Four Seasons The Westcliff 

Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff salutes the indomitable spirit of South Africa’s women with a series of promotions and experiences in time for Women’s Month in August. The iconic Johannesburg hotel has created a programme with something to suit all tastes.

The programme includes special rates at the hotel’s spa from Mondays to Thursdays for the month of August. These spa sessions may be combined with an outdoor yoga workshop, perhaps followed by a healthy breakfast. For groups who prefer something a little more decadent, Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff offers a customised high tea for groups.

The hotel is also making its catering service available to outside groups. “This is a wonderful option for women’s groups who would like to enjoy our renowned food and service at a venue of their own choice,” Sebastien Carre, Regional Vice President and General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff comments.

Businesspersons who want to enjoy all that the hotel presents from this perspective in its stunning setting are able to book a choice of banquet areas, from the Après Spa to the Rose Garden and the Jacaranda Garden.
