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.
- Panoramic View Deluxe Room
Step out onto your private balcony to watch the sun rise over the city, or enjoy a starlit nightcap before lounging on your king-size bed, surrounded by African-inspired touches.Details
- Royal Suite
A grand lobby entrance reveals a staircase and a private elevator, both leading up to your suite’s two upper floors, where three bedrooms, a dining room set for eight people, a separate study, a lounge and a private gym are awaiting your arrival.Details
- Presidential Suite
The living room’s wall of windows opens up to panoramic views in this contemporary suite, set in our Golden Jubilee Residence, while the dining table invites family and friends to join you for a meal shared by the fireplace before toasting to an evening well spent on your private terrace.Details
- Panoramic View One-Bedroom Suite
Airy and welcoming, these spacious suites are filled with natural light that brightens every corner, from the living room to the separate bedroom, while the private terrace provides a breath of fresh air.Details
- Superior Room
Hand-embroidered accent pillows and tasteful animal prints mixed with contemporary furnishings create an inviting place to which to return after a day spent exploring the city.Details
Linger for as long as you’d like after your treatment at Après Spa, the city’s only outdoor spa lounge.
Set atop a lush canopy of green, this is where you come to get away from it all. Lose yourself in the natural serenity that comes with an al-fresco massage or a quiet moment in our eucalyptus-scented steam room.
- Be part of the scene
Start your morning with a visit to the atelier of prominent designer Gert-Johan Coetzee to discuss the details of a custom piece designed just for you, followed by an afternoon stop at a local artist’s studio, where you’ll get a first-hand glimpse into our city’s emerging art scene before coming back to the Hotel for a private evening concert.Details

Johannesburg is a complex, sprawling city that can be a bit challenging to navigate on your own, so let us connect you with a local guide from Past Experiences who will take you on interesting itineraries – specializing in anything from archaeology to shopping to food to photography.

Stop by Westcliff Deli and pick up one of Executive Chef Keith Frisley’s Gourmet Chicnics – featuring a collection of inventive bites such as handmade smoky paprika chips, quinoa wraps with sautéd prawns and fresh pineapple, and chicken-liver pâté with watermelon preserve – on which to feast during a stroll through Delta Park or Johannesburg Zoo.
