Happy New Year everybody! Wishing you all an amazing and blessed 2018.
For our 6th wedding anniversary, my husband took me to The Saxon to celebrate. The Saxon is a luxurious hotel nestled in the heart of Sandhurst, Nelson Mandela stayed there after being released from prison and spent time editing his autobiography there. We actually should have gone there for my birthday but things didn’t go as planned so we moved our visit to our anniversary. My husband had booked us into the Saxon Spa for the Time Together, Heaven on Earth package which is also referred to as the couple’s VIP package and is about 3.5 hours long. Upon arrival we were offered a welcome drink and snacks and then showed to the change rooms where they had the most luxurious gowns ready for us, they were so warm too like they were being kept toasty just for us.
We then made our way to the waiting area which had an outdoor shower, a plunge pool and a dip pool. Our first treatment was a 60min Swedish full body massage which was exactly what the doctor ordered. Naturally I passed out during that. We then moved on to a Classic Facial (Elemis), I can boldly say this was the best facial I have ever had. My face was exfoliated, masked and other things that I was too dazed to pay attention to, all I know is that my face felt amazing after that facial. Our last treatment was a 30min foot massage which ended off with a paraffin wax, bliss! We had to wake up from this amazing experience and they had a cheese platter waiting for us with champagne, it was placed near a private Jacuzzi for us to use. The End.
Honestly the best part of this experience for me was the facial, best I have ever had and if you ever have a chance to go there, it is highly recommended.
