Expert Review

Known as the "Pink Palace," the five-star, 84-room Westcliff sits on a prestigious ridge overlooking the city's green belt of the northern suburbs. A classy retreat, with its hillside setting and cascading gardens, it features elegant accommodations in nine separate villas. Rooms and suites, individually decorated by a well-known South African interior designer, come with mood lighting; plush robes; pop-up television at the foot of the bed; writing bureau; international plugs; internet access (extra charge); butler station; and oversized marble bathrooms with Molton Brown toiletries. Private balconies grace most rooms, overlooking the zoological gardens or one of the cobbled courtyards. Dining options include La Belle Terrasse and Loggia which serves international cuisine with a South African twist paired with stunning vistas; the Conservatory and Pool Terrace, known for its afternoon teas; and the Polo Bar with a light lunch and tapas menu. For guests in need of pampering, the Botanica Spa Suites offer a selection of facial and body treatments.
