone for use during the guest’s visit.
The Saxon, a favorite among discerning leisure and business travelers alike, offers an extraordinary architectural design, full-service spa and gym, African art collection, fine dining and beautiful gardens as well as excellent service. One of the most sought after hotels in the world, it has been voted World’s Leading Boutique Hotel every year for the past eight years at World Travel Awards and was recognized in Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice awards 2009 as the best hotel in Africa.
