Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff Johannesburg


The iconic Westcliff Hotel was given a Four Seasons makeover in 2014 and is now a stylish urban resort. Its hillside location means that wonderful panoramic views can be enjoyed from the bar, lounge and expansive terraces.

With its numerous buildings that house the 117 rooms and suites, the hotel resembles a hillside village with courtyards and gardens. The facilities you would expect from a modern luxury hotel are all here including a spa with nine treatment rooms, a fitness centre and a choice of bars and restaurants showcasing cutting edge and contemporary cuisine.
