The legendary Westcliff Hotel, perched on its leafy hillside overlooking Johannesburg’s most desirable suburbs, has been transformed with top to toe renovations by new owners Four Seasons, re-opening in December 2014. Its reputation as one of the most exclusive addresses in town is upheld by glorious views, world class restaurants with a Michelin starred chef in charge, and sumptuous contemporary elegance. Laid out like a modern day Tuscan village around courtyards and manicured gardens stepped down the side of the ridge, with two swimming pools and a brand new spa, it is an oasis of peace and sophistication set apart from the city bustle.
All the 117 spacious guest rooms and suites open onto balconies or garden terraces and have been updated with cool contemporary elegance, reflecting the African setting with gorgeous textiles and patterns on the luxurious soft furnishings. All the technology you’d expect from a five star hotel is discretely incorporated into a classic country house atmosphere with fresh flowers and a complimentary newspaper, a personal espresso machine and a palatial polished marble bathroom furnished with thick fluffy towels and bathrobes.
Cuisine is crafted by Chef Dirk Gieselmann formerly of the three Michelin star Auberge d’Ill in France. His creativity is showcased in View, a temple of urban chic and contemporary culinary art with a chef’s show kitchen. Flames is a relaxed eatery with a distinctly South African flavour enjoying panoramic views from its open terrace. Or choose intimate food and wine pairings at the Cellar Door, casual coffee and gourmet sandwiches at the Deli, or a refreshing and healthy light meal at the Apres Spa.
A child friendly swimming is set in the beautifully manicured gardens, and an 82 ft lap pool beside the new spa where you’ll find state of the art treatment rooms and an outdoor spa lounge. Business travellers will discover that as well as the convenient location between the CBD and Sandton there are excellent 24hr business services, a fitness centre and jogging trails in the extensive three hectare grounds.
Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff represents the pinnacle of luxury in an enviable leafy location, quickly re-establishing its deservedly iconic status.
