After acquiring and managing the Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club since 2003, the owners have decided to enter into a long term lease agreement with the well established group, BON Hotels. As of 3 April 2014, the Riviera on Vaal Hotel will be operated by BON Hotels. The adjacent Riviera on Vaal Country Club and Zorgvliet Spa will remain under the owner’s management. Zorgvliet Spa recently moved its location, now situated at the Riviera on Vaal Country Club. A new Zorgvliet Spa branch at Maccauvlei on Vaal has also recently opened its doors.
“We were very fortunate that BON Hotels employed the majority of the Hotel’s current staff,” says Melanie van Schalkwyk, co-owner of the Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club and owner of Zorgvliet Spa. “I am very excited about this new beginning for Riviera on Vaal Hotel, as BON Hotels will certainly add value to our property in the years to come.” The hotel will be re-named, BON Hotel Riviera on Vaal.
In the words of Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels, “We look forward to waking her up to her former glory, with a more modern look and feel and a particular focus on providing excellent service to clients, suppliers and most of all, the guests!”
