Chicnic in the City
There’s an everyday picnic and then there’s The Westcliff Deli gourmet chic-nic. Launching this Valentine’s Day, couples can order their take-away picnic basket of choice and enjoy it at one of the Hotel’s five recommended picnic spots. Recommendations include the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, which offers a great escape from the inner city with lush green lawns, the opportunity to spot rare bird species and a natural waterfall that forms the centrepiece and backdrop to the gardens; and the James & Ethel Gray park in Melrose, one of the best places in the city to watch the sunset over the Joburg skyline.
Romantic Getaway for Two
This Valentine’s Day, surprise a special someone with a relaxing weekend getaway at Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff Johannesburg and enjoy a one night stay in one of the luxurious contemporary-African accommodations and a romantic five-course dinner at the signature View restaurant, which boasts the most spectacular views of the Jozi city skyline and urban forest below. Couples will also be treated to an a la carte breakfast and late check-out the following day – the perfect ending to a memorable Valentine’s weekend at Four Seasons The Westcliff. Valentine’s Packages start from ZAR 5,520 per couple and can be booked online.
Cooked with Love by Four Seasons
Foodies and hopeless romantics will be spoiled for choice this Valentine’s Day with an entire weekend dedicated to the special day. View, the Hotel’s signature restaurant, offers guests a seasonal gourmet five-course dinner, perfectly paired with the best wines from South Africa and abroad. A linear slot window provides glimpses into the kitchen and the food, exquisitely styled, is theatrically presented and unveiled as art on a plate. The five-course dinner at View is priced at ZAR 960 per person without wine pairing, or ZAR 1,600 per person with wine pairing.
With its earthy, natural palette of colours, Flames Restaurant is all about the easiness and fun of informal dining. The menu is influenced by the enviable outdoor lifestyle and local barbecue or braai, a cross-cultural culinary tradition that is inherently South African. This Valentine’s, Flames guests can enjoy an al fresco Valentine’s brunch with awe- inspiring views on February 13 and 14, 2016, as-well as a mouthwatering seafood dinner buffet on the evenings of February 12, 13 and 14, 2016.
