The Westcliff, located in the posh northern suburbs of Johannesburg, has the magic touch when it comes to South African hospitality. With an array of lovely, ample-sized rooms replete with lavish marble baths and jutting balconies, each guest chamber gazes upon the neighboring zoological gardens or an enchanting courtyard encased within the resort. Thoughtful touches such as butler stations and heated towel racks are standard amenities here. The Westcliff's hillside setting with cascading, sculpted gardens and elegantly opulent accommodations evokes a bygone era of leisure and refinement in one of the world's most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.
