So far I can gladly say that 2017 is off to a good start. The exploring of awesome places across South Africa continues with the first stop of 2017 being the Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff. This is one of those places I would only visit once or twice a year when I am in the mood to splurge
(my broke ass can’t afford it on a regular basis lol). It is a 5 star hotel so you can expect everything from the rooms to the food and service to be of stellar quality 24/7. My day started with a soothing 60 minute head-to-toe massage to get my body ready for the hectic year ahead. Their spa facilities are the perfect serene hideaway from the busy city life, just one treatment will have your mind, body and soul feeling rejuvenated. The venue has nine treatment rooms which overlook the sparkling outdoor infinity pool which totally looks like it has healing powers. If you are looking to make a booking the spa is open daily from 9am-8pm. Money well spent (now I am broke 🙁 ).
Once I was done getting my body brought back to life, I enjoyed a quick lunch with friends at the hotel restaurant, Flames. All I can say is the the name suites the venue very well because everything from the food to the views is 1 million “Fire Emojis”. Stunning views that also overlook the Johannesburg Zoo so on some days if you are lucky you might get to see elephants from the restaurant. The food was delicious, cooked to perfection and all the flavours matched magically. Everything you order here will be worth it, even their gourmet pap is delicious and even better when paired with a local wine or beer.
Awesome day spent with awesome people making the perfect start to what I hope will be the best year of my life. You can look at spending anything between R600-R700 on lunch for 2 and for a spa treatments they range from R2000-R7000 for non-members of the Four Seasons. Here’s to more travels and awesome experiences in 2017!
