Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons The Westcliff

67 Jan Smuts Ave., Johannesburg, Gauteng, 2193, South Africa Fodor's Choice

The iconic Four Seasons The Westcliff is the paragon of a luxurious urban resort. Perched atop a hill, its view of Johannesburg’s urban forest (and purple haze of jacarandas in spring) provides an exquisite setting. All 117 rooms offer immaculate accommodations along with all the refinements you’d expect from a five-star establishment. The resort’s business facilities are equally impressive. Staff exude a love for Johannesburg and are quick to recommend places of interest to international visitors. Guests are also offered escorted tours of inner-city cultural hubs like Maboneng Precinct and Braamfontein. Expect nothing short of impeccable dining with a South African flair at Flames, which is accessible via panoramic glass elevators.
