The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa is taking its renowned luxury further with a new bespoke and sustainable amenities range that will be launched on 1 December 2021.
This amenities range, which will be retailed at the Saxon Spa, is proudly South African and was developed by local experts for the Saxon’s guests. It has its own unique signature fragrance, is made of the finest local ingredients, and has a beautifully created logo and design for its packaging.
Says the Saxon team: “The core values of the Saxon, as in making each guest feel at home and evoking a sense of belonging, the heart of our hospitality offering and the unique feeling our guests take home with them, formed the basis of the journey the hotel took in developing the bespoke Saxon SOUL range.
“Over the past 21 years at the Saxon, a very distinctive Saxon soul and personality developed, encompassing the feeling of stillness and being at home, entrenched in the proudly South African luxury we offer our guests. The soul of the Saxon is evoked in the senses of our guests, by the fragrances, sights and sounds they experience at the spa and hotel, as well as the tastes of the food presented in our restaurant. At its core we aimed to recreate this soul with this new range of amenities.”
The team points out that only the finest natural ingredients – locally and sustainably sourced – have been used in the development of the SOUL range of amenities.
These locally produced products contain no parabens or sulphates, are not tested on animals, and are packaged in recycled and recyclable bottles, ensuring that guests can enjoy SOUL safe in the knowledge that there is a minimal environmental impact created by these luxurious products.
“We embarked on the journey of developing our own bespoke amenities brand to enhance our sustainability and responsibility towards green initiatives and to support local communities and businesses, enabling us to offer our guests a bespoke local product, allowing them to take a bit of the Saxon home with them.
“The SOUL range, in orange, golden and beige hues, represents the tones used in the décor throughout the property, evoking the existing look and feel of the hotel. Our initial launch will include body wash, body lotion, hand wash, hand lotion, shampoo, conditioner, room spray and soap bars, to name a few.
“Designed by a leading local fragrance expert, the SOUL fragrance comprises of earthy, warm tones and was inspired by the indigenous wild fig trees across the property. The scent also includes notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and amber – representing the design and feel of the suites at the Saxon – as well as jasmine, synonymous with the relaxation elements of the Saxon Spa, adding an exotic, rich and sweet note,” states the Saxon Team.
