We recently visited the exceptional Four Seasons Hotel, The Westcliff for 24 hours. Here are 4 things we loved most

1. Checkout time is 12pm

Yes you read correctly. Checkout for this special staycation is 12pm. Can you imagine chewing on your crisp croissant, followed by the best Eggs Benedict, overlooking the city of gold, and then being able to return to your room for a lie in or a bubble bath? Or hey why not book a spa treatment?


This bastion of luxury hotel chains always goes above and beyond however this is where they exceed. This iconic hotel is the grande dame and the fact you can also luxuriate until noon is just the cherry on top.And at no extra charge.

This package is incomparable when it comes to a romantic staycation. When you spend money and leave your home, it best be worth it and boy oh boy is this worth every cent. Not only will you stay in one of their charming rooms with a view but it also includes bubbles,chocolate truffles and macarons upon arrival, dinner at Flames and breakfast too.

3. The four course dinner at Flames is a culinary delight

This restaurant offers a  bonanza of highly tasty, exceptionally executed dishes. Dinner alone is worth a toast, in an intimate (COVID safe) romantic setting, which allows for a relaxing dining experience, like sitting in a bed of roses. Expect a delectable mushroom risotto dish, a deconstructed strawberries and cream masterpiece all accompanied by the finest wine.

4. It's not just a staycation, it's a journey which unlocks the city's splendour

With dreamy cobbled pathways and boardwalks that link the reception to the restaurant to the spa and to all the hotel rooms, the picturesque aesthetic of this hotel allows for a village-like feel. It feels as if you’re 1000km away, and yet you’re right in the heart of the city. The view is hands down the best there is, especially during our unmatched Jacaranda season. As an experience, and if you’re a wanderluster, its hard to beat.


This hotel showcases Jozi in all her raw beauty and it really makes you fall head over heels in love with her, amidst all the external chaos.
