Four Seasons Westcliff Hotel

High up on the rocky Witwatersrand – or as we call it here in Jozi, the Rand – is where you’ll find us. Despite being in the middle of South Africa’s largest city, our Westcliff Hotel feels like a chic hillside village, with nine sun-splashed villas woven with courtyards, fountains and gardens. Take a ride up our glass elevator for dinner and drinks at View, meet friends for a traditional braai (barbecue) at Flames, or simply step out onto your room’s balcony to enjoy a quiet moment as you admire the endless canopy of jacaranda trees that stretches out before you, which, come springtime, will blanket our northern suburb streets in a sea of purple blooms.

Every single one of the 250 embroidered accent bed pillows throughout our rooms and suites were hand-dyed and embroidered by local artisans.Originally built in 1997, The Westcliff was conceived as an enclave of luxury residents, spread out across nine hillside villas, each featuring private and shared balconies that overlook the panoramic 240-degree view of Johannesburg.
