Summer in South Africa: Spa Special at The Westcliff, Johannesburg

December 10, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The WestcliffWe're hardly shy in dishing our hotel pick for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. In Johannesburg, it's The Westcliff, hands down. Just 10 minutes from the city center in an exclusive residential suburb, The Westcliff is perched on a hilltop with sculpted gardens and an infinity pool from where you can spy the elephants in the Johannesburg Zoological Gardens below. Part of the Orient-Express Collection of hotels, The Westcliff offers five-star treatment all the way. The hotel has announced a summer spa special (after all, the sun is shining in the southern hemisphere while we grit our teeth against the snow!) Pamper yourself in one of the three spacious Botanica Spa Suites tucked away in the estate's flowering gardens. Indulge in a two-hour treatment: start off with a body polish and exfoliation, followed with a body wrap of your choice, ending with a back, neck, and shoulder massage. Summer sale price? R1000. Valid until the end of February 2010.
