Welcoming 25 and celebrating my birthday was the perfect excuse to experience the recently renovated Saxon Spa.



The luxurious Saxon Spa is the perfect way to unwind from the bustling Johannesburg. You immediately step into the an oasis nestled in its unique surroundings.  From the Chauffer driven arrival from the car park to the spa , and the warm welcome by the friendly staff.

The space is a contemporary African enthusiasts heaves , with unique modern African pieces of wooven crafts and traditional African curios . Complimented by cascading water features, iinfluences of copper and Himalayan salts set the backdrop for a restful journey at the Spa. An early arrival at the Spa is advised so that you can enjoy the special features ranging from the float pool to the yummy healthy goodies.


For my special birthday treat , I opted for the Himalayan Signature Journey which offers the best of a holistic treatment or should I say journey.he Saxon Spa promises this Signature Journey to be the most sublime experience. This premium therapy will leave you feeling completely rejuvenated.

Your supreme journey begins with a welcoming milk foot ritual that soaks away your day-to-day stresses. This is followed by a full body Himalayan salt scrub, with the immersive Saxon signature scent, to renew your skin cells and reveal unbelievably soft, glowing skin. Once the scrub is showered off, your body is indulged with an expert stress-dissolving full body hot granite massage.


This decadent specialised massage uses the stone, together with rhythmic massage movements, to warm and ease the muscles of tension. A cold Rose Quartz crystal is then used to relieve and heal muscular inflammation. This treatment is an absolute must for spa connoisseurs. Heaven! To be honest , I fell off to sleep during the treatment because I was so relaxed.


To end my day of relaxation , I enjoyed a luxury pedicure while sipping on complimentary champagne .  The afternoon of pampering and unwinding was a spiritual and peaceful way to welcome a new age. Hello 25!
