Westcliff hotel to become Four Seasons Johannesburg

14 May 2013 by Tom Otley
The Westcliff hotel in Johannesburg will become the Four Seasons Johannesburg, Business Traveller has learned. The property was in 2012 sold by Orient–Express to a joint venture partnership between Albwardy Investment, a Dubai-based private investment company, and Hotels Properties Limited, based in Singapore. At that time, it was announced that the management contract would stay with the Orient-Express group for "up to" 12 months "while the new owner develops its long-term refurbishment plans". Westcliff hotel Business Traveller now understands that it will be Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts which is to be appointed as the new operator of the hotel, and that a substantial renovation programme will soon commence. In a statement the Westcliff would only confirm that the hotel would remain an Orient-Express until June. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts had no comment.
