A New Era for the Riviera on Vaal Hotel

Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club

  -04-10:    Riviera on Vaal Hotel

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!”

Three guides for choosing your wedding venue


Choosing the best venue for your wedding is an important part of your wedding planning. This is where you will celebrate a significant milestone in your life and the first thing your guests will see on your wedding day. Make sure the wedding venue you choose answers all the points that will help you choose the best possible option to host your wedding.

Guides to choosing a wedding venue

Guides to choosing a wedding venue

Your wedding theme

First decide what kind of look you’re going for: the kind of style you want for your wedding and the colours you’re going to use and the overall theme. Once that’s decided, you can start searching for wedding venues that suit your wedding theme or style.

The size of your wedding

How big do you want your dream wedding to be? Have you always wanted a huge wedding with everyone you know present? Or do you want a more intimate affair with only your nearest and dearest attending? The size of your wedding will help you narrow down your wedding venue selection. For big weddings you will look at country club and hotel wedding venues and for a more intimate or small wedding a restaurant or even a floating restaurant would be the perfect setting.

Your wedding budget

Perhaps one point that can sober your wedding dreams in one fell swoop – the dreaded BUDGET. What kind of wedding can you really afford? Work out the numbers and see what you’re willing to spend. You can opt to splash out on your wedding venue and cut back on drinks or decorations. Discuss ideas on how you can get what you really want and how to get around any challenges. Remember to also look at the option of having your wedding in off-peak seasons. That decision alone can shave your wedding venue expense quite a lot. Explore DIY options; what can you do yourself – wedding decorations, invitations, favours etc.
