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!”

Blankets and Beanies for Children


They say we need to be there for our brothers and sisters in need. Matt’s Foundation encourages you to be there for your brothers and sisters and their children this winter by sponsoring blankets and beanies for the underprivileged children of the Vaal Triangle.

Blankets and Beanies

Blankets and Beanies

Winter tends to catch us by surprise every year and we can never be prepared enough. Matt’s Foundation would like to collect and hand out blankets and beanies to children before winter truly catches up with us. This non-profit organization, supported by the Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club and Maccauvlei on Vaal, provides underprivileged children in the Vaal community with basic needs like food and clothes and this time of the year, blankets and beanies are a definite basic need to keep children warm and assist them in concentrating on their school work, rather than trying to warm up their little hands.

The Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club challenges local companies and individuals to get involved in this initiative and offers the person who donated the most blankets and beanies before 12 June 2013 the chance to win breakfast for two at Matthews Restaurant.

Volunteers are always needed at Matt’s Foundation. Should you want to sponsor winter warmers or assist in delivering blankets and beanies to the children, please contact Matt’s Foundation on 016 420 2245 or helpus@mattsfoundation.co.za.
