The Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff

At the end of a week on safari, we enjoy staying in Johannesburg for one night before the long flight home to the States.  At the end of our most recent safari, we tried the The Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff.  And, now, we need to stay at least two days in Johannesburg at the end of our next safari so that we have more time to spend at this splendid resort within a city.

Jen's Take

1. The spa provides a top-notch 90 minute massage.

2. The pool is glorious; the Bloody Mary even better.

3. The view from Flames is so amazing it's worth seeing at night and during the day.

4.  Get a room with an outside terrace from which you can sip pinotage.

Ian's Take

1. Eat the best burger of your life at Flames.

2. The service was amazing; everyone always seemed to know I was "Mr. Taylor."

3.  A great outdoor bar area (pictured above)

4. Workout in the state of the art gym.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

1. The hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport, and traffic can be heavy at times.

2.  The property is hilly, but they provide on demand golf cart service if you aren't up for the hills.

3.  Though the restaurant is popular with locals, the Hotel is also popular with Americans.  So, you may hear some familiar accents.
