The Four Seasons Hotel opens on Jan Smuts in December

The Westcliff—currently undergoing metamorphosis—will open its doors as the brand-spanking new Four Seasons Hotel in December.

Four Seasons Hotels, Inc is a Canadian company that manages more than 98 properties worldwide. They specialise in five-star establishments only, have won numerous awards and their establishments are regularly ranked as among the best in the world.

They've finally decided to open a hotel in South Africa, and it's right on Jan Smuts in good ol' Jozi! (Address: 67 Jan Smuts Avenue, Westcliff.)

The Four Seasons will swing open their (shiny new) doors on December 1, 2014, making them ready for the Christmas season.

General Manager of South Africa's first Four Seasons, Sebastien Carre, had this to say about this development: "Africa is an important development market for Four Seasons, so now that we are establishing our first city property in Southern Africa, travellers can look forward to news about more urban and resort locations in the future."
